By Arjun Sahgal, Simon S. Lo, Lijun Ma, Jason P. Sheehan

The contemporary improvement of hypofractionated stereotactic radiation treatment (SRT), which demands one to 5 fractions of high-dose radiation to be administered utilizing particular apparatus, has ended in the necessity for schooling on perform directions.

Image-Guided Hypofractionated Stereotactic Radiosurgery: a pragmatic method of advisor therapy of mind and backbone Tumors deals complete, how-to suggestions on hypofractionated SRT for mind and backbone metastases, glioma, benign tumors, and different tumor forms. offering the state-of-the-art of the know-how and perform, this book:

  • Discusses the professionals and cons of hypofractionated SRT in comparison to single-fraction radiosurgery, delivering a deeper realizing of radiosurgery and radiobiology
  • Explains the toxicity and adversarial results of hypofractionated SRT, helping practitioners in speaking the dangers and merits of therapy and in acquiring their sufferers’ consent
  • Outlines the present criteria for secure perform, together with checklists for implementation

Comprised of chapters authored via well-recognized specialists within the radiation, oncology, and neurosurgery communities, Image-Guided Hypofractionated Stereotactic Radiosurgery: a pragmatic method of consultant remedy of mind and backbone Tumors gives you a degree of technological and medical element no longer on hand in magazine papers.

Imaging of orbital and visual pathway pathology

This can be one of many first books to accommodate imaging of pathology of the full visible process. it's divided into elements, normal and designated. within the normal half, crucial fundamentals of recent imaging equipment are mentioned, yet with much less emphasis at the actual historical past than in in basic terms neuro-/radiological textbooks.

Clinical Functional MRI: Presurgical Functional Neuroimaging (Medical Radiology Diagnostic Imaging)

This can be the 1st textbook on medical fMRI. it's dedicated to preoperative fMRI in sufferers with mind tumors and epilepsies, that are the main well-established medical functions. state of the art fMRI approaches are offered, with distinct attention of the physiological and methodological history, imaging and information processing, general and pathological findings, diagnostic percentages and barriers, and different similar strategies.

Brain Mapping: From Neural Basis of Cognition to Surgical Applications

The aim of this ebook is to make a hyperlink among primary examine within the box of cognitive neurosciences, which now advantages from a greater wisdom of the neural foundations of cerebral processing, and its scientific software, specifically in neurosurgery – itself capable of offer new insights into mind association.

Spine and spinal cord trauma: evidence-based management

Representing the collective efforts of a multinational, multidisciplinary panel of backbone and spinal twine trauma masters, this fantastically illustrated evidence-based textbook does greater than supply a number of cures -- it bargains distinctive entry to insights from famous backbone specialists and a considerate but functional evaluate of the main correct literature and scientific proof to be had within the box at the present time.

Therefore, typical photoacoustic images based on endogenous contrast depict either resolvable blood vessels, the aggregate signal from many nonresolvable blood vessels, or combinations of both, in a manner similar to ultrasound. Since oxy- and deoxyhemoglobin have different optical absorption spectra, illuminating tissue with a series of different laser wavelengths can help successfully measure photoacoustic signals of each. , 2011). , 2012a). 3 Ultrasound-stimulated microbubbles for inducing low-dose vascular effects MB + US Radiation SM SM SMPD2 SMPD1 Mi to per chon me dria abi lity l Ceramide Endoplasmic reticulum de novo synthesis of ceramide Ceramide UGT8 Galactosyl ceramide ?
