(BQ) Part 1 book "Liver pathology - An atlas and concise guide" presentation of content: Approach to liver specimens, normal, minor, and structural alterations, acute liver diseases, chronic liver disorders.
The current format of the United States Medical Licensing Examination
Step 1 (USMLE Step 1) exam emphasizes clinical vignettes—in single-bestanswer
multiple-choice format—as the only test question. The examination
is 350 questions broken into seven blocks of 50 questions each.
Examinees have one hour to complete each block.
Clinical Vignettes for the USMLE Step 1: Fourth Edition parallels this
format. The book contains 350 clinical vignette-style questions covering
the core basic sciences and was assembled based on the published content
outline for the USMLE Step 1.
The overall approach to learning medicine can be summed up in two questions: What is it? What do you do for it? The
goal is to have a concise review that is readable and easy to follow with algorithms, diagrams, radiographs, and pathologic findings.
This book is divided into subspecialty topics, each chapter written by an author(s) with clinical expertise in the designated
topic. Images and tables are provided. Each chapter has bulleted items that highlight key points. These may be summary points
from previous paragraphs or new points. Bulleted items also address typical clinical scenarios.
This book provides a practical approach for MR imaging of the focal and diffuse liver lesions based on
the state-of-the-art MR imaging sequences, computer-generated drawings, concise figure captions, relevant
and systematic (differential) diagnostic information, recent literature references, and patient
management possibilities. MR imaging findings are correlated to ultrasound, computed tomography,
and pathology when appropriate.
The science of vascular biology has emerged and expanded rapidly over the past 25
years. Research in this area has increased understanding of a wide range of clinical
conditions. This book provides a broad overview of the Weld for both specialist
and newcomer to the Weld, and concise resource for the non-specialist. The
multidisciplinary team of contributors covers topics ranging from normal and
pathological aspects of endothelial cell function to the role of the vasculature in
pregnancy, hypertension and atherosclerosis....
The paper describes a novel computational tool for multiple concept learning. Unlike previous approaches, whose major goal is prediction on unseen instances rather than the legibility of the output, our MPD (Maximally Parsimonious Discrimination) program emphasizes the conciseness and intelligibility of the resultant class descriptions, using three intuitive simplicity criteria to this end. We illustrate MPD with applications in componential analysis (in lexicology and phonology), language typology, and speech pathology. ...
