Advanced MR Neuroimaging: From Theory to Clinical Practice

Advanced MR Neuroimaging: From Theory to Clinical Practice 1st Edition

Over the last decade, some of the greatest achievements in the field of neuroimaging have been related to remarkable advances in magnetic resonance techniques, including diffusion, perfusion, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and functional MRI. Such techniques have provided valuable insights into tissue microstructure, microvasculature, metabolism and brain connectivity.

 

Previously available mostly in research environments, these techniques are now becoming part of everyday clinical practice in a plethora of clinical MR systems. Nevertheless, despite growing interest and wider acceptance, there remains a lack of a comprehensive body of knowledge on the subject, exploring the intrinsic complexity and physical difficulty of the techniques.

 

This book focuses on the basic principles and theories of diffusion, perfusion, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and functional MRI. It also explores their clinical applications and places emphasis on the associated artifacts and pitfalls with a comprehensive and didactic approach.

 

This book aims to bridge the gap between research applications and clinical practice. It will serve as an educational manual for neuroimaging researchers and radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and physicists with an interest in advanced MR techniques. It will also be a useful reference text for experienced clinical scientists who wish to optimize their multi-parametric imaging approach.

Clinical Cases in Endodontics

Clinical Cases in Endodontics 1st Edition

A problem-based text that presents a wide range of real cases in endodontics

Clinical Cases in Endodontics presents actual clinical cases, accompanied by academic commentary, that question and educate the reader about essential topics in endodontic therapy. It begins with sets of cases illustrating the most common diagnoses and the steps involved in preparing a treatment plan. Subsequent chapters continue in this style, presenting exemplary cases as the basis of discussing various treatment options, including nonsurgical root canal treatment, re-treatment, periapical surgery, internal and external resorption, emergencies and trauma, and treating incompletely developed apices.  The progression from common to increasingly challenging clinical cases enables readers to build their skills, aiding the ability to think critically and independently.

The Clinical Cases series is designed to recognize the centrality of clinical cases to the profession by providing actual cases with an academic backbone. Clinical Cases in Endodontics applies both theory and practice to real-life cases in a clinically relevant format. This unique approach supports the trend in case-based and problem-based learning, thoroughly covering the full range of endodontic treatment.

  • Unique case-based format supports problem-based learning
  • Promotes independent learning through self-assessment and critical thinking
  • Covers all essential topics within endodontics
  • Presents numerous illustrations and photographs throughout to depict the concepts described

Clinical Cases in Endodontics is an ideal resource for students mastering endodontic treatment, residents preparing for board examinations, and clinicians wanting to learn the most recent evidence-based treatment protocols.

Fast Facts: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Fast Facts: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease 3rd Edition

Although there is no cure for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), encouraging smoking cessation and a combination of pharmacological and non-pharmacological management may prevent deterioration of the condition, improve lung function and thus symptoms, and improve health status and functional ability of patients. These are attainable goals that will ultimately improve the quality of life for patients and may also decrease the healthcare costs associated with this disease. This fully updated third edition of Fast Facts: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease offers a concise and expert review of: * current guidelines * the disease process, its causes and progression * diagnostic techniques, including lung function tests and imaging * differential diagnoses * the main clinical features, systemic effects and comorbidities * current treatments to reduce symptoms and improve lung function in stable disease * the prevention and management of acute exacerbations * the latest clinical trial results, supporting aggressive therapy to reduce lung function decline * risk factor reduction, primarily through smoking cessation * future diagnostic and therapeutic developments. Intended as a practical and accessible resource for all general practitioners, practice nurses, specialist nurses, junior hospital doctors, paramedics, medical students and other allied healthcare professionals, this handbook will provide a 'breath of fresh air' to the field of COPD.

Health Promotion in Disease Outbreaks and Health Emergencies

Health Promotion in Disease Outbreaks and Health Emergencies 1st Edition

The book is exceptionally timely and will be of interest to many professionals, students and academics. I am not aware of any other book that covers this important topic. Glenn Laverack brings credibility and kudos having direct experience of health emergencies and seen as a leading academic thinker in health promotion.

 

Dr James Woodall, Reader in Health Promotion, Leeds Beckett University

 

Using specific examples to illustrate broader concepts, this text provides a solid introduction to health promotion in infectious disease outbreaks.

Ella Watson-Stryker, Health Promotion Manager, Médecins Sans Frontières

 

This book is timely given the current humanitarian and development scenarios in which health promoters and development communicators must work. There is a dire need for reference materials for practitioners which expand upon theoretical/scientific concepts and principles and provide practical, straightforward guidance to professionals working in the field. The increasing amount of public health emergencies, e.g. SARS, Ebola, Zika etc. require professionals to increase their preparedness to respond in outbreak or disaster situations and this book becomes a useful tool for needed action.

Dr Erma Manoncourt, Vice-President of Membership and Co-Chair Global Working Group on the Social Determinants of Health, IUHPE, Paris, France.

 

This is the first ever practical guide to the valuable role that health promotion can play in disease outbreaks and health emergencies. Over the past 20 years the number of disease outbreaks has increased alongside a significant role played out by international agencies involved in emergency responses.

The book comprehensively covers the role that health promoters have in this new and exciting field of international work including data collection, communication, community capacity building and engagement and rumour management.

  • Part 1 provides a detailed overview of the role of health promotion in disease outbreaks and health emergencies.
  • Part 2 directly addresses the role of health promotion in two distinct types of disease outbreaks: person to person and vector borne disease transmission.
  • Part 3 covers the role of health promotion in specialist areas of work in disease outbreaks and health emergencies.

Health Promotion in Disease Outbreaks and Health Emergencies is essential reading for health promotion and public health students worldwide, as well as for UN agencies and international NGOs working in this emerging field.
