With an incredible 2400 illustrations, and written by a multitude of international experts, this book provides a comprehensive overview of both the physics and the clinical applications of MRI, including practical guidelines for imaging. The authors define the importance of MRI in the diagnosis of several disease groups in comparison or combination with other methods. Chapters dealing with basic principles of MRI, MR spectroscopy (MRS), interventional MRI and functional MRI (fMRI) illustrate the broad range of applications for MRI. Both standard and cutting-edge applications of MRI are included. Material on molecular imaging and nanotechnology give glimpses into the future of the field.

This two-volume set is assembled following the 2008 International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications, ICCSA 2008, a premium int- national event held in Perugia, Italy, from June 30 to July 3, 2008. The collection of fully refereed high-quality original works accepted as theme papers for presentation at ICCSA 2008 are published in this LNCS proceedings set. This outstanding collection complements the volume of workshop papers, traditionally published by IEEE Computer Society. The continuous support of computational science researchers has helped ICCSA to become a ?rmly established forum in the area of scienti?c computing and the conference itself become a recurring scienti?c and professional meeting that cannot be given up. The computational science ?eld, based on fundamental disciplines such as mathematics, physics, and chemistry, is ?nding new computational approaches to foster the human progress in heterogeneous and fundamental areas such as aerospace and automotive industries, bioinformatics and nanotechnology studies, networks and grid computing, computational geometry and biometrics, computer education, virtual reality, and art. Due to the growing complexity of many ch- lenges in computational science, the use of sophisticated algorithms and eme- ing technologies is inevitable. Together, these far-reaching scienti?c areas help to shape this conference in the areas of state-of-the-art computational science research and applications, encompassing the facilitating theoretical foundations and the innovative applications of such results in other areas.

Logically organized with comprehensive coverage, this newly revised third edition prepares you to choose the right orthopedic tests, accurately assess any patient, and arrive at a clear diagnosis. Trusted for both its depth of coverage and its accessible, accurate information, it features gamuts, clinical pearls, and cross-reference tables for quick and easy reference. Now in brilliant full color, with all new photos of every test, it’s even more visually appealing, and illustrates common conditions and procedural tests more effectively than ever before. This edition offers a fresh look at testing for orthopedic conditions, with detailed text that explains the key moves of each test, its alternate names, and the appropriate reporting statement. Extensive cross-referencing ensures that you can easily find the right test for efficient and effective practice, and protocol charts guide you through the examination process step by step. Chapters are logically organized by region, and tests within each chapter are arranged alphabetically, so you can find the information you need in seconds! Each test begins with a brief discussion of basic anatomy, then moves into a description of the actual procedure and ends with next-step directives. Critical Thinking questions at the end of each chapter help you apply what you’ve learned to clinical practice. Orthopedic Gamuts provide summaries of key points in a concise list – numerous gamuts within each chapter help you master material quickly and easily. Clinical Pearls share the author’s knowledge gained through years of clinical experience, helping you avoid common misdiagnoses. Cross-reference tables offer at-a-glance guidance on which tests should be used to diagnose particular diseases, for maximum accuracy and efficiency in practice. Each chapter begins with an index of tests for easy reference, and axioms that remind you of elemental information, such as how painful certain maneuvers may be or the extent of some body parts’ range. Contains a chapter on malingering (non-organically-based complaints), helping you investigate and determine the root cause of complaint, whether due to injury, for psychological reasons, or an attempt to feign injury for various purposes, such as for improper receipt of worker’s compensation. Companion DVD contains video footage of Dr. Evans performing and explaining each assessment test in the book. Full-color photographs demonstrate how to perform 237 orthopedic tests! At the Viewbox feature contains high-quality radiographs that depict various pathologies, as well as musculature and other anatomy that can’t be shown photographically.
