Pelvic Floor Ultrasound: Principles, Applications and Case Studies

 Radiology  Comments Off on Pelvic Floor Ultrasound: Principles, Applications and Case Studies
Dec 052019
 

There is increasing interest in using ultrasound for assessment of pelvic floor disorders such as voiding dysfunction , pelvic organ prolapse and faecal incontinence. Ultrasound can also be a useful imaging modality for urodynamics and pelvic floor physiotherapy. Whilst ultrasound equipment is widely available around the world many clinicians may not have access to structured training in the technique of pelvic floor imaging and interpretation of images in the context of pelvic floor dysfunction. This book aims to provide the reader with the knowledge and skills to start utilising ultrasound imaging in assessment of pelvic floor disorders. The authors comprise the three surgical disciplines (urology, colorectal surgery and gynaecology) who commonly manage pelvic floor problems and have subspecialty expertise in pelvic floor imaging. They have conducted workshops in Australia, Asia, UK and USA and are advocates for clinican-performed ultrasound.

Errors in Imaging

 Radiology  Comments Off on Errors in Imaging
Dec 022019
 

This book offers a thorough, clear and practical guide to identifying, preventing and correcting any error or bias that may arise during the interpretation and reporting of medical images. It combines information and insights from the fields of radiology, expertise theory, cognitive psychology, and advanced learning practices with the author’s considerable clinical (radiologic) experience. In addition, the book features an extensive “Teaching Cases Section” that simulates real-world situations, giving readers an opportunity to practice what they have just learned.
The purpose of the book is to provide readers with essential information and strategies, and to point out the deficiencies of the current radiology education system, in order to minimize the occurrence and the clinical impact of errors in imaging by offering the proper education and training for imaging professionals.

It offers a valuable guide for diagnostic radiologists and all other imaging professionals, whether in training or in practice. Though the main emphasis is on computed tomography and magnetic resonance, the general principles are applicable to all conventional imaging modalities.

PET-CT and PET-MRI in Neurology: SWOT Analysis Applied to Hybrid Imaging

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Radiology  Comments Off on PET-CT and PET-MRI in Neurology: SWOT Analysis Applied to Hybrid Imaging
Dec 022019
 

Using SWOT analysis, this book examines in detail the strengths and weaknesses of the hybrid modalities PET-CT and PET-MRI for imaging of the central nervous system, comparing their merits and evaluating their advantages over the stand-alone modalities. The aim is to employ a truly systematic approach in order to define the potential clinical benefit of these modalities and to identify shortcomings, opportunities, and threats. Clinical application of the modalities is explored in a range of conditions, including dementia and related disorders, movement disorders, psychiatric disorders, cerebrovascular disease, infection/inflammation, brain tumors, and pediatric neurologic disorders. In addition, the basics of hybrid imaging are addressed, covering physics, instrumentation, data analysis and quantitation, radiopharmaceuticals, and contrast media. PET-CT and PET-MRI in Neurology, written by experts from Europe and the United States, will be essential reading for imaging specialists and of value for neurologists, psychiatrists, neurosurgeons, and pediatricians.

Quality and Safety in Radiotherapy

 Radiology  Comments Off on Quality and Safety in Radiotherapy
Nov 292019
 

The first text to focus solely on quality and safety in radiotherapy, this work encompasses not only traditional, more technically oriented, quality assurance activities, but also general approaches of quality and safety. It includes contributions from experts both inside and outside the field to present a global view. The task of assuring quality is no longer viewed solely as a technical, equipment-dependent endeavor. Instead, it is now recognized as depending on both the processes and the people delivering the service. Divided into seven broad categories, the text covers:

– Quality Management and Improvement includes discussions about lean thinking, process control, and access to services.

– Patient Safety and Managing Error looks at reactive and prospective error management techniques.

– Methods to Assure and Improve Quality deals broadly with techniques to monitor, assure, and improve quality.

– People and Quality focuses on human factors, changing roles, staffing, and training.

– Quality Assurance in Radiotherapy addresses the general issues of quality assurance with descriptions of the key systems used to plan and treat patients and includes specific recommendations on the types and frequencies of certain tests.

– Quality Control: Equipment and Quality Control: Patient-Specific provides explicit details of quality control relating to equipment and patient-specific issues.

Recently, a transformation of quality and safety in radiotherapy has begun to take place. Among the key drivers of this transformation have been new industrial and systems engineering approaches that have come to the forefront in recent years following revelations of system failures. This book provides an approach to quality that is long needed, one that deals with both human and technical aspects that must be the part of any overall quality improvement program.

Targeted Radionuclide Tumor Therapy: Biological Aspects

 Radiology  Comments Off on Targeted Radionuclide Tumor Therapy: Biological Aspects
Nov 292019
 

The last three decades have provided opportunities to explore the potential of treating malignant diseases with antibodies or other targeting molecules labelled with nuclides. The expanding array of new targeting molecules (recombinant antibodies or peptides) may increase the therapeutic efficacy. The title of this book “Targeted Radionuclide Tumor Therapy – Biological aspects” was selected to reinforce the concept that a major focus was devoted to understanding the biological effects of targeting and radiation. Furthermore, our rapidly expanding knowledge of low dose-rate effects, different types of cell death, autosensitization and the increasingly likely existence of cancer stem cells suggests to us that even more efficient approaches in targeting might be possible in the future. The development of targeted therapy is a true multidisciplinary enterprise involving physician scientists from the fields of nuclear medicine, radiation therapy, diagnostic radiology, surgery, gynaecology, pathology and medical oncology/haematology. It also involves many preclinical scientists working with experimental animal models, immunochemistry, recombinant antibody technologies, radiochemistry, radiation physics and basic cell biology. It is the ambition of the editors to enable deeper insights in the process of improving targeted therapy. We believe that the time now has come when targeted therapy can soon be added to standard oncology treatment regimens.

Radiopharmaceuticals: A Guide to PET/CT and PET/MRI 2nd Edition

 Pharmacology, Radiology  Comments Off on Radiopharmaceuticals: A Guide to PET/CT and PET/MRI 2nd Edition
Nov 282019
 

This book provides a rapid and concise guide to PET (PET/CT and PET/MRI) molecular imaging, concentrating extensive information on PET radiopharmaceuticals in a single volume.
The book reflects the rapid development of several PET tracers over the last decade, as a result of which the “traditional” PET/CT with 18F-FDG, the “cornerstone” of PET imaging, is now only one of several available options, which use different tracers for different diseases. For the same reason, PET imaging is no longer limited to the field of oncology.

Nov 282019
 

Epilepsy is a prevalent and serious neurological disorder. This vital textbook addresses the role of neuroimaging as a unique tool to provide in vivo biomarkers aimed at furthering our understanding of causes and consequences of epilepsy in a day-to-day clinical context. Unique in its approach, this translational book presents a critical appraisal of advanced pre-clinical biomarkers that allows capturing epileptogenesis at molecular, cellular, and neuronal system levels. The book is divided into four sections. Part I includes a series of chapters focused on imaging of early disease stages. Part II discusses lesion detection and network analysis methods. Part III focuses on imaging methods used to predict response to antiepileptic drugs and surgery. Finally, Part IV presents imaging techniques used to evaluate disease consequence.
