Imaging Anatomy of the Human Brain

Imaging Anatomy of the Human Brain

A Comprehensive Atlas Including Adjacent Structures

Neil M. Borden MD
Cristian Stefan MD
Scott E. Forseen MD

The most precise, cutting-edge images of normal cerebral anatomy available today are the centerpiece of this spectacular atlas for clinicians, trainees, and students in the neurologically-based medical and non-medical specialties. Truly an “atlas for the 21st century,” this comprehensive visual reference presents a detailed overview of cerebral anatomy acquired through the use of multiple imaging modalities including advanced techniques that allow visualization of structures not possible with conventional MRI or CT. Beautiful color illustrations using 3-D modeling techniques based upon 3D MR volume data sets further enhances understanding of cerebral anatomy and spatial relationships. The anatomy in these color illustrations mirror the black and white anatomic MR images presented in this atlas.

Written by two neuroradiologists and an anatomist who are also prominent educators, along with more than a dozen contributors, the atlas begins with a brief introduction to the development, organization, and function of the human brain. What follows is more than 1,000 meticulously presented and labelled images acquired with the full complement of standard and advanced modalities currently used to visualize the human brain and adjacent structures—including MRI, CT, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) with tractography, functional MRI, CTA, CTV, MRA, MRV, conventional 2-D catheter angiography, 3-D rotational catheter angiography, MR spectroscopy, and ultrasound of the neonatal brain. The vast array of data that these modes of imaging provide offers a wider window into the brain and allows the reader a unique way to integrate the complex anatomy presented. Ultimately the improved understanding you can acquire using this atlas can enhance clinical understanding and have a positive impact on patient care. Additionally, various anatomic structures can be viewed from modality to modality and from multiple planes.

Brachytherapy, Second Edition

Brachytherapy, Second Edition

Applications and Techniques

Phillip M. Devlin MD, FACR
(Editor)

"This text is a must read for any radiation oncologist, whether one focuses their practice in brachytherapy, utilizes brachytherapy in any of the disease sites, or refers patients out for brachytherapy. It provides valuable information and guidance on the background, rationale, indications and care of the patient undergoing or being considered for brachytherapy."

—Bruce G. Haffty, MD
Professor and Chairman, Department of Radiation Oncology
Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey

The only comprehensive guide to the latest knowledge and techniques in brachytherapy. Since the first edition was published in 2006, Phillip M. Devlins Brachytherapy has been acknowledged as the essential book on the practice. In this updated new edition, all chapters covering cancer sites have been significantly revised. Organized for specialists in several fields, Brachytherapy contains site-specific chapters that discuss how the evolving role of advanced image guidance has demonstrated greater efficacy and less toxicity. Clinical vignettes with images now accompany all site-specific chapters. The chapter on prostate brachytherapy has been expanded to include other indications in the genitourinary system, and there are two entirely new chapters, one chronicling the history of brachytherapy and the other detailing the emergence of skin brachytherapy.

In the new edition:

  • Over 300 images accompany the chapter text and clinical vignettes
  • Essential tables and spreadsheets enhance the chapter on running a brachytherapy practice
  • Includes access to the fully-searchable downloadable ebook

Neoplastic Gastrointestinal Pathology

Neoplastic Gastrointestinal Pathology

An Illustrated Guide

Laura Lamps MD
Andrew Bellizzi MD
Rhonda Yantiss MD
Scott R. Owens MD
Wendy L. Frankel MD

Approximately 20 million gastrointestinal tract biopsies are performed each year in the United States. While many of these are straightforward, some are histologically subtle or involve a complex differential diagnosis. This concise visual guide to the full range of neoplastic gastrointestinal specimens provides the practicing pathologist or trainee with a clear analysis and diagnosis of both common and potentially misleading variants of disease. The authors cover the full tubular GI tract with over 600 high-quality images and a concise description of the key features of each entity: definitions and terminology, gross and morphologic features, differential diagnoses, useful ancillary tests, staging and grading parameters, and special clinical considerations. Images depict differential diagnosis features, frequently seen variants that can potentially lead to misclassification or misdiagnosis, and correlated molecular and immunologic techniques.

Introduction to Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

Introduction to Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

Getting Started

Jeffrey A. Strakowski MD

This is the first truly foundational, introductory text designed to help novice practitioners master the fundamentals of musculoskeletal ultrasound. For the new practitioner who has yet to hold a transducer, Dr. Strakowski makes beginning easy and presents detailed step-by-step instructions for operating the equipment, obtaining good images, and successfully interpreting sonograms. Organized for maximum learning value, the book is packed with high-quality color images, tables, and tips to enhance understanding of proper technique and proficiency in musculoskeletal ultrasound.

This “quick start” manual provides a simplified approach to essential physics, terminology, instrumentation and image optimization, proper scanning technique, and ergonomics. It is also designed to instruct in the recognition of the normal sonographic appearance of muscle, nerves, and tendons; other tissue, foreign bodies, masses, and artifacts; and use in interventional procedures. The final chapter offers recommendations for getting started in practice. The book’s clear, concise presentation will help new practitioners, residents, and medical students take the first steps in using ultrasound in the musculoskeletal clinic with confidence and skill.
