Imaging Infections: From Bench to Bedside

This books brings together multi-disciplinary expertise to provide comprehensive information about molecular imaging of infectious diseases. Also described are the development of new imaging technologies for infectious disease and their translation to the clinic.

The overall goal of Imaging Infections: From Bench to Bedside is to spur interest and innovation in this emerging field. We anticipate that these technologies will not only allow unique insights into understanding pathogenesis of infections but also expedite bench-to-bedside translation of new therapeutics. While molecular imaging is already in common use in the clinic, this book demonstrates how it could also become a valuable tool for clinical studies, patient care, public health, and for enabling precision medicine for infectious diseases.

Crohn’s Disease: Radiological Features and Clinical-Surgical Correlations

?This book describes and illustrates the radiological findings that are characteristic of Crohn’s disease and correlates these appearances with clinical and surgical findings in order to assist the reader in implementing an appropriate diagnostic approach in this complex disease, which often differs from patient to patient. All of the modern imaging modalities and techniques are covered, including ultrasound, multidetector row computed tomography (MDCT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and combinations of MDCT and MRI with enteroclysis and enterography. The current value of X-ray and the role of endoscopy are also examined. Care is taken to cover specific patient groups, including pediatric patients, those with perianal disease or anal fistulas, and patients who have undergone surgery. In addition to surgical approaches, including minimally invasive options, other new therapies are discussed.  The book will be invaluable for diagnostic radiologists, gastroenterologists, and surgeons.

Radiation Risk Estimation: Based on Measurement Error Models (de Gruyter Series in Mathematics and Life Sciences)

By (author): Sergii Masiuk, Alexander Kukush, Sergiy Shklyar, Mykola Chepurny, Illya Likhtarov

This monograph discusses statistics and risk estimates applied to radiation damage under the presence of measurement errors. The first part covers nonlinear measurement error models, with a particular emphasis on efficiency of regression parameter estimators. In the second part, risk estimation in models with measurement errors is considered. Efficiency of the methods presented is verified using data from radio-epidemiological studies.

Measurement error models
Linear models with classical error
Polynomial regression with known variance of classical error
Nonlinear and generalized linear models

Part II Radiation risk estimation under uncertainty in exposure doses
Overview of risk models realized in program package EPICURE
Estimation of radiation risk under classical or Berkson multiplicative error in exposure doses
Radiation risk estimation for persons exposed by radioiodine as a result of the Chornobyl accident
Elements of estimating equations theory
