How to Think Like a Radiologist: Ordering Imaging Studies 1st Edition

0521715237

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0521715237]

Radiologic investigations can be confusing to clinicians and radiologists alike. Questions invariably arise as to which type of imaging study best answers the clinical question posed. Once a modality is determined, decisions must be made regarding the technical manner in which the study is performed and if intravenous contrast is required. Patient factors, risks, benefits, and other variables must also be considered. This pocket guide is written for anyone who needs to understand enough about radiology to know which study to order in a patient workup. The book addresses imaging studies by modality, body region, and type of study in bulleted outline format for easy reference. General considerations for each modality – including advantages and disadvantages – are presented, followed by patient preparation and requirements for each type of examination. Dr. Catanzano explains how specific studies are performed and what information can be obtained, study indications, contraindications, and limitations. The book also includes an appendix of tables.

Clinical and Diagnostic Virology (Cambridge Clinical Guides) 1st Edition

413bvngndbl-_sx331_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0521694671]

This basic but comprehensive text is aimed at all healthcare professionals who need a clear understanding of medical virology. Written by two highly experienced virologists, the book is divided into five sections: 1) Individual viruses; 2) Other related agents; 3) Clinical syndromes; 4) Diagnostic techniques; 5) Patient management. The individual virus chapters provide information on incubation period, infectivity, control of infection and management. The clinical syndrome chapters provide information on the clinical presentation of disease, thus enabling the reader to search according to patient symptoms rather than referring to several individual virus chapters. The standard chapter formats, simple language and liberal use of tables, figures and algorithms enable quick access to key information, and the comprehensive coverage of all viral agents is unique in a practical guide of this size.

Childhood Epilepsy: Language, Learning and Behavioural Complications 1st Edition

0521823382

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0521823382]

William Svoboda channels a lifetime of clinical experience into three areas–language, learning, and behavior–that encompass the major difficulties of children “growing up with epilepsy.” In each area he looks at why the problems arise and assesses potential treatments. The focus of this comprehensive work is on the complete care of the child rather than on diagnosis, classification and medication alone. More than half of all epileptic children have interrelated language, learning, and/or behavior complications that persist beyond seizure control and present problems for health and educational systems. This reference makes a significant contribution to furthering the knowledge of clinicians, educators, and language specialists about the needs of this special pediatric population.
