Transplantation Pathology with Online Resource
editore: Cambridge University Press
Modernize your approach to graft biopsies, diagnosis and pathogenesis in transplantation pathology, with the second edition of this specialized textbook. Reach the latest classification schemes, combining both anatomic and clinical pathology, and gain a comprehensive understanding of detailed pathological processes, affecting both host and graft. Following publication of the first edition in 2009, technological advances in understanding of transplant immunology and physiology have enhanced many aspects of pathological diagnoses. This edition bridges key knowledge gaps in pathophysiologic mechanisms and constantly evolving clinical protocols, facilitating strong support for the pathologist, clinician, and student. Authored by leading experts in transplantation medicine, this multimedia guide boasts richly illustrated images, underscoring vital diagnostic features for busy readers. Addressing topics such as the immunopathology of graft rejection, laboratory medicine and dermatological complications in transplantation, this textbook engages with a variety of underlying pathogeneses, taking into account current laboratory and clinical findings, worldwide.
The Practice of Surgical Pathology
A Beginner's Guide to the Diagnostic Process
Diana Weedman Molavi
editore: Springer International Publishing AG
In pathology education within North America, there exists a wide gap in the pedagogy between medical school and residency. As a result, the pathology intern often comes into residency unprepared. Completely illustrated in color, this book lays the foundation of practical pathology and provides a scaffold on which to build a knowledge base. It includes basic introductory material and progresses through each organ system. Within each chapter, there is a brief review of salient normal histology, a discussion of typical specimen types, a strategic approach to the specimen, and a discussion of how the multitude of different diagnoses relate to each other.
Essential and Basic Concepts
Baloch Zubair, Gupta Prabodh
editore: Cambridge University Press
This book represents the essentials of diagnostic cytopathology. Clinical research has confirmed the efficacy of the cytologic method of disease diagnosis and it is now considered the definitive method for identifying a wide array of malignancies. Cytohistology: Essential and Basic Concepts comprehensively covers all the morphologic variations and landmarks in cells that can potentially signal disease. Morphologies in cancer are the primary focus but all potential changes in infectious and inflammatory disorders are also covered in detail. There is a separate section on molecular and other ancillary diagnostic techniques in cytopathology. Conceptual drawings presented in a pansystemic approach and incorporating state-of-the-art techniques show basic cytomorphologic features essential for interpretation of cytopathology specimens. Diagnostic pitfalls and challenging intellectual nuggets are also presented. A supplementary CD with images in a downloadable format is included.
A Pattern Recognition Approach
Andrew A. Renshaw
This new cytopathology resource takes a pattern-recognition approach to the interpretation of difficult aspirates, giving readers all of the tools they need to make the right diagnosis. A unique tabular design presents at a glance key information on the cytologic features, pitfalls, work up, and reporting for each lesion. More than 700 brilliant, full-colour photographs illustrate a full range of patterns found in aspirated tissue samples.
