Have you ever wondered where in the world did some test makers come up with impossible to answer questions? Well from the latest literature ofcourse. That's how they can separate the average from the exemplary student. The review books in Nuclear Medicine and Nuclear Radiology focus on the 'basics' or the 'core' of the material hoping that if you can get the easy questions out of the way then at least you'll be average. That's great! No shame in being average. If you do have time and want to strengthen your core knowledge while preparing to beat the curve, then pick up this book. Doesn't matter if you're a medical student, a resident, technologist, or someone from a cross discipline. If you are interested in Nuclear Medicine, then you may find value in the teachings of this book. This is a high-yield review book in the form of discussion points to clarify different concepts in Nuclear Medicine and Nuclear Radiology that are commonly seen and tested. This book should be used to supplement the basic textbooks and is best read after at least some exposure to Nuclear Medicine.

This book explains how the U.S. federal system manages environmental health issues, with a unique focus on risk management and human health outcomes. Building on a generic approach for understanding human health risk, this book shows how federalism has evolved in response to environmental health problems, political and ideological variations in Washington D.C, as well as in-state and local governments. It examines laws, rules and regulations, showing how they stretch or fail to adapt to environmental health challenges. Emphasis is placed on human health and safety risk and how decisions have been influenced by environmental health information. The authors review different forms of federalism, and analyse how it has had to adapt to ever evolving environmental health hazards, such as global climate change, nanomaterials, nuclear waste, fresh air and water, as well as examining the impact of robotics and artificial intelligence on worker environmental health. They demonstrate the process for assessing hazard information and the process for federalism risk management, and subsequently arguing that human health and safety should receive greater attention. This book will be essential reading for students and scholars working on environmental health and environmental policy, particularly from a public health, and risk management viewpoint, in addition to practitioners and policymakers involved in environmental management and public policy.

These new print editions are the abridged companions to Radiology Simplified, the first resident-to-resident guide to the new ABR Core Exam designed specifically for the iPhone, iPad and Mac. Our hope is that the hundreds of R3 residents who study from our iBooks version this year will empower themselves with the print editions to unplug from the Internet during some of their study time.Because the print versions are abridged, we've left content that works well in electronic medium - cine clips, embedded presentations, web links - exclusively to the iBooks version. We've also tried where possible to remind you when there's more content to explore in the electronic version. The print editions integrate corrections from hundreds of residents, which are also incorporated into the iBooks version on a continual basis through updates. Because we'll only be updating the print version once per year, the iBooks version will continue to be the most up-to-date version throughout the academic year.Core Cases 2016-2017, Volume 1. Our take on the best Core-focused cases in these topic areas: breast Imaging, cardiac Imaging, gastrointestinal, genitourinary Imaging, and musculoskeletal.

Working from basic chemical principles, Metals in Medicine presents a complete and methodical approach to the topic. Introductory chapters discuss important bonding concepts applicable to metallo-drugs and their biological targets, interactions that exist between the agents and substances in the biological milieu, basic pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties including transport and uptake of drugs by the cells, and methods for measuring efficacy and toxicity of agents. The steps from drug discovery to market place are also briefly outlined and discussed. These chapters lay the groundwork, in order that students can clearly understand how agents work, whatever their subject background. Following this introduction, chapters focus on individual metallo-drugs and agents for treating and detecting disease, their synthesis, structure and general properties, known mechanism of action and important physical and chemical principles that apply. Topics covered include cisplatin; platinum anticancer drugs; ruthenium, titanium, and gallium for treating cancer; gold compounds for treating arthritis, cancer, and other diseases; vanadium, copper, and zinc in medicine; metal complexes for diagnosing disease; and metals in nanomedicine. Throughout the book, “Feature Boxes” expand on features of drugs that are not directly related to studying metals in medicine, for example discovery, medical use, specialist assays, and metals in biology. At the end of the chapters there are specifically designed problems/exercises that apply basic kinetic, thermodynamic and chemical principles to practical problem solving in metals in medicine. Metals in Medicine distils the essence of this important topic for undergraduate and graduate students in chemistry, biochemistry, biology and the related areas of biophysics, pharmacology, and bioengineering, and for researchers in other fields interested in getting a general insight into metals in medicine.
