Handbook of Diagnostic Endocrinology – 3rd Edition (October 2020 Release)

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Handbook of Diagnostic Endocrinology – 3rd Edition (October 2020 Release)
Jul 182021
 

The clinical laboratory plays a critical role in the diagnosis and management of endocrine and related metabolic disorders, which are leading causes of morbidity and mortality in children and adults. The Handbook of Diagnostic Endocrinology, Third Edition, provides a ready reference for the evaluation, diagnosis, and monitoring of such disorders. This revision incorporates translational medicine, connecting what clinicians need to know with those in research providing a clinical context to which they can relate their molecular findings. This book solves the needs of clinicians and researchers by bringing together in one book endocrinology at the molecular and clinical levels. As the intricacies of intracellular signaling have become better understood, states of hormone resistance are now increasingly recognized. The most common endocrinopathy in westernized countries, the metabolic syndrome, results, to a large extent, from insulin resistance. The complexity of the circulating forms of various hormones are acknowledged in this revision.

 Radiology  Comments Off on Women’s Imaging: MRI with Multimodality Correlation (Current Clinical Imaging) 1st Edition
Jul 162021
 

The first complete reference dedicated to the full spectrum of women’s imaging topics

“Women’s imaging” refers to the use of imaging modalities (X-ray, ultrasound, CT scan, and MRI) available for aiding in the diagnosis and care of such female-centric diseases as cancer of the breast, uterus, and ovaries. Currently, there is no single reference source that provides adequate discussions of MRI and its important role in the diagnosis of patients with women’s health issues.

Thoroughly illustrated with the highest-quality radiographic images available, Women’s Imaging: MRI with Multimodality Correlation provides a concise overview of the topic and emphasizes practical image interpretation. It makes clear use of tables and diagrams, and offers careful examination of differential diagnosis with special notes on key learning points. Placing great emphasis on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), while providing correlations to other important imaging modalities, the comprehensive book features the latest guidelines on imaging screening and includes in-depth chapter coverage of:

  • Pelvis MRI: Introduction and Technique
  • Imaging the Vagina and Urethra
  • Pelvic Floor Imaging
  • Imaging the Uterus
  • Imaging the Adnexa
  • Imaging Maternal Conditions in Pregnancy
  • Fetal Imaging
  • Breast MRI: Introduction and Technique
  • ACR Breast MRI Lexicon and Interpretation
  • Preoperative Breast Cancer Evaluation and Advanced Breast Cancer Imaging
  • Postsurgical Breast and Implant Imaging
  • MR-Guided Breast Interventions

Providing up-to-date information on many of the health issues that affect women across the globe, Women’s Imaging will appeal  to all general radiologists – especially those specializing in body imaging, breast imaging, and women’s imaging – as well as gynaecologists and obstetricians, breast surgeons, oncologists, radiation oncologists, and MRI technologists.

The Cambridge Companion to Hume (Cambridge Companions to Philosophy)

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on The Cambridge Companion to Hume (Cambridge Companions to Philosophy)
Jul 162021
 

David Hume is, arguably, the most important philosopher ever to have written in English. Although best known for his contributions to epistemology, metaphysics, and the philosophy of religion, Hume also made substantial and influential contributions to psychology and the philosophy of mind, ethics, the philosophy of science, political and economic theory, political and social history, and to a lesser extent, aesthetic and literary theory. All facets of Hume’s output are discussed in this volume, the first genuinely comprehensive overview of his work. The picture that emerges is of a thinker, who, though critical to the point of skepticism, was nonetheless able to build on that skepticism a profoundly important, and still viable, constructive philosophy.

Neonatal Respiratory Disorders (Arnold Publication)

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Neonatal Respiratory Disorders (Arnold Publication)
Jul 162021
 

Lung disease is a major indication for the admittance of the neonate to a specialist intensive care unit, and is a particularly common complication in the pre-term baby where the lungs are in sufficiently developed at birth and easily damaged by early treatments. As a consequence, this is an
area of intensive international research activity. In this comprehensive update of the well-received first edition, leading researchers from all over the world have been invited to contribute in their specialist areas. The book continues to provide detailed coverage of the pathogenesis, clinical and
laboratory features and management of lung disorders in the neonate, with increased emphasis on the underlying immunology and major additions to the sections on respiratory support, chronic lung disease and abnormalities in lung growth and development to reflect the changes that have occurred in
these areas since the previous edition appeared in 1995. Providing an unrivalled up-to-date statement on the problems that are faced in the neonatal intensive care unit on a daily basis, this is an invaluable addition to the bookshelves of neonatologists and other personnel involved in the care of
critically ill babies.

Hankey’s Clinical Neurology – 3rd Edition (2021 Release)

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Hankey’s Clinical Neurology – 3rd Edition (2021 Release)
Jul 162021
 

The rapid expansion of clinical knowledge in the field of neurology warrants a new edition of this highly regarded textbook of neurology. In addition to the anchor chapters on major areas such as headache, stroke, developmental disorders, dementia, epilepsy, acquired metabolic disorders, and others, several new chapters have been added to meet the clinical demand for those in practice. This edition features new chapters on neurotoxicology, neuroimaging, and neurogenetics including basic and more advanced concepts for the practitioner. Finally, as the health care system continues to evolve, a new chapter on population health and systems of care reflects current practice in team care, patient-centric approaches, and value-based care.

*Pithy bullet points and standard prose allow the reader to assimilate concepts and key messages with ease

*Summary tables, neuroimages, photomicrographs, neuroanatomic drawings, gross and microscopic neuropathologic specimen photos, graphics, and summary boxes further enhance the text

*Chapters are crafted in a way to appeal to both the visuospatial and analytic functional centers of the brain, as we stimulate the senses and learn

Hankey’s Clinical Neurology, Third Edition, will be of value to medical students, physicians in training, neurology fellows, neurologist and neurosurgeon practitioners, and advanced practice professionals (e.g., nurse practitioners and physician assistants) who are faced with neurologic practice challenges.

Review

“Overall, the book is well written and that is a tribute to its many contributors-also listed at the front. The text is clear and concise and is aimed at a wide audience from medical students to primary care practitioners, specialist neurology nurses and established specialists wanting a refresh. The text is clearly laid out and coverage is broken up into tradition medical headings. One advantage of the eBook is that headings and titles are hypertext and so simple click with a mouse on a PC or touch on a smart device takes you to that section.” -Dr Harry Brown, Glycosmedia
