Digital Radiography has been ? rmly established in diagnostic radiology during the last decade. Because of the special requirements of high contrast and spatial resolution needed for roentgen mammography, it took some more time to develop digital m- mography as a routine radiological tool. Recent technological progress in detector and screen design as well as increased ex- rience with computer applications for image processing have now enabled Digital Mammography to become a mature modality that opens new perspectives for the diag- sis of breast diseases. The editors of this timely new volume Prof. Dr. U. Bick and Dr. F. Diekmann, both well-known international leaders in breast imaging, have for many years been very active in the frontiers of theoretical and translational clinical research, needed to bring digital mammography ? nally into the sphere of daily clinical radiology. I am very much indebted to the editors as well as to the other internationally rec- nized experts in the ? eld for their outstanding state of the art contributions to this v- ume. It is indeed an excellent handbook that covers in depth all aspects of Digital Mammography and thus further enriches our book series Medical Radiology. The highly informative text as well as the numerous well-chosen superb illustrations will enable certi? ed radiologists as well as radiologists in training to deepen their knowledge in modern breast imaging.

Magnetic Resonance of Myelin Myelination and Myelin Disorders

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is now considered the imaging modality of choice for the majority of disorders affecting the central nervous system. This is particularly true for gray and white matter disorders, thanks to the superb soft tis sue contrast in MRI which allows gray matter, unmyelinated, and myelinated white matter to be distinguished and their respective disorders identified. The pre sent book is devoted to the disorders of myelin and myelination. A growing amount of detailed in vivo information about myelin, myelination, and myelin dis orders has been derived both from MRI and from MR spectroscopy (MRS). This prompted us to review the clinical, laboratory, biochemical, and pathological data on this subject in order to integrate all available information and to provide im proved insights into normal and disordered myelin and myelination. We will show how the synthesis of all available information contributes to the interpretation of MR images. After a brief historical review about the increasing knowledge on myelin and my elin disorders, we propose a new classification of myelin disorders based on the subcellular localization of the enzymatic defects as far as the inborn errors of me tabolism are concerned. This classification serves as a guide throughout the book. All items of the classification will be discussed and, whenever relevant and possi ble, be illustrated by MR images.

Gastrointestinal Imaging presents a comprehensive review of gastrointestinal pathologies commonly encountered by practicing radiologists and residents in training. Chapters are organized by organ system and include the Pharynx and Esophagus, Stomach, Small Bowel, Appendix, Colon, Anorectum, Liver, Gallbladder, Bile Ducts, Pancreas, Spleen, Peritoneum, Mesentery, and Abdominal Wall, and a chapter on multisystem disorders. Part of the Rotations in Radiology series, this book offers a guided approach to imaging diagnosis with examples of all imaging modalities complimented by the basics of interpretation and technique and the nuances necessary to arrive at the best diagnosis. Each pathology is covered with a targeted discussion that reviews the definition, clinical features, anatomy and physiology, imaging techniques, differential diagnosis, clinical issues, key points, and further reading. This organization is ideal for trainees' use during specific rotations and for exam review, or as a quick refresher for the established gastrointestinal imager.

Rapid advances in neural imaging, particularly in regard to neural plasticity and brain changes, have resulted in an evolving neurorehabilitation paradigm for aphasia and related language disorders. Aphasia and Related Neurogenic Language Disorders has been adopted worldwide as a text for aphasia courses. This new 5th edition by Leonard LaPointe and Julie Stierwalt encompasses state-of-the-art concepts and approaches from an impressive cadre of experts who work in research labs, classrooms, clinics, and hospitals-including the world-renowned Mayo Clinic. As in previous editions, this book embraces a humanistic approach to treatment, addressing multicultural and multilinguistic considerations and social model interventions. The text encompasses a full continuum of cognitive-language disorder management-from everyday practicalities, assessment, and treatment to disorder-specific cases with evidence-based data. Additions to the 5th edition include chapters on pragmatics and discourse, telepractice, digital and electronic advances, funding and reimbursement, and comprehension, syntax, and linguistic based disorders. Key Features: A new chapter on neuroanatomical basics features exquisite illustrations An in-depth look at neurogenic communication disorders from Mayo Clinic provides firsthand insights on treating patients in an acute care hospital setting Discussion and test questions, case studies, and clinical pearls offer invaluable didactic guidance A chapter on expanded traumatic brain injury covers blast injuries and multisystem injuries This is the most comprehensive yet concise resource on aphasia and related disorders available today. New legions of speech language pathology students, residents, course directors, and practitioners will discover a remarkable guide on the treatment of communication disorders.
