Textbook of Uncommon Cancer (Hardcover)

By (author): Derek Raghavan, Charles Blanke, David H. Johnson, Paul L. Moots, Gregory H. Reaman, Peter G. Rose, Mikkael A. Sekeres

The only text dealing exclusively with rare or infrequently encountered malignancies in adults and children

Now in its Fourth Edition, Textbook of Uncommon Cancer is designed to help clinicians manage the treatment of uncommon cancers, for which, in many instances, there are few established guidelines for care. No longer does each new presentation of an uncommon cancer require extended periods of research. This unique and well-established book provides balanced, authoritative, and now, wherever possible, evidence-based guidance on how to address each malignancy.

This Fourth Edition is thoroughly revised with new material as well as a new focus on evidence-based research and clinical practice throughout. Clinicians will find guidelines for dealing with management issues, gain insight into real-world clinical decision-making, and save themselves hours of painstaking research through the use of this widely acclaimed, comprehensive guide.

Features of this new edition include:

  • A complete revision and update, with five new chapters and extensive revisions of more than 75 percent of the existing chapters
  • Over 100 new full-color illustrations and images
  • Contributions by multidisciplinary teams of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and other specialists, reflecting day-to-day decision-making and clinical practice

Textbook of Uncommon Cancer, Fourth Edition is an essential, self-contained guide for practicing oncologists who treat patients with rare or infrequently encountered malignancies. It is also an important resource for hematologists and other specialists who deal with malignancies in a particular organ system.

Non-Neoplastic Hematopathology and Infections (Hardcover)

By (author): Hernani Cualing, Parul Bhargava, Ramon L. Sandin

Most books on hematopathology are neoplastic in scope and offer little non-neoplastic content. In Non-Neoplastic Hematopathology and Infections, the authors fully describe the hematologic manifestations in tissue and blood of infectious agents, including many rare and exotic diseases found in both Western and Eastern hemispheres, in order to assist pathologists and medical laboratory professionals all over the world in better diagnosing and treating such infections.

Thoroughly illustrated with photographs, tables and text, this book features a wide range of non-neoplastic hematologic disorders, as well as reactive patterns of non-infectious and infectious agents. Comprehensive and state-of-the-art diagnostic materials are described, as are the epidemiology, pathobiology, clinical and pathologic manifestations in blood and lymphatic organs—as well as the approaches to treatment.

In addition, Non-Neoplastic Hematopathology and Infections:

  • Contains detailed information on the pathology and patterns of blood, lymph node, and a number of bone marrow and splenic infections and infectious agent manifestations

  • Thoroughly updates the classic pathology of reactive lymphadenopathies and extends this pattern-based approach to tropical and emergent infections

  • Promotes the multidisciplinary integration of hematopathologists and microbiologists in the analysis and diagnostic work-up of tissue and blood

  • Complements current major treatises on such tropical diseases as Manson's, Ashworth's, and Doerr's and updates the classic tomes of William St. Clair Symmers and current texts on neoplastic hematopathology

Non-Neoplastic Hematopathology and Infections is an important book for any medical professional interested in non-neoplastic hematology, infections and tissue hematopathology, infectious diseases and tropical medicine, and tropical hematopathology.

The aim of the Neurology in Practice series is to provide a clinical 'in the office' or 'at the bedside' guide to effective patient care for neurologists in practice and in training. The tone will be practical, not academic. The working assumption is that readers want to know what (and what not) might or should be done, without over emphasis on the why. That said, it is important to review the crucial basic science necessary for effective diagnosis and management, and to provide reminders in the context of the practical chapters.

The books will not be heavily referenced, in line with a more practical approach. This allows for smoother reading (and also relieves the burden of comprehensive citing from authors). Key evidence (clinical trials, Cochrane or other meta analyses) should be summarized in 'Evidence at a Glance' boxes and key references such as reviews, major papers can be provided in the 'selected bibliography' at the end of each chapter.

Practical guidance will be provided through:

  • the use of algorithms and guidelines where they are appropriate
  • 'Tips and Tricks' boxes – hints on improving outcomes perhaps via practical technique, patient questioning etc
  • 'Caution' warning boxes – hints on avoiding problems, perhaps via contraindications
  • 'Science Revisited' – quick reminder of the basic science principles necessary for understanding

Medical Imaging: Essentials for Physicians (Hardcover)

By (author): Anthony B. Wolbarst, Patrizio Capasso, Andrew R. Wyant

"An excellent primer on medical imaging for all members of the medical profession . . . including non-radiological specialists. It is technically solid and filled with diagrams and clinical images illustrating important points, but it is also easily readable . . . So many outstanding chapters . . . The book uses little mathematics beyond simple algebra [and] presents complex ideas in very understandable terms."
—Melvin E. Clouse, MD, Vice Chairman Emeritus, Department of Radiology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Deaconess Professor of Radiology, Harvard Medical School

A well-known medical physicist and author, an interventional radiologist, and an emergency room physician with no special training in radiology have collaborated to write, in the language familiar to physicians, an introduction to the technology and clinical applications of medical imaging. It is intentionally brief and not overly detailed, intended to help clinicians with very little free time rapidly gain enough command of the critically important imaging tools of their trade to be able to discuss them confidently with medical and technical colleagues; to explain the general ideas accurately to students, nurses, and technologists; and to describe them effectively to concerned patients and loved ones. Chapter coverage includes:

  • Introduction: Dr. Doe's Headaches
  • Sketches of the Standard Imaging Modalities
  • Image Quality and Dose
  • Creating Subject Contrast in the Primary X-Ray Image
  • Twentieth-Century (Analog) Radiography and Fluoroscopy
  • Radiation Dose and Radiogenic Cancer Risk
  • Twenty-First-Century (Digital) Imaging
  • Digital Planar Imaging
  • Computed Tomography
  • Nuclear Medicine (Including SPECT and PET)
  • Diagnostic Ultrasound (Including Doppler)
  • MRI in One Dimension and with No Relaxation
  • Mapping T1 and T2 Proton Spin Relaxation in 3D
  • Evolving and Experimental Modalities

Management of Complications in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a comprehensive reference that covers the minor and major complications which may occur in all facets of oral maxillofacial surgery. Each chapter covers the potential complications encountered during the routine practice of oral and maxillofacial surgery, from the most commonly encountered complications, to those less frequent and more complex with which every competent oral and maxillofacial surgeon should be familiar.

Drs. Miloro and Kolokythas address possible complications in every aspect of OMS, including anesthesia, third molar surgery, implant surgery, maxillofacial trauma, orthognathic surgery, temporomandibular joint surgery, cleft lip and palate surgery, head and neck oncologic surgery, soft and hard tissue reconstruction, free tissue transfer, and cosmetic facial surgery. The contributors to this textbook, recognized experts in their specific topic due to their surgical experience and expertise, focus on the prompt recognition of each complication, and consider preventative measures as well as precise management strategies considering the already compromised clinical circumstances.
