The Essential Therapy Guide to Cancer, Hematologic Disorders, and Supportive Care--Updated with the Latest Treatment Regimens
More than 500 treatment regimens
"Hematology-Oncology Therapy," Second Edition is an up-to-date, comprehensive therapy guide that delivers more than 500 treatment regimens in a succinct, uniform manner. The unique tabular design allows you to instantly locate and implement the proper treatment regimen. Supported by the latest practice guidelines, peer-reviewed literature, and the opinion of experts, "Hematology-Oncology Therapy" integrates extensive information that is critical to both office- and hospital-based practice of hematology and oncology.
Hematology-Oncology Therapy is divided into three sections:
Provides detailed information about the administration, supportive care, toxicity, dose modification, monitoring, and efficacy of commonly used and recently approved chemotherapeutic regimens, drugs, and biological agents
Supportive Care, Drug Preparation, Complications, and Screening:
Consists of topics commonly encountered in clinical hematology-oncology practice, such as chemotherapy-induced nausea, oncologic emergencies, radiation complications, cancer pain management, cancer screening, and much more
Selected Hematologic Diseases:
Delivers an authoritative guide to therapy for the principal diseases in consultative hematology
This edition of "Hematology-Oncology Therapy" is enriched by the updating of all chapters as well as the addition of several new chapters; the new "Expert Opinion," which provides recommendations and guidance from experts on the use of treatment regimens; and inclusion of the latest regimens.
The most trusted, all-in-one guide to fetal brain imagingnow in full color. Edited and written by recognized experts, this acclaimed reference is a highly clinical text and visual atlas. It facilitates a thorough comprehension of the normal and abnormal fetal central nervous systemand helps you apply one of the most important advances in modern perinatology: the early detection of central nervous system anomalies. Here, you will find the full spectrum of prenatal sonography tools and insights, from using ultrasound and MRI to diagnose the fetal face, eye, and brain, to the neurobehavioral development of the fetal brain. Featuring a new full-color presentation and an enhanced, reader-friendly design, the third edition of this unmatched guide is completely refreshed to mirror the significant advances made in imaging resolution and three-dimensional Doppler technology. In addition, the book reflects the growing interest in imaging the fetal nervous system as it pertains to the fetal brain.
New full-color design and additional figures, tables, and graphs
New chapter on ventriculomegaly examines the most common presenting sonographic sign of brain pathology
New chapters on the evaluation of the fetal cortex and posterior fossa shed light on diagnostically problematic areas of the fetal brain
New chapters highlighting intrauterine insults, intrauterine infections, and metabolic disorders demonstrate the progress being made in areas that have become critical to fetal neuroscans
Greater emphasis on the use of high frequency and deep penetrating ultrasound transducer probes clearly explain how they can yield high-resolution pictures of the fetal brain and spine
Latest perspectives on dissemination of 3D ultrasound techniques and magnetic resource imaging are interwoven into individual chapters to encourage their adoption in daily clinical practice
More detailed examination of imaging the fetal brain is based on leading-edge, peer-reviewed research from around the world
SI units are included throughout
Numerous new 2D and 3D ultrasound images and updated literature references contribute to the most current overview available of this dynamic specialty
Color Atlas & Synopsis of Echocardiography provides you with an encyclopedic, case-based overview of this essential imaging modality. Featuring more than 500 of state-of-the-art cardiac ultrasound images, this unmatched resource examines both the optimal use and limitations of echocardiography in a variety of clinical situations, with an emphasis on the very latest techniques. Unlike traditional echocardiography texts, this Atlas is focused on the role of echocardiography in patient diagnosis and management, as well as in reviewing the indications, contraindications, and interpretation of echocardiographic images. Authored by expert contributors, each topic begins with a clinical case presentation (patient story) and also includes evidence ratings from the combined ACC/AHA/ASE guidelines and full references.
Topics include: Echocardiographic methods used in everyday practice for the diagnosis and management of cardiac patients, from Transthoracic, Transesophageal and Stress Echocardiography to Hand-Carried Ultrasound (HCU) The role of echocardiography in the diagnosis and management of patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease The importance of echocardiography, including Doppler echo, as a method to assess patients with valvular heart disease Echocardiographic assessment of the patient with new onset dyspnea, known or suspected heart failure, and a range of cardiomyopathies The use of echo in pericardial disease Various diseases of the aorta The use of echocardiography in the patient with a stroke or TIA Echocardiographic evaluation of intracardiac masses The role of echocardiography in managing patients with atrial dysrhythmias The expanding role of echocardiography in guiding interventional procedures.
