Musculoskeletal Imaging Volume 1 provides a comprehensive review of the subject matter commonly encountered by practicing radiologists and radiology residents in training. This volume includes succinct overviews of trauma, arthritis, and tumor and tumor-like conditions. Part of the Rotations in Radiology series, this book offers a guided approach to imaging diagnosis with examples of all imaging modalities complimented by the basics of interpretation and technique and the nuances necessary to arrive at the best diagnosis. Each pathology is covered with a targeted discussion that reviews the definition, clinical features, anatomy and physiology, imaging techniques, differential diagnosis, clinical issues, key points, and further reading. This organization is ideal for trainees' use during specific rotations, for exam review, or as a quick refresher for the established musculoskeletal imager. It is a must-read for residents and practicing radiologists seeking a foundation for the essential knowledge base in musculoskeletal imaging. Musculoskeletal Imaging Volume 2 reviews metabolic, infectious, and congenital diseases; internal derangement of joints; and arthography, and ultrasound.
Introduction Malignant vascular bone tumors have elicited much controversy and debate. The terms hemangioendothelioma and angiosarcoma historically have been used both synonymously and to indicate different tumors.

This book provides a practically applicable guide to the use of multimodality imaging for managing aortic valve disorders. Details of how to successfully diagnose a range of aortic valve diseases is presented, with detailed information covered on the techniques and relevant criteria for pre-operative screening, surgical and transcatheter planning, intraprocedural imaging and related postoperative follow-up. Multimodality Imaging for Cardiac Valvular Interventions, Volume 1 Aortic Valve: From Diagnosis to Decision-Making enables the reader to develop a thorough understanding and confidence of how to make appropriate clinical decisions when confronted by a range of aortic valve diseases. It is therefore a key resource for practicing cardiac imagers, cardiologists and interventional cardiologists who encounter these patients in their day-to-day clinical practice and trainees in cardiology seeking insight on the appropriate management of these patients.
The only available view of the valve pathology was the intraoperative surgical one. ... and the increase amount of less-operator dependent parameters cardiac and vascular imaging have become pivotal for patientcentred Heart Team (Fig.

Vascular diagnostics traditionally rely on x-ray angiography. This approach remains even today essential in the clinical work-up of patients with vascular pathology. Recently, however, newer imaging modalities have been intro duced to assess vascular disease. Among these the color Doppler flow and magnetic resonance imaging appear the most promising. Due to their noninva sive character both methods are ideally suited for screening as well as serial follow-up of vascular patients. The emergence of color Doppler flow and magnetic resonance vascular imaging coincides with new concepts in vascular medicine. Today, vascular prevention and percutaneous interventions are becoming the leading compo nents in modern vascular care. It is in this new and exciting environment of novel vascular concepts where the demand for reliable noninvasive vascular imaging is becoming a high priority. Color Doppler flow and magnetic reso nance vascular imaging are well on the way to satisfy this demand. This textbook provides the long awaited information on vascular imaging by color Doppler flow and magnetic resonance. The text covers the essentials of vascular anatomy, physiology and noninvasive imaging technology before providing a state-of-the-art review of their current clinical applications. All chapters are written by competent scientists and clinicians in a clear, conscise and yet thorough and exhaustive manner. The coherent and didactic composi tion of the textbook allows the reader an easy access to the elementary as well as the advanced principals and clinical applications of the modern noninvasive vascular imaging.

The first book-length reference to thoroughly describe diagnostic and therapeutic advances in the development of vascular radiology over the last decade The last ten years has seen vascular imaging of the central nervous system (CNS) evolve from fairly crude, invasive procedures to more advanced imaging methods that are safer, faster, and more precise—with computed tomographic (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging methods playing a special role in these advances. Vascular Imaging of the Central Nervous System is the first full-length reference text that shows radiologists—especially neuroradiologists—how to optimize the use of the many techniques available in order to increase the sensitivity and specificity of vascular imaging, thereby improving the diagnosis and treatment of individual patients. Each chapter is formatted carefully and divided into two essential parts: The first part describes the physical principles underlying each imaging technique, along potential associated artifacts and pitfalls; the second part addresses clinical applications and novel applications of each method. With a strong focus on the clinical application of each modality or technique in CNS radiology, this book provides in-depth chapter coverage of: • Ultrasound Vascular Imaging (UVI) • Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) • Magnetic Resonance Vascular imaging (MRV) • Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) • Brain perfusion techniques: CT and MRI • Plaque imaging • Intravascular imaging • Pediatric vascular imaging Along with numerous illustrations and case studies, Vascular Imaging of the Central Nervous System: Physical Principles, Clinical Applications, and Emerging Techniques is an important book for those faced with choosing from the wide range of choices available for clinical practice.

Stroke represents a clinical syndrome of rapid onset of focal or sometimes global cerebral deficit with a vascular cause, lasting more than 24 hours or leading to death. Eighty per cent of all strokes are ischaemic, 15% are due to intracerebral haemorrhage, and 5% to subarachnoid haemorrhage. Correct diagnosis is important because treatment options for ischemic stroke may be contraindicated in case of intracerebral haemorrhage. Such exact diagnosis requires state-of-the-art imaging of the brain. But which kind of imaging, how quickly should it be done, should this include imaging of cerebral blood flow, and what is the most cost effective approach? Answering these questions may help to further narrow the gap between experimental and clinical research as well may substantially improve the patient's care.

This book answers frequently asked questions about common pediatric neurosurgical conditions related to vascular malformations of the brain and spinal cord, in an attempt to fill in the gap and answer numerous questions that arises after a diagnosis is made. Pediatric patients with neurosurgical conditions are almost always referred from either primary care physicians, neurologists internists or a specialist in family medicine. Recently, neurosurgeons treating adult population also refer a pediatric patient to their colleague specialized in this field. There are over 1500 academic and private hospitals in the US who have dedicated tertiary Neurosurgery services and cater thousands of small children every year, in addition to numerous centers that have level 1 and 2 trauma care. However, there are few tertiary level Pediatric centers which can provide quality care for neurosurgical conditions. This book is specially written and illustrated for residents, fellows and consultants/attendings in all pediatric related specialties, including but not limited to Neurosurgery, Neurology, Pediatrics, Radiology, Anesthesia.
