Quantitative MRI of the Brain: Principles of Physical Measurement, Second edition (Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering) 2nd Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Radiology  Comments Off on Quantitative MRI of the Brain: Principles of Physical Measurement, Second edition (Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering) 2nd Edition
Oct 272021
 

Building on the success of the first edition of this book, the winner of the 2004 British Medical Association Radiology Medical Book Competition, Quantitative MRI of the Brain: Principles of Physical Measurement gives a unique view on how to use an MRI machine in a new way. Used as a scientific instrument it can make measurements of a myriad of physical and biological quantities in the human brain and body. For each small tissue voxel, non-invasive information monitors how tissue changes with disease and responds to treatment.

The book opens with a detailed exposition of the principles of good practice in quantification, including fundamental concepts, quality assurance, MR data collection and analysis and improved study statistical power through minimised instrumental variation. There follow chapters on 14 specific groups of quantities: proton density, T1, T2, T2*, diffusion, advanced diffusion, magnetisation transfer, CEST, 1H and multi-nuclear spectroscopy, DCE-MRI, quantitative fMRI, arterial spin-labelling and image analysis, and finally a chapter on the future of quantification. The physical principles behind each quantity are stated, followed by its biological significance. Practical techniques for measurement are given, along with pitfalls and examples of clinical applications.

This second edition of this indispensable ‘how to’ manual of quantitative MR shows the MRI physicist and research clinician how to implement these techniques on an MRI scanner to understand more about the biological processes in the patient and physiological changes in healthy controls. Although focussed on the brain, most techniques are applicable to characterising tissue in the whole body.

This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to use the gamut of modern quantitative MRI methods to measure the effects of disease, its progression, and its response to treatment.

Features:

  • The first edition was awarded the book prize for Radiology by the British Medical Association in 2004
  • Written by an authority in the field: Professor Tofts has an international reputation for quantification in MRI
  • Gives specific ‘how to’ information for implementation of MRI measurement sequence techniques

Neuromodulation for Facial Pain (Progress in Neurological Surgery Book 35) 1st Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neuromodulation for Facial Pain (Progress in Neurological Surgery Book 35) 1st Edition
Oct 232021
 

Neuropathic pain involving the face can be very severe and disabling; often, it is hard to control with conventional means and requires use of unconventional interventions on various parts of the trigeminal nociceptive pathways. For the last 60 years, neuromodulation has been used specifically for the treatment of intractable pain in different parts of the human body, including the face and head region. Despite such a long history and existence of many neuromodulation targets, there has not been a dedicated book that would summarize the entire spectrum of neuromodulation approaches that have been – and still are – used for treatment of facial pain. This book begins with dedicated chapters on classification of facial pain and anatomy of facial pain pathways and then dives into specific applications of neuromodulation starting from the periphery all the way to cerebral centers of pain processing, covering both invasive and non-invasive approaches. Written by experts from all over the word, the book offers an up-to-date comprehensive summary of neuromodulation techniques and modalities, providing the readers with a practical guide on clinical details of patient selection, modulation parameters, procedural details, and expected outcomes that may be used in daily clinical practice dealing with most difficult facial pain conditions.

Neurological Differential Diagnosis: A Prioritized Approach 1st Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Neurological Differential Diagnosis: A Prioritized Approach 1st Edition
Oct 212021
 

Neurology is primarily characterized by a variety of diseases which seem very similar and are therefore difficult to distinguish between. Skill at differential diagnosis is therefore absolutely paramount.

Neurological Differential Diagnosis is a streamlined handbook of prioritized differential diagnosis, to be used both in clinical practice and for exam review.

By presenting differential diagnosis in order of frequency and importance, this book provides a practical handbook for clinicians in training, as well as a potential resource for quick board review. Whilst the book covers the most important syndromes and disease entities, readers are referred to other texts for more exhaustive differentials. By limiting differentials in this way – to the most likely and most serious diagnoses – the reader can more easily recall relevant disease processes when faced with a particular clinical situation, whether it be a patient in the emergency room or a difficult question on the board examination.

The book specifically targets neurology residents and fellows, with overlap to neurosurgery and psychiatry. Internal medicine physicians with an interest in neurological problems and medical students looking for an edge in clinical neuroscience would also benefit from this text.

The content is primarily mid-level material, in a pedagogic format.

In order to organize the students’ thought processes concise tables and line drawing templates are included. The book is organized into broad chapters by type of disorder and some overlap occurs between particular chapters.

Concise Neurology 1st Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Concise Neurology 1st Edition
Oct 212021
 

Concise Neurology presents neurology content in a logical sequence within each of ten chapters. Virtually every topic of interest to clinicians is covered in one or two pages to facilitate efficient review of the core concepts in diagnosis and treatment for each syndrome or disease. The author has maintained a thematic unity across related pages, which allows for random reading to be almost as fruitful as sequential reading. For example, a reader who opens the “anticoagulation” page will find a capsulized review of the heparin, warfarin, and thrombolysis stroke trials and the evidence supporting the current therapeutic guidelines. Flipping through neighboring pages will rapidly refresh the position of the clinically relevant thrombophilias in relation to the coagulation pathway, indications for lifelong anticoagulation, causes of hyperhomocysteinemia, and the bare bones of the most important etiologies of strokes in the young.

The book presents higher level content than the student “In a Page” text, covers each topic in more depth, and addresses issues related to pathophysiology and neuropathology of diseases. Concise Neurology will be a welcome resource for busy practitioners, residents, fellows, medical students, and allied health care professionals in the neurosciences who require a rapid, readable overview of a complex subject.

Advances and Challenges in Stroke (Neuroscience Research Progress) 1st Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Advances and Challenges in Stroke (Neuroscience Research Progress) 1st Edition
Oct 192021
 

Stroke, a brusque interruption of blood supply in an area of the brain, has a sudden and frequently devastating impact on both patients and their families. Although stroke is most common in older people, it can occur in individuals of any age, including young adults and children. Fortunately, the prospects for preventing and treating stroke are far better than they were just a few decades ago. However, a lot of challenges await physicians and researchers in terms of prevention, pathogenesis and treatment. Stroke remains a high priority medical condition for our society; globally, about 15 million people suffer of cerebrovascular diseases, with stroke being the most frequent life-threatening neurological disease and the third cause of death and disability. The authors of Advances and Challenges in Stroke hope to guide readers through the complexity of stroke pathogenesis, from the molecular basis to the most recent advances in terms of pathophysiological cascade leading to cell death. Through the expert opinion of Italian and European researchers, multiple aspects will be explored, including the etiology of juvenile or cryptogenic stroke, correlations between the heart and brain, state-of-the-art telemedicine in reducing door to needle and decision-making time, and the contribution of modern neuroimaging techniques and surgical/endovascular treatment in the hyperacute stroke phase.
