  • Children of depressed mothers : from early childhood to maturity / Marian Radke-Yarrow, in collaboration with Pedro Martinez, Anne Mayfield, and Donna Ronsaville
    RC 537 R33 1998
    The study presented in this book imposes a developmental perspective on the psychopathology of offspring of depressed mothers. A primary theme is the interplay of factors in child (developmental stage, gender, temperament) and environment (depressed mother's symptomatic behaviour and family functioning) as contributors to psychiatric and psychosocial problems in offspring. Children and their families are followed from toddler-hood to the threshold of adulthood. The emergence and evolution of problems differ by mother's diagnosis - unipolar and bipolar depressed as well. Configurations of variables in the individual child are identified which, in combination, create diverse processes that put offspring at risk for specific problems. Early depressed mother-child relationships are strongly influential. Specific affective and temperament qualities of mother and child act reciprocally, increasing. The longitudinal data grasp the nature of connectedness of early experience to ongoing development, and identify patterns of child-to-adult connections. Findings suggest new questions and revised research paradigms.

  • M-Health : Fundamentals and Applications

    Addresses recent advances from both the clinical and technological perspectives to provide a comprehensive presentation of m-Health

    This book introduces the concept of m-Health, first coined by Robert S. H. Istepanian in 2003. The evolution of m-Health since then--how it was transformed from an academic concept to a global healthcare technology phenomenon--is discussed. Afterwards the authors describe in detail the basics of the three enabling scientific technological elements of m-Health (sensors, computing, and communications), and how each of these key ingredients has evolved and matured over the last decade. The book concludes with detailed discussion of the future of m-Health and presents future directions to potentially shape and transform healthcare services in the coming decades. In addition, this book:

    Discusses the rapid evolution of m-Health in parallel with the maturing process of its enabling technologies, from bio-wearable sensors to the wireless and mobile communication technologies from IOT to 5G systems and beyond Includes clinical examples and current studies, particularly in acute and chronic disease management, to illustrate some of the relevant medical aspects and clinical applications of m-Health Describes current m-Health ecosystems and business models Covers successful applications and deployment examples of m-Health in various global health settings, particularly in developing countries

  • Combined scintigraphic and radiographic diagnosis of bone and joint diseases : including gamma correction interpretation / Yong-Whee Bahk

    In the fifth edition of this highly successful book, the author once again aims to equip the reader with up-to-date information that will facilitate accurate diagnosis of bone and joint diseases by means of combined use of scintigraphy and radiology. Two entirely new chapters have been added, one on the use of 18F-NaF PET/CT and the other on gamma correction scan diagnosis of bone trabecular microfracture and microcontusion as well as bone edema and hemorrhage. Further topics covered for the first time include enthesopathies, myositis, soft tissue diseases, cryptic bones, and differential diagnosis. Individual chapters have been updated and rearranged to reflect the latest advances in imaging diagnosis. As before, a vast number of state of the art gamma correction pinhole bone scans and corroborative conventional radiographs and CT, MRI, and/or ultrasound images are presented side by side. In this new edition, extension of the application of gamma correction to other imaging methods such as MRI and CT and the solution of the halation problem are necessarily addressed. This fifth edition of Combined Scintigraphic and Radiographic Diagnosis of Bone and Joint Diseases will be essential reading for practitioners and researchers in nuclear medicine, radiology, orthopedic surgery, pathology, anatomy, and imaging sciences at large.

    This book covers the full range of Doppler echocardiography in infants and children, documenting the wide variety of potential findings with the aid of a wealth of high‑quality images. The imaging features of more than 20 conditions on conventional two‑dimensional echocardiography, pulsed wave, continuous wave and color Doppler imaging are described and depicted, drawing attention to differential diagnostic criteria and other issues of importance in everyday clinical practice. Each condition is individually addressed, covering all relevant aspects, and helpful information is also provided on the normal examination. The book is supplemented by more than 500 videos demonstrating typical findings of two-dimensional and color Doppler echocardiography. Special chapters focus on the differential diagnosis of cyanotic infants and echocardiography specifically for the neonatologist. The authors' aim in compiling this book is to equip the reader with the knowledge required in order to employ Doppler echocardiography optimally and to interpret findings confidently and correctly. Doppler Echocardiography in Infancy and Childhood will be an invaluable reference for echocardiographers, pediatricians, neonatologists, and pediatric and general radiologists.

  • Pulmonary hypertension in adult congenital heart disease / Konstantinos Dimopoulos, Gerhard-Paul Diller, editors

    This book is intended as a comprehensive, practically oriented reference on pulmonary hypertension within the context of adult congenital heart disease (ACHD). After an introductory chapter on pathophysiology, the various types of pulmonary hypertension that may be encountered in ACHD are discussed, highlighting the specifics observed within different patient categories. The diagnostic approach is then addressed in detail, and the last section of the book is devoted to management options, from conservative approaches to interventional treatment and the concept of treat and repair. Management in specific patient subjects, such as pregnant women, Fontan patients, and Down syndrome patients with Eisenmenger syndrome, is fully discussed, and guidance is also provided on palliative care.
    Pulmonary arterial hypertension related to congenital heart disease (PAH-CHD), despite significant similarities in lung pathohysiology, differs significantly from other types of PAH in terms of mechanism of onset, natural history and management. Mistakes and pitfalls in the management of patients with PAH-CHD are often related to a lack of knowledge or expertise in this condition.  Pulmonary Hypertension in Adult Congenital Heart Disease  will be a valuable resource and learning tool for all who care for patients with ACHD, both in tertiary practice and general cardiology.

  • Diagnostic clusters in shoulder conditions / Puneet Monga, Lennard Funk, editors

  • Neurotoxicity of metals Michael Aschner, Lucio G. Costa, editors

  • Atlas of anatomy of the peripheral nerves : the nerves of the limbs / Philippe Rigoard, editor
    This innovative atlas focuses on peripheral nerves and provides a brand new approach compared to regular anatomy books. Using a modern 3D approach, it offers an alternative to conventional anatomical structures. It reviews all the anatomy and the morphology of these structures from an original point of view.  In these three-dimensional diagrams, as well as in the watercolor drawings enhanced with a 3D inlay, each type of nerve is depicted in a minute detail.  The atlas simplifies the anatomy and make it easy and understandable by allowing readers to develop a mental "real-time 3D GPS".  The integration of MRI sections related to the drawings and the descriptions of the main nerve injuries provide medical students with a flexible but effective transition to the radiological interpretation and furthers the clinical learning process.  After a detailed evaluation of the morphofunctional anatomy of the peripheral nerves, the authors present a collection of relevant data on neuromuscular transmission, both from classical and recent literature, ranging from the central and peripheral nervous system to the effector muscle. This information offers a basis for understanding the physiology, the pathology, and the repair prospects of peripheral nerves from a purely theoretical point of view. The book is divided into three main parts:  - Fundamental notions: from immunohistochemistry to limb innervation - The upper limb: the brachial plexus and related peripheral nerves - The lower limb: the lumbosacral plexus and related peripheral nerves

    This atlas also features 261 outstanding full-colour 2D and 3D illustrations. Each picture has been designed in 2D and 3D with a combination of the original editor's personal drawings/paintings and 3D-modeling tools.  This book is a valuable resource for anyone studying medicine, anaesthesiology, neurosurgery, spine surgery, pain, radiology or rheumatology and is also of high interest to the whole medical community in general.

  • The politics of Global AIDS : institutionalization of solidarity, exclusion of context / Hakan Seckinelgin
    This timely book looks critically at the policy response to AIDS and its institutionalization over time. It raises important questions about who benefits, who decides, and in whose interests decisions are made. Taking the early international response to the epidemic as its starting point, and focusing on the work of agencies such as UNAIDS, it identifies two logics underpinning strategy to date. First, the idea of HIV as a 'global emergency' which calls for an extraordinary response.  Second, the claim that medicine offers the best way of dealing with it. The book also identified the rise of something more dominant   - namely Global AIDS - or the logic and system that seeks to displace all others. Promulgated by UNAIDS and its partner agencies, Global AIDS claims to speak the truth on behalf of affected persons and communities everywhere.  Founded on   solidarity claims concerning the international HIV movement, and distinctive knowledge practices which determine what needs to be done. Alternative views about the nature of the epidemic or the best response are rejected as irrelevant for falling outside the master framing of the epidemic that Global AIDS provides. But to what extent is this biomedical and emergency framing of the epidemic sustainable, and to what extent does it speak to the sustainability of lives as affected people wish them to be lived?  Does scientific and biomedical advance provide all the answers, or do important social and political issues need to be addressed?  This book provides an innovative framework with which to think about these and other sustainability challenges for the future.

  • Mitigation of cancer therapy side-effects with light / Raj Nair, René-Jean Bensadoun
    RC 271 C5N356 2016eb

    'Light' from low level laser therapy, through a process called photobiomodulation (PBM), has been in existence in supportive care in cancer, in particular in the management of oral mucositis (OM) in patients undergoing chemotherapy, radiation therapy and haematopoietic stem cell transplantation. In this book the authors attempt to portray the current status of the supportive care interventions that are possible with PBM using low level laser therapy (LLLT) in patients undergoing cancer treatment for solid tumours, harmatological malignancies, and head and neck cancers.

  • The physics and mathematics of MRI / Richard Ansorge, Martin Graves
    RC 78.7 N83A577 2016eb
    Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a very important clinical imaging tool. It combines different fields of physics and engineering in a uniquely complex way. MRI is also surprisingly versatile, 'pulse sequences' can be designed to yield many different types of contrast. This versatility is unique to MRI. This short book gives both an in depth account of the methods used for the operation and construction of modern MRI systems and also the principles of sequence design and many examples of applications. An important additional feature of this book is the detailed discussion of the mathematical principles used in building optimal MRI systems and for sequence design. The mathematical discussion is very suitable for undergraduates attending medical physics courses. It is also more complete than usually found in alternative books for physical scientists or more clinically orientated works.

  • Antimicrobial photodynamic inactivation and antitumor photodynamic therapy with fullerenes / Lucas F. de Freitas, Michael R. Hamblin
    RC 271 P43F743 2016eb
    This book provides detailed and current information on using fullerenes (bucky-balls) in photodynamic therapy (PDT), one of the most actively studied applications of photonic science in healthcare. This will serve as a useful source for researchers working in photomedicine and nanomedicine, especially those who are investigating PDT for cancer treatment and infectious disease treatment. The book runs the gamut from an introduction to the history and chemistry of fullerenes and some basic photochemistry, to the application of fullerenes as photosensitizers for cancer and antimicrobial inactivation.
