This atlas employs the spaces concept of analysis, which helps radiologists directly visualize complex head and neck anatomy and pathology. With hundreds of high-quality illustrations, this book makes the difficult identification and localization of complex neck masses relatively simple. This book provides CT and MR examples for more than 200 different diseases of the suprahyoid and infrahyoid neck, as well as clear and concise information on the epidemiology, clinical findings, pathology, and treatment guidelines for each disease.
Highly Commended at the 2004 British Medical Awards Medical Book Competition! Neurology - made visible Every practitioner in modern medicine is confronted daily with neurologic symptoms, diagnoses, and clinical problems. Yet there is scarcely any other medical specialty that is so fraught with complexities and abstractions. This pocket atlas is designed to provide a better, easier-to-understand visual guide on what the reader needs to know about neurology. In a unique way, neurology is made visible in the truest sense of the word. Coverage includes: The basic principles of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology (structure of the CNS, peripheral nerves, stimulus transmission, nerve conduction velocity, etc.) Diagnostic methods and procedures (clinical examinations, electrophysiologic techniques, imaging studies, etc.). Neurologic disorders including their clinical manifestations, pathogenesis, and principles of treatment. These topics and more are covered in elaborately drawn, meticulously labeled illustrations. The effective concept of placing the illustrations opposite the descriptive text for a particular subject has created word-and-picture units that combine maximum teaching impact with an optimum density of information. Neurologic relationships can be grasped literally at a glance. This pocket atlas is intended for medical students, physicians, and other medical professionals (nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists) who could profit from a visual guide to neurology.
Der Krebsatlas entstand aus dem Versuch einer einheitlichen Darstellung der Krebsmortalität in der Bundesrepublik und in den Bundesländern, womit zwei Ziele verfolgt wurden: Einmal sollte eine Übersicht gewonnen werden, in welchen Gegenden der Bundesrepublik sich Unterschiede des Spektrums an Krebskrank heiten erkennen lassen und in welche Richtung sich eine epide miologische Forschung - bei den augenblicklich begrenzten Ressourcen - hinsichtlich der Umweltrisikoforschung vorrangig orientieren sollte. Daß für sinnvolle Analysen mit epidemiologischen Methoden ein direkter Bevölkerungsbezug und darüber hinaus eine sehr viel differenziertere Auswertung von deskriptiven Daten notwendig würden, war dabei von vornherein klar. Die Bemühungen um die kreisweise aufgeschlüsselten Daten, die seit 1975 von allen Statistischen Landesämtern angefordert wurden, ergaben jedoch ein so schlechtes Resultat (nur drei von elf Landesämtern sahen sich in der Lage, die Sterblichkeits-Urdaten auf Magnetband zur Verfügung zu stellen), daß zunächst die Analyse von Aggregatda ten nach ganzen Bundesländern vorgenommen wurde. Das zweite Ziel der Publikation dieses Resultates der Analyse soll daher sein, Hinweise auf die "Problemgebiete" zu geben, die sich bereits in den vorliegenden Karten andeuten. Damit sollte sowohl mehr Interesse als auch stärkere und vor allem verständnisvollere Unterstützung bei dem Vorhaben gewonnen werden, die mit viel Intensität und bundesweit vergleichbar erhobenen Daten für die Forschung nutzbar zu machen.

Color Atlas of Pulmonary Cytopathology is the only text to include, under one cover, up-to-date information on every aspect of Respiratory Cytopathology. The atlas includes techniques of bronchoscopy, brochoalveolar lavage, and fine needle aspiration biopsy, a detailed section on cytopreparatory techniques, liberal use of images on histomorphology to complement cytology, emphasis on diagnostic pitfalls, a detailed section on cytopathology of non-neoplastic conditions, and much more. Abundantly illustrated with over 1300 color images, the atlas presents not only the usual cytohistologic patterns of various disease entities, but also focuses on differential diagnostic problems and depicts the differentiating features.
This book presents a significant amount of structural, paleomagnetic and magnetic fabric data in the Central High Atlas (Morocco). The authors thoroughly described and analyzed the present-day structure of this intraplate chain through 22 of cross-sections, potential field data analysis and 3D reconstruction. In addition, the authors propose a palinspastic reconstruction of the structure of the basin at 100 Ma (i.e., post-extension and pre-compression) to finally evaluate its Mesozoic and Cenozoic geodynamic evolution. This books presents (1) a unique three-dimensional model at the chain scale, (2) an analysis of the ca. 100 Ma remagnetization, to perform palinspastic restorations of most representative structures, (3) as well as the interpretation of the magnetic fabrics in order to unravel the tectonic or deformation setting that the rocks underwent in different parts of the basin. This book is of interest to structural geologists in Northern Africa, the Mediterranean and Iberia, as well as to those interested in inverted intraplate basins and paleomagnetists from around the planet. Also, this book is intended to help students to understand better the geological evolution of the Atlas and therefore Morocco and surrounding areas.
Psoriasis is one of the most commonly encountered skin-diseases - yet its etiology is complex and approaches to diagnosis and treatment vary considerably. This illustrated atlas provides a comprehensive visual record of the different stages of the disease and the various ways in which it presents at different sites on the body.
The fourth edition of Atlas of the Human Brain presents the anatomy of the brain at macroscopic and microscopic levels, featuring different aspects of brain morphology and topography. This greatly enlarged new edition provides the most detailed and accurate delineations of brain structure available. It includes features which assist in the new fields of neuroscience – functional imaging, resting state imaging and tractography. Atlas of the Human Brain is an essential guide to those working with human brain imaging or attempting to relate their observations on experimental animals to humans. Totally new in this edition is the inclusion of Nissl plates with delineation of cortical areas (Brodmann’s areas), the first time that these areas have been presented in serial histological sections. The contents of the Atlas of the brain in MNI stereotaxic space has been extensively expanded from 143 pages, showing 69 levels through the hemisphere, to 314 pages representing 99 levels In addition to the fiber-stained (myelin) plates, we now provide fifty new (Nissl) plates covering cytoarchitecture. These are interdigitated within the existing myelin plates of the stereotaxic atlas All photographic plates now represent the complete hemisphere All photographs of the cell- and fiber-stained sections have been transformed to fit the MNI-space Major fiber tracts are identified in the fiber-stained sections In the Nissl plates cortical delineations (Brodmann’s areas) are provided for the first time The number of diagrams increased to 99. They were now generated from the 3D reconstruction of the hemisphere registered to the MNI- stereotaxic space. They can be used for immediate comparison between our atlas and experimental and clinical imaging results Parts of cortical areas are displayed at high magnification on the facing page of full page Nissl sections. Images selected highlight those areas which are thought to correspond with those published by von Economo and Koskinas (1925) A novel way of depicting cortical areal pattern is used: The cortical cytoarchitectonic ribbon is unfolded and presented linearly. This linear representation of the cortex enables the comparison of different interpretations of cortecal areas and allows mapping of activation sites Low magnification diagrams in the horizontal (axial) and sagittal planes are included, calculated from the 3D model of the atlas brain
