Importance of study are exciting and rapidly advancing fields of medical science. Our understanding of General Medicine has increased considerably over the last few decades. Furthermore, there is such an overwhelming body of knowledge that it is generally difficult to discern what is important to know in the General Medicine. We have put together this book in order to assist the readers in the learning process. This book may be useful for medical students, ophthalmology residents, practicing ophthalmologists, nurses, internal medicine and those who would like to practice on sample questions in General Medicine. Our past experiences in International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) exams as well as in MRCS/FRCS examinations reveal that General Medicine are always very difficult for exam candidates. Hence, our attempt to bring together a comprehensive question bank in order to assist those candidates. We have introduced a new format which is putting the answers below the questions therefore the readers can find the answers more easily. Correct answers had been mentioned in bold as well as in detail explanation in order to assist the readers to find a more comprehensive review. We hope that this approach makes the book more user-friendly. First section of the Basic and Clinical Science Course (BCSC) book series by American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) was used as the main reference. As the educational requirements have grown, learning processes have changed. Each year, an increasing number of our colleagues with limited time are required to obtain credential from the board in national and international examinations. We strongly recommend that candidates review this book following their study of the basic and clinical textbooks.

This is the second edition of a succinct, evidence-based source of answers to questions commonly asked by general practitioners about stroke including definitions, epidemiology, causes, clinical features, investigations, management, outcome and secondary prevention. It is divided into sixteen chapters, each with a list of relevant key references for further reading. The first two chapters define what is meant by a stroke and the size of a problem for stroke patients, their carers and the community. Chapters 3-15 address, in turn, the five key questions that should be answered in the diagnosis and management of all stroke patients: 1. Is it a stroke? 2. Where is the stroke lesion? 3. What is the cause of the stroke? 4. What is the prognosis for survival and handicap? 5. What can be done to optimise patient outcome and prevent recurrant stroke? Chapter 16 discusses stroke in special populations. The book concludes with appendices providing information on stroke organisations (including postal and internet addresses) and medical websites.

In the last few years the use of medical imaging has increased exponentially in routine clinical practice. This has been reflected in a rapidly increasing use of medical imaging in clinical trials, through all phases. More recently this has culminated in a number of inter-disciplinary meetings with the various stake holders, including the FDA. Changes in the regulatory process has resulted, when it comes to the submission of data to the FDA, in a therapeutic agent where one or more of the trial end-points is the assessment of a radiological end-point. No longer is it sufficient to have the images read by the local investigator site. The FDA has also identified Medical Imaging as one of the key 6 points in the Critical Path initiative which was launched in 2004. This puts a keen focus on the role of imaging and the need to clearly identify and understand this aspect of clinical trials. As the pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device industry continues to identify ways to improve and speed up product development, medical imaging plays a more significant role. An understanding of the methodology and the metrics is therefore required but difficult to ascertain in one easy to read volume for individuals entering this field. This book will therefore fulfill this void, be it for the pharmaceutical personnel from medical director to monitor, or the Principal Investigator who is having to understand the complexities of the imaging and why it is having to be sent off-site for a 'central read.'
Table 6.2 outlines some key questions that will need to be answered in order to develop the imaging component of a clinical trial and the skills that are required to answer these questions. For illustrative purposes a proposed study ...

In the last 10 years, the use of clinical exercise testing in respiratory medicine has grown significantly and, if used in the appropriate context, it has been demonstrated to provide clinically useful and relevant information. However, as its implementation and interpretation can be complicated, it should be used alongside previous medical evaluation (including medical history, physical examination and other appropriate complementary tests) and should be interpreted with the results of these additional tests in mind. This timely ERS Monograph aims to provide a comprehensive update on the contemporary uses of exercise testing to answer clinically relevant questions in respiratory medicine. The book covers: equipment and measurements; exercise testing in adults and children; cardiac diseases; interstitial lung disease; pulmonary vascular disease; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; pre-surgical testing; and much more.
