Hepatology Clinical Cases Uncovered Book Excerpt:

Hepatology is an important specialty with diseases and complications related to viral hepatitis and alcohol being the main reason for seeking specialist advice. On most general medical rotations and on most surgical wards there are patients with hepatological problems. Hepatology: Clinical Cases Uncovered contains clinical presentations with real-life patient cases and outcomes as seen on the wards and in exams, and leads students through a practical approach to diagnosis and management of hepatological disease. Following a question and answer approach, including self-assessment material and a ‘refresher’ section on the basic science, Hepatology: Clinical Cases Uncovered features investigations and the treatment options available for patients presenting with hepatological problems. Difficult concepts are clarified and relevant links are made between pathology and clinical presentation. Hepatology: Clinical Cases Uncovered is ideal for medical students, junior doctors on the Foundation Programme, GP trainees, residents, specialist nurses and nurse practitioners. The book is also an ideal refresher for hepatology or gastroenterology trainees at the beginning of their specialist training programme

Case Studies in Intelligent Computing Book Excerpt:

Although the field of intelligent systems has grown rapidly in recent years, there has been a need for a book that supplies a timely and accessible understanding of this important technology. Filling this need, Case Studies in Intelligent Computing: Achievements and Trends provides an up-to-date introduction to intelligent systems. This edited book captures the state of the art in intelligent computing research through case studies that examine recent developments, developmental tools, programming, and approaches related to artificial intelligence (AI). The case studies illustrate successful machine learning and AI-based applications across various industries, including: A non-invasive and instant disease detection technique based upon machine vision through the image scanning of the eyes of subjects with conjunctivitis and jaundice Semantic orientation-based approaches for sentiment analysis An efficient and autonomous method for distinguishing application protocols through the use of a dynamic protocol classification system Nonwavelet and wavelet image denoising methods using fuzzy logic Using remote sensing inputs based on swarm intelligence for strategic decision making in modern warfare Rainfall–runoff modeling using a wavelet-based artificial neural network (WANN) model Illustrating the challenges currently facing practitioners, the book presents powerful solutions recently proposed by leading researchers. The examination of the various case studies will help you develop the practical understanding required to participate in the advancement of intelligent computing applications. The book will help budding researchers understand how and where intelligent computing can be applied. It will also help more established researchers update their skills and fine-tune their approach to intelligent computing.
