Handbook for Clinical Trials of Imaging and Image-Guided Interventions


Features: Wiley-Blackwell
By (author): Nancy A. Obuchowski, G. Scott Gazelle

Handbook for Clinical Trials of Imaging and Image-Guided Interventions is the first single-source, multi-disciplinary reference, based on the didactic sessions presented at the annual ‘Clinical Trials Methodology Workshop’ for radiologists, radiation oncologists and imaging scientists (sponsored by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA)). It focuses on educating radiologists, radiation oncologists and those involved in imaging research with how to design and conduct clinical trials to evaluate imaging technology and imaging biomarkers.

The internationally renowned contributors take a broad approach, starting with principles of technology assessment, and then move into specific topics covering the clinical trials of therapy and clinical research in imaging guided interventions including radiotherapy. They discuss the use of imaging as a predictor of therapeutic response, screening trial design, and the practicalities of how to run an efficient clinical trial and good working practices. Later chapters provide a comprehensive array of quantitative methods including: an introduction to statistical considerations in study design, biostatistical analysis methods and their role in clinical imaging research, methods for quantitative imaging biomarker studies, and an introduction to cost effectiveness analysis.

Handbook for Clinical Trials of Imaging and Image-Guided Interventions will educate and prepare radiologists at all levels and in all capacities in planning and conducting clinical imaging trials.

Super-Resolution Imaging in Biomedicine (Series in Cellular and Clinical Imaging)


This book encompasses the full breadth of the super-resolution imaging field, representing modern techniques that exceed the traditional diffraction limit, thereby opening up new applications in biomedicine. It shows readers how to use the new tools to increase resolution in sub-nanometer-scale images of living cells and tissue, which leads to new information about molecules, pathways and dynamics. The book highlights the advantages and disadvantages of the techniques, and gives state-of-the-art examples of applications using microscopes currently available on the market. It covers key techniques such as stimulated emission depletion (STED), structured illumination microscopy (SSIM), photoactivated localization microscopy (PALM), and stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy (STORM). It will be a useful reference for biomedical researchers who want to work with super-resolution imaging, learn the proper technique for their application, and simultaneously obtain a solid footing in other techniques.

This unique book fills a void in radiology interpretation texts by encompassing the foundational tools and concepts of the full range of medical imaging, including radiology, the basics of interpretation of plain radiographs, comparison with other testing modalities, the rationale for selecting the first diagnostic step, and exploration and interpretation of chest, abdomen, extremity, and spinal radiographs. A concise, easy-to-use reference, it includes written descriptions enhanced with figures, tables, and actual patient films to demonstrate concepts, and discusses–in easily accessible language–differences in testing modalities. The text also features a step-by-step guide to the interpretation of radiographs.

This resource describes and compares available diagnostic modalities, including plain radiograph, CT scan, nuclear imaging, MRI, and ultrasound. It discusses pediatric considerations and includes separate chapters for the chest, abdomen, upper and lower extremities, and the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine. The book will be an asset to nurse practitioners and physician assistants working in all emergency, urgent, intensive, and primary care settings. It will also benefit medical students and graduate students in acute care, family, adult/gerontology, and emergency nurse practitioner programs, as well as emergency/trauma clinical nurse specialists, and hospitalists and intensivist nurse practitioners.

Key Features:

  • Integrates the basics of radiology, CT scans, nuclear imaging, MRIs, and ultrasound, their characteristics and differences among testing modalities, and basic step-by-step interpretation skills
  • Relevant to a wide range of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other mid-level providers in multiple settings
  • Includes a step-by-step guide to the interpretation of the radiographs
  • Delivers an easy-to-understand approach to selecting diagnostic imaging tests

Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Want to learn how to use EUS in the treatment of pancreatic cysts?

Need a refresher on how to perform EUS fine needle aspiration?

This is the book for you!

There have been dramatic changes since endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) was first introduced 30 years ago. Advances in technology have meant that as well as being used in the diagnosis of gastrointestinal disorders, EUS is now an accepted therapeutic modality. This second edition covers these exciting changes with new chapters on the emerging field of therapeutic EUS.

The book provides a technical how-to approach to learning this advanced endoscopic procedure. The authors guide you, step-by-step, through the fundamentals of EUS with instructions on:

  • the instruments involved
  • sedation procedures
  • how EUS should be performed

Each chapter discusses a specific aspect of EUS as it relates to a particular gastrointestinal disorder or organ system. Drawing on the vast experience of the authors, this definitive volume contains clear and practical guidance on the state of the art in EUS practice today.
