This concise integrated handbook looks at all available imaging methods for head and neck cancer, highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of each method. The information is provided in a clinical context and will guide radiologists as to the information the clinician actually needs when managing a patient with head and neck cancer. It will also provide the clinician with the advantages and limitations of imaging. The text therefore deals with Ultrasound, CT and MRI. The initial chapters aim to give the reader a core knowledge, which can be used in imaging by the various methods described. The subsequent chapters are directed towards clinical problems and deal with the common cancers in a logical order.

|Diagnostic Histopathology of the Bone Marrow
Lowest new price: $93.59
Lowest used price: $16.84
List price: $295.00
Author: James A. Strauchen
A succinct, single-authored text and atlas of bone marrow pathology, this book is based on over 10,000 bone marrow biopsies. Divided into seven sections, it covers indications and techniques for biopsy, normal findings, and bone marrow alterations in specific neoplastic and non-neoplastic disorders and other diseases. The author approaches the practical problems and pitfalls in making particular types of diagnoses. The volume is lavishly illustrated with over 300 full-color photographs. The emphasis has been placed on the histologic interpretation of the bone marrow core biopsy, but the histopathologic findings have been integrated with clinical and laboratory features, as well as with peripheral blood and bone marrow aspiration morphology.
Morphology is, in fact, accorded special attention in this book, since it remains the "gold standard" for many hematologic diagnoses and is the appropriate point of departure for more complex diagnostic investigations. More advanced immunologic and molecular techniques are not overlooked, however, and a discussion of these newer techniques is incorporated in the analysis throughout the text. Written as an introduction and guide to the interpretation of the bone marrow biopsy, this volume is intended primarily for pathologists and pathologists-in-training, but may also be used successfully by hematologists and oncologist who perform bone marrow biopsies.

The Practical Guide to The Genetic Family History Robin L. Bennett Compiling the most recent genetic developments in medical specialties, The Practical Guide to the Genetic Family History is a valuable resource which outlines the proper methods for taking and recording a patient's family medical history, allowing primary care physicians to be more efficient in diagnosing conditions with potential genetic components. With genetic screening forms, an overview of directed questions, pedigree nomenclature, and outlining common approaches used, genetic counselor Robin L. Bennett provides readers with the basic foundation in human genetics necessary to recognize inherited disorders and familial disease susceptibility in patients. As the only guide which is geared for the physician in this field, The Practical Guide to the Genetic Family History includes remarks by renowned medical geneticist Arno Motulsky, as well as information on structuring an accurate pedigree and its components, including:
* Using a pedigree to identify individuals with an increased susceptibility to cancer
* Family history, adoption, and their challenges
* The connection between the pedigree and assisted reproductive technologies
* Making referrals for genetic services
* Neurological and neuromuscular conditions
* Tables covering hearing loss, mental retardation, dementia, and seizures
* Five case studies of genetics in practice
An essential reference for genetics clinics, medical geneticists, and counselors, The Practical Guide to the Genetic Family History is also an invaluable aid for both primary care and specialist physicians who need an up-to-date reference that emphasizes both the science and art of modern clinical genetics.
|In Search of a Cure: A History of Pharmaceutical Discovery
Lowest new price: $91.84

Author: M. Weatherall
Brand: Brand: Oxford University Press, USA
This fascinating volume chronicles the role of therapeutics in medical practice and the emergence of the multi-million dollar pharmaceutical industry. It traces the origin of modern medicine from early individual experiments to the development of modern "miracle" drugs and vaccines. Placing this history in its social context, the book describes the profound changes that have accompanied the advent of new medicines, and the social pressures that have driven the research effort. This is also the story of the men and women who have participated in these discoveries, and the changing role of medical professionals brought about by powerful antibiotics and other modern cures. The author brings to his account a deep understanding of the subject, rooted in his experience as a physician trainee in the period before immunization for diptheria and other deadly diseases became widely available. His presentation clearly balances the benefits and risks of today's powerful pharmaceuticals, and discusses the danger of accepting treatments which have no demonstrable worth. This authoritative volume provides a rare view into scientific discovery for anyone with an interest in medicine and history.
