Real-time Knowledge-based Fuzzy Logic Model for Soft Tissue Deformation:1st ed. 2019 Joey Sing Yee Tan/ Amandeep S. Sidhu
Covering all aspects of soft tissue pathology, this highly regarded volume in the Diagnostic Pathology series is an excellent point-of-care resource for pathologists at all levels of experience and training -both as a quick reference and as an efficient review to improve knowledge and skills. Specifically designed as a point-of-care resource, the updated third edition uses a templated, highly formatted design; concise, bulleted text; and superior color images throughout that demonstrate the variety of differentiating factors in soft tissue tumors.
The skin is the largest human organ system. Loss of skin integrity due to injury or illness results in a substantial physiologic imbalance and ultimately in severe disability or death. The most common cause of significant skin loss is thermal injury, followed by trauma and chronic ulcerations. Over the past decades extraordinary advances have been made in the understanding of cellular and molecular processes of wound healing and the pathobiology of chronic wounds. This knowledge has led to wound care innovations that facilitate more rapid closure of wounds with better functional and aesthetic outcome. A sensible and resource-saving utilization of these innovative technologies requires a broad knowledge of these processes and innovations. This book intends to give an overview about today´s wound care developments in tissue engineering and skin replacement. It presents a variety of indications and diversities of clinical applications to help the surgeon select a specific procedure for each clinical situation.
Diana M. Abatecola, a nationally certified and licensed massage therapist, here gives detailed step-by-step instructions regarding the application of a one-hour rejuvenating/relaxation massage routine. This audio will help improve your body mechanics, application of massage techniques, and range of motion; moreover, it will help enforce your knowledge of bony landmarks, muscles, and endangerment sites. 1.

This practical guide is a compilation of firsthand expertise from leading authorities around the world on the use of ultrasound elastography. The stiffness or softness of the imaged tissue derived from elastography provides accurate radiologic diagnosis for disease processes including cancer, inflammation, and fibrosis. It is an efficacious and accurate diagnostic imaging modality that helps avoid invasive biopsies. The first two chapters cover basic fundamental principles of elastography, with subsequent chapters exploring pathology-specific utilization. The authors cover the extensively validated and implemented use of elastography for diffuse liver disease, and diseases of the breast andthyroid gland. They also discuss the potential benefits and limitations for the prostate, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, musculoskeletal system, salivary glands, lymph nodes, and testes. The book concludes with a chapter on potential future applications of this ever-evolving technology. Key Highlights Discussion of key differences between strain elastography and shear wave elastography by individual organ systems Clinical pearls on how to accurately perform elastography and tips for avoiding false-positive or false-negative results Case studies elucidate the targeted use of elastographic findings by specific pathology Illustrations in the breast and liver chapters demonstrate precise transducer techniques MRI elastography as an emerging and safe assessment tool, primarily for the diagnosis of liver disease, with emergent potential for additional organs This book provides key knowledge on visualizing quantifiable differences in tissue elasticity and applying this data to improved treatment strategies for diverse pathologies. It is essential reading for radiologists, sonographers, and imaging technicians.
Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer whose cancer cells – taken without her knowledge – became one of the most important tools in medicine. The first ‘immortal’ human tissue grown in culture, HeLa cells were vital for developing the polio vaccine; uncovered secrets of cancer, viruses, and the effects of the atom bomb; helped lead to important advances like in vitro fertilization, cloning, and gene mapping; and have been bought and sold by the billions. Yet Henrietta herself remains virtually unknown, buried in an unmarked grave Now Rebecca Skloot takes us on an extraordinary journey in search of Henrietta´s story, from the ‘coloured’ ward of Johns Hopkins Hospital in the 1950s to East Baltimore today, where her children and grandchildren live, and struggle with the legacy of her cells. Full of warmth and questing intelligence, astonishing in scope and impossible to put down, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks captures the beauty and drama of scientific discovery, as well as its human consequences. 1.

Proprioceptive training is integral to nearly all daily life functions. An injury, whether due to repetitive stress, disease or soft tissue damage, affects proprioception. Proprioception affects work, sports, and household and leisure activities, so it is paramount to have a thorough knowledge of the current research on proprioceptive training. Such a framework lends itself to designing treatment plans that increase patient lifestyle satisfaction while improving clinical outcomes. This course will cover the fundamental principles of proprioception. The book will present the architectural framework of proprioception as the basis for treatment interventions designed to improve function. Improving patient outcomes will be facilitated through increasing your knowledge of the different treatment techniques to improve proprioception. Several effective strategies will be examined for the young, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis patients, Parkinson’s patients, Alzheimer’s patients, and many more. 1. Language: English.
