Jean Jacques Wyndaele, Apichana Kovindha, “Urodynamic Testing After Spinal Cord Injury: A Practical Guide”

2017 | ISBN-10: 3319548999 | 105 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

This book aims to provide a guide for urodynamic investigation in individuals who have suffered spinal cord injuries. It is universally acknowledged that this type of investigation is valuable and most international guidelines consider it mandatory in patients with neurogenic bladder dysfunction.
The book offers an evidence based knowledge of applicability, clinical value, and limitation, and will give the reader strong diagnostic outcomes that will benefit patients suffering from spinal cord injuries. What is presented in this book is based on expert opinions acquired over decades of urodynamic testing that have taken place in different parts of the world.

Pediatric Thoracic Surgery

English | 2013 | ISBN: 8847052017 | 443 pages | PDF | 11.8 MB

The recent widespread application of minimally invasive techniques has had a profound impact on the diagnosis and therapy of thoracic disorders, including in the pediatric age group. This book is intended as a practical guide to the current approaches in pediatric thoracic surgery.
Up-to-date information is provided on the surgical techniques employed for diagnosis and therapy in a wide range of congenital and acquired thoracic pathologies from the prenatal age to adolescence. Among the disorders considered in detail are cystic malformations of the lung, chest wall deformities, diaphragmatic hernias, esophageal anomalies, mediastinal tumors, laryngeal anomalies, and thoracic infections. The authors are distinguished experts in the field from across the world. Pediatric Thoracic Surgery will be of value not only for pediatric thoracic surgeons but also for adult thoracic surgeons, pediatric anesthetists, and pediatric respiratory physicians.

Jeffrey Meyer, “Radiation Therapy for Liver Tumors: Fundamentals and Clinical Practice”

2017 | ISBN-10: 3319545302 | 308 pages | EPUB | 7 MB

The management of liver tumors is a nexus of interactions among multiple medical specialties, including radiation oncology. A multitude of liver-directed therapies are available for patients, ranging from surgery and liver transplantation to intra-arterial therapies, thermal ablation procedures, systemic therapies, and radiation treatments. With the introduction of hypofractionated irradiation, particle therapy, and radioembolization, there is growing interest in the use of radiation as a treatment for liver malignancies.
This book examines basic principles of the management of liver tumors. The evolving roles of x-ray and particle therapies as well as radioembolization in the treatment of liver tumors is the main focus. A theme of multidisciplinary management is also emphasized, as surgical, interventional and systemic therapies are reviewed.
A unique resource that discusses the role of radiation treatment in the context of other liver-directed therapies, Radiation Therapy for Liver Tumors is of broad interest to radiation oncologists, surgeons, hepatologists, medical oncologists, and radiologists.

James C. Carr, Timothy J. Carroll – Magnetic Resonance Angiography: Principles and Applications

Published: 2012-01-17 | ISBN: 1441916857 | PDF | 487 pages | 18 MB

Magnetic Resonance Angiography: Principles and Applications is a comprehensive text covering magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) in current clinical use. The first part of the book focuses on techniques, with chapters on contrast-enhanced MRA, time of flight, phase contrast, time-resolved angiography, and coronary MRA, as well as several chapters devoted to new non-contrast MRA techniques. Additionally, chapters describe in detail specific topics such as high-field MRA, susceptibility-weighted imaging, acceleration strategies such as parallel imaging, vessel wall imaging, targeted contrast agents, and low dose contrast-enhanced MRA. The second part of the book covers clinical applications of MRA, with each chapter describing the MRA techniques and protocols for a particular disease and vascular territory, as well as the pathology and imaging findings relevant to the disease state being discussed.
Magnetic Resonance Angiography: Principles and Applications is designed to bring together into a single textbook all of the MRA techniques in clinical practice today and will be a valuable resource for practicing radiologists and other physicians involved in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases, as well as biomedical physicists, MRI technologists, residents, and fellows.
