The book provides a detailed, up-to-date account of the basics, the technology, and the clinical use of ion beams for radiation therapy. Theoretical background, technical components, and patient treatment schemes are delineated by the leading experts that helped to develop this field from a research niche to its current highly sophisticated and powerful clinical treatment level used to the benefit of cancer patients worldwide.
Rather than being a side-by-side collection of articles, this book consists of related chapters. It is a common achievement by 76 experts from around the world. Their expertise reflects the diversity of the field with radiation therapy, medical and accelerator physics, radiobiology, computer science, engineering, and health economics. The book addresses a similarly broad audience ranging from professionals that need to know more about this novel treatment modality or consider to enter the field of ion beam therapy as a researcher. However, it is also written for the interested public and for patients who might want to learn about this treatment option.

The main purpose of this symposium is to stimulate the application of physics to medicine, both in practice and research. Recognized specialists, researchers, health professionals and students in this area present their results and/or the state-of-the-art techniques related to their current topics of interest in plenary talks and in oral and poster sessions. Topics include: biomagnetism, bioimpedance, digital mammography, tomography, MRI, optics in medicine, radiation therapy, dosimetry, conformal radiography, thermoluminescence, biomaterial characterization, image processing and instrumentation.

Seeing is believing with the Atlas of Normal Roentgen Variants That May Simulate Disease, edited by the late Theodore Keats and Mark W. Anderson. Now streamlined into a more concise, portable print format, with a wealth of additional content online, this medical reference book's thousands of images capture the roentgenographic presentation of a full range of normal variants and pseudo-lesions that may resemble pathologic conditions, helping you avoid false positives. You'd be hard pressed to find a comparable image collection in any one place online.



  • Make the correct diagnosis with hundreds of MR and CT correlations.
  • Recognize the entire spectrum of normal variants with over 6,000 images, the largest collection available on this topic.

A careful review of the literature covering various aspects of applications of lasers in science and technology reveals that lasers are being applied very widely throughout the entire gamut of physical medicine. After surveying the current developments taking place in the field of medical applications of lasers, it was considered appropriate to bring together these efforts of international research scientists and experts into one volume. It is with this aim that the editors have prepared this volume which brings current research and recent developments to the attention of a wide spectrum of readership associated with hospitals, medical institutions and universities world wide, including also the medical instrument industry. Both teachers and students in the medical faculties will especially find this compendium quite useful. This book is comprised of eleven chapters. All of the important medical applications of lasers are featured. The editors have made every effort that individual chapters are self-contained and written by experts. Emphasis has been placed on straight and simple presentation of the subject matter so that even the new entrants into the field will find the book of value.

Atlas of Fetal Echocardiography has attempted to explain the concepts of fetal cardiac imaging in a simplified manner. The book is amply illustrated starting from basic embryology to the diagnosis of structural defects. The basics of Doppler has also been covered. The layout of the book has been well designed for easy reading. I hope the authors will explore this area in greater depths in the years to come and further simplify this complex subject. Ultrasonography and Echocardiography have become the two most common tools for the obstetricians in their day-to-day practice. Their use was previously limited to just biometry and routine detection of anomalies. Nowadays, lots of research and development has been going on in this particular field. With the advent of color Doppler high resolution machine STIC and Continuous Wave Doppler, it has become very easy to scan fetal heart and to detect anomalies. In the routine ultrasonography the sonographer aims at detecting something which is not normal in fetal heart. On the other hand, fetal echocardiography, makes us PASSS in our efforts (Position, Axis, Size, Symmetry and Squeeze). Advancements in technology as well as increased capability of sonographer and sonologist has expanded the use of USG as a diagnostic tool for evaluation of fetal anatomy and fetal heart. In this atlas, we have tried to explain the basic use of these new modalities and we are sure that it would be extremely useful to the beginners entering in this field of diagnostic procedures as well as to those more experienced obstetricians by providing them something new.

Dr. Eisenberg's best seller is now in its Fifth Edition—with brand-new material on PET and PET/CT imaging and expanded coverage of MRI and CT. Featuring over 3,700 illustrations, this atlas guides readers through the interpretation of abnormalities on radiographs. The emphasis on pattern recognition reflects radiologists' day-to-day needs...and is invaluable for board preparation. Organized by anatomic area, the book outlines and illustrates typical radiologic findings for every disease in every organ system. Tables on the left-hand pages outline conditions and characteristic imaging findings...and offer comments to guide diagnosis. Images on the right-hand pages illustrate the major findings noted in the tables. A new companion Website allows readers to assess and further sharpen their diagnostic skills.

The Radiologic Technology Clinical Manual is designed to guide students through all aspects of clinical training in the area of radiological sciences. This practical workbook contains student self-evaluation forms, course outlines, instructional objectives, and all the procedures and work assignments necessary for training students in the clinical side of radiologic technology. It can be used as a supplement to any radiologic sciences program.
When used as part of an occupational training course in radiologic technology, the Radiologic Technology Clinical Manual will help students qualify for examination by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). The book contains valuable record keeping materials for clinical experience hours, background on the profession as a whole, and evaluation forms for quarterly periods of clinical training. Time sheets, attendance forms, and clinical log forms are also included.
