Ryker and I aren't exactly perfect. But I was falling for him-and falling hard. Every kiss. Every Touch. Every embrace. Just made me realize this wasn't a fling. It wasn't even a relationship. It was so much more. I just hoped Rex was wrong about Ryker. Because I didn't have the heart to listen to him say those terrible three words. Told you so.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Functional Imaging and Modeling of the Heart, FIMH 2009, held in Nice, France in June 2009. The 54 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. The contributions cover topics such as cardiac imaging and electrophysiology, cardiac architecture imaging and analysis, cardiac imaging, cardiac electrophysiology, cardiac motion estimation, cardiac mechanics, cardiac image analysis, cardiac biophysical simulation, cardiac research platforms, and cardiac anatomical and functional imaging.
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the Third International Workshop on Statistical Atlases and Computational Models of the Heart: Imaging and Modelling Challenges, STACOM 2012, held in conjunction with MICCAI 2012, in Nice, France, in October 2012. The 42 revised full papers were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on CFD challenge, DE-MRI segmentation challenge, LV landmark detection challenge, motion tracking analysis challenge, and regular papers.
Diagnostic Imaging for the Emergency Physician, written and edited by a practicing emergency physician for emergency physicians, takes a step-by-step approach to the selection and interpretation of commonly ordered diagnostic imaging tests. Dr. Joshua Broder presents validated clinical decision rules, describes time-efficient approaches for the emergency physician to identify critical radiographic findings that impact clinical management and discusses hot topics such as radiation risks, oral and IV contrast in abdominal CT, MRI versus CT for occult hip injury, and more. Diagnostic Imaging for the Emergency Physician has been awarded a 2011 PROSE Award for Excellence for the best new publication in Clinical Medicine. Consult this title on your favorite e-reader, conduct rapid searches, and adjust font sizes for optimal readability. Choose the best test for each indication through clear explanations of the "how" and "why" behind emergency imaging. Interpret head, spine, chest, and abdominal CT images using a detailed and efficient approach to time-sensitive emergency findings. Stay on top of current developments in the field, including evidence-based analysis of tough controversies - such as indications for oral and IV contrast in abdominal CT and MRI versus CT for occult hip injury; high-risk pathology that can be missed by routine diagnostic imaging - including subarachnoid hemorrhage, bowel injury, mesenteric ischemia, and scaphoid fractures; radiation risks of diagnostic imaging - with practical summaries balancing the need for emergency diagnosis against long-terms risks; and more. Optimize diagnosis through evidence-based guidelines that assist you in discussions with radiologists, coverage of the limits of "negative" or "normal" imaging studies for safe discharge, indications for contrast, and validated clinical decision rules that allow reduced use of diagnostic imaging. Clearly recognize findings and anatomy on radiographs for all major diagnostic modalities used in emergency medicine from more than 1000 images. Find information quickly and easily with streamlined content specific to emergency medicine written and edited by an emergency physician and organized by body system.

This is the tenth edition of the authoritative API Textbook of Medicine, completely revised, updated and expanded, with 28 brand new chapters. The textbook is comprised of two volumes, divided into 29 sections. Beginning with an introduction to the practice of medicine, and a disease profile and epidemiology of communicable and non-communicable diseases, each subsequent section covers a separate medical specialty. The second section on ‘Clinical Approach to Key Manifestation’ has been expanded with six new chapters, including the appropriate selection of imaging modalities. Other new topics in this edition include advanced cardiac life support system, life-style changes in the management of diabetes, diabetes in the elderly, prevention of cardiovascular disease, acute and chronic pancreatitis, and tumours of the liver. Chapters on chronic and sleep-related pulmonary disorders have been completely re-written to highlight their increased prevalence, and a new chapter on pulmonary rehabilitation has been added. An entirely new section on the ‘Future of Medicine’ including regenerative medicine, nanotechnology and nanomedicine, robotic surgery, and an introduction to ‘space medicine’, brings the API Textbook of Medicine to its conclusion. With 1090 full colour images and illustrations, spanning over 3000 pages, this all-encompassing textbook is a comprehensive guide to the practice of medicine, brought fully up-to-date for physicians, surgeons and post-graduate medical students.

Leading clinicians and researchers from around the world review the full scope of current developments, research, and scientific controversy regarding the principles and applications of cardiac CT. Richly illustrated with numerous black-and-white and color images, the book discusses the interpretation of CT images of the heart in a variety of clinical, physiological, and pathological applications. The authors emphasize current state-of-the-art uses of CT, but also examine developments at the horizon. They also review the technical basis of CT image acquisition, as well as tools for image visualization and analysis.
Ryker dumped me. Everyone warned me dating him was the wrong decision. But I did it anyway. Now that it's been three months I'm finally in a good place. I haven't started dating just yet but I know that will happen in time. Finally, I don't think about Ryker anymore. But when I have a dream about Zeke, a very inappropriate one, I start to wonder things I shouldn't. And I start to look at him in a way I never have before...
