MRI of the Liver: Imaging Techniques, Contrast Enhancement, Differential Diagnosis

Buy
The practicing radiologist is continually challenged to update his/her competencies so as to deliver state-of-the-art radiological care. Nowhere is this truer than in the rapidly evolving world of magnetic resonance imaging, where innovations in both technology and diagnostic pharmaceuticals have dramatically altered the landscape of practice. MR imaging plays an important role in the management of patients with liver disease, permitting not only the detection of benign and malignant hepatic masses but also the characterization of focal and diffuse liver lesions in a single non-invasive examination. The excellent soft tissue contrast achievable on MR imaging permits accurate assessment of both the full extent of tumor infiltration and of the relationship of tumors to adjacent vascular structures. This information is vital for decisions as to the appropriate course of treatment for a given patient.With this in mind, this book is aimed at assisting busy radiologists to incorporate the experience of experts in MR imaging of the liver into their daily practice. The contributors to this book are highly acclaimed radiologists with extensive personal experience in abdominal imaging in general and liver MR imaging in particular. The product of their efforts is a book that comprehensively reviews the many diseases that affect the liver, and describes in detail the typical enhancement features of these diseases on MR imaging. Because a number of very different MR contrast agents are now available for use in MR imaging of the liver, a feature of this book is the comparative enhancement behavior of lesions on post-contrast imaging after administration of these agents. For completion, comparison is also made with the typical enhancement behavior of lesions on alternative diagnostic imaging modalities, namely ultrasound and computed tomography.

This second edition of “MRI of the Liver” is a revised and extensively updated version of the first edition published in 2003. The chapters included in the first edition have been enriched with the most recent information available in the literature, and by the inclusion of many additional images; the opportunity to directly observe the characteristic features of the lesions under discussion represents a very efficient learning tool for practicing radiologists.

Elementary Computability, Formal Languages, and Automata
Elementary Computability, Formal Languages, and Automata

This book is an introduction to theoretical computer science emphasizing two interrelated areas: the theory of computability {how to tell whether problems are algorithmically solvable) and the theory of formal languages (how to design and use special languages, as for algorithms). Automata {idealized computer devices) are used as precise...

Cities in a Globalizing World: Governance, Performance, And Sustainability (Wbi Learning Resources Series)
World Bank research shows that in 2003, 48 percent of the world’s population (3 billion people) lived in urban areas—a 33 percent increase from the 1990 level. By 2020, 4.1 billion people (55 percent of the world’s population) will live in urban areas. Almost 94 percent of the increase will occur in developing countries. By 2015,...
