The imaging of moving organs such as the heart, in particular, is a real challenge because of its movement. This book presents current and emerging methods developed for the acquisition of images of moving organs in the five main medical imaging modalities: conventional X–rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear imaging and ultrasound. The availability of dynamic image sequences allows for the qualitative and quantitative assessment of an organ s dynamics, which is often linked to pathologies.

Neuropsychopharmacology and Therapeutics

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Pharmacology  Comments Off on Neuropsychopharmacology and Therapeutics
Mar 182019
 

Neuropsychopharmacology is a relatively new subject area in the neurosciences. It is a field of study that describes the effects of drugs from the molecular to the behavioural level and requires integration and synthesis of knowledge from various disciplines including neuroanatomy, physiology, molecular biology, pharmacology and the behavioural sciences. The principal aims of this book are to provide students with a clear understanding of CNS disorders, and an appreciation of how basic and clinical research findings can be translated into therapeutics.

After an introduction to the subject area, the remaining chapters are focused on reviewing the main psychiatric and neurological disorders that are covered in most courses. They are discussed in terms of their clinical symptoms, epidemiology, pathology, aetiology, underlying neurobiological and neurochemical mechanisms, pharmacotherapy, adjunctive non–pharmacological treatments, and clinical outcomes. Each chapter of the book is a stand–alone chapter and is written in a clear, accessible style.

Written by an author with many years teaching and research experience, this textbook will prove invaluable for students of pharmacology, pharmacy and the medical sciences needing a truly integrated introduction to this exciting field.

Paediatric Orthopaedics: A System of Decision-Making, Second Edition

 Orthopedics, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Paediatric Orthopaedics: A System of Decision-Making, Second Edition
Mar 182019
 

Mastering the art and science of paediatric orthopaedics entails the acquisition of theoretical knowledge, the development of surgical dexterity and learning the process of clinical decision-making. Of these three components, clinical decision-making is arguably the most important.

Featuring a practical focus, Paediatric Orthopaedics: A System of Decision-Making provides a guide to managing a wide spectrum of orthopaedic conditions in children. The book provides strategies for determining an optimum management approach to follow in any given situation, thus empowering surgeons to adapt their approach to the needs of individual patients.

The book addresses 73 topics in 9 sections covering the majority of orthopaedic conditions in children. This simplifies both organization and navigation and creates a design that is suitable for reading either in its entirety or for quick reference.Eminent paediatric orthopaedists have pooled their experience and knowledge to provide a logical approach to the evaluation and treatment of both common and some uncommon conditions.

Readers are given insight into decision-making trees where choices are not always made on science alone but governed also by social issues or patient preference. The text has been fully updated and, with the introduction of colour illustrations, is an invaluable tool for all those working in paediatric orthopaedics.

After You Hear It’s Cancer: A Guide to Navigating the Difficult Journey Ahead

 Oncology  Comments Off on After You Hear It’s Cancer: A Guide to Navigating the Difficult Journey Ahead
Mar 182019
 

In 2014, an estimated 1.66 million people will receive a diagnosis of cancer. They will join a pool of 13.7 million Americans already living with a history of cancer. Almost 600,000 Americans will die from cancer. For some, cancer will be only a short divergence. For others, however, it will be a dramatic fork in the road. And for still others, the beginning of the end of the line.

This book guides cancer patients along their journey where no one knows the duration or the destination. Divided into the three parts of being a cancer patient—the diagnosis, initial treatment, and on to survivorship—the book will help the newly diagnosed cancer patient navigate a complex health care system, make astute decisions at difficult junctures, and manage the emotional turbulence that can rock his or her world. Lastly, it shares the story of how the author and his wife, as well as other cancer patients, have confronted their disease.

International Nutrition: Achieving Millennium Goals and Beyond: 78th Nestlé Nutrition Institute Workshop, Muscat

 Nutrition  Comments Off on International Nutrition: Achieving Millennium Goals and Beyond: 78th Nestlé Nutrition Institute Workshop, Muscat
Mar 182019
 

The UN Millennium Development Goals (MDG) in nutrition are at the core of this book, with special attention to young women and their children. The first part is dedicated to the overall analysis of the world nutrition situation as related to achieving the MDG. The chapters cover the global distribution of malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies in young women and infants, and the disease burden related to it. The second part reviews the measures taken to achieve the MDG and the potential contributions of nutrition-specific and disease control interventions (particularly with regard to reducing child and maternal mortality), as well as the possible role of sectors other than health. The last part looks into the future, scrutinizing the causes and consequences of non-communicable disease in both the developing and developed world, as well as reviewing the latest scientific evidence for underlying mechanisms and discussing the implications for public health and policy makers.

Dance/Movement Therapists in Action : A Working Guide to Research Options, Third Edition

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Dance/Movement Therapists in Action : A Working Guide to Research Options, Third Edition
Mar 182019
 

Dance/Movement Therapists in Action fosters awareness of the living body, honors diverse ways of working, and leads toward creative expression and integration. This edited text, written by authors with exemplary credentials, spans and illuminates a breadth of investigative inquiry approaches and models to all students, clinicians, and researchers interested in dance/movement therapy (DMT) research. The text highlights two basic research frameworks—quantitative (objective) and qualitative (interpretative)—including their underlying philo­sophic and theoretical tenets. The authors’ goal has been to create a comprehensible, accessible book that is readable and engaging: one that contains accepted research protocols in conjunction with practical infor­mation written in ‘nontechnical’ terms. Many examples are incorporated throughout the text to clarify and amplify each of the various research options. A spectrum of research alternatives are presented that can inform clinical practice, inspire clinicians and students, and guide further research inquiry. These chapters hold a wealth of information and examples that will be of particular use and interest to clinicians and were conceived and written with practitioners in mind—for example, one featuring the use of movement observation scales for DMT research and clinical practice, and one on using research results to inform clinical practice. A completely new chapter on embodied descriptive and interpretive methods in DMT research also has been added. This volume will afford dance/movement therapists the tools to conduct research related to both clinical practice and academic inquiry.
