Vascular CT Angiography Manual Book Excerpt:

Despite the exponential growth in the use of peripheral CTA in the diagnosis and follow-up of vascular disease patients, practical sources from which to gain valuable expertise in this field remain scarce. There is becoming a great need for experts in the field of peripheral CTA, yet learning this imaging modality may be intimidating and time consuming. Very few if any, small, concise and portable books exist to ease training in this field and current books in this field are overwhelming, difficult to manage, text books that often combine CTA and MRI. A so called " how to manual" and reference guide to explain this technique from beginning to end, which compiles valuable, and difficult to obtain clinical pearls and descriptions of disease processes will be of tremendous value. The Peripheral CT Angiography Manual aims to make learning this intimidating technique and the diseases for which it applies simple and fun.

The Johns Hopkins ABSITE Review Manual Book Excerpt:

Written by Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine faculty and surgical residents, the second edition of The Johns Hopkins ABSITE Review Manual delivers comprehensive coverage of the American Board of Surgery In-Training Examination through two full-length practice tests. Both tests are based on actual key words from recent ABSITEs, and are accompanied by test review sections, which go over every practice test question and answer, providing rationales behind surgical decision-making. ABSITE-style question format familiarizes readers with the test’s presentation and content. This edition features twice the number of questions as in the previous edition, offering even more opportunities for self-paced review. Rationales for correct and incorrect responses help to identify the test-taker’s strengths and weaknesses. A convenient companion website offers a complete online test bank to facilitate studying on the go and simulate the actual examination. This book is ideal not only for those preparing for the ABSITE, but also for surgeons and residents studying for the general surgery qualifying exam and for all surgical residents seeking to review key topics during rotations.

Drawings accompany each picture to better explain the example. Furthermore, difficult and complex anatomical examples are supplemented with digital images and movies to aid in illustrating and understanding the anatomy. Each general set of anomalies as well as each specific abnormality or set of abnormalities includes a concise and simple review of the embryology and epidemiology of the abnormality as well as a concise explanation of the anatomy of the abnormality. In addition, the methods to identify and recognize the abnormality by computed tomography is discussed. Finally, the prognosis and common treatment options for the anomaly are addressed within this comprehensive book.

Atlas of Postmortem Angiography Book Excerpt:

This atlas of postmortem angiography provides a summary of techniques that have been developed and used in order to visualize the human vascular system. The indications, advantages, limitations, and pitfalls of the different techniques are explained in detail through the use of examples from real cases and a wealth of informative images, as well as knowledge from the latest scientific works. Helpful recommendations are made concerning interpretation of the obtained radiological images, which will allow readers to start their own work in the field of post-mortem angiography or to ease and improve their practice. The atlas has been edited and written by members of an international working group created in 2012, “Technical Working Group Post-mortem Angiography Methods” (TWGPAM), who for the first time summarize their experiences concerning this new approach. Since findings explaining the reasons for both natural and traumatic death are often hidden within the vascular system, post-mortem angiography is of the highest importance in elucidating cause of death and may represent the key to minimally invasive autopsy. ​
