Advanced Quantitative Imaging of Knee Joint Repair


By (author): Ravinder R Regatte

Over the last two decades, there have been numerous exciting developments in the surgical field of articular cartilage repair. Magnetic resonance imaging plays a critical role in pre-operative surgical planning, through its ability to identify the extent and severity of cartilage lesions. It also plays an important role in post-operative management, by allowing surgeons to noninvasively monitor the morphological status of repaired cartilage tissue. This book covers recent advances in ultra high field MRI and biochemical MRI techniques such as T2 mapping, delayed gadolinium enhanced MRI of cartilage (dGEMRIC), gagCEST and sodium MRI. It is written by a multidisciplinary team including basic scientists, radiologists, orthopaedic surgeons and biomedical engineers. The volume is an ideal reference guide for musculoskeletal radiologists, basic research scientists, orthopedic surgeons and biomedical engineers etc.

Readership: Basic scientists from cartilage biology, imaging and tissue engineering; musculoskeletal radiologists; orthopaedic surgeons; biomedical engineers; rheumatologists.

Atlas of Head and Neck Imaging: The Extracranial Head and Neck


By (author): Suresh Kumar Mukherji, Vincent Chong

Designed for easy use at the PACS station of viewbox, here is your right-hand tool and pictorial guide for locating, identifying, and accurately diagnosing lesions of the extracranial head and neck. This beautifully produced atlas employs the spaces concept of analysis, which helps radiologists directly visualize complex head and neck anatomy and pathology.

With hundreds of high quality illustrations, this book makes the identification and localization of complex neck masses relatively simple. This book provides CT and MR examples for more than 200 different diseases of the suprahyoid and infrahyoid neck, as well as clear and concise information on the epidemiology, clinical findings, pathology, and treatment guidelines for each disease.

Each space within the head and neck has its own separate section, with examples of the common pathology that arises in this area. A standard format consisting of Epidemiology, Clinical Presentation, Pathology, Treatment, and Imaging Findings, allows quick and efficient access to well-structured subjects. This uniform organization streamlines research for radiologists at any level of training.

Although well over 200 pathologies are included within this remarkable text, Atlas of Head and Neck Imaging focuses primarily on the suprahyoid and infrahyoid neck, providing exceptionally detailed information on the most challenging aspects of this field.

Radiologists and radiation oncologists will find this visual text ideal as a quick anatomic reference and diagnostic tool. Radiology residents preparing for board exams and neuroradiology fellows and staff studying for the CAQ exam will also benefit from the wealth of information.

Emergency Cross-sectional Radiology (Cambridge Medicine (Paperback))


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Dr Daniel Y. F. Chung, Dipanjali Mondal, Erskine J. Holmes, Dr Rakesh Misra

Cross-sectional imaging plays an ever-increasing role in the management of the acutely ill patient. There is 24/7 demand for radiologists at all levels of training to interpret complex scans, and alongside this an increased expectation that the requesting physician should be able to recognise important cross-sectional anatomy and pathology in order to expedite patient management. Emergency Cross-Sectional Radiology addresses both these expectations. Part I demystifies cross-sectional imaging techniques. Part II describes a wide range of emergency conditions in an easy-to-read bullet point format. High quality images reinforce the findings, making this an invaluable rapid reference in everyday clinical practice. Emergency Cross-Sectional Radiology is a practical aide-memoire for emergency medicine physicians, surgeons, acute care physicians and radiologists in everyday reporting or emergency on-call environments.
