Frontiers in European radiology by A. L Baert( )

14 editions published between 1982 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The quantitative analysis of blood flow within central and peripheral blood vessels has attracted more and more interest, for with the rapid developments in vascular surgery and the introduction of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, it is becom ing increasingly important to be able to measure regional blood flow in man. In clinical radiology, angiography has been used predominantly from the point of view of its morphological applications. However, theoretically angiography may also be regarded as a specific application of indicator-dilution measurements of blood flow. The indicator is contrast medium (CM), the changing concentration of which is re corded by cinematography or video-electronic systems at sites downstream from the point of injection. The curves of density thus obtained correspond to indicator-di lution curves. The blood flow can be calculated from the concentration-time curves ofCM in much the same way as it is estimated from other indicator-dilution curves. In our early work with clinical application of videodensitometric measurement of blood flow in the iliac artery, we found that this method did not offer as high a degree of accuracy as one would have expected from investigations by other authors. We saw that we needed to examine the following problems: 1. We had to investigate whether our conventional X-ray equipment and video densitometer could be viewed as a linear measuring system. To what extent do unavoidable nonlinear changes in the measuring signals influence the blood flow values? 2
Radiology of the pancreas by A. L Baert( )

19 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The diagnostic approach to the pancreas has been revolutionized by new cross-sectional radiological methods such as computed tomography and furtherprogress in ultrasonography. The potential and the limitations of these and other modalities for the diagnosis of pancreatic diseases are considered in this volume by a group of internationally recognized experts. Both common and rarer diseases are extensively illustrated. The latest technical developments in imaging modalities such as color duplex Doppler, volume CT scanning and MRI are thoroughly discussed. Furthermore, a basis for better understanding of the radiological features is provided by chapters on the embryology, histopathology and physiopathology of the pancreas. The state of the art information on pancreatic radiology presented here represents excellent source materialfor the continuing education of medical specialists in the field
Clinical aspects of AIDS and AIDS-related complex( Book )

4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the result of the HIV / AIDS symposium which was held in Brussels, Belgium, on October 17-19, 1985. The first cases of AIDS were described in mid-1981 in homosexual men and drug abusers where an unusual combination of opportunistic infections and neoplasms were observed. Early 1984, the European Parliament, alerted by the ever increasing number of cases reported in the United States and Europe, voted a resolution recommending an emergency Community program. This was followed by the creation of the EC Working Group AIDS made of physicians both from basic and clinical science. A number of meetings were held in the last two years in order to implement a coordinating action in the field of immunology, virology, epidemiology, and lastly clinical aspects
Clinical computer tomography, head and trunk by A. L Baert( Book )

Radiology of trauma by Martin Heller( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book summarizes the radiological tools available for diagnosing traumatized patients. One of the major benefits of the book is the logical chain between mechanics of trauma and the resulting injuries. It reviews widely accepted trauma classifications, explains relevant examination methods, and summarizes the typical trauma patterns that can be expected with each imaging modality. The authors give decision pathways based on their experience as well as on recent scientific results. The book thus builds a bridge between the disciplines cooperating in hospitals in the treatment of acutely injured patients
Clinical and radiological aspects of myopathies : CT scanning, EMG, radioisotopes by J. A. L Bulcke( Book )

7 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most puzzling and striking features of many of the genetically determined progressive neuromuscular diseases such as the spinal muscular atrophies and the muscular dystrophies is that muscular wasting and weak ness in these cases is curiously selective, at least in the early stages, pick ing out certain skeletal muscles and sparing others. The diagnosis of these conditions has largely depended in the past upon the recognition of specific patterns of involvement of individual muscles and muscle groups, taken along with information derived from the mode of inheritance within the in dividual family and the results of special investigations. The investigations of most value have proved to be serum enzyme studies, electromyography and related techniques, and muscle biopsy. The advent of CT scanning has, however, introduced a new dimension; as the authors of this interesting monograph have clearly demonstrated, it is now possible, using the whole body scanner, to define patterns of muscular atrophy in the limbs and trunk much more precisely than by any other method. Not only does this techni que demonstrate which muscles are involved, but the changes in relative density provide useful information about the severity of the process and about the progress of the disease if the studies are performed serially. This monograph is pleasantly written and most attractively illustrated

Pediatric uroradiology by R Fotter( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes in detail all aspects of pediatric uroradiology. While the book is written primarily from the point of view of the radiologist, it includes much important information for the pediatrician, pediatric surgeon, and urologist. It is specifically designed to aid the clinician in decisions on imaging management. The technique and current value of all imaging and interventional procedures are presented, and the diverse problems associated with the changing anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of the growing organism are explained. The whole spectrum of imaging features of agenesis, anomalies, dysplasia, parenchymal diseases, neoplastic diseases, stone disease, vascular hypertension, renal failure, renal transplantation and genitourinary trauma is covered. Individual chapters are devoted to vesicoureteric reflux, urinary tract infection, upper urinary tract dilatation, voiding dysfunction, and neurogenic bladder. Specific urological problems associated with imperforate anus and epispadia-exstrophy complex are discussed. Throughout, additional information is provided on operative options, postoperative complications, and clinical and radiological normal values.

Atlas of pathological computer tomography by A. L Baert( )

4 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was our aim to place at the disposal of radiologists within a short time an atlas of high-quality, valuable pictures of abdominal CT without We felt that, the image degradation inherent to slower scanning apparatus. notwithstanding rapid evolution in CT scanning apparatus and the resulting rapid advances in our clinical knowledge about the value, limitations and applications of this new diagnostic imaging modality, an effort should be made to realize an atlas of reference. From more than 7,000 patients studied with abdominal CT, we tried to assemble images with maximal anatomical detail, which implies the use of large window settings, being well aware that in daily routine practice basic CT methodology includes the use of different window settings for optimal information. It was, however, a conscious decision not to use comparative images with large and small window settings in order to stay within a reasonable total number of figures. Much emphasis has been placed upon the use of contrast enhancement by intravenous contrast media. This is based on the conviction that essen­ tially new and better morphological information about normal and pathological processes within the abdomen can be obtained because short exposure times now allow one to capture the rapidly changing aspect and degree of contrast enhancement of the lesions as a function of their vascu­ larity

Atlas of pathological computer tomography by L Jeanmart( )

4 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to provide the radiologist with information which is "as practical as possible" for the everyday use of computerized tomography (CT) in the field of cervical, thoracic, and musculoskeletal pathology. The approach is simple. For each region the following information is pre­ sented: (1) a general schematic introduction, summarizing the main indications for CT and its specific usefulness; (2) a series of pictures of normal structures with a precise and practical identification; and (3) a selection of pictures of pathological structures, with a description and a short comment, aimed at covering the largest possible field of CT indications and interests. This approach has been applied to the following areas: cervical pathology, with one section dealing with the larynx and hypopharynx; the thorax, specifi­ cally to pulmonary diseases, pleural and parietal pathology, and the mediasti­ num, with special sections dealing with tumours, the heart, and large vessels; the spine, which is of growing importance in clinical CT; and finally the pathol­ ogy of the musculoskeletal system in general, with special attention being paid to the developing field of orthopaedic CT measuring methods
Renal and adrenal tumors : pathology, radiology, ultrasonography, therapy, immunology by E Löhr( )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present volume constitutes an attempt to compile contem porary features of diagnosis and treatment of renal and adrenal tumors. A thorough survey of the field is ensured by the authors' considerable scientific experience. Tumors of the kidneys and the adrenal glands are being diagnosed and treated by physicians of different medical disciplines. For both types of tumor, the pathologic cellular substrate is of crucial importance in diagnosis and therapy. In recent years significant diagnostic advances have been made, ranging from angiography through ultrasonography and computer tomography to immunology. New impulses in oncologic therapy have occurred in surgery, radiation therapy, and tumor emboliza tion. A further important topic is renal tumors in infants. Such tumors involve special aspects of both diagnosis and therapy and also have a distinctive prognosis. We are indebted both to Springer-Verlag, who supported us in our intention to write this book, and to our colleagues, whose help is greatly appreciated. For the authors: E.
