Applied Radiological Anatomy for Medical Students is the definitive atlas of
human anatomy, utilizing the complete range of imaging modalities
to describe normal anatomy and radiological findings.
Initial chapters describe all imaging techniques and introduce the
principles of image interpretation. These are followed by
comprehensive sections on each antomical region.
Hundreds of high-quality radiographs, MRI, CT and ultrasound
images are included, complemented by concise, focused text.
The goal of this second edition of Medical Physiology is to
provide a clear, accurate, and up-to-date introduction to
medical physiology for medical students and students in
the allied health sciences. Physiology, the study of normal
function, is key to understanding pathophysiology and
pharmacology and is essential to the everyday practice of
In the 4th edition we have distilled the text to a set of fl ow diagrams with
linked tables. Our aim is to provide the doctor caring for an acutely ill patient
with rapid access to key information, including a balanced interpretation of
current national and international guidelines.
We have substantially broadened the scope of the book to cover all problems
in general medicine likely to be encountered in the emergency department.
Integration of the use of echocardiography, which we believe is as
important in acute medicine as ECG interpretation, is a particular feature of
Ten years after the publication of the first edition of Introduction to Medical Immunology, the ideal immunology
textbook continues to be a very elusive target. The discipline continues to grow at a brisk pace, and the concepts tend to
become obsolete as quickly as we put them in writing. It is very true of immunology that the more we know, the greater
our ignorance. This represents the challenge that makes teaching immunology so exceptional and writing immunology
textbooks such a daunting task.
From ‘Abortion rate’ to ‘Zygosity determination’, this accessible introduction to the terminology
of medical statistics describes more than 1500 terms, all clearly explained, illustrated and defined
in non-technical language, without any mathematical formulae!With the majority of terms
revised and updated and the addition of more than 100 brand new definitions, this new edition
will enable medical students to quickly grasp the meaning of any of the statistical terms they
encounter when reading the medical literature....
Micro-organisms are mostly harmless,
non-pathogenic, and indeed may be beneficial.
It is estimated that a human body has about
10" cells, but only 10% of these are human in
origin; the rest is almost entirely microbial flora.
Medical microbiology is the study of microscopic
organisms and their effect on man. It encompasses
their biology, diagnosis, treatment and prevention.
This book has been written to enable health care workers to understand the principles of
managing an acute medical emergency safely and effectively.To achieve this aim it provides
a structured approach to medical emergencies, describing relevant pathophysiology
that will also help to explain physical signs and the rationale behind treatment.The first
edition of this manual (written by Terry Wardle) has undergone significant modification
directed by the working group and also, in particular, candidates from the first
Nearly a decade elapsed between publication of the second and third editions
of Basic Medical Endocrinology due in large part to the turmoil in the publishing
industry brought on by massive consolidation.Although this edition is new and the
publisher is new, the aims of earlier editions of this work are unchanged. Its focus
remains human endocrinology with an emphasis on cellular and molecular
mechanisms presented in the context of integration of body functions.
Statistical Methods in Medical Research is a peer reviewed scholarly journal and is the leading vehicle for articles in all the main areas of medical statistics and an essential reference for all medical statisticians. This unique journal is devoted solely to statistics and medicine and aims to keep professionals abreast of the many powerful statistical techniques now available to the medical profession.
This book is intended as a textbook for a course in radiation physics in aca-demic medical physics graduate programs. The book may also be of interestto the large number of professionals, not only physicists, who in their dailyoccupations deal with various aspects of medical physics and have a need toimprove their understanding of radiation physics.Medical physics is a rapidly growing specialty of physics, concerned withthe application of physics to medicine mainly, but not exclusively, in the ap-plication of ionizing radiation to diagnosis and treatment of human disease...
e body of knowledge in endocrinology
has expanded enormously since the fi rst edition
of this text appeared two decades ago, and the
pace of discovery has been no less robust since
the appearance of the third edition. Research in
endocrinology continues to produce new revelations
and insights, sometimes deepening our
level of understanding of well-established phenomena,
and sometimes leading us to reevaluate
and reinterpret long-held doctrines.
Pharmacologically induced sedation has become pervasive throughout
medical practice to accomplish diagnostic and minor therapeutic procedures
effectively and humanely. As diagnostic techniques and technical procedures
become more complex, the need for sedation in patients with varied
co-morbid conditions, in diverse settings produces a series of questions
regarding safety and effectiveness.
The field of drug therapy is a rapidly changing and somewhat bewildering area to study. In
developing and writing this textbook, we consulted the most up-to-date sources for information
on new drug therapies. No textbook can be complete, especially when it covers an area as vast as
the field of ocular pharmacology and therapeutics. Nonetheless, we have made a conscientious
effort to cover the most important and commonly used medications in a format that is easy to
The Final FRCA examination has a daunting syllabus which is tested by a multiple
choice paper, by written short answer questions, and by two oral examinations, one
in clinical anaesthesia, and a second in applied basic clinical science. This book is
intended to give you some insight into how the clinical science viva works, along
with some general guidance as to how to improve your chances of passing. More
importantly it aims to provide you with a wide range of potential questions which
contain, nonetheless, a manageable amount of information....
The General Dental Council’s core ethical guidance booklet ‘Standards for dental
professionals’ and associated, supplementary guidance, emphasise that all dental
professionals are responsible for putting patients’ interests first, and acting to
Central to this responsibility is the need for dental professionals to ensure that they
are able to deal with medical emergencies that may arise in their practice.
In the summer of 1866, the author of this little book, moved by the repeated and earnest solicitation of his
Medical Classes, prepared and printed a small pamphlet entitled Practical Principles of Medical Electricity,
designed more particularly, as the present work also is, as a Hand-Book to assist the memory of those who
have taken a regular course of LECTURES from himself, or from some other competent instructor in the same
general system of Practice. The edition of that work was exhausted somewhat more than a year ago. Still, the
book has continued to be frequently called for.
This book is the brainchild of the fourth Optoelectronic and Photonic Winter
School on “Biophotonics” which took place from 25th February 2007 to 3rd
March 2007 in Sardagna, a small village on the mountains around Trento
in Italy. This school, held every two years, have been promoted to trace the
very fast developing technologies and the tremendous progress in photonics
which have occurred and will occur in the near future. It is a common view
that its current explosive development will lead to deep paradigm shifts in
the near future.
Illness and death are important events for people everywhere. No one is spared. However, faith and medical practice not the same everywhere. How do people understand the causes of illness and death and how they deal with these events culture different from culture. It is not surprising therefore that the medical practitioners and others are becoming increas ingly aware of the need to understand the influence of the social and cultural beliefs and medical practice. Culture the usual ways of thinking and acting in a society often affect the outcome of disease, illness and even occur.
