Imaging Methodology and Applications in Parkinson's Disease / Marios Politis (Volume Editor)Imaging Methodology and Applications in Parkinson's Disease, Volume 141, provides an up-to-date and comprehensive textbook on the use of imaging modalities across the spectrum of movement disorders and dementias. Over the last decades, advances in neuroimaging tools has played a pivotal role in expanding our understanding of disease etiology and pathophysiology, identifying biomarkers to monitor disease progression, aiding differential diagnosis, and in the identification of novel targets for therapeutic intervention. This book brings together lessons learned from neuroimaging tools in movement disorders, including chapters on Advances in PET Methodology, Advances in MRI Methodology, Advances in SPECT Methodology, Hybrid PET/MRI Methodology, and more.
Interventional Radiology / Bradley B. Pua (Editor); Anne M. Covey (Editor); David C. Madoff (Editor)In 2012, the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) approved Interventional Radiology (IR) as its own specialty. Born out of the field of Diagnostic Radiology, IR requires a more clinical focus on initial consultation and post-procedural management, rather than its previous role of performing image-guided procedures. Interventional Radiology: Fundamentals of Clinical Practice is written with this new focus in mind to help readers incorporate their procedural knowledge into a holistic approach of patient management. Chapters explore topics across a broad spectrum of IR, with a focus on etiology and pathophysiology of disease, followed by discussions on intra-procedural and post-procedural management. Numerous tables and boxes, and over 420 total figures complement chapter content. This comprehensive text is a must-have for IR residents and all practicing interventional radiologists.
Neuroradiology / Juan Small; Daniel Noujaim; Daniel Thomas Ginat; Hillary R. Kelly; Pamela W. SchaeferAcquire a better understanding of disease evolution and treatment response with Neuroradiology Spectrum and Evolution of Disease. The unique format includes carefully chosen clinical images that depict the pathologic evolution of disease from initial presentation across the continuum of progression. Colorful graphics plot characteristic changes, helping you visualize how normal and abnormal variations alter over time. Extensive illustrations and concise descriptions distill complex concepts, making this first-of-its-kind resource an excellent tool for imaging interpretation and clinical problem solving. Presents neurologic disease from a novel imaging perspective, emphasizing evolutionary development and pointing out patterns to recognize. Provides a state-of-the-art understanding of image interpretation based on early, middle, and late imaging characteristics; typical and atypical variants; and pre-treatment, post-treatment, progression, and regression characteristics. Guides you through the progression of disease with chronological indicators, additional clinical images and descriptions, and annotations that highlight atypical findings - for an easy-to-digest, visually memorable presentation.
