    Denton A. Cooley.
    Status: Not Checked OutLane Catalog Record
    Pioneering surgeon Dr. Denton Cooley performed his first human heart transplant in 1968 and astounded the world in 1969 when he was the first surgeon to successfully implant a totally artificial heart in a human being. Over the course of his career, Cooley and his associates have performed thousands of open heart operations and have been forerunners in implementing new surgical procedures. Of all his achievements, however, Cooley is most proud of the Texas Heart Institute, which he founded in 1962 with a mission to use education, research, and improved patient care to decrease the devastating effects of cardiovascular disease. In his new memoir, 100,000 Hearts, Cooley tells about his childhood in Houston and his experiences as a basketball scholarship recipient at the University of Texas. After medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and Johns Hopkins, Cooley served in the Army Medical Corps. While at Johns Hopkins, Cooley assisted in a groundbreaking operation to correct an infant's congenital heart defect, which inspired him to specialize in heart surgery. Cooley's detailed descriptions of what it was like to be in the operating room at crucial points in medical history offer a fascinating perspective on how far medical science has progressed in just a few decades. Dr. Denton Cooley and the Texas Heart Institute are responsible for much of that progress.

    The inaugural publication of the 7.0 Tesla MRI Brain Atlas: In-vivo Atlas with Cryomacrotome Correlation in 2010 provided readers with a spectacular source of ultra-high resolution images revealing a wealth of details of the brainstem and midbrain structures. This second edition contributes additional knowledge gained as a result of technologic advances and recent research. To facilitate identification and comparison of brain structures and anatomy, a detailed coordination matrix is featured in each image. Updated axial, sagittal, and coronal images are also included. This state-of-the-art and user-friendly reference will provide researchers and clinicians with important new perspectives.

    The introduction of techniques that permit visualization of the human nervous system is one of the foremost advances in neuroscience and brain-related research. Among the most recent significant developments in this respect are ultra-high field MRI and the image post-processing technique known as track density imaging (TDI). It is these techniques (including super-resolution TDI) which represent the two major components of 7.0 Tesla MRI ? Brain White Matter Atlas. This second edition of the atlas has been revised and updated to fully reflect current application of these technological advancements in order to visualize the nervous system and the brain with the finest resolution and sensitivity. Exquisitely detailed color images offer neuroscientists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons a superb resource that will be of value both for the purpose of research and for the treatment of common brain diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis.

    "This book is based upon cutting-edge research conducted in the authors lab (Cellular Bioengineering), which over the past decade has developed a number of sophisticated techniques to facilitate use of 3D cell based assays or biosensors. This book uses data from peer-reviewed publications to conclusively justify use of 3D cell cultures in cell-based biosensors (assays) for (HTS). The majority of assays performed in accelerated drug discovery processes are biochemical in nature, but there is a growing demand for live cell-based assays. Unlike biochemical ones, cellular assays are functional approximations of in vivo biological conditions and can provide more biologically relevant information"--Provided by publisher.

    Creating detailed three-dimensional shapes on the computer is hard. The standard tools for the task are complex and require long training and familiarization. As a result, 3D modeling is typically the domain of the professional artist and not the casual user. Professionals invest the time to master their tools, but such tools are usually restricted to low-level sculpting operations. High-level reasoning and geometric manipulation, of which computers are well capable, are not used to help the artist reach her goals more efficiently or creatively. In this dissertation, I propose techniques by which computers, endowed with a greater understanding of the structure of shapes, can both support the creative pursuits of professionals, as well as significantly ease the burden of 3D modeling for the casual user. To this end, I describe methods for generating "suggestions" during the 3D modeling process: component shapes that may be directly used to augment the currently-modeled shape, or to inspire directions for its further development. These suggestions are drawn from a large library of previously-modeled shapes. Also, I discuss the construction of an assembly-based modeling tool that enables casual users to rapidly construct shapes from suggested components, with minimal training. Experiments with both professional and casual users suggest that this approach successfully supports rapid, creative 3D modeling.

    This concise compendium of topics pertinent to modern anesthesiology practice will be useful as a rapid reference for busy anesthesiology clinical practitioners, anesthesiology residents, medical students and others in training. Nurse anesthetists, anesthesiology assistants, perioperative nurses, post-operative intensive care personnel, and other allied health professionals caring for patients before and after anesthetic administration. The contents are offered in both text format as well as applications for smart devices, to be readily at hand in any clinical situation in any clincal location. The editor has drawn from a wide spectrum of expert authors from multiple institutions to compile approximately 480 two-page chapters, in template formats for easy-to-retrieve information. The content is organized into sections on important topics in physiology, pertinent issues for major co-existing diseases/co-existing conditions, key information for important surgical procedures, and guidance for managing a variety of complications encountered in anesthetic practice. In addition, this book contains a drug section in a condensed, easily accessible format with current information about anesthetic drugs and adjuvants, chronic medications that patients may be taking the perioperative period, and medications used to treat complications encountered in the peri-anesthetic period. As anesthesiology care extending to encompass toe spectrum from early evaluatin and optimization/management of preprocedural risk factors. Through post-proceduraminimizeo mininize subsequents complications and/or re-admission, every practitioner can benefit from timely acess to a "one-stop" content source to support evidence-based anesthesiology care. A source that concisely presents the most important concepts on a topic in an accessible manner.
