Nov 122018
 

Ideal for anyone with an interest in the increasing role of brain imaging in understanding pain perception and pain mechanisms, this unique, full-color resource thoroughly covers technical advances in the field as well as potential new applications. Dozens of worldwide experts first demystify the technological concepts that are crucial for proper understanding and interpretation of neuroimaging findings, then explore new advances in understanding brain mechanisms of pain, in human as well as animal models.

Key Features:

– Covers key topics in the field, including the historical perspective, technology, animal pain neuroimaging, acute pain, neuroplasticity of chronic pain, chronic pain, pain modulation, ethical conflicts, and future directions
– Highlights strengths and weaknesses of specific neuroimaging techniques, and includes divergent views regarding outcomes and implications.
– Provides a short commentary from Dr. Apkarian, covering significant advances and unanswered questions.
– Ensures that both the experienced scientist and the general clinician will find the information they need to understand the current state of the field as well as potential future directions regarding the interaction between the brain and pain.
– Discusses both acute and various chronic pain conditions from a functional/physiological, structural/anatomical perspective, and evaluates the tools with which new therapies should be developed for properly treating and/or preventing pain states.

Medical Physics, Volume 1 : Physical Aspects of Organs and Imaging

 Radiology  Comments Off on Medical Physics, Volume 1 : Physical Aspects of Organs and Imaging
Nov 122018
 

Medical Physics covers the applied branch of physics concerned with the application of concepts and methods of physics to diagnostics and therapeutics of human diseases. The first part, Physical and Physiological Aspects of the Body, covers those body systems that have a strong physical component, such as body mechanics, energy household, action potential, signal transmission in neurons, respiratory and circulatory system as well as visual and sound perception. The second part of this volume, Imaging Modalities without Ionizing Radiation, introduces sonography, endoscopy, and magnetic resonance imaging.

The second volume complements the imaging modalities with the use of ionizing radiation: x-ray radiography, scintigraphy, SPECT, and PET. This first part is followed by chapters on radiation treatment of tumors, in particular x-ray radiotherapy, proton and neutron radiation therapy, and brachytherapy. The last part treats aspects of diagnostics and therapeutics beyond radiology, including laser applications, multifunctional nanoparticles and prosthetics.

The present volume:

– connects the basic principles of physics with the functionality of the body and with physical methods used for diagnostics and therapeutics.
– covers the first part of the entire field, including the physics of the body and imaging methods without the use of ionizing radiation.
– provides an introduction for Bachelor students to the main concepts of Medical Physics during their first semesters guiding them to further specialized and advanced literature.
– contains many questions & answers related to the content of each chapter.

Designed for rapid reading, this book is a condensed, targeted, high-yield review for the American Board of Internal Medicine certification and recertification exams. Content is derived primarily from interviewing hundreds of physicians who have recently taken their exams, and from Dr. Peikari’s successful “Own the Boards” course for candidates. By covering questions that candidates often miss—such as probability estimation and triple acid-base disorders—the book will boost your score enough to pass the exam with ease. Selected “homework” problems and practice mini-tests with answers are included. A companion Website provides 90 images similar to those on the exam from disciplines such as dermatology, ophthalmology, hematology, rheumatology, and cardiology.
