Netter's Introduction to Imaging, by Larry R. Cochard, PhD, Lori A Goodhartz, MD Carla B, Harmath, MD, Nancy M. Major MD, and Srinivasan Mukundan, JR, MD, makes interpreting normal and abnormal X-ray, CT, and MR images easy by correlating them with crystal-clear Netter illustrations. You'll learn to recognize anatomical relationships in images and apply them to a variety of examples of pathology throughout the body, including the imaging of masses, air, or blood in organs and spaces...fractures, thickening, constriction, and compression...and more. You can also access the book from any computer at studentconsult.com. It's an ideal introduction to diagnostic imaging! Visualize anatomical structures and relationships with perfect clarity with the aid of vivid, colorful Netter artwork. The coloring, texture, and idealized emphasis help you interpret relationships between structures and compartments as seen in cross section and in X-rays, CT, and MRI. Develop your ability to better identify pathologies by viewing normal healthy anatomical images and abnormal images. Comparative images reinforce your basic understanding of what normal tissues and anatomy look like and serve as a guide in recognizing disease patterns and processes: atypically large or small organs and compartments, masses, air, or blood in organs and spaces, fractures, thickening, constriction, compression, and more. Understand the principles that underlie X-ray, CT, MR, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine imaging, the use of contrast and angiography. Understand how radiologists apply systematic search strategies in imaging studies of each region of the body. Access the complete text and images online at studentconsult.com

The Radiography Procedure and Competency Manual, 2nd Edition

The Radiography Procedure and Competency Manual, 2nd Edition

Author: Anita Biedrzycki Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/08/2020

Be prepared for the updated ARRT competency requirements! To qualify for the certification exam, students must now demonstrate their competency in all 36 mandatory procedures and in at least 15 of the 30 elective procedures, and faculty must verify their students' proficiencies. These procedure checklists make it easy for everyone to do so. And, it's the perfect tool for helping students to learn to make the decisions that will produce the highest quality radiographs while considering the needs and limitations of the patient. First, students can use the checklists to review the procedures in preparation for the exam. Then, instructors can use them to record their procedural and competency evaluations of the student. And, finally, program directors can use them to verify to the ARRT that the student has demonstrated the required competencies and proficiencies.

McLean Course in Electrodiagnostic Medicine

McLean Course in Electrodiagnostic Medicine

Author: Christopher Visco, Gary Chimes Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/08/2020

The McLean Course in Electrodiagnostic Medicine is a resident-tested curriculum designed to help trainees in PM&R and neurology gain competency in basic electrodiagnostic techniques and prepare them to become functional Electrodiagnosticians on day one of their clinical rotation. The material is broken into discrete units and follows a standardised format. Each study includes bulleted lists of objectives, fundamental concepts and tips for success. The procedures are presented as illustrated tables with specifics for lead placement, stimulation, sample waveforms and photographs to guide electrodiagnostic set-ups. Multiple choice questions and answers with explanations follow each unit to reinforce learning. This book is the perfect tool to prepare you for all of your electrodiagnostic studies, either for individual self-directed learning or as part of a structured curriculum. The McLean Course in Electrodiagnostic Medicine is the outgrowth of a course developed at the Kessler Institute in 2004 by a group of Residents led by the late Jim McLean. The course was initiated to further the understanding of electrodiagnostic fundamentals and provide hands-on practise for Residents. Today the course has been adopted as part of the official curriculum at the Kessler Institute, is taught each spring at the Annual AAP meeting and is on the curriculum of several other major institutions. Features of The McLean Course in Electrodiagnostic Medicine include: A step-by-step guide for the novice Electrodiagnostician presented as a readily implemented course Emphasis on skills and concepts required for success in beginning a clinical rotation Formatted multi-layered didactic approach facilitates independent learning Clear, easy to understand tables and photos illustrate each set-up and study Practical exam and quizzes provide measures for self-assessment and course effectiveness

AI Innovation in Medical Imaging Diagnostics

AI Innovation in Medical Imaging Diagnostics

Author: Kalaivani Anbarasan Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/07/2020

Recent advancements in the technology of medical imaging, such as CT and MRI scanners, are making it possible to create more detailed 3D and 4D images. These powerful images require vast amounts of digital data to help with the diagnosis of the patient. Artificial intelligence (AI) must play a vital role in supporting with the analysis of this medical imaging data, but it will only be viable as long as healthcare professionals and AI interact to embrace deep thinking platforms such as automation in the identification of diseases in patients. AI Innovation in Medical Imaging Diagnostics is an essential reference source that examines AI applications in medical imaging that can transform hospitals to become more efficient in the management of patient treatment plans through the production of faster imaging and the reduction of radiation dosages through the PET and SPECT imaging modalities. The book also explores how data clusters from these images can be translated into small data packages that can be accessed by healthcare departments to give a real-time insight into patient care and required interventions. Featuring research on topics such as assistive healthcare, cancer detection, and machine learning, this book is ideally designed for healthcare administrators, radiologists, data analysts, computer science professionals, medical imaging specialists, diagnosticians, medical professionals, researchers, and students.
