This superbly illustrated atlas provides a comprehensive presentation of the normal sectional anatomy of the musculoskeletal system to aid in the diagnosis of diseases affecting the joints, soft tissues, bones, and bone marrow. A precise, full-color drawing accompanies each high-quality sectional image, helping the reader to gain a solid understanding of the topographic anatomy and to differentiate between normal and pathologic conditions. Following examples of whole-body imaging, the atlas offers complete representations of the spinal column and the upper and lower extremities. The contiguous images of the extremities in transverse sections facilitate the identification of structures extending beyond the joints. Key features: Top-quality MRI scans, including whole-body views, produced with the most current, high-performance equipment Full-color illustrations drawn by the authors for optimal precision and accuracy Easy identification of anatomic structures through a uniform color code in the drawings Contiguous cross-sectional anatomy of the extremities Information on the location and direction of each slice for rapid orientation Atlas of Sectional Anatomy: The Musculoskeletal System is an invaluable reference for the daily practice of radiologists, radiology residents, and radiologic technologists.
In this easily accessible pocket atlas, two expert radiologists present the normal radiographic anatomy readers need in order to interpret conventional diagnostic radiographs. Each practical, two-page unit displays a standard radiograph of a different projection on the left-hand side supplemented by a detailed, clearly labeled schematic drawing on the opposing page. The consistent, user-friendly format facilitates easy identification and rapid review of key anatomic information. Features: 177 radiographic studies provide multiple views of every basic anatomic structure High-resolution radiographs appear beside explanatory drawings to aid comprehension Seven examinations new to this edition cover a trans-scapular ´´Y´´ view of the shoulder; 45° external and internal rotation views of the knee; and more An ideal reference for anyone involved in the interpretation of commonly performed radiographic studies, the third edition of Pocket Atlas of Radiographic Anatomy is an especially valuable tool not only for medical students and radiology residents, but also for radiological technologists.
A provocative and surprising investigation into the ways that profit, personalities, and politics obstruct real progress in the war on cancer - and one doctor’s passionate call to action As a diagnostic radiologist who has watched patients, friends, and family suffer with and die from cancer - and who was deeply affected by the enraged husband of one particular patient - Dr. Margaret I. Cuomo has been inspired to seek out new strategies for waging a smarter war on cancer. About 1.6 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed a year, and more than 1,500 people die each day. We’ve been asked to accept the disappointing strategy to ´´manage cancer as a chronic disease.” We’ve allowed pharmaceutical companies to position as breakthroughs cancer drugs that extend life by mere weeks and may cost $100,000 for a single course of treatment. Where is the bold leadership that will transform our system from treatment to prevention? Have we forgotten the mission of the National Cancer Act of 1971 to ´´conquer cancer?” Through an analysis of more than 40 years of medical evidence and interviews with the top cancer researchers, drug company executives, and health policy advisers, Dr. Cuomo reveals the intriguing answers to these questions. She shows us how all cancer stakeholders - the pharmaceutical industry, the government, physicians, and concerned citizens - can change the way we view and fight cancer in this country. About the author: Margaret I. Cuomo, MD, is a board-certified radiologist and served as an attending physician in diagnostic radiology at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, New York, for many years. Specializing in body imaging using CT, ultrasound, MRI, and interventional procedures, much of her practice was dedicated to the diagnosis of cancer and AIDS. 1. Language: English.
