Ultrasound in Critical Care

This book focuses on ultrasound in critical care. Over the past 30 years, ultrasound has moved from the exclusive domain of the cardiologist and radiologist, to many other specialist disciplines. The critical care specialties such as anesthesiology, intensive care and emergency medicine have been the leaders in the adoption of clinical ultrasound outside of cardiology and radiology laboratories. Knowledge and practice of ultrasound in critical care is expanding at very rapid pace. This book cover the chapters, which are discussed on point of care ultrasound, basic physics of ultrasound and the Doppler phenomenon, ultrasound for vascular access, airway ultrasound, lung ultrasound, chest ultrasound in acute respiratory distress syndrome, ultrasonography in cardiac evaluation, volume status assessment and predicting volume responsiveness, ultrasound in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, ultrasound-guided therapeutic procedures in intensive care unit, ultrasonography in neurocritical care, focused assessment sonography of trauma, blue, falls, and sesame protocol, and ultrasound of diaphragm. This textbook is invaluable for emergency physicians, general physicians, intensivists, pulmonologists and anesthetists those practicing cardiac critical care, neurocritical care, trauma critical care, trauma emergency departments at all levels. This book will also serve as handbook for those already in practice and for those engaged in teaching of the subject.

Atlas of Sonoanatomy for Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine 1st Edition

Publisher’s Note: Products purchased from Third Party sellers are not guaranteed by the publisher for quality, authenticity, or access to any online entitlements included with the product.

A comprehensive full-color anatomical atlas designed specifically for the anesthesiologist and pain physician

A clear understanding of relevant anatomy is essential for physicians who wish to master ultrasound-guided nerve blocks. Although ultrasound images may help visualize the nerve to be blocked, the images still present a grainy and incomplete picture. Physicians looking to master US-guided nerve blocks are best served by becoming anatomical experts — and this innovative resource is an invaluable learning tool to doing just that.

In addition to 2D and 3D ultrasound images, Atlas of Sonoanatomy for Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine includes high-resolution CTs, MRIs, cadaver anatomy images, and anatomical illustrations to give physicians a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy of the neck, upper and lower extremity, trunk, thorax, thoracic spine, sacral spine, lumbar paravertebral region, and thoracic paravertebral region that are relevant to ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia.

Features

• Bulleted pearls impart how to obtain optimal ultrasound images at each site

• More than 600 full-color photographs and illustrations throughout

• Essential for anesthesiologists and pain physicians, and is also of value to musculoskeletal sonographers, radiologists, and emergency medicine physicians

•Enables you to learn and see, through full-color illustrations, the relevant anatomy for administering successful nerve blocks

• Includes CT and MRI correlations to ultrasound images, plus corresponding anatomical illustrations, cadaver anatomy, and photos of probe placement on the patient.

Although other texts may provide some of the imaging information contained in this unique atlas, this is the first resource to systematically and comprehensively gather all the imaging modalities for side-by-side comparison under one cover.

Breast Cancer: Diagnostic Imaging and Therapeutic Guidance 1st Edition

Breast Cancer: Diagnostic Imaging and Therapeutic Guidance provides a concise, practical, and practice-based source of up-to-date diagnostic and therapeutic information for the general radiologist. In the diagnostic phase of evaluating breast disorders, the overriding consideration in the examination and assessment is to reduce false diagnoses to the absolute minimum-a principle wholly in the interests of the patient. The particular diagnostic pathway chosen will depend on the highly variable individual presentations and the associated findings. A major focus of the book is the comparative value of the various diagnostic imaging modalities. As well as discussing conventional mammography and adjunct modalities such as breast ultrasound and galactography, the text also showcases the superior utility of contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging in providing the highest rate of detection of cancers at any stage. As well as radiological diagnosis, sections written by top specialists cover the interventional procedures for obtaining biopsies and also the surgical and medical therapy of breast carcinoma.

Key Features:

  • Combined authors’ experience of more than 100 years provides this work with great depth and expertise.
  • Richly illustrated with almost 600 images, including full color histology, patient photographs, and hundreds of radiological studies.
  • BI-RADS classification for mammography, breast ultrasound, and breast MRI.
  • Adjunct topics covered include screening and staging; lymph nodes; breast reconstruction; chemotherapy, also with respect to endocrine-active tumors; radiation therapy; tumors of the male breast; logistics in the breast care center; and psychosocial care.

Breast Cancer: Diagnostic Imaging and Therapeutic Guidance is certain to prove an invaluable tool for all general radiologists involved in the evaluation and treatment of patients with breast cancer.

Introduction to Medical Imaging Management 1st Edition

In the past, for the most part, people who moved into management positions in medical imaging were chosen because they were the best technologists. However, the skill set for technologists and supervisors/managers are vastly different. Even an MBA-educated person may not be ready to take on imaging management. As an example, when buying a very expensive piece of imaging equipment, this person would not necessarily know the right questions to ask, such as: What is my guaranteed uptime? Is technologist training included?

Introduction to Medical Imaging Management is a comprehensive reference for medical imaging managers learning through a combination of education and experience. This thorough book provides an in-depth overview of every major facet pertaining to the knowledge and skills necessary to become a department or imaging center supervisor or manager. The text follows a natural progression from transitioning into a management position and dealing with former peers through the most sophisticated skills uniquely applicable to medical imaging management.

Covering all aspects of the profession―operations, human resources, finance, and marketing―this reference is a must-have for any potential, new, or less experienced imaging manager.

Clinically Oriented Pulmonary Imaging (Respiratory Medicine) 2012th Edition

Diagnostic imaging is an essential component in the evaluation of the patient with known or suspected respiratory tract disease.  While chest radiography continues to serve as the primary tool for imaging the chest, advances in computed tomography (CT) have led to a variety of applications such as high-resolution CT (HRCT), advanced 3-D airway imaging, and image-guided procedures.

The aim of this book is to deliver a clinically-oriented approach to pulmonary imaging.  Each chapter of the book will provide an organized approach to the different facets of imaging of specific clinical scenarios, focusing on strengths and weaknesses of available imaging tests.  High quality examples of typical imaging findings of specific conditions will supplement the text.

The target readers include practicing internists, pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, and primary care practitioners. Other readers will include respiratory care therapists and medical students.  The proposed cohort of authors represents experts in the field of thoracic radiology.  These authors have experience in thoracic radiology and medical writing, each will deliver a high-quality chapter meeting the aims and scope of this book while addressing the target audience. Aside from the first three chapters, which are introductory materials, each author will be invited to select a clinician with whom they work closely to serve as a co-author in order to provide a chapter that maintains the clinical orientation of this book.
