This evidence-based book shows how to use ultrasound to identify potential problems and
how best to manage them. Working backwards from the fetal finding or maternal problem,
this practical resource explores potential diagnostic routes and management plans.
Throughout the book, the author uses ‘case in point’ examples to focus on how to extract
the most useful information from a standard ultrasound examination. Dr. Hobbins, who
has spent more than three decades using ultrasound in a perinatal setting, also thoroughly
explores vital issues such as comprehensive examination of the fetal anatomy, the meaning of various abnormal findings, how ultrasound can be used to enhance the management of obstetrical
complications, dealing with discrepant biometry, diabetes and hypertension, advanced maternal age, preterm labor, intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and safety of ultrasound.

Imaging mass spectrometry (MS) techniques are often utilized without an understanding of their underlying principles, making it difficult for scientists to determine when and how they can exploit MS to visualize their biomolecules of interest. Introduction to Spatial Mapping of Biomolecules by Imaging Mass Spectrometry is an essential reference to help scientists determine the status and strategies of biomolecule analysis, describing its many applications for diverse classes of biomolecules.
The book builds a foundation of imaging MS knowledge by introducing ionization sources, sample preparation, visualization guidelines, molecule identification, quantification, data analysis, etc. The second section contains chapters focused on case studies on analyzing a biomolecule class of molecules. Case studies include an introduction/background, and a summary of successful imaging MS studies with illustrative figures and future directions.
Provides the introductory foundations of imaging mass spectrometry for those new to the technique
Organized by topic to facilitate a quick deep dive, allowing researchers to immediately apply the imaging MS techniques to their work
Includes case studies summarizing the imaging MS techniques developed for the class of molecules

125 cases addressing “real-life” clinical problems
Complete with the insights of leading pediatric radiologists, Teaching Atlas of Pediatric Imaging provides 125 cases that address the challenging “real-life” clinical problems that you are likely to encounter. Each chapter presents a different case with a complete patient work-up that includes clinical presentation, diagnosis, differential diagnoses, radiological and clinical findings, treatment summary and suggested readings. With a view to providing the opportunity for self-assessment, the authors omit the diagnosis from the first pages of each case to enable self-testing and review.
Easy-to-access arrangement of cases based on anatomy: head and neck, chest, heart, abdomen, pelvis, and the musculoskeletal system
Coverage of a wide spectrum of diseases, from the very common to more important uncommon entities, including congenital heart disease, bone dysplasias and more
Differential diagnoses for each case, as well as information on etiology, pathology, treatment, and complications
“Pearls” and “Pitfalls” that help you identify important points and avoid errors in image interpretation
Here is a valuable resource for the clinician at every level, from the resident preparing for the radiology board examinations, to the practitioner seeking the Certificate of Added Qualification in Pediatric Radiology, to the general radiologist or pediatrician seeking a practical reference text.

A powerful spectrum of thoracic radiology cases and board-type Q&A review to help you pass your exam!
This second edition of RadCases Thoracic Imaging from Carlos Restrepo and Steven Zangan presents 100 differential diagnoses covering the span of lung and thorax disease states, from common conditions such as pneumonia and ARDS to rare conditions like Mounier-Kuhn syndrome and DIPNECH. This edition includes important variations of prior cases, updated diagnostic and management strategies, and new pathological entities. Cases are strategically designed to simulate pathologies encountered in day-to-day practice, increase knowledge, and provide robust exam preparation. For maximum ease of self-assessment, each case begins with the clinical presentation on the right-hand page; study that and then turn the page for CT and chest radiograph findings, differential diagnoses with the definitive diagnosis, essential facts, pearls and pitfalls, and more.
- New to this edition, a question-and-answer section for each case reinforces key concepts
- Nearly 500 high quality figures with clear annotations and descriptions enhance understanding of underlying pathologies
- Easy-to-read bulleted formatting and concise, point-by-point presentation of the Essential Facts enables learning and retention of high-yield facts and skill-building in thoracic radiologic diagnosis
Thieme’s RadCases means cases selected to simulate what you will see on your exams, rounds, and rotations. RadCases helps you to identify the correct differential diagnosis for each case, including the most critical. The series comprehensively covers the following specialties:
- Breast Imaging · Cardiac Imaging · Emergency Imaging · Gastrointestinal Imaging · Genitourinary Imaging · Head and Neck Imaging · Interventional Radiology · Musculoskeletal Radiology · Neuro Imaging · Nuclear Medicine · Pediatric Imaging · Thoracic Imaging · Ultrasound Imaging
Each RadCases second edition has a code allowing you one year of access to Thieme’s online database of 350 cases: the 100 cases in this book plus 250 cases more.
Master your cases, pass your exams, and diagnose with confidence: RadCases!
