For a long time, imaging of the chest was based on the use of either radiography, demonstrating lung morphology, or scintigraphy, looking at lung function. However, as a result of recent developments in CT and MRI technology it is now possible to perform dedicated investigations of different aspects of lung function, such as ventilation, perfusion, gas exchange, and respiratory mechanics. This volume, written by acknowledged experts in the field, provides a well-illustrated and comprehensive review of these novel approaches to functional imaging of the chest. It will be of great assistance to all who are establishing such strategies in the research or clinical arenas for the diagnostic work-up and follow-up of patients with lung diseases.

This book reviews the basics of pulmonary functional imaging using new CT and MR techniques and describes the clinical applications of these techniques in detail. The intention is to equip readers with a full understanding of pulmonary functional imaging that will allow optimal application of all relevant techniques in the assessment of a variety of diseases, including COPD, asthma, cystic fibrosis, pulmonary thromboembolism, pulmonary hypertension, lung cancer and pulmonary nodule. Pulmonary functional imaging has been promoted as a research and diagnostic tool that has the capability to overcome the limitations of morphological assessments as well as functional evaluation based on traditional nuclear medicine studies. The recent advances in CT and MRI and in medical image processing and analysis have given further impetus to pulmonary functional imaging and provide the basis for future expansion of its use in clinical applications. In documenting the utility of state-of-the-art pulmonary functional imaging in diagnostic radiology and pulmonary medicine, this book will be of high value for chest radiologists, pulmonologists, pulmonary surgeons, and radiation technologists.

Clinical Pharmacology for Prescribing explains how drugs work and why they should be prescribed for common medical conditions. Linking disease processes to pharmacological interventions, this guide gives a sound basis for evidence based prescribing. Written for medical students, trainee doctors and non-medical prescribers, it addresses all aspects of practical pharmacology, explaining drug classes, their mechanisms and effects on the body. Ultimately its focus is on clinical use, so that safe prescribing decisions are based on sound understanding of science - why and how drugs work to treat common conditions. Every chapter provides clear linkages between pathophysiology of disease and drug mechanisms, highlighted in original illustrations that bring together drug mechanisms, pathways and their place in medical management. Unwanted effects, drug interactions and prescribing warnings are emphasised to help the reader become aware of critical issues in prescribing. This resource also addresses how to prescribe for vulnerable patient groups and provokes deep understanding for patient safety. Written by a Practicing Pharmaceutical Physician with a D.Phil in Pharmacology, an Assistant Professor with the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and a Senior hospital-based Clinical Pharmacist. The textbook has been extensively reviewed by practicing clinicians such that this new resource exemplifies the skills and knowledge needed for practical, legal and safe clinical prescribing.

Over the past decade, we have witnessed a dramatic acceleration in the application of magnetic resonance techniques within the medical sciences. Following the original experimental demonstration of the NMR phenomenon by Bloch and Purcell in 1946, emphasis was directed toward the study of physical materials: however, in the 1950's and 1960's, research was reported on the use of NMR to investigate the properties of biological materials including cell systems, excised muscle tissue and certain in vivo models. This book fully discusses this important topic.
