ATLAS OF GENODERMATOSES

Carlo Gelmetti, Gianluca Tadini
e altri

editore: CRC Press Inc

pagine: 552

Diagnosing a genetic skin disease can sometimes be a difficult task for a dermatologist. This is especially true for genodermatoses-generally considered rare diseases seldom seen by practicing clinicians. As a result, professionals often have little experience with their diagnosis. The Atlas of Genodermatoses presents a unique collection of such cases gathered patiently over the course of the years by the authors. It provides an unsurpassed overview of the major genodermatoses encountered in practice, even if only on rare occasions. This book discusses almost 200 inherited diseases of the skin, hair, and nails. The entry for each disease includes its epidemiology, laboratory findings, genetics, pathogenesis, cutaneous and extracutaneous findings, differential diagnosis, disease course, complications, and follow-up and therapy, where appropriate. In addition to being a clinical primer, this atlas is also a work of scientific research. The new edition rewrites the classification of some diseases, adds some newly described conditions, and updates established information with the latest molecular genetic studies and references. Specialists in both dermatology and pediatrics should find the atlas an invaluable frontline resource in the clinic.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy

Brian D. Kavanagh, David J Schlesinger
e altri

editore: CRC Press Inc

pagine: 418

Written by internationally known experts in the field, Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy examines one of the fastest-developing subspecialties within radiation oncology. These procedures deliver large doses of radiation in one to five sessions to a precisely determined target. Often these techniques have proven to be as or more effective than traditional radiation therapy techniques, while at the same time being cost-efficient and convenient for the patient. These techniques, however, require careful planning, specialized equipment, and well-trained staff. This volume provides a cutting-edge look at the biological and technical underpinnings of SRS and SBRT techniques. It includes a history of the development of SRS and SBRT; clinical applications of the techniques; dedicated devices for delivering precisely shaped, high doses of radiation; use of in-room imaging for treatment planning and treatment guidance; immobilization techniques for accurate targeting; and future developments that will continue to evolve and refine existing techniques. A valuable introduction to those just learning about these specialized techniques, and an ideal reference for those who are already implementing them, this book covers a wide variety of topics, with clear discussions of each aspect of the technology employed.

Ultrasound of Congenital Fetal Anomalies

Differential Diagnosis and Prognostic Indicators

Dario Paladini, Paolo Volpe

editore: CRC Press Inc

pagine: 515

The most frequently asked questions that confront the fetal medicine trainee/expert on a daily basis are "Is the finding real or merely an artifact?" and "Is the diagnosis correct?". However, to be able to find the description of an abnormal ultrasound finding in a textbook, one generally has to search by the definite diagnosis, which has not been done as yet. This uneasy feeling was the first factor that directed the layout of Ultrasound of Congenital Fetal Anomalies: Differential Diagnosis and Prognostic Indicators, Second Edition. Copiously illustrated, the book displays fetal anomalies by scanning view and descriptions of all major ultrasound planes, detailing what can be considered a normal view and what cannot. See What's New in the Second Edition: * Early detection of fetal anomalies (1214 weeks) * Ultrasound in fetal infections and in twins * The nuchal translucency issue, the newest intracranial translucency as well as the range of congenital anomalies detectable at this gestational age * Expanded coverage of heart anomalies, including arrhythmias and early fetal echocardiography The author's mission continues to be to provide guidance on how to quickly recognize and diagnose congenital fetal anomalies, beginning at the beginning with ultrasound sigh all the way through to final diagnosis.
