    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.

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a versatile imaging tool that can be used to detect changes in brain hemodynamics that accompany neuronal activity. This ability to observe both anatomy and the structures that participate in specific functions is often referred to as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Echo planar imaging (EPI) is the most widely used data acquisition method for fMRI. Functional images are often distorted because EPI is highly sensitive to field inhomogeneities, eddy currents, and gradient delays. These distortions often lead to image misregistration, and this is an impediment to correctly interpreting functional studies, and to neurosurgical planning. Many methods have been developed to address this. However, none yields anatomical and functional images that may be directly overlaid onto each other with no post-processing. This dissertation demonstrates that automatic, inherent self co-registration is achieved when optimized flyback EPI with echo time shifting (ETS) is used for both functional and anatomical images. fMRI experiments validate the proposed method, and the result is high-quality functional and high-resolution anatomical images that are inherently self co-registered. EPI acquisitions are also prone to timing and phase errors that give rise to image ghosting. ETS is an effective ghost correction method in EPI. Although ETS corrects for ghosting in a robust, non-iterative, and automatic manner, it does so at the expense of increasing total scan time. This dissertation proposes a simple, yet effective scheme to increase the efficiency of ETS by acquiring partial echoes during the idle wait times present in ETS. Using the proposed technique, higher resolution images are acquired when total scan time is fixed. Alternately, shorter scan times are possible when the in-plane resolution is fixed. Equations that predict the expected improvement in resolution are derived and shown to be accurate through simulations and experiments. In vivo images obtained using conventional ETS and the proposed method show that the time savings obtained with the proposed method do not result in any visible degradation in image quality. Signal changes caused by cardiac pulsation and respiratory fluctuation are also a major confound in fMRI. These time-locked signal changes, also referred to as "physiological noise, " decrease the sensitivity of fMRI to neuronally-induced signal fluctuations. To date, no method exists that compensates for these detrimental effects in 3D fMRI acquisitions. This dissertation presents a novel algorithm that compensates for physiological noise in 3D echo-planar fMRI. The proposed method utilizes composite property mapping and efficient root-solving to estimate physiologically-induced signal fluctuations in 3D k-space data. These signal fluctuations are subsequently regressed from k-space data. Results show that the estimated signal fluctuations have significant power in the cardiac and respiratory frequency bands. Further, resting-state fMRI experiments show an increase in the number of activated voxels when the proposed compensation algorithm is employed. This is accompanied by an increase in the average z-score of activated voxels, and a more Gaussian distributed voxel time-course. In conclusion, this dissertation describes advances in data acquisition and post- processing in 3D fMRI that are easy to implement. Further, promising experimental results suggest the efficacy of all the proposed methods.

    The literature on the late effects of cancer treatment is widely scattered in different journals since all major organ systems are affected and management is based on a variety of medical and surgical treatments. The aim of ALERT Adverse Late Effects of Cancer Treatment is to offer a coherent multidisciplinary approach to the care of cancer survivors. The central paradigm is that cytotoxic multimodal therapy results in a perpetual cascade of events that affects each major organ system differently and is expressed continually over time. Essentially, radiation and chemotherapy are intense biologic modifiers that allow for cancer cure and cancer survivorship but accelerate senescence of normal tissues and increase the incidence of age-related diseases and second malignant tumors. Volume 1 of this two-volume work focuses on the general concepts and principles relevant to late effects and on the dynamic interplay of molecular, cytologic and histopathologic events that lead to altered physiologic and metabolic functions and their clinical manifestations. Chapters are also included on legal issues, economic aspects, nursing, psychological issues and quality of life.

    Cryo-Electron tomography (CET) is the only imaging technology capable of visualizing the 3D organization of intact bacterial whole cells at nanometer resolution in situ. However, quantitative image analysis of CET datasets is extremely challenging due to very low signal to noise ratio (well below 0dB), missing data and heterogeneity of biological structures. In this thesis, we present a probabilistic framework to align CET images in order to improve resolution and create structural models of different biological structures. The alignment problem of 2D and 3D CET images is cast as a Markov Random Field (MRF), where each node in the graph represents a landmark in the image. We connect pairs of nodes based on local spatial correlations and we find the "best'' correspondence between the two graphs. In this correspondence problem, the "best'' solution maximizes the probability score in the MRF. This probability is the product of singleton potentials that measure image similarity between nodes and the pairwise potentials that measure deformations between edges. Well-known approximate inference algorithms such as Loopy Belief Propagation (LBP) are used to obtain the "best'' solution. We present results in two specific applications: automatic alignment of tilt series using fiducial markers and subtomogram alignment. In the first case we present RAPTOR, which is being used in several labs to enable real high-throughput tomography. In the second case our approach is able to reach the contrast transfer function limit in low SNR samples from whole cells as well as revealing atomic resolution details invisible to the naked eye through nanogold labeling.

    The presence of oriented features in images often conveys important information about the scene or the objects contained; the analysis of oriented patterns is an important task in the general framework of image understanding. As in many other applications of computer vision, the general framework for the understanding of oriented features in images can be divided into low- and high-level analysis. In the context of the study of oriented features, low-level analysis includes the detection of oriented features in images; a measure of the local magnitude and orientation of oriented features over the entire region of analysis in the image is called the orientation field. High-level analysis relates to the discovery of patterns in the orientation field, usually by associating the structure perceived in the orientation field with a geometrical model. This book presents an analysis of several important methods for the detection of oriented features in images, and a discussion of the phase portrait method for high-level analysis of orientation fields. In order to illustrate the concepts developed throughout the book, an application is presented of the phase portrait method to computer-aided detection of architectural distortion in mammograms.

    Unlike normal tissues, solid tumors have a metabolic phenotype that favors energy-inefficient glycolysis rather than more efficient, but oxygen consuming, oxidative phosphorylation, even when oxygen levels are adequate. This metabolic shift towards glycolysis, discovered by Warburg in 1924, has been studied for more than 80 years, but the mechanism of the phenomena is still unclear due to lack of tools for in vivo investigation. Dynamic nuclear polarization in combination with the recent development of a dissolution process that retains the increased polarization into the liquid state opened new possibilities for the real-time investigation of in vivo metabolism using C13 magnetic resonance spectroscopy. In particular, hyperpolarized [1-13C]pyruvate, a substrate occupying a key nodal point in the glucose metabolic pathway, has been successfully demonstrated as a neoplasm biomarker via elevated lactate labeling in tumors. However, additional downstream products of pyruvate metabolism, such as that occur in mitochondria of brain tumor, have been veiled due to low signal-to-noise ratios. The first part of the thesis is on the quantitative assessment of mitochondrial function in normal rat brain and glioma by detecting 13C-bicarbonate following the bolus injection of [1-13C]pyruvate. The feasibility of quantitatively detecting 13C-bicarbonate in tumor-bearing rat brain is demonstrated for the first time. The optimized protocol for chemical shift imaging and high concentration of hyperpolarized [1-13C]pyruvate were used to improve measurements of lactate and bicarbonate in C6 glioma-transplanted rat brains. Moreover, the immediate response to dichloroacetate treatment, which upregulates pyruvate flux to acetyl-CoA, is also presented. It is demonstrated that the simultaneous detection of lactate and bicarbonate provides a tool for a more comprehensive analysis of glioma metabolism and the assessment of metabolic agents as anti-cancer drugs. In the second part of the thesis, further investigation on mitochondrial metabolism, including tricarboxylic acid cycle, is presented by acquiring single-time point chemical shift imaging data from rat brain in vivo after administration of highly concentrated [2-13C]pyruvate. A C13 surface coil optimized for rat brain was built to increase sensitivity of signal detection. [5-13C]glutamate, [1-13C]acetyl carnitine, and [1-13C]citrate were detected besides [2-13C]pyruvate and [2-13C]lactate, for the first time in brain. Change of the tricarboxylic acid cycle activity in brain was also investigated by infusing dichloroacetate. The increase of [5-13C]glutamate was detected primarily from brain, whereas [1-13C]acetyl carnitine was increased in peripheral tissues after the infusion of dichloroacetate. The third part focuses on dynamic measurements of hyperpolarized substrates to obtain exchange rates in addition to concentrations, and proposes the apparent conversion rate as a new metric to detect glioma by comparing the conversion rates in glioma, normal appearing brain, and basilar vasculature in female Sprague-Dawley rats with C6 glioma cells implanted. Whereas single-time point measurements give a snapshot image of tissue metabolism, the estimated apparent rate constant yielded a better differentiation between the tissue types than the lactate-to-pyruvate ratio, which has been the most common metric used to date. This study demonstrates the feasibility of quantitatively detecting C13-labeled bicarbonate and glutamate in vivo, permitting the assessment of dichloroacetate-modulate changes in pyruvate dehydrogenase flux in both normal rat brain and glioma. The simultaneous detection of both lactate dehydrogenase and pyruvate dehydrogenase activities will likely improve our ability to both assess and monitor metabolic therapies of brain and other cancers by providing non-invasive in vivo measures of glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation.

    Atlas of Esophagus and Stomach Pathology provides an image-based resource for those studying normal histology of the upper gastrointestinal tract, as well as the microscopic manifestations of developmental abnormalities, toxic insults, infectious diseases, inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, and neoplasia in the esophagus and stomach. Because modern gastrointestinal pathology practice centers on specimens obtained during endoscopic examination, the atlas focuses on biopsy pathology, providing real-world microscopic images and ancillary diagnostic studies for most commonly-encountered abnormalities and diseases affecting these two organs. The book is supplemented with endoscopic and special study images. Authored by nationally and internationally recognized pathologists, Atlas of Esophagus and Stomach Pathology is a valuable tool for both pathologists-in-training seeking to make new acquaintances, and practicing surgical pathologists in need of a quick visual reference in recalling old friends in the world of diagnostic gastrointestinal pathology.

    The number of surgical procedures performed on the brain, head, neck, and spine has increased markedly in recent decades. As a result, postoperative changes are being encountered more frequently on neuroradiological examinations and constitute an important part of the workflow. However, the imaging correlates of postsurgical changes can be unfamiliar to neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons and are sometimes difficult to interpret. This book is written by experts in the field and contains an abundance of high-quality images and concise descriptions, which should serve as a useful guide to postsurgical neuroradiology. It will familiarize the reader with the various types of surgical procedure, implanted hardware, and complications. Indeed, this work represents the first text dedicated to the realm of postoperative neuroimaging. Topics reviewed include imaging after facial cosmetic surgery; orbital and oculoplastic surgery; sinus surgery; scalp and cranial surgery; brain tumor treatment; psychosurgery, neurodegenerative surgery, and epilepsy surgery; skull base surgery including transsphenoidal pituitary resection; temporal bone surgery including various ossicular prostheses; orthognathic surgery; surgery of the neck including the types of dissection and flap reconstruction; CSF diversion procedures and devices; spine surgery; and vascular and endovascular neurosurgery.

    The field of nuclear medicine has evolved rapidly in recent years, and one very important aspect of this progress has been the introduction of hybrid imaging systems. PET-CT has already gained widespread acceptance in many clinical settings, especially within oncology, and now SPECT-CT promises to emulate its success. Useful applications of this new approach have been identified not only in oncology but also in endocrinology, cardiology, internal medicine, and other specialties. This atlas, which includes hundreds of high-quality images, is a user-friendly guide to the optimal use and interpretation of SPECT-CT. The full range of potential SPECT-CT applications in clinical routine is considered and assessed by acknowledged experts. The book is designed to serve as a reference text for both nuclear physicians and radiologists; it will also provide fundamental support for radiographers, technologists, and nuclear medicine and radiology residents. Following the editors' other atlases on PET-CT and non-FDG PET-CT, the Atlas of SPECT-CT completes a trilogy offering up-to-date information and guidance on the full spectrum of hybrid imaging.

    The use of ultrasound guidance to perform diagnostic and therapeutic injections is growing at a rapid rate, as is the evidence to support its use. Even with the increased popularity of ultrasound, there remains a lack of formal training or a standard reference book. Atlas of Ultrasound Guided Musculoskeletal Injections fills this void in the literature and will be useful to physiatrists, orthopedists, rheumatologists, pain medicine and sports medicine specialists alike. Broken down by anatomic structure and heavily illustrated, this book is both comprehensive and instructive. The Editors and their contributors break down the basics (both the fundamentals of ultrasound to needle visibility and the role of injections) and explore ultrasound-guided injection for structures in the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand, hip and groin, knee, ankle and foot, and spine. Using a clear, heavily illustrated format, this book describes the relevant clinical scenarios and indications for injection, the evidence to support ultrasound use, relevant local anatomy, injection methods, and pearls and safety considerations. It will be a valuable reference for trainees and experienced clinicians alike, for experienced sonographers or those just starting out.

    This book explains in detail the potential value of the hybrid modalities, SPECT-CT and PET-CT, in the imaging of cardiac innervation in a wide range of conditions and diseases, including ischemic heart disease, diabetes mellitus, heart failure, amyloidosis, heart transplantation, and ventricular arrhythmias. Imaging of the brain-heart axis in neurodegenerative disease and stress and of cardiotoxicity is also discussed. The roles of the various available tracers are fully considered, and individual chapters address radiopharmaceutical development under GMP, imaging physics, and kinetic modeling software. Highly relevant background information is included on the autonomic nervous system of the heart and its pathophysiology, and in addition future perspectives are discussed. Awareness of the importance of autonomic innervation of the heart for the optimal management of cardiac patients is growing, and there is an evident need for objective measurement techniques or imaging modalities. In this context, Autonomic Innervation of the Heart will be of wide interest to clinicians, researchers, and industry.

    "In "Avoiding Errors in Radiology", the authors provide 116 real-life examples of errors from both diagnostic and interventional radiology. In each case, the authors discuss in detail the context in which the errors were made, the resulting complications, and strategies for future prevention. With the cases organized by body region, the authors begin with the cranium and then move to cases of the breast, chest and abdomen, spinal column, musculoskeletal and vascular systems. This book offers the readers: - To inform themselves "without an audience" about possible errors that can happen to every radiologist - To analyze the possible causes of errors and wrong decisions in 116 case studies with over 940 illustrations and to transfer the strategies described to avoid errors into their own work - To limit errors and to deal with them more competently and confidently"--Provided by publisher.

    To date, diet programs and medical therapies for the treatment of obesity have had limited success. Bariatric surgery, however, provides a means of effective weight loss for many of those with morbid obesity. Most of these weight loss procedures are performed with a variety of techniques that continue to evolve. Each technique is associated with unique challenges and complications and it is important for the clinician to be knowledgeable about the endoscopic management of these patients.

    This book is a comprehensive and authoritative text on the subject of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR). Imaging experts from the most medically advanced areas of the world discuss the basic principles of this modality in detail while maintaining a focus on the needs of cardiovascular imagers who wish to learn more about this subject but do not have a strong background in physics. CMR is now considered a clinically important imaging modality for patients with a wide variety of cardiovascular diseases. Recent developments have influenced a wide variety of cardiovascular imaging applications, many of which are now routinely used in clinical practice in CMR laboratories around the world. That it is non-invasive and lacks ionizing radiation exposure make CMR uniquely important for patients whose clinical condition requires serial imaging follow-up. Basic Principles of Cardiovascular MRI: Physics and Imaging Techniques includes a wealth of CMR examples in the form of high-resolution still images. Each imaging technique is discussed in separate chapters that include the physics and clinical applications (with cardiovascular examples) of that particular technique. As such, this book will be essential for cardiovascular medicine specialists and trainees , cardiovascular physicists, and clinical cardiovascular imagers.

    The second edition of this book is intended as a definitive text on biliary tract and gallbladder cancers. Specifically, it will serve as a single-source reference on the current knowledge base for the multidisciplinary management of such cancers and thus covers epidemiological, surgical, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy approaches. Akey feature is the demonstration of the impact of cutting-edge technical knowledge on treatment; for example, interventional radiology techniques, novel surgical approaches, and image-guided radiation therapy are all extensively discussed. Diagnosis is also considered in detail, with coverage of novel serum biomarkers, pathologic staging, molecular profiling, and the full range of current and emerging imaging strategies. Further chapters are devoted to epidemiology, the role of growth factor pathways and signal transduction, and histopathology and molecular pathogenesis. Experienced practitioners in a range of specialties will find this amply illustrated book to be an invaluable source of information on the newest diagnostic and treatment techniques in biliary tract and gallbladder cancer, yet it is also sufficiently concise to offer an introduction to the field for students and community practitioners.

    MRI provides the best means of imaging the bone marrow directly and of non-invasively assessing its composition. Normal age-related bone marrow changes, alterations related to red marrow reconversion, and pathological bone marrow processes generally conform to certain patterns that reflect the underlying marrow changes and can be clearly recognized on MR images. In addition to conventional pulse sequences, advanced MRI techniques such as Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced MRI and Diffusion-Weighted Imaging depict marrow changes at the microvascular and cellular level respectively. This book provides radiologists with in-depth information on the MRI appearances of normal, abnormal and treated marrow following a structured, pattern-based approach. MRI findings for various diseases that affect the bone marrow, particularly those of a malignant nature, are presented in detail. MRI pattern recognition not only offers a systematic approach to image interpretation and diagnosis but also has prognostic implications with regard to some disease entities. Each chapter includes a wealth of high-quality images, together with Key Points summarizing the most important information. In addition to radiologists, practitioners with an interest in hematology and oncology will find this textbook-atlas to be a valuable resource for the latest, clinically relevant advances in bone marrow imaging.

    Quantitative ultrasound (QUS) of bone is a relatively recent research field. The research community is steadily growing, with interdisciplinary branches in acoustics, medical imaging, biomechanics, biomedical engineering, applied mathematics, bone biology and clinical sciences, resulting in significant achievements in new ultrasound technologies to measure bone, as well as models to elucidate the interaction and the propagation of ultrasonic wave in complex bone structures. Hundreds of articles published in specialists journals are accessible from the Web and from electronic libraries. However, no compilation and synthesis of the most recent and significant research exist. The only book on QUS of bone has been published in 1999 at a time when the propagation mechanisms of ultrasound in bone were still largely unknown and the technology was immature. The research community has now reached a critical size, special sessions are organized in major international meetings (e.g., at the World Congress of Biomechanics, the annual meetings of the Acoustical Society of America, International Bone Densitometry Workshop, etc...). Consequently, the time has come for a completely up to date, comprehensive review of the topic. The book will offer the most recent experimental results and theoretical concepts developed so far and is intended for researchers, graduate or undergraduate students, engineers, and clinicians who are involved in the field. The central part of the book covers the physics of ultrasound propagation in bone. Our goal is to give the reader an extensive view of the mathematical and numerical models as an aid to understand the QUS potential and the types of variables that can be determined by QUS in order to characterize bone strength. The propagation of sound in bone is still subject of intensive research. Different models have been proposed (for example, the Biot theory of poroelasticity and the theory of scattering have been used to describe wave.

    "Elastography is a noninvasive imaging technique that detects tumors based on their stiffness compared to normal tissue. It uses ultrasound technology and can be performed during an ultrasound examination of the breast. It can dramatically reduce the number of breast biopsies performed. This book introduces the techniques of breast elastography followed by a detailed description for each of the techniques, highlighting their pros and cons. This is followed by a section on how to perform each of the techniques. The third section discusses the methods of interpretation for each technique, and the final section presents cases studies highlighting the pros and cons of each technique and how to avoid pitfalls in interpretation. It is written to appeal to the beginner as well as the experienced user"--Provided by publisher.

    Cardiac computed tomography (CT) has become a highly accurate diagnostic modality that continues to attract increasing attention. This extensively illustrated book aims to assist the reader in integrating cardiac CT into daily clinical practice, while also reviewing its current technical status and applications. Clear guidance is provided on the performance and interpretation of imaging using the latest technology, which offers greater coverage, better spatial resolution, and faster imaging while also providing functional information about cardiac diseases. The specific features of scanners from all four main vendors, including those that have only recently become available, are presented. Among the wide range of applications and issues discussed are coronary calcium scoring, coronary artery bypass grafts, stents, and anomalies, cardiac valves and function, congenital and acquired heart disease, and radiation exposure. Upcoming clinical uses of cardiac CT, such as hybrid imaging, preparation and follow-up after valve replacement, electrophysiology applications, myocardial perfusion and fractional flow reserve assessment, and plaque imaging, are also explored.

    The availability and diffusion of high-performance technologies has strengthened the role of CT angiography and MR angiography as simple, reliable techniques for the characterization and treatment planning of the principal diseases of the cardiovascular system, an understanding of which has become essential for all radiologists. The aim of this book is to provide concise but thorough information and guidance on the main methods and examination techniques used when performing high-quality CT angiography and MR angiography studies in a broad range of clinical settings. The lucid text is supported by a large number of case studies and is rich in advice on image interpretation and practical suggestions for the evaluation and reporting of the examinations. Importantly, a central feature is detailed comparison of the advantages and limitations of the two techniques in various diseases and vascular regions; the book will therefore enable both trainee and expert radiologists to understand their indications and to select the most appropriate technique in different contexts.

    This updated manual is a practical and compact introductory text to CMR. It includes a didactic overview of the physics of magnetic resonance imaging, cross-referencing consistently to the clinical chapters and describing the relationship between an understanding of basic MRI physics and producing better images. Building on the first edition, the authors review the practicalities of CMR from referral to screening, set-up of the study and reporting, including numerous tips and tricks on how the reader can improve the quality of their images. The book outlines the most commonly acquired image components used in CMR and details how CMR is used in clinical practice. It covers the most common referrals for CMR imaging in a structured way with imaging protocols and case examples for each indication. Throughout the book, the authors have used graphs and tables to highlight important learning aspects. The emphasis of each chapter is on providing practical, hands-on information, making this book a key resource for all training and certifying for the use of CMR. Cardiovascular MR Manual, 2e is of use to all clinicians working in cardiology or imaging for developing a general understanding of the diagnostic information that can be obtained from CMR, the indications for referral, and the contraindications and limitations of the technique.

    Accurate control of the radio-frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is necessary to ensure patient safety and provide high-quality diagnostic capabilities. Precise control is however becoming increasingly difficult to achieve, given the recent trends toward high fields and transmitter array systems. At high fields, imaging is performed in a frequency regime where the wavelength is on the order of, or smaller than, the dimensions of the human body. This leads to prominent wave behavior, non-uniform field patterns, and increased power deposition. Multi-element transmitter array systems with independent phase and amplitude control of their elements support methods that can mitigate these problems. However, in turn, they demand high fidelity RF reproduction and may lead to undesired electromagnetic interactions between elements of the arrays and with interventional devices. Frequency-offset Cartesian feedback can be used to address all of these issues. In combination with the use of polyphase error amplifiers (to implement a low-IF control bandwidth), Cartesian feedback can be used with MRI power amplifiers and transmit coils to increase the fidelity of RF reproduction, without the in-bandwidth DC-offsets and quadrature mismatches that may lead to imaging artifacts such as bright spots and ghosting. In addition, the control system, which includes autotuning circuitry for stability and vector multipliers circuitry for feedback manipulation, can be used to tune the series output impedance of these amplifiers, thereby reducing the likelihood of interactions between elements of transmit array systems. Furthermore, a miniaturized variation of the control system (called Active Cable Trap) can be used on guidewires to suppress undesired currents elicited by coupling with the RF fields of the transmit coils. In an era of rapid progress in high field MRI for clinical applications, the frequency offset Cartesian feedback method and system thus promises to address many of the challenges faced by designers of multi-element transmitter array systems.

    With the rapid growth in the cost of imaging and political and market pressures to contain health care costs, physicians are being encouraged to order only appropriate radiologic exams and to rationalize their choices. The American College of Radiology (ACR) Appropriateness Criteria have emerged as a widely accepted standard by which the appropriate use of radiologic exams is judged. This book is designed to enable physicians and trainees to learn the ACR recommendations in a clinically relevant and intellectually stimulating way. More than 400 clinical scenarios are organized into ten modules based on organ systems. Each scenario is addressed by means of an interactive quiz in which the reader is invited to select the best option from a number of imaging modalities. Each choice is given a numerical rating of appropriateness, with accompanying comments when necessary. Correlative images of pathologies are included to enhance the reader's appreciation of the diagnostic power of the modality in question. This book is ideal as a tool both for self-study and for quantitative evaluation of students' knowledge.

    SPECT/CT cameras have considerably improved diagnostic accuracy in recent years. Such cameras allow direct correlation of anatomic and functional information, resulting in better localization and definition of scintigraphic findings. In addition to this anatomic referencing, CT coregistration provides superior quantification of radiotracer uptake based on the attenuation correction capabilities of CT. Useful applications of SPECT/CT have been identified not only in oncology but also in other specialties such as orthopedics and cardiology. This book covers the full spectrum of clinical applications of SPECT/CT in diagnosis and therapy planning of benign and malignant diseases. Opening chapters discuss the technology and physics of SPECT/CT and its use for dosimetry. The role of SPECT/CT in the imaging of a range of pathologic conditions is then addressed in detail. Applications covered include, among others, imaging of the thyroid, bone, and lungs, imaging of neuroendocrine tumors, cardiac scintigraphy, and sentinel node scintigraphy. Individual chapters are also devoted to therapy planning in selective internal radiation therapy of liver tumors and bremsstrahlung SPECT/CT. Readers will find this book to be an essential and up-to-date source of information on this invaluable hybrid imaging technique.

    Dynamic susceptibility-contrast perfusion-weighted imaging (DSC PWI) is a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique that measures the delivery of arterial blood to the tissue capillary bed using a contrast agent. DSC PWI can reveal important information in stroke patients by assessing hypoperfused brain tissue, while in tumor patients it is used to evaluate the tumor vasculature. For clinical applications, DSC PWI relies on both accurate and rapid image formation. Gradient-echo echo-planar imaging (EPI) is the most commonly used MRI pulse sequence for DSC PWI, mainly due to its fast image acquisition capability, a relatively high contrast-to-noise ratio, and its availability on most clinical MRI systems. However, quantification of perfusion parameters with gradient-echo EPI remains challenging. Gradient-echo EPI is most sensitive to larger vessels, including arteries and veins. These measurements do not provide specific information about true perfusion within the microvasculature, the site of oxygen and nutrient extraction to brain tissue. To acquire perfusion measurements that are more confined to the microvasculature, spin-echo EPI acquisition techniques have been proposed. Spin-echo EPI is most sensitive to smaller vessels, providing a clear advantage over gradient-echo EPI. Unfortunately, spin-echo EPI suffers from lower sensitivity to the contrast agent passage, and the determination of arterial contrast agent concentrations required for quantitative perfusion MRI remains an unsolved problem when using spin-echo EPI data. In the first part of this dissertation, a combined approach for simultaneous spin- and gradient-echo (SAGE) perfusion MRI is presented. The proposed imaging technique combines the advantages of higher overall sensitivity to contrast agent passage of gradient-echo EPI with superior microvascular selectivity of spin-echo EPI, resulting in complementary perfusion information. The combined method enabled improved detection of abnormal brain perfusion compared to conventionally processed DSC PWI data, as illustrated in cases of stroke and brain tumors. Specifically, reduced sensitivity to larger blood vessels of spin-echo data generated from SAGE perfusion MRI measurements improved the visibility of hypoperfused tissue. In the second part, the gradient-echo and spin-echo signal contributions to the proposed SAGE perfusion MRI acquisition technique are analyzed in detail. The development of an optimized pair of MRI excitation and refocusing pulses enhanced the contrast-to-noise ratio of the spin-echo signal. Moreover, augmented perfusion parameter estimation improved the accuracy of both gradient-echo and spin-echo signals to reduce perfusion quantification errors. In the last part, implications of contrast agent leakage from the brain vasculature are discussed. Considerable contrast agent extravasation, caused by blood-brain barrier leakage commonly observed in brain tumors and subacute strokes, results in additional quantification errors of brain perfusion parameters. To mitigate these errors, pharmacokinetic modeling of contrast agent distribution was applied to SAGE perfusion MRI data. Intravascular contrast agent concentrations could then be separated from extravascular concentrations, resulting in leakage-corrected perfusion data. Moreover, the applied pharmacokinetic modeling approach facilitated the extraction of permeability parameters. The combined evaluation of perfusion and permeability parameters, derived from SAGE perfusion MRI data, showed potential utility in brain tumor imaging with the goal of improving the diagnostic value of perfusion MRI in the assessment of brain tumor progression.

    Architectural distortion is an important and early sign of breast cancer, but because of its subtlety, it is a common cause of false-negative findings on screening mammograms. Screening mammograms obtained prior to the detection of cancer could contain subtle signs of early stages of breast cancer, in particular, architectural distortion. This book presents image processing and pattern recognition techniques to detect architectural distortion in prior mammograms of interval-cancer cases. The methods are based upon Gabor filters, phase portrait analysis, procedures for the analysis of the angular spread of power, fractal analysis, Laws' texture energy measures derived from geometrically transformed regions of interest (ROIs), and Haralick's texture features. With Gabor filters and phase-portrait analysis, 4,224 ROIs were automatically obtained from 106 prior mammograms of 56 interval-cancer cases, including 301 true-positive ROIs related to architectural distortion, and from 52 mammograms of 13 normal cases. For each ROI, the fractal dimension, the entropy of the angular spread of power, 10 Laws' texture energy measures, and Haralick's 14 texture features were computed. The areas under the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves obtained using the features selected by stepwise logistic regression and the leave-one-image-out method are 0.77 with the Bayesian classifier, 0.76 with Fisher linear discriminant analysis, and 0.79 with a neural network classifier. Free-response ROC analysis indicated sensitivities of 0.80 and 0.90 at 5.7 and 8.8 false positives (FPs) per image, respectively, with the Bayesian classifier and the leave-one-image-out method. The present study has demonstrated the ability to detect early signs of breast cancer 15 months ahead of the time of clinical diagnosis, on the average, for interval-cancer cases, with a sensitivity of 0.8 at 5.7 FP/image. The presented computer-aided detection techniques, dedicated to accurate detection and localization of architectural distortion, could lead to efficient detection of early and subtle signs of breast cancer at pre-mass-formation stages.

    The major progress in computer vision allows us to make extensive use of medical imaging data to provide us better diagnosis, treatment and predication of diseases. Computer vision can exploit texture, shape, contour and prior knowledge along with contextual information from image sequence and provide 3D and 4D information that helps with better human understanding. Many powerful tools have been available through image segmentation, machine learning, pattern classification, tracking, reconstruction to bring much needed quantitative information not easily available by trained human specialists. The aim of the book is for both medical imaging professionals to acquire and interpret the data, and computer vision professionals to provide enhanced medical information by using computer vision techniques. The final objective is to benefit the patients without adding to the already high medical costs.

    Content-based image retrieval (CBIR) is the process of retrieval of images from a database that are similar to a query image, using measures derived from the images themselves, rather than relying on accompanying text or annotation. To achieve CBIR, the contents of the images need to be characterized by quantitative features; the features of the query image are compared with the features of each image in the database and images having high similarity with respect to the query image are retrieved and displayed. CBIR of medical images is a useful tool and could provide radiologists with assistance in the form of a display of relevant past cases. One of the challenging aspects of CBIR is to extract features from the images to represent their visual, diagnostic, or application-specific information content. In this book, methods are presented for preprocessing, segmentation, landmarking, feature extraction, and indexing of mammograms for CBIR. The preprocessing steps include anisotropic diffusion and the Wiener filter to remove noise and perform image enhancement. Techniques are described for segmentation of the breast and fibroglandular disk, including maximum entropy, a moment-preserving method, and Otsu's method. Image processing techniques are described for automatic detection of the nipple and the edge of the pectoral muscle via analysis in the Radon domain. By using the nipple and the pectoral muscle as landmarks, mammograms are divided into their internal, external, upper, and lower parts for further analysis. Methods are presented for feature extraction using texture analysis, shape analysis, granulometric analysis, moments, and statistical measures.

    This book examines in detail the diagnostic impact of contrast-enhanced ultrasound in the evaluation of urinary tract pathology, paying particular attention to the diagnostic gain that may be expected in relation to other imaging techniques such as CT and MRI. The role of contrast-enhanced ultrasound is evaluated in a range of pathologies, including ischemia, trauma, inflammation, cystic lesions, and solid tumors, as well as in the imaging of anatomic variants. New applications, for example monitoring of kidney transplantation, assessment of urinary bladder lesions, and diagnosis of vesico-ureteric reflux, are also covered. The presented cases, drawn from the authors' personal clinical caseload, include images obtained using multimodality techniques, sometimes with 3D CT reconstruction. The authors' own experiences are compared with the most recent reports in the scientific literature.

    In 1994 the European Society of Urogenital Radiology (ESUR) set up a committee to consider the safety of contrast media used for diagnostic imaging. Subsequently the committee questioned ESUR members, reviewed the literature, proposed guidelines, and discussed these proposals with participants at the annual symposia of the society. The end result of this work was the successful first edition of this book, published in 2006, which was followed by an equally successful second edition in 2009. This third edition not only fully updates the previous edition, but also includes new chapters on complex topics such as use of contrast media in children and practical aspects of off-label contrast media use. The authorship includes members, past members, and non-members of the Contrast Media Safety Committee. Comprehensive consideration is given to the many different safety issues relating to iodine-based contrast media, gadolinium-based contrast media, microbubbles for ultrasound, and barium sulfate. The text includes chapters on both acute and delayed non-renal adverse reactions and on renal adverse reactions. All of the questions frequently raised in radiological practice are addressed. This book, presented in a handy, easy-to-use format, provides an invaluable, unique, and unparalleled source of information.

    This new volume of Methods in Cell Biology looks at methods for analyzing correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM). With CLEM, people try to combine the advantages of both worlds, i.e. the dynamics information obtained by light microscopy and the ultrastructure as provided by electron microscopy. This volume contains the latest techniques on correlative microscopy showing that combining two imaging modalities provides more than each technique alone. Most importantly it includes the essential protocols, including tips, tricks and images for you to repeat these exciting techniques in your own lab. With cutting-edge material, this comprehensive collection is intended to guide researchers for years to come.

    This beautifully illustrated book combines a detailed exposition of the anatomy and function of the cranial nerves with practical coverage of clinical concepts for the assessment and differential diagnosis of cranial nerve dysfunction. An introductory chapter provides a brief overview of cranial nerve anatomy and function, skull base anatomy, classification of pathologies, and imaging approaches. Each of the twelve chapters that follow is devoted to in-depth coverage of a different cranial nerve. These chapters open with detailed discussion of the various functions of each nerve and normal anatomy. The authors then describe common lesions and present a series of cases that are complemented by CT images and MRIs to illustrate disease entities that result in cranial nerve dysfunction.

    This book offers concise descriptions of cross-sectional imaging studies of the abdomen and pelvis, supplemented with over 1100 high-quality images and discussion of state-of-the-art techniques. It is based on the most common clinical cases encountered in daily practice and uses an algorithmic approach to help radiologists arrive first at a working differential diagnosis and then reach an accurate diagnosis based on imaging features, which incorporate clinical, laboratory, and other underlying contexts. The book is organized by anatomical organ of origin and each chapter provides a brief anatomical background of the organ under review; explores various cross-sectional imaging techniques and common pathologies; and presents practical algorithms based on frequently encountered imaging features. Special emphasis is placed on the role of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In addition to algorithmic coverage of many pathological entities in various abdominopelvic organs, unique topics are also examined, such as imaging of organ transplant (including kidney, liver and pancreas), evaluation of perianal fistula, and assessment of rectal carcinoma and prostate carcinoma by MRI. Cross-Sectional Imaging of the Abdomen and Pelvis: A Practical Algorithmic Approach is a unique and practical resource for radiologists, fellows, and residents.

    Interventional radiology is an indispensable and still expanding area of modern medicine that encompasses numerous diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Cross-sectional imaging modalities such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) have emerged as important techniques for non-vascular interventions, including percutaneous biopsy, drainage, ablation, and neurolysis. Various organs, diseases, and lesions can be approached in this way, permitting the treatment and management of tumors, fluid collections, and pain, the embolization of endoleaks, the provision of access to hollow organs, etc. Accordingly, interventional radiology is now an integral component of the interdisciplinary management of numerous disorders. The revised and significantly extended second edition of this volume covers a broad range of non-vascular interventions guided by CT or MR imaging. Indications, materials, techniques, and results are all carefully discussed. A particularly comprehensive section is devoted to interventional oncology as the most rapidly growing branch of interventional radiology. In addition, detailed information is provided that will assist in establishing and developing an interventional service. This richly illustrated book will be a most valuable source of information and guidance for all radiologists who deal with non-vascular procedures.

    This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the continuously evolving field of dual-energy CT (DECT). An introductory section presents information on the physical and technical background of DECT and considers nonspecific and specific software advantages. Clinical applications of DECT in the evaluation of retroperitoneal viscera are then addressed in detail with the help of high-quality illustrations. Particular attention is devoted to the most recent DECT study protocols, software, and applications in aortic, renal, pancreatic, and adrenal disease. A number of case studies are reported that elucidate the advantages of DECT, and the relevant literature is extensively discussed. The book closes by considering radiation dose and dose-saving measures. The simple and practical approach offered by this book will assist radiologists in the optimal routine use and interpretation of DECT in different retroperitoneal sites and radiology technologists in the choice of settings and parameters.

    Segmentation of anatomical structures in medical image data is an essential task in clinical practice. Dagmar Kainmueller introduces methods for accurate fully automatic segmentation of anatomical structures in 3D medical image data. The author's core methodological contribution is a novel deformation model that overcomes limitations of state-of-the-art Deformable Surface approaches, hence allowing for accurate segmentation of tip- and ridge-shaped features of anatomical structures. As for practical contributions, she proposes application-specific segmentation pipelines for a range of anatomical structures, together with thorough evaluations of segmentation accuracy on clinical image data. As compared to related work, these fully automatic pipelines allow for highly accurate segmentation of benchmark image data. Contents Deformable Meshes for Accurate Automatic Segmentation Omnidirectional Displacements for Deformable Surfaces (ODDS) Coupled Deformable Surfaces for Multi-object Segmentation From Surface Mesh Deformations to Volume Deformations Segmentation of Anatomical Structures in Medical Image Data Target Groups Academics and practitioners in the fields of computer science, medical imaging, and automatic segmentation. The Author Dagmar Kainmueller works as a research scientist at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden, Germany, with a focus on bio image analysis.

    Defining organs at risk is a crucial task for radiation oncologists when aiming to optimize the benefit of radiation therapy, with delivery of the maximum dose to the tumor volume while sparing healthy tissues. This book will prove an invaluable guide to the delineation of organs at risk of toxicity in patients undergoing radiotherapy. The first and second sections address the anatomy of organs at risk, discuss the pathophysiology of radiation-induced damage, and present dose constraints and methods for target volume delineation. The third section is devoted to the radiological anatomy of organs at risk as seen on typical radiotherapy planning CT scans, with a view to assisting the radiation oncologist to recognize and delineate these organs for each anatomical region head and neck, mediastinum, abdomen, and pelvis. The book is intended both for young radiation oncologists still in training and for their senior colleagues wishing to reduce intra-institutional variations in practice and thereby to standardize the definition of clinical target volumes.

    Using hybrid x-ray/MR (XMR) systems for image guidance during interventional procedures can enhance the diagnosis and treatment of neurologic, oncologic, cardiovascular, and other disorders. XMR suites have become more available, with various vendors offering dual-modality solutions. These systems combine the three-dimensional imaging capabilities and excellent soft tissue contrast provided by MR with the high spatial/temporal resolution and accurate device tracking provided by x-ray. To eliminate system compatibility concerns, the suites typically have long travel distances between MR and x-ray components. As a result, switching between modalities requires shuttling the patient several meters from one system to the other. Because patients typically have critically placed monitoring systems and intravenous lines for drug delivery and anesthesia, the cumbersome shuttling process impedes repeated switching between the modalities. To circumvent the hurdles associated with alternating between modalities, we proposed a close proximity hybrid system design in which a c-arm fluoroscopy unit is placed immediately adjacent to a closed bore MR system with a minimum distance of 1.2 meters between the x-ray and MR imaging field of views. Placing the x-ray system so close to the MR bore requires an x-ray tube capable of operating in a relatively strong MR fringe field environment. Existing rotating anode x-ray tube designs fail within MR fringe field environments because the magnetic fields alter the electron trajectories in the x-ray tube and act as a brake on the induction motor, reducing the rotation speed of the anode. In my work, I have developed (1) techniques to correct for the altered electron trajectories and (2) a novel motor design that eliminates the reduced rotation speed of the anode. Altering electron trajectories between the cathode and anode affects the location, size, and shape of the x-ray tube focal spot on the anode. I proposed a combination of approaches to control the trajectories. First, I derived an active magnetic shielding design using constrained optimization techniques that minimizes power consumption and heat deposition in the external deflection coils. I then adapted my shielding design to include rare earth permanent magnets, to further reduce the power and size requirements of the coils. Finally, I designed a split-focusing cup that controls the electron trajectories via electrostatic mechanisms, providing an alternative that is more space efficient and MR-compatible. High rotation speed of the anode is needed for sufficient instantaneous heat loading on the target area, to achieve the needed x-ray tube output. There is currently no available motor design to rotate the anode in the expected magnetic environment. To solve this problem, I designed a new motor that operates efficiently within the fringe field. The design is analogous to a modified three-pole brushed DC motor, with the radial component of the MR fringe field replacing the permanent magnet stator field used in conventional brushed DC motors. The motor support bearings provide rotating electrical contacts, while feedback signals from a position sensor control electrical commutation. A vacuum compatible prototype of the proposed motor design was assembled, and its performance was evaluated at various field strengths and orientations. Combining the control mechanisms for the electron trajectories with the new motor design yields a robust x-ray tube capable of operating in fringe fields with magnitudes on the order of 0.1 to 0.2 T.

    Understanding human brain function is one of the most important endeavors in modern science. There is growing evidence that cognitive functions are executed by large-scale networks, comprising multiple interacting anatomically-connected brain areas. Although considerable progress has been made in understanding which specific brain areas are involved in particular cognitive functions, very little is known about the integrative functioning of large-scale brain networks. This is due in part to the lack of methods to pursue this line of research. This dissertation describes computational methods for detecting and characterizing large-scale human brain networks, combining data from task-free functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and structural diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), two complementary brain imaging modalities. Application of our methods to task-free fMRI and DTI data obtained from a wide range of subject populations provided new insights into how large-scale human brain networks develop, mature, and get disrupted in psychiatric and neurological disorders. More generally, this work demonstrates the power of our multimodal network-analytic approach to obtain a system-level understanding of brain function across the human lifespan.

    Due to the sequential nature of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data acquisition, correction of image artifacts originating from involuntary patient motion is essential for reliable diagnostic quality. Especially during MRI scans of certain patient populations such as children, elderly or patients with certain medical conditions (e.g. stroke, Parkinson's), motion correction methods must be incorporated into the MR imaging protocol for adequate image quality. With increased demands for higher resolution or time-resolved examinations (e.g. functional MRI), examination times also increase and even willing patients might have trouble staying still during the course of the examination. The first part of this thesis provides a method for retrospective correction of head motion artifacts using a multi-shot spiral-in \& out readout and parallel-imaging based iterative image reconstruction. The spiral-in part provided a low resolution image that was used for measurement of head motion. Due to rotational motion, locally undersampled areas appear in MR acquisition space (i.e., k-space), which violate the Nyquist theorem and cause artifacts even after motion correction. These artifacts were addressed through the data redundancy provided by multiple receiver channels that is present in modern receiver coils and an iterative conjugate-gradient based reconstruction. This method was then applied to diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) with multi-shot readout. Since DTI uses directional gradients to encode diffusion, rotational motion causes the image contrast to change, and it becomes incorrect to combine data with varying diffusion encodings on them. To address this issue, a non-linear conjugate gradient based reconstruction is presented and it is shown that this method provided more accurate description of white matter pathways compared to traditional methods. In the second part of this thesis, a prospective motion correction system using an optical tracking device is presented. Such systems are preferable compared to retrospective navigator-based methods due to various reasons, such as ability to perform motion correction independent of the MR data acquisition and immunity to spin history effects. The system proposed used a single camera mounted on the head coil and a self-encoded checkerboard marker mounted on the patient's forehead. Results on structural and diffusion imaging revealed that prospective motion correction outperforms retrospective navigator-based schemes. In the last part of the thesis, entropy-based retrospective autofocusing was used in combination with motion data obtained from prospective tracking to remove residual motion artifacts in the images. This method was especially useful for removing errors caused by inaccurate cross-calibration between the scanner and camera frame-of-references. It was also shown that prospective tracking can be the enabling technology for autofocusing in 3D acquisitions.

    The available textbooks on endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) typically focus on technique and interpretation of commonly observed images and scenarios and are aimed primarily at trainees. However, independent practitioners of EUS are often challenged by unusual cases which they are expected to handle competently despite the absence of authoritative guidance. The Diagnostic Endosonography aims to fill this gap by presenting carefully selected cases that will expand the practitioner's knowledge base and cover important clinical challenges. The case material is organized principally according to anatomic site. Approximately 170 case reports are included, each of which is accompanied by an average of three to five high-quality EUS images; in addition, CT and PET scans are shown when appropriate. For each case, the case description is followed by helpful 'teaching points' as well as up-to-date literature references and suggestions for future research.

    This book introduces the diagnosis of Emerging Infectious Diseases (EIDs), including newly emerging infectious diseases and also infectious diseases that show resistance to present treatments. Radiographic examinations are of great value in EIDs diagnosis, differential diagnosis, treatment efficacy assessment and prognosis evaluation. This book covers severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), human avian influenza (H5N1, H7N9), influenza A (H1N1), hand-foot-mouth disease, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), viral hepatitis, pulmonary tuberculosis. All seven of these EIDs are associated with high incidence and mortality. This book details the imaging techniques, radiological appearance and characteristics of EIDs, and diagnosis and differential diagnosis of EID-related complications. Considering the unique and in some cases only partially understood nature of EIDs, appropriate space is provided in this book for the detailed explanation of the etiology, epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical symptoms and signs, laboratory tests, clinical diagnosis and differential diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and prognosis of EIDs. As such, it will be a valuable resource for improving the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of EIDs.

    The biology, behavior and management of diffuse low-grade gliomas (DLGG) in adults have been matters of controversy for many decades. However, recent technical and conceptual advances in genetics, imaging and treatments have paved the way towards individualized management. In addition, advancing knowledge of brain processing means that it is possible to take into consideration the interaction between the disease (low-grade glioma) and the host (the brain) and thus to modulate the therapeutic strategies with the goal to increase the median survival as well as to improve the quality of life. Diffuse Low-Grade Gliomas in Adults: Natural History, Interaction with the Brain, and New Individualized Therapeutic Strategies presents the latest research pertaining to the diagnosis, therapy and management of diffuse low-grade gliomas (DLGG) in adults, with a particular focus on the path towards individualized therapy for this kind of tumor. Recent research on the natural history of DLGGs and their interaction with the brain has led to new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies which increase survival and quality of life of the patient, and these methods are described in this book. This book uniquely focuses on addressing diffuse low-grade gliomas in adults and is a valuable resource for medical oncologists, neuro-oncologists and neurologists.

    Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) is a variation of diffusion-weighed imaging. Particularly in the neurosciences, this technique has gained tremendous momentum in the past decade, both from a technical point of view as well as in its applications. DTI is mainly used in neurological diagnosis and psychiatric and neurologic research, e.g. in order to locate brain tumors and depict their invasivity. DTI offers a unique in-vivo insight into the three-dimensional structure of the human central nervous system. While easy interpretation and evaluation is often hampered by the complexity of both the technique and neuroanatomy, this atlas helps you recognize every one of the important structures rapidly and unambiguously.In the introduction, this atlas provides a concise outline of the evolution of diffusion imaging and describes its potential applications. In the core part of the atlas, the neuroanatomically important structures are clearly labeled both on DTI-derived color maps and conventional MRI. Complex fiber architecture is illustrated schematically and described concisely in textboxes directly on the relevant page. In the final part of the atlas, a straightforward, step-by-step approach for the three-dimensional reconstruction of the most prominent fiber structures is given, and potential pitfalls are indicated.The atlas aims at neuroscientists, neuroanatomists, neurologists, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, physicists, and computer scientists. For advanced users, the atlas may serve as a reference work, while students and scientists are thoroughly introduced into DTI.

    Fundus images of the retina are color images of the eye taken by specially designed digital cameras. Ophthalmologists rely on fundus images to diagnose various diseases that affect the eye, such as diabetic retinopathy and retinopathy of prematurity. A crucial preliminary step in the analysis of retinal images is the identification and localization of important anatomical structures, such as the optic nerve head (ONH), the macula, and the major vascular arcades. Identification of the ONH is an important initial step in the detection and analysis of the anatomical structures and pathological features in the retina. Different types of retinal pathology may be detected and analyzed via the application of appropriately designed techniques of digital image processing and pattern recognition. Computer-aided analysis of retinal images has the potential to facilitate quantitative and objective analysis of retinal lesions and abnormalities. Accurate identification and localization of retinal features and lesions could contribute to improved diagnosis, treatment, and management of retinopathy.

    Making a good diagnostic image is only the beginning; keeping it good and diagnostically sound is a much more difficult proposition, one that is often neglected or forgotten by clinical practitioners. With anything digital, the assumption of persistent original quality opens a Pandora's box of medical fiascos. Poorly selected image interpolation, thoughtlessly used compression, confused image enhancement options and the like can transform a good original into a useless clutter of pixels. This book is dedicated to learning better options.

    Digital retinal imaging performed by primary care providers and nurses, followed by remote image interpretation (teleretinal imaging), is rapidly acquiring a crucial role in many parts of the world as it permits the detection of major diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma, in patients who would otherwise be beyond the reach of a trained ophthalmologist. In this book, experts from around the world describe how digital teleretinal screening can be set up and optimally utilized. Technical issues are discussed, and the appropriate use of screening for different diseases and in different age groups is explained. The major part of the book draws upon the clinical experience of leading practitioners in a wide range of teleretinal applications. The result is a comprehensive source of high-quality information for clinicians and other health professionals who are involved in eye care delivery, so that they can assess how teleretinal screening might be applied to their working practice.

    Spinal cord imaging has significantly benefited from new MR imaging methods such as cardiac-gated diffusion-weighted imaging, diffusion tensor imaging with fiber tracking, and time-resolved MR angiography. Recent decades have also witnessed fundamental progress in understanding of the pathophysiology of vascular, metabolic, and inflammatory spinal cord diseases. Furthermore, neurosurgical procedures and endovascular treatments of spinal cord diseases have been improved and perfected to avoid severe neurological sequelae. This textbook provides an interdisciplinary overview of the new imaging modalities, identifies clues for MR imaging diagnosis and differential diagnosis, and describes the anatomical background required to understand spinal cord diseases. Important neurological symptoms are highlighted, and modern treatment options for different diseases are fully explained and discussed. High-quality illustrations, including numerous images, are provided for all important spinal cord diseases, documenting relevant anatomical details, special MR imaging methods, differential diagnoses, and possible treatment procedures.

    This book covers the full range of current applications of Doppler sonography in infancy and childhood, describing the variety of potential findings with the aid of a wealth of images. After an introductory chapter on the physical and technical basis of Doppler sonography, applications of cerebral Doppler sonography in infancy and of transcranial Doppler sonography in childhood are addressed, with numerous examples of imaging appearances. The major part of the book is devoted to Doppler sonography of the brain, face and neck and of the abdomen, covering normal abdominal vessels, liver, spleen, pancreas, and mesenteric and renal circulation. Imaging of the ovaries and testes is also presented, encompassing the differential diagnosis of acute scrotum and other space-occupying lesions of the testis. The book closes by considering Doppler sonography of soft tissue and vascular malformations, and the influence of congenital heart malformations on flow parameters in peripheral arteries. Doppler Sonography in Infancy and Childhood will be an invaluable reference for pediatricians, neonatologists, pediatric sonographers, and pediatric and general radiologists.

    This book focuses on the rapidly developing and promising novel applications of Dual Energy CT (DECT) in cardiovascular medicine. Although developed many years ago, DECT represents the newest significant advancement in the field of computed tomography, the clinical utility of which has recently expanded as many new applications have been developed. In the field of cardiovascular medicine, DECT has been applied for purposes such as the evaluation of myocardial ischemia, myocardial viability and atherosclerotic plaque characterization. As the first book of its kind, Dual-Energy CT in Cardiovascular Imaging contains practical and clinically relevant information on the protocols used that provide precise quantification of coronary artery stenosis using either different monochromatic levels or material decomposition, reduction of beam hardening artifacts in perfusion studies and optimizing endovenous contrast, among others. It is therefore a valuable read for residents, fellows and practicing clinicians in cardiac imaging and cardiology.

    The utilization of x-ray computed tomography (CT) has increased dramatically in recent decades. While extremely useful, a major drawback of CT scans is their use of ionizing radiation. Today, one quarter of the radiation dose received by the U.S. population can be attributed to CT scans. We present the use of a dynamic attenuator which is capable of personalizing the radiation usage in the scan. This attenuator is inspired by a stationary-source, inverse geometry CT scanner, which is an architecture with several advantages but which is also very complex. The dynamic attenuator consists of a series of movable wedges which together produce a time-varying, piecewise-linear thickness profile. In simulations, this attenuator reduces dose by 30% in nontargeted scans and 50% in targeted scans without increasing peak noise. On many datasets, this attenuator can also achieve order-of-magnitude dynamic range reductions, which may aid in the adoption of photon-counting detectors, a separate technology which may provide additional dose reductions. We show that most of these dose reduction benefits can be achieved using a real-time control algorithm to position the wedges dynamically during the scan. Additionally, we have developed a framework for optimizing the control of a broad range of dynamic attenuators. A prototype system suggests that the level of artifacts produced by the wedge transitions is within the range of tens of Hounsfield units, although further refinements are expected to reduce artifacts. Based on these positive results, we believe that this dynamic, piecewise-linear attenuator is a practical and effective option for CT.

    T1-weighted dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) breast MRI has shown high sensitivity in detecting tumors, but has suffered from low specificity. Accuracy of tumor detection and characterization is enhanced by high temporal and spatial resolution, high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), reliable fat suppression, and reduction of flow artifacts. This thesis presents imaging techniques for improving DCE breast MRI in terms of imaging speed and image quality. It first demonstrates that slab-phase modulation of the two breast slabs improves parallel imaging quality in terms of SNR and aliasing artifacts. Second, it presents temporal acceleration scheme by using parallel imaging to achieve high temporal resolution. Thorough patient study results are also included. Third, it shows that fat suppression can be improved by applying independent shimming to each breast through in vivo experiments. Finally, it demonstrates that partial saturation can eliminate flow artifacts efficiently in RF-spoiled gradient-echo sequences. This technique would be helpful to quantification of kinetic parameters from DCE-MRI.

    Echocardiography has become an invaluable tool in intensive care medicine because of its ease of use and instantaneous provision of precise information on cardiovascular functional anatomy at the bedside. This book contains all the information that readers will require in order to perform echocardiography and lung ultrasound, and to interpret the findings correctly, permitting optimal guidance of the hemodynamic management of unstable patients. Furthermore, lung ultrasound is dealt with for both diagnosis and treatment of respiratory failure requiring mechanical ventilation. After an introductory chapter on the essential physics of ultrasonography, standard echocardiographic examination via both the transthoracic and the transesophageal approach is described. In the third section, the functional anatomy of all normal and pathologic thoracic structures as observed on echocardiography is presented in detail. A wide range of basic and advanced applications of echocardiography in the emergency and intensive care setting are then described. A final supplementary section considers further applications of ultrasound in the intensive care unit, such as ultrasound-guided vein cannulation, Doppler renal evaluation, transcranial Doppler, and lung and pleural ultrasound. This superbly illustrated book has been specifically designed to meet the needs of all intensivists, emergency physicians, and anesthesiologists who intend to use ultrasound extensively to guide optimal management of the critically ill.

    Owing to the alterations in visceral anatomy, many endoscopists, and especially trainees, experience difficulties when performing endoscopic surveys or procedures in patients who have previously undergone surgery to the digestive tract. In this richly illustrated book, an expert in the field provides a detailed overview of endoscopic follow-up of gastrointestinal (esophageal, gastric, and colorectal) anastomosis. Both normal appearances and pathological conditions involving complications are fully covered. The methodology, timing, protocols, and role of diagnostic endoscopy are first discussed. Endoscopic treatments for the resolution of different clinical problems related to recurrences, stenoses, dehiscences, and fistulas are then evaluated step by step with the aid of high-quality images. Regardless of level of experience, endoscopists and gastroenterologists will find Endoscopic Follow-up of Digestive Anastomosis to be an invaluable source of information and aid to treatment in this important area, which too often receives insufficiently detailed attention.

    "As the understanding of human physiology has become more complete, the importance of preserving normal tissues has become increasingly clear in the field of surgery. This understanding gave birth to the concept of minimally invasive surgery that has conquered almost all surgical fields, including spine surgery. With recent advances and experience, minimally invasive spinal surgery (MISS) is gradually replacing conventional spine surgical procedures. The primary goal of MISS is to achieve outcomes comparable to those of open surgery while minimizing normal tissue damage and reducing recovery times. Advances in optics, radionavigation, and laser technology made MISS more accessible to surgeons and truly less invasive for the patient. Minimally invasive surgical techniques have touched the entire spinal column, from the cervical to the lumbosacral spine. The MISS spectrum ranges from simple disk surgeries to the most complicated spine surgeries, such as deformity correction. Of all MISS procedures, percutaneous endoscopic disk surgery has attracted the most attention from the global spine surgery community and has enjoyed phenomenal advances in sophistication in the past decade. The remainder of the chapter presents a historical account of percutaneous disk surgeries for the lumbar and cervical spine. "--Provided by publisher.

    This volume reviews the history of endoscopy to diagnose small bowel disorders, places other diagnostic modalities into perspective, and defines the role of capsule endoscopy and per overtube assisted and retrograde enteroscopy in disorders as disparate as gluten sensitive enteropathy, small bowel neoplasms, and inflammatory bowel disease. The book further details the nonoperative approach to NSAID strictures, foreign body retrieval (to include impacted capsule endoscopes), and the diagnosis and treatment of chronically bleeding angiodysplastic lesions. The text is also richly illustrated with over 150 images and includes online video segments. Written by experts in the field, Endoscopy in Small Bowel Disorders is a valuable resource for medical and surgical residents, gastroenterologists in training and practice, therapeutic endoscopists, and general and colorectal surgeons.

    The purpose of this book is to improve diagnostic yields of capsule endoscopy and double-balloon endoscopy, because those procedures can depict nonspecific findings that may not lead to a proper diagnosis. Another reason for the publication was recognition of the difficulty in distinguishing enteroscopic findings of ulcerative colitis from those of Crohn's disease. From a practical point of view, it is important to observe endoscopic pictures first, then to compare the images of other modalities, and finally to compare macroscopic pictures of resected specimens. For that reason, a large number of well-depicted examples of small intestinal lesions were assembled to clarify differences among small intestinal lesions that appear to exhibit similar findings and morphologies. Comparisons with radiographic findings comprise another important element in diagnosis. There are limitations in endoscopic observations of gross lesions of the small intestine, with its many convolutions. In Japan, many institutions still practice double-contrast imaging, which provides beautiful results. Because a single disorder may exhibit variations, this volume includes multiple depictions of the same disorders. Also included are lesions in active and inactive phases, as both appearances are highly likely to be encountered simultaneously in clinical practice. The number of illustrated findings therefore has been limited to strictly selected cases.

    Written by expert epilepsy clinicians from the Mayo Clinic, Epilepsy Case Studies: Pearls for Patient Care presents a wide variety of case histories drawn from real life experiences in people with seizures. Designed to stimulate the same deductive reasoning that is commonly used when seeing epilepsy patients in the clinic, this practical book presents the clinical scenario and then poses a range of stimulating questions to organize the reader's thoughts to address each case. Questions that revolve around each case include common ones such as "How does this test help us with the diagnosis" and "What is the precise relationship of the patient's seizures to their overall neurological condition". The most poignant questions include "How does this information help us to devise a treatment plan?" and "What do we know about the anticipated course and prognosis?" The questions raised in each section incorporate the clinical course and evaluation. Where possible, the discussion relies upon the latest medical evidence to support the responses and includes up-to-date techniques used for patients with and without seizure control. At the end of each case a few salient citations are referenced, as are a few of the more pertinent articles that the reader can reference to obtain an overview of the topic.

    "The objective of this book is to serve as a practical educational resource for clinical magnetic resonance imaging. The bulk of the text is organized along anatomic lines and discusses disease entities commonly encountered in clinical practice. The focus is illustrating and describing the MR appearances of the most commonly imaged disease entities, covering briefly in each area important points relative to imaging techniques then discussing in depth, the clinical MR interpretation. The breadth of clinical MRI is explored. For each subtopic within an anatomic region, clinical cases serve as the backbone for discussion, the most common pathologies affecting each anatomic region being illustrated. The final chapters discuss specifically contrast media and contrast enhanced MRA, two topics worthy of further description due to their present clinical importance. When relevant to diagnosis or essential for understanding, MR physics is discussed, however the reader is referred separately to Runge et al, The Physics of Clinical MR Taught Through Images 2nd Edition (New York: Thieme; 2009) for further elaboration. It is the goal that upon completing this text, the reader will have an appreciation for the complexity, utility, and versatility of MR in clinical imaging and will possess the knowledge essential for interpretation of basic clinical MR examinations"--Provided by publisher.

    "During the last two decades, new developments in functional MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) have made it possible to detect changes in the brain over time, as opposed to the "snapshot" produced by conventional MRI. Essentials of Functional MRI breaks down the technical challenges for physicians, researchers, and technologists who use functional MRI but may not be experts in the necessary math and physics. The author describes the theory and practical details of functional MRI (fMRI) methodology, including how to acquire and analyze images, and a wide range of examples demonstrate how fMRI has been used thus far. The author provides the essential information to study, understand, use, and teach the practical aspects of fMRI for those people who are most likely to extend its use into clinical practice"--Provided by publisher.

    Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive modality for neuroimaging that has been widely applied into various clinical and scientific studies. In many applications, one particular challenge for MRI is the scanning speed and efficiency. Three major novel fast neuroimaging techniques are presented in this work, including high-resolution 3D diffusion imaging (3D-SNAILS), an iterative reconstruction algorithm for high accelerating parallel imaging (PRUNO), and motion insensitive 3D non-contrast perfusion imaging (3D-PCASL-PROMO). 3D DWI and DTI provide attractive features such as isotropic resolution, high SNR and good tractography. However, 3D volumetric DWI/DTI scans suffer from long scan time and severe motion artifacts. In this project, a steady-state multi-shot pulse sequence is demonstrated to perform fast high resolution 3D diffusion imaging, in which 3D self-navigated interleaved rotating spirals (3D-SNAILS) are used as readout trajectories. This acquisition scheme has low sensitivity to motion induced phase errors and the inherent navigators can be utilized to further reduce motion artifacts. In vivo human/animal results have shown that this technique can be used to perform 3D high resolution DTI studies, particularly for animals with smaller brains. GRAPPA has been a successful k-space data-driven reconstruction algorithm for parallel imaging during the last decade. However, the performance of GRAPPA drops significantly as the accelerating factor increases. A novel iterative method termed parallel reconstruction using null operations (PRUNO) is developed in this project. In this approach, both data calibration and image reconstruction are formulated into generalized linear system equations based on intrinsic small k-space nulling kernels. And a conjugate-gradient (CG) method is proposed to solve the reconstruction equation feasibly. With more accurate problem formulation and higher calibration efficiency, PRUNO produces much better image quality than GRAPPA, especially under high accelerating factors. Pulsed continuous arterial spin labeling (PCASL) is a novel technique for 3D whole-brain perfusion imaging. However, a whole brain clinical PCASL protocol takes long imaging time due to multiple image acquisitions and averages. A real-time motion correction algorithm is thus desired for such a protocol. Prospective motion correction (PROMO) is a navigator based module, which can be easily inserted into various MR pulse sequences for real-time 3D motion estimation and correction. PROMO is successfully integrated into PCASL in this project. Our preliminary results show that the new pulse sequence is much more robust against patient motions and PROMO navigators have almost no negative influence to the imaging sequence. In addition, brief abstracts of two other fast imaging projects are also demonstrated in this dissertation, including a fast T2* imaging pulse sequence called iESGRE, and 7T diffusion imaging of rats using SNAILS.

    FDG PET/CT has rapidly emerged as an invaluable combined imaging modality that can identify tumors on the basis of not only anatomical alterations but also metabolic activity, thus allowing the detection of lesions that would otherwise be too small to distinguish. This book, comprising a collection of images from oncology cases, is organized according to the role of FDG PET/CT in the evaluation and management of oncology patients, and only secondarily by organ or tumor entity. In this way, it reflects the issues that clinicians actually address in their daily practice, namely: identification of an unknown or unsuspected primary; determination of the extent of disease; evaluation of response to therapy; and surveillance after response, i.e., detection of recurrent disease. In total, 100 cases involving different primary tumors are presented to illustrate findings in these different circumstances. FDG PET/CT in Clinical Oncology will be of great value to all newcomers to this field, whether medical students, radiology, nuclear medicine, or oncology fellows, or practicing physicians.

    Since functional MRI (fMRI) and the basic method of BOLD imaging were introduced in 1993 by Seiji Ogawa, fMRI has evolved into an invaluable clinical tool for routine brain imaging, and there have been substantial improvements in both the imaging technique itself and the associated statistical analysis. This book provides a state of the art overview of fMRI and its use in clinical practice. Experts in the field share their knowledge and explain how to overcome diverse potential technical barriers and problems. Starting from the very basics on the origin of the BOLD signal, the book covers technical issues, anatomical landmarks, the full range of clinical applications, methods of statistical analysis, and special issues in various clinical fields. Comparisons are made with other brain mapping techniques, such as DTI, PET, TMS, EEG, and MEG, and their combined use with fMRI is also discussed. Since the first edition, original chapters have been updated and new chapters added, covering both novel aspects of analysis and further important clinical applications.

    Fractal analysis is useful in digital image processing for the characterization of shape roughness and gray-scale texture or complexity. Breast masses present shape and gray-scale characteristics in mammograms that vary between benign masses and malignant tumors. This book demonstrates the use of fractal analysis to classify breast masses as benign masses or malignant tumors based on the irregularity exhibited in their contours and the gray-scale variability exhibited in their mammographic images. A few different approaches are described to estimate the fractal dimension (FD) of the contour of a mass, including the ruler method, box-counting method, and the power spectral analysis (PSA) method. Procedures are also described for the estimation of the FD of the gray-scale image of a mass using the blanket method and the PSA method.

    The recent development of three-dimensional imaging techniques has provided an enormous amount of information relevant to the clinical management of patients at low and high risk for coronary artery disease. However, while progress in each individual technique has been rapid, the correlation of findings obtained with radiology, nuclear medicine, and magnetic resonance imaging is still relatively neglected. In this book, qualified experts in cardiac imaging present the basic concepts of cardiac disease and imaging and compare the findings obtained in particular subspecialties with those acquired using other techniques. In this way the reader will learn how images and techniques can be integrated in clinical practice to the benefit of the patient. In addition, the issue is addressed of reducing the patient's exposure to ionizing radiation through appropriate multimodality integration. Physicians ranging from cardiac surgeons to internal medicine specialists and even public health administrators will find this book invaluable in understanding the role of hybrid cardiac imaging.

    In the elderly, the coexistence of various diseases, the presence of involutional and degenerative changes, and the occurrence of both physical and cognitive problems represent ""the norm."" It is therefore important to know how to distinguish the healthy elderly from those in need of treatment as a sound basis for avoiding overdiagnosis and overtreatment. This aspect is a central theme in Geriatric Imaging, which covers a wide range of applications of different imaging techniques and clearly explains both the potential and the limitations of diagnostic imaging in geriatric patients.

    This atlas focuses on the imaging and treatment options available for giant intracranial aneurysms since 1990s in the beginning of the so-called modern endovascular era. During this period, there were significant advances made in the therapy of small intracranial aneurysms though the treatment of giant aneurysms continued to pose an insurmountable challenge. At the turn of this century, this grim scenario gradually improved with better understanding of the pathophysiology of giant intracranial aneurysms. This changed scenario in giant intracranial aneurysm therapy has been illustrated with the aid of informative clinical case studies. The clinical presentation of giant aneurysms in adults and children is described as are the merits of different imaging modalities explained and illustrated. Extensive consideration has been given to modern fusion imaging that has improved our insight into the nature of the disease. Endovascular treatment approaches (including illustrative open surgical approaches) and reconstructive and deconstructive strategies are fully documented, with careful attention given to factors that influence management strategies, treatment choice and complications.The atlas will be a valuable reference and practical aid for neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, fellowship trainees, postgraduate & graduate students.

    This book provides a detailed guide to the use and interpretation of color Doppler ultrasound, CT, and MR imaging in patients with gynecological disorders. The advantages and limitations of each modality in imaging different pathologies are clearly presented, and advice is provided on the most appropriate option when ultrasound does not permit a definite diagnosis or fails to determine the precise extension of a lesion. Throughout, emphasis is placed on the importance of microscopic and macroscopic findings for a full understanding of the radiological appearances, and relevant points from the basic sciences are also highlighted. Special attention is paid to issues of differential diagnosis and imaging results that are characteristic of a particular type of lesion. The authors are recognized experts in the field who draw upon their considerable experience to provide an up-to-date reference book highly relevant to everyday clinical practice.

    This book promotes an evidence-based paradigm of fetal heart rate monitoring during labour, with a move away from the traditional 'pattern-based' interpretation to physiology-based interpretation. Chapters are presented in a systematic and accessible format, covering topics such as non-hypoxic causes of fetal brain injury, pre-existing hypoxia, types of intrapartum hypoxia, erroneous monitoring of maternal heart rate, fetal scalp blood sampling and fetal ECG (STAN), intermittent auscultation and medico-legal issues. Sections on 'pearls' and 'pitfalls' highlight good practice and common errors to promote best practice. End-of-chapter exercises allow the reader to engage with the theory and test their knowledge of key areas. This is a highly practical manual aimed at obstetricians and midwives, particularly those undergoing CTG training. The book will also be very useful to midwifery and medical students and to all those involved in multiprofessional intrapartum care.

    Hemodynamic conditions are hypothesized to affect the initiation, growth, and rupture of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs), a vascular disease characterized by progressive wall degradation and enlargement of the abdominal aorta. We hypothesized that the progression of AAA may be slowed by altering the hemodynamics in the abdominal aorta through exercise. The aim of the first study in this thesis was to use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to quantify flow stagnation and recirculation in AAAs by computing particle residence time (PRT). Specifically, we used gadolinium-enhanced MR angiography (MRA) to obtain images of the vessel lumens, which were used to generate subject-specific models. Phase-contrast MRI was used to measure blood flow at supraceliac and infrarenal locations to prescribe physiologic boundary conditions. CFD was used to simulate pulsatile flow, and PRT, particle residence index, and particle half-life of PRT in the aneurysms were computed. We observed significant regional differences of PRT in the aneurysms with localized patterns that differed depending on aneurysm geometry and infrarenal flow. A saccular aneurysm with the lowest mean infrarenal flow demonstrated the slowest particle clearance. In addition, improvements in particle clearance were observed with increase of mean infrarenal flow. This result motivated the next study to quantify the effect of augmentation of mean infrarenal flow during exercise on reducing chronic flow stasis that may promote increased mural thrombus burden, degradation of the vessel wall, and aneurysm growth. In the second study, we investigated three levels of activity, rest, mild and moderate intensities of lower-limb exercise to quantify the effect of exercise on hemodynamic conditions in AAA subjects. We measured the abdominal aortic blood flow at rest and during dynamic exercise, and quantified mean wall shear stress (MWSS), oscillatory shear index (OSI), and PRT. We observed that an increase in the level of activity correlated with an increase of MWSS and a decrease of OSI at three locations in the abdominal aorta, and these changes were most significant below the renal arteries. As the level of activity increased, PRT in the aneurysm was significantly decreased: 50% of particles were cleared out of AAAs within 1.36 ± 0.43, 0.34 ± 0.10, and 0.22 ± 0.06 s at rest, mild exercise and moderate exercise levels, respectively. Most of the reduction of PRT occurred from rest to the mild exercise level suggesting that mild exercise may be sufficient to reduce flow stasis in AAAs. The third study aimed to correlate hemodynamic characteristics of AAA with its progression, and quantify morphologic changes of aneurysm from study intake to 1.5-3.5-year follow-up of subjects randomized to usual activity or exercise training cohort. We acquired MRA of 16 subjects, and mid-aneurysm wall content data of 12 subjects at each intake and follow-up visit. 3D lumen models were built based on each intake and follow-up MRAs of six subjects. We observed morphologic changes of aneurysm lumen from intake to follow-up MRA of 11 subjects which exhibited local smoothing, shrinkage or expansion. We observed thickening of thrombus burden from follow-up wall content image of seven subjects whose aneurysm lumen was eventually narrowed. Based on 3D model comparison between intake and follow-up, and the correlation of morphologic changes with wall content changes and PRT contour plots computed in the previous study, we suggest that the region of narrowed lumen induced by thrombus buildup may be consistent with the region of long PRT. As a future work, we will extend our research in conjunction with CT data to quantify the changes of aneurysm wall, and increase the number of subjects to find more conclusive results.

    "This collaborative project by a scientist and artist from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine asks the reader to consider the aesthetics of human disease, both within and beyond the context of our preconceived social systems. Disease is a dynamically powerful force of nature that acts without regard to race, religion, or culture. These forces create visually stunning patterns with a remarkable ability to evoke human emotion in isolation that differswhen viewed in the context of the disease that produced the image. We see beauty in the delicate lacework of fungal hyphae invading a blood vessel, the structure of the normal cerebellum, and the desperate drive of metastasizing cancer cells. However, appreciation of the imagery produced by disease is bittersweet; we simultaneously experience the beauty of the natural world and the pain of those living with these disease processes. Ultimately, this series of images will leave the viewer with an understanding and appreciation of visual beauty inherent within the field." -- Book jacket.

    Breast cancer is the second leading cause of female cancer death in the United States with an average lifetime risk of 1 in 8. Early detection of the disease and subsequent treatment increase the chance of survival. X-ray mammography is the standard imaging technique for breast cancer screening, but it is difficult to identify malignant lesions in women with dense breasts using x-ray mammography. Dynamic-contrast-enhanced (DCE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has provided high sensitivity for breast cancer diagnosis due to its excellent soft tissue contrast, but there have been varied reports on its specificity. A recent study with a small surface coil has shown that high spatial and temporal resolution breast DCE MRI can improve sensitivity and specificity of ductal carcinoma in situ diagnosis by visualizing smaller scale features such as ductal and periductal enhancement. However, a small surface coil is not suitable for screening or bilateral staging exams where volumetric coverage of both breasts is necessary. Conversely, many commercially-available breast coils offer volumetric coverage of the breasts, but the large coil elements limit the signal-to- noise ratio (SNR) and thus the ability to increase spatial and temporal resolution with high parallel imaging acceleration factors. To address these concerns, we have designed and developed a custom-fitted 18-channel, bilateral breast radiofrequency (RF) coil array for providing high-resolution images in clinically-feasible scan times. The purpose of this work was three-fold: outline the construction process of a high- SNR custom-fitted array, benchmark its performance compared to a commercial design, and evaluate its utility for high-resolution clinical breast MRI. By placing a chain of overlapping small coil elements close to the tissue, we were able to obtain high SNR over the entire breast volume for medium-sized women. To reduce the overall exam time, we laid the coil elements in a geometry that facilitated bidirectional parallel imaging. Comparing the custom-fitted array to a commercially-available 8-channel breast array, the results show 3.6 times higher average SNR and superior parallel imaging quality for the custom-fitted array in volunteers. Using parallel imaging and taking advantage of the SNR benefits from the 18-channel coil array, we clinically demonstrated a 10-fold improvement in spatial resolution over the current Stanford Hospital protocol. We have conducted a clinical study comparing the diagnostic quality of high-resolution scans with the 18-channel array versus lower resolution scans in patients with suspicious lesions on mammography. The initial findings show that the improved resolution enables better depiction of overall lesion morphology and tissue interfaces. In summary, we have presented a method for constructing an 18-channel custom-fitted breast RF array and demonstrated its SNR and parallel imaging benefits. In a clinical setting, our initial findings show improved morphology characterization in high-resolution exams with the 18-channel array.

    Diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an MRI method that provides information about random microscopic motion of water molecules in biological tissues. In addition to offering a higher sensitivity for the diagnosis of white matter diseases such as stroke and multiple sclerosis, and producing connectivity maps of the brain, it is a promising prognostic tool in the assessment and treatment response monitoring of cancer in the body. While high in-plane resolution is desirable for all diffusion MRI applications, it is particularly essential for imaging of small structures. Unfortunately, the performance of diffusion MRI techniques is often hindered by a variety of factors including susceptibility variations, field inhomogeneities and bulk physiologic motion. This thesis presents a reduced field-of-view (FOV) single-shot echo-planar imaging (ss-EPI) method to address these problems and enable high-resolution diffusion MRI of targeted regions. The proposed method utilizes a two-dimensional (2D) echo-planar radio-frequency (RF) excitation pulse to achieve a sharp reduced-FOV profile, while still allowing contiguous multi-slice imaging and suppressing the fat signal. Extensive clinical evaluation of the technique demonstrated that sub-mm diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) on human spinal cords is feasible with minimal artifacts. High-resolution fiber tractography of the spinal cord successfully visualized the connectivity between the cord and the medulla oblongata, delineating internal structures such as gray/white matter. In vivo DWI of the larynx, breast and prostate validated the effectiveness of this technique in providing detailed depiction of the morphology outside the central nervous system. When the exponential diffusion attenuation is combined with high spatial resolution, DWI may suffer from poor signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The last part of this thesis presents an optimization strategy for the DWI parameters as a function of the imaging SNR. Specifically, the optimum b-value is shown to be a monotonically increasing function of the imaging SNR, with a convergence asymptote identical to the previously proposed values in literature. The effects of T2 relaxation are also incorporated for a more accurate optimization. In vitro and in vivo experiments demonstrated reduced error in ADC estimations and improved SNR in the diffusion-weighted images with the proposed technique.

This endoscopic procedure is one of the most technically challenging steps of diagnostic colonoscopy but it also represents the best documented proof of a complete examination. This book covers all aspects of the endoscopic exploration of the terminal ileum, from the technique itself to the clinical diagnosis and management of the main pathologies that occur in this region of the digestive tract. A wide selection of magnified and non-magnified diagnostic images accompanies the text. Intended as an update on the imaging and management of ileal disease, the book provides an invaluable tool for improving the endoscopist's technique and for enhancing the clinician's knowledge of small-bowel diseases.

    "The human eye is a complex and important organ that works similarly to the conventional camera. Many advanced image-processing algorithms have been proposed to analyze the subtle changes in the eye to diagnose eye abnormalities efficiently. Digital fundus images have been used efficiently for the diagnosis of diabetes retinopathy and glaucoma. Infrared imaging provides a temperature profile that depicts changes in the vascular tissues, which helps to study the ocular surface temperature (OST) and ocular diseases like dry eye and cataracts. This book covers the detection of diabetes retinopathy, glaucoma, and anterior segment eye abnormalities; instruments for the detection of glaucoma; and the development of a human eye model using computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer principles to predict inner temperatures of the eye from its surface temperature. Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) is one of the imaging systems that allow visualization of the anatomy and pathology of the anterior segment. It is particularly beneficial in evaluating regions of the eye behind the iris such as the ciliary body, lens zonular attachment, and lens periphery, which are obscured in other anterior scanning systems. In glaucoma imaging, UBM plays a significant role in objective assessment of peripheral anterior chamber angle morphology, which is useful in angle closure glaucoma diagnosis and management. Chapter 1 presents a UBM system for anterior chamber angle imaging. Chapter 2 describes both the formal design and development of an automated anterior segment eye disease classification system. The proposed system can be used for early disease diagnosis and treatment management"-- Provided by publisher.

    Image-Guided Cancer Therapy: A Multidisciplinary Approach provides clinicians with in-depth coverage of the growing, dynamic field of interventional oncology. Combining the knowledge of expert editors and authors into one powerhouse reference, this book looks at tumor ablation, HIFU, embolic therapies, emerging technologies, and radiation therapy throughout the body (liver, bone, breast, gynecologic and prostate cancers, to name just a few), and includes discussion of different imaging modalities. In the words of Peter Mueller, MD, author of the books Foreword: The senior authors are all world renowned experts in interventional oncology, which is another example of the high quality authorship and experience that is brought to this book. The later chapters discuss therapies that are simply not covered in any other source. Everyone who is doing or wants to do ablation therapies and interventional oncology will face a time when they will be asked to use their expertise in less used and less investigated areas. There is nowhere else where the reader can get information on the prostate, breast, and gynecologic areas, and especially pediatrics. This book is an outstanding contribution to the literature and will become a must read for all physicians who are interested in Interventional Oncology.

    Image-Guided Prostate Cancer Treatments is a comprehensive reference and practical guide on the technology and application of ultrasound and MRI in the male pelvis, with special attention to the prostate. The book is organized into three main sections, the first of which is devoted to general aspects of imaging and image-guided treatments. The second section provides a systematic overview of the application of ultrasound and MRI to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the lower urinary tract. Performance of the ultrasound and MRI studies is explained, and the normal and abnormal pathological anatomy is reviewed. Correlation with the ultrasound in the same plane is provided to assist in understanding the MRI sequences. Biopsy and interventional procedures, ultrasound-MRI fusion techniques, and image-guided therapies, including focused ultrasound, photodynamic therapy, microwave and laser ablation, are all fully covered. The third section focuses on securing treatment effectiveness and the use of follow-up imaging to ensure therapeutic success and detect tumor recurrence at an early stage, which is vital given that prompt focal treatment of recurrence is very successful. Here, particular attention is paid to the role of Doppler ultrasound and DCE-MRI technologies. This book, containing a wealth of high-quality illustrations based on high-end equipment, will acquaint beginners with the basics of prostate ultrasound and MRI, while more advanced practitioners will learn new skills, means of avoiding pitfalls, and ways of effectively relating the imaging and image-guided treatments to the clinical situation.

    "Acute neurologic diseases encompass a wide spectrum of medical illnesses with neurological manifestations which require rapid clinical, paraclinical and laboratory evaluation as patients are evaluated in the emergency department or acute care clinics. In the last decade, imaging has assumed far greater importance in the initial assessment of these patients, and is responsible for much of the cost and resources in the early, critical evaluation. However the optimal approach to utilization of imaging for thorough, yet efficient and cost-responsible care remains poorly defined for many acute neurologic presentations"--Provided by publisher.

    Imaging and Focal Therapy of Early Prostate Cancer evaluates the scientific evidence for the evolving trend to treat low to intermediate risk, clinically localized prostate cancer in a focally ablative manner with novel gland-preserving, focal therapy methods. Various ablative devices such as high intensity focused ultrasound, irreversible electroporation, photodynamic therapy, cryotherapy and laser ablation, among others, are discussed in regard to their strengths and limitations as a therapeutic modality. Emphasis is placed on tumor stage shift towards early stage disease with an increase in unilateral versus bilateral cancers validated by final pathology assessment of large prostatectomy series. Current and new approaches to image cancer foci within the prostate (3-Dimensional contrast-enhanced transrectal ultrasonography, multiparametric magnetic resonance image with spectroscopy, ETC) are presented along with biopsy techniques to map prostate cancer. Patient selection, treatment strategy, outcomes and safety concerns that may provide acceptable cancer control and improved quality of life for patients are all covered in detail. Written by experts in the field and lavishly illustrated with detailed line-art and photographs, Imaging and Focal Therapy of Early Prostate Cancer is a resourceful volume beneficial to practitioners specializing in the treatment and management of prostate cancer.

    Although interest in pancreatic pathology is very high in the radiological and gastroenterological communities, it is still the case that less is known about pathology of the pancreas than about liver pathology, for example. Diagnosis depends on the structure of the pancreatic lesion, which can be directly visualized on US, CT or MR images. This atlas, which encompasses both the imaging and the pathology of pancreatic neoplasms, will therefore be invaluable in enabling radiologists and sonographers to understand the underlying pathology and in allowing pancreatic pathologists to understand the imaging translation. The emphasis in the atlas is very much on the pathological and imaging appearances, with most of the text concentrated at the beginning of the chapters. A comprehensive overview is provided of typical and atypical presentations and diverse aspects of common and uncommon pancreatic neoplasms, including ductal adenocarcinoma, neuroendocrine neoplasms, intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms, cystic neoplasms, metastases and lymphoma.

    The scalp and cortex lie like pages of an open book on which the cortex enciphers vast quantities of information and knowledge. They are recorded and analyzed as temporal and spatial patterns in the electroencephalogram and electrocorticogram. This book describes basic tools and concepts needed to measure and decipher the patterns extracted from the EEG and ECoG. This book emphasizes the need for single trial analysis using new methods and paradigms, as well as large, high-density spatial arrays of electrodes for pattern sampling. The deciphered patterns reveal neural mechanisms by which brains process sensory information into percepts and concepts. It describes the brain as a thermodynamic system that uses chemical energy to construct knowledge. The results are intended for use in the search for the neural correlates of intention, attention, perception and learning; in the design of human brain-computer interfaces enabling mental control of machines; and in exploring and explaining the physicochemical foundation of biological intelligence.

    As imaging technologies and approaches have evolved, the scope of certain imaging techniques has moved far beyond the production of purely illustrative images or appealing time-lapse movies to providing the scientist with a rich range of ways to measure and quantify the biological process and outcome of gene expression. In Imaging Gene Expression: Methods and Protocols, expert authors offer up-to-date approaches and protocols that scientists in the field have developed, which would benefit the broader scientific community. Divided in three convenient parts, this detailed book covers the output of a gene, namely the RNA molecules that are transcribed from the gene and the way by which these molecules can be tracked or quantified in fixed or living cells, protocols that focus on the gene, DNA, or chromatin, as well as a variety of ways by which nuclear processes intertwined with gene expression can be followed and quantified in living cells as well as approaches for studying several sub-nuclear structures found in eukaryotic cells. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective subjects, lists of materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and up-to-date, Imaging Gene Expression: Methods and Protocols will serve researchers working toward imaging in the context of complete organisms.

    This atlas is a detailed guide to the imaging appearances of gliomas following treatment with neurosurgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Normal and pathological findings are displayed in detailed MR images that illustrate the potential modifications due to treatment. Particular emphasis is placed on characteristic appearances on the newer functional MR imaging techniques, including MR spectroscopy, diffusion-weighted imaging, and perfusion imaging. These techniques are revolutionizing neuroradiology by going beyond the demonstration of macroscopic alterations to the depiction of preceding metabolic changes at the cellular and subcellular level, thereby allowing earlier and more specific diagnosis. A key section comprising some 40 clinical cases and more than 500 illustrations offers an invaluable clinical and research tool not only for neuroradiologists but also for neurosurgeons, radiotherapists, and medical oncologists.

The physics at the basis of the most modern imaging systems is described, and the reader is introduced to the latest advances in image reconstruction and noise correction. Various novel concepts are then discussed, including those developed within the framework of the EURATOM FP7 MADEIRA research project on the optimization of imaging procedures in order to permit a reduction in the radiation dose to healthy tissues. Advances in quality control and quality assurance are covered, and the book concludes by listing rules of thumb for imaging that will be of use to both beginners and experienced researchers.

    Imaging in Pediatric Pulmonology is a definitive reference to imaging and differential diagnosis for pediatric pulmonology. Diseases and disorders seen in everyday clinical practice are featured, including infections, developmental disorders, airway abnormalities, diffuse lung diseases, focal lung diseases, and lung tumors. Organized to support the clinical thought process, the text begins with a series of clinical algorithms that provide a starting point for formulating a diagnosis. The physician will be able to identify the differentials by symptom complex and accordingly determine what test would be effective and how to proceed. The balance of the book is image-based and presents a comprehensive, multi-modality approach, with an emphasis on plain film and cross-sectional imaging. The imaging sections are correlated with pathology and clinical findings to help readers learn what the modality of choice can enable them to see. Edited by Robert H. Cleveland, MD, Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School and Chief of the Division of Diagnostic Radiology at Children's Hospital Boston, the book includes a talented group of associate editors and contributing authors who are noted experts in pathology, pulmonology, and radiology, making Imaging in Pediatric Pulmonology an ideal reference for all physicians involved in the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric pulmonary issues.

    This book provides an overview on the critical role of diagnostic imaging in the assessment of patients with suspected alimentary tract perforation, an emergent condition that requires prompt surgery. With the aid of numerous high-quality images, it is described how different imaging modalities, including plain film X-ray, ultrasonography, and multidetector row computed tomography (MDCT), permit correct diagnosis of the presence and cause of the perforation and of associated pathologies. Particular attention is paid to MDCT, with full description of its role in a range of scenarios at various levels of the alimentary tract. Imaging of GI tract perforation in different patient groups, such as pediatric patients, the elderly, and oncologic patients, is also addressed. This volume will greatly assist residents in radiology, radiologists, and physicians who are daily involved in the management of patients with clinically suspected alimentary tract perforation.
