As an introduction to pathology, this lively text provides an excellent grounding and will appeal to all medical students who need to have a clear understanding of the biological mechanisms studied in this area. The authors take a strong clinical approach to the study of basic pathology in line with the integrated approach of the medical curriculum. Written in a user-friendly style the new edition includes new sections on haematology and microbiology, and is illustrated in colour with cartoons to highlight points of interest. Key point and revision boxes act as aide memoires.
"This book is designed to aid students who want a comprehensive review of histology, cell biology, and basic pathology. It consists of a set of multiple choice exam questions, written in the style of the USMLE [United States Medical Licensing Examination] exams. ... Each question has an explanation of why the correct answer should be chosen and a reference to one or both of the companion texts: 'Wheater's functional histology', 5th edition by Young, Lowe, Stevens, and Heath or 'Wheater's basic histopathology', 5th edition by Young, O'Dowd, and Stewart. ... The illustrations come from one or the other of the two companion texts and are in full color."--Preface, p. vii.
The availability of 3D imaging in cardiology has provided a large flow of information to the clinical management of low and high risk patients. However, the correlation among different findings such as perfusion, metabolism or wall motion abnormalities is difficult and mostly qualitative. In fact labs may return information that is frequently redundant or even conflicting due to lack of correlation between different techniques in imaging. The complexity of the problem is can be reflected in the technical differences of the many imaging techniques, for example, echocardiography is based on ultrasound while angiography is based on x-rays. This text collects the experiences of different specialists, starting from the basic concepts of cardiac imaging, analyzing differences and similarities between invasive and non-invasive techniques, challenged versus the computer point of view, in order to obtain an operative efficient guide in the field of image fusion.
One of the first books on general pathology written specifically for veterinary nurses and those new to the subject. It builds on prior knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biochemistry to explain the pathological changes that occur in sick animals. The book provides an understanding of the effects of various disease processes, and relates these to clinical presentation, diagnosis and prognosis, and treatment rationales. Presented in an easy to read format, with many illustrations and summary boxes to aid comprehension. Each chapter has a useful "test yourself" section to test understanding.
This book lays out the principles of general pathology for biomedical researchers, grad students, medical students, and physicians, with elegance and deep insight. Disease processes are explained in the light of malfunctions at the cellular level, offering a rich understanding of the clinical correlates of all aspects of fundamental cellular physiology and basic biomedicine. The book has been fully revised and updated to present a current but deep understanding of disease states at the cell and tissue levels - cellular pathology, inflammation, immunopathology vascular disturbance, and tumor biology.
An accessible and enjoyable introduction to pathology and the mechanisms of disease, this book puts pathology into its historical, scientific and clinical context. Organised in four main themes, the text highlights key mechanisms and their interplay in producing symptoms, signs and disease. Supplemented throughout with colourful cartoons, and much-praised clinical scenarios, this entertaining look at pathology offers historical anecdotes and helpful key-points boxes.
Now in its 5th edition, Escourolle & Poirier Manual of Basic Neuropathology continues the tradition of being one of the most respected texts in neuropathology by providing an introduction to the various diseases of the nervous system and their underlying pathology. This thorough, yet concise manual covers the full spectrum of the various categories of neurologic disease, including neoplasia, trauma, vascular disease, and infection, with separate chapters on prion diseases, multiple sclerosis, degenerative disorders, acquired metabolic diseases, hereditary metabolic diseases, congenital malformations, perinatal diseases, skeletal muscle, peripheral nerve, and the pituitary gland. To accurately guide the clinician, the most current techniques in neuropathology are covered in their own chapter at the end of the book. Richly illustrated throughout, with over 700 images of various neuropathogical diagnoses such as tumor, stroke, infection, degeneration, and malformation among others, this new edition of the classic monograph is an easy-to-use manual for any student, researcher, or practitioner seeking basic information on neuropathology. Used for decades in all fields related to the nervous system-including neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry, neuroradiology, neuroendocrinology, neuropathology, pathology, and neuroscience- Escourolle & Poirier Manual of Basic Neuropathology is regarded at the 'bible' of neuropathology. This new version has been completely rewritten and expanded to include important updates in genetics and molecular biology, reflective of the important neuropathological discoveries in those fields over the past decade.This book is a practical diagnostic tool and necessary reading for anyone encountering pathological conditions of the nervous system.
This text teaches dental hygiene students the essential information they need to visually examine and recognize oral disease in practice. The General Pathology section covers the major determinants of disease and the body systems as they are covered when taking a patient's medical history. The Oral Pathology section is organized according to characteristics of lesions, so students learn to recognize lesions by appearance and differentiate between similar lesions. More than 400 detailed photographs and illustrations help students identify lesions. Clinical examples and case studies are included.

Non-pathologists, such as toxicologists and study personnel, can find it difficult to understand the data they receive from pathologists. Toxicological pathologists write long, detailed and highly technical reports. Study personnel are under daily pressure to decide whether lesions described in pathology reports are treatment-related and thus important to the pharmaceutical company or whether the lesions are background changes and thus of little significance. Written by experienced toxicological pathologists, Pathology for Toxicologists: Principles and Practices of Laboratory Animal Pathology for Study Personnel serves to bridge the gap in the understanding of pathology data, enabling non-pathologists to more easily comprehend pathology reports, better integrate pathology data into final study reports and ask pathologists relevant questions about the test compound. This succinct, fully referenced, full colour book is suitable for toxicologists at all stages of their training or career who want to know more about the pathology encountered in laboratory animals used in safety studies. Key features include important chapters on spontaneous and target organ lesions in rats, mice, non-human primates, mini pigs, rabbits and beagle dogs as well as information on general pathology, macroscopic target organ lesions, ancillary pathology techniques, haematology, biochemistry and adversity. Pathology for Toxicologists: Principles and Practices of Laboratory Animal Pathology for Study Personnel includes: Colour diagrams explaining how lesions are caused by either external compounds or spontaneously The anatomic variations and background lesions of laboratory animals Advice on sampling tissues, necropsy, ancillary pathology techniques and recording data A chapter on the haematology and biochemistry of laboratory animals Full colour photographs of common macroscopic lesions encountered in laboratory animals A comprehensive glossary
