ACSM's Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription began as a concise summary of recommendations for exercise testing and prescription primarily for cardiac patients; it has now become one of the single most internationally read and referenced texts of its kind. This reference is a virtual pharmacopoeia of exercise guidelines in a broad spectrum of patients. In this new edition there is heightened emphasis on preventing illness in apparently healthy persons and those "at risk", as well as treating patients with chronic disease. There are also two new chapters on methods for changing exercise behavior and legal issues.

Despite the fact that Interventional Radiology is steadily moving toward a cli- cal specialty with the need for broad medical training, daily craftsmanship will always remain fundamental to what an interventional radiologist does. Without basic catheter and wire skills IR would not be what it is today. When I watch ex- rienced colleagues work I am always surprised to see that, concerning the technique and the materials, we all make the same choices. There is apparently a common IR skill, which is universal and can be learned with experience. I always see this with new IR fellows, that it takes time to step away from improvising and letting the p- cedure take the lead to logic and standardized control over a procedure. Choosing the right materials for the right job and building a level of con dence with these materials is a very important part of any IR fellowship. Why can a supervisor get a stable catheter position with a new wire in no time, whereas the fellow almost gives up? The difference is knowing your materials for this speci c indication and c- bining routine and standardized operational procedures. Hands-on workshops are always very popular at every IR meeting because one can really learn about basic skills. Lectures with the title “How I do it,” can always count on a full audience.

|Multidetector Computed Tomography in Cerebrovascular Disease: CT Perfusion Imaging
Lowest new price: $79.93
Lowest used price: $92.92
List price: $115.95
Multidetector Computed Tomography in Cerebrovascular Disease: CT Perfusion Imaging focuses on anatomy and procedural strategy for perfusion CT imaging in clinical neurology and cerebrovascular disease. This text-atlas combines pictures and schematic diagrams to show how this new modality can be used to assess anatomy and guide therapeutic interventions.
Beginning with an introductory section discussing the state of the art and background support (including software) related to the technique, the book then reviews applications in managing stroke, thrombosis and tumors. It concludes with a section that evaluates the utility of perfusion CT in comparison with other modalities such as MRI.
A comprehensive introduction to further clinical applications of a newly established technology, this volume demonstrates the utility of the technique and covers all relevant theory necessary for its implementation.

|Electrophysiologic Testing (Practical Cardiac Diagnosis)
Lowest new price: $23.42
Lowest used price: $1.25

Author: Richard N. Fogoros MD
This book demystifies the electrophysiologic study of those who deal with cardiac arrhythmia patients, and who are often in the position for referring patients for this procedure. Part I explores the basic principles underlying disorders of the heart rhythm. Part II emphasizes the effectiveness of electrophysiologic testing, and clarifies its role in the evaluation and treatment of cardiac arrythmias, and in the prevention of sudden cardiac death.
The major changes in this new edition include extensive revision in two areas: the remarkable advancement and growth of transcatheter ablation in the last few years; and the significant changes in thought in the treatment of ventricular arrhythmias. In addition, the second edition includes a new chapter on the use of EP testing in the evaluation of syncope. This discusses the indications for EP testing in patients with syncope, as well as tilt table testing for these patients. The author notes that this latter technique has fallen under the purview of electrophysiologists, and is most often carried our in electrophysiology labs in conjunction with invasive EP testing
