Complete PET. Student's Book With Answers

This casebook/atlas has been written by Pier Francesco Rambaldi, Assistant Professor at the Second University of Naples, in collaboration with Giovanni Fontanella. The manual of 352 pages, enriched by 256 illustrations, almost all in colour, is structured as a collection of clinical oncology cases in which the integration of PET/CT with FDG to the classic diagnostic algorithm has been proposed, including standard radiological and laboratory texts.

Complete PET. Student's book with answers

In conclusion, this book provides to students and experts in nuclear medicine, radiology and oncology, but also to all other clinicians interested in better understanding the clinical role of PET/FDG in oncology, a guidance for the interpretation of the images, which correlate anatomical and functional data. In this way, a clinically valuable report correctly answering the diagnostic query is obtained. This final result may be useful for all physicians who are in charge of oncological patients to contextualize, explain and communicate the results obtained with PET/CT, which may have a dramatic impact on prognosis, choice of treatment and the quality of life not only of the patient but also of their family members.

The E Myth Veterinarian: Why Most Veterinary Practices Don't Work and What to Do About It is a wake-up call to the veterinary profession. Co-authored by Michael Gerber and Dr. Peter Weinstein, the primary concept this book is trying to convey is that veterinary medicine is a people profession first and an animal profession second. As such, to thrive, veterinarians must provide people with more than just clinical care for their pets.

The second edition of Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care Medicine: Self-Assessment Color Review discusses triage, case management, and prognosis through a large and diverse collection of clinical vignettes. The authors have amassed corresponding photographs and diagnostic images for almost every case, a great feat that adds a sense of realism to the book. The book is loosely structured. Initially, it focuses on fluid therapy, triage, interpretation of blood gas results, and the Rule of 20, but then the cases presented follow in an order characteristic of a chaotic day in a veterinary emergency center (eg, dog with traumatic injuries, vomiting dog, yellow [icteric] cat, and dog with chocolate toxicosis). This is a workbook, not a textbook; however, given the large amount of information it contains, it is a great value for the price.

Despite the strengths of this handbook, it is not without its shortcomings. For example, the minimum database (ie, the recommended basic set of variables that should be evaluated in emergency situations; MDB) is defined inconsistently. The MDB is defined as Hct and total solids, BUN, and glucose concentrations in the detailed list of abbreviations at the beginning of the handbook, but is defined as PCV and total solids, BUN, glucose, electrolyte, and lactate concentrations in the introduction of the handbook. This may cause readers some confusion until they identify this inconsistency. There is considerable redundancy within and between chapters. Although redundancy is inherent in the practice of emergency medicine because many conditions warrant similar concerns regarding issues such as perfusion and pain, the repetition weakens the content when an error happens to be introduced and then is repeated for multiple conditions. Even though the errors I identified would not adversely affect patient care, they may cause confusion for some readers. Also, notably absent from the Procedures and Protocols chapter are discussions of transtracheal wash, nasal feeding, nasal oxygen tubes, and FAST (focused assessment sonograms for trauma, triage, and tracking) examinations.

Overall, this is a well-written book with excellent illustrations that is easy to follow. It achieves its stated purpose and will be beneficial as a quick and useful reference guide for students, veterinarians, and veterinary hospital staff members.

This book and its accompanying website represent a well-done and effective multimedia approach to teaching the art of ultrasonographic scanning. The descriptive text, updated illustrations and images, and narrated videos provide readers with multiple tools to boost their confidence and develop or improve their ultrasonographic scanning technique and interpretation skills.

The chapters on specific organs and systems have been updated with current data, expanded discussions, and extensive references. Although the text is thorough, tables that summarize differential diagnoses and decision flow charts are lacking. The organization of the book is consistent, but in some areas the text is dense and seems somewhat disjointed or incongruous. Consequently, this book is more of a narrative textbook rather than a quick-reference manual for patient-side use. The copious ultrasonographic images throughout the book are of high quality, and most have been updated. The videos referenced in the text are useful guides for scanning complex regions and identifying normal anatomy or pathology. I believe there is a great potential here for future development.

The second edition of Differential Diagnosis in Small Animal Medicine is an excellent resource for third- and fourth-year veterinary students on clinical rotations and new graduates who are in need of a compact, pocket-friendly reference with a problem-oriented approach to clinical cases. Compared with the first edition, this edition contains more expansive lists of differential diagnoses that are organized by clinical signs (eg, polyuria and polydipsia), physical examination findings (eg, red eye), and radiographic (eg, abnormal bronchial pattern), ultrasonographic (eg, abnormal intestinal wall thickness), laboratory (eg, hypokalemia), and electrodiagnostic (ie, alterations in the P wave) abnormalities. Aside from use in clinical situations, this book will also be an effective study guide for students preparing to take the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination. Its outline format makes it an easy read for busy students, and its categorical approach helps readers focus on core clinical concepts that will likely appear on the examination. The only downside of this book is that it is not comprehensive; however, it is not intended to be. The purpose of this book is to highlight diagnostic rule-outs so that novice practitioners avoid missing potential diagnoses and remember to assess the entire clinical situation. Although accessible and convenient for use on an as-needed basis, this book is probably less appropriate for seasoned veterinarians because it does not contain any new information.

It seems counterintuitive to refer to a book of > 1,600 pages (with an additional 300 online-only pages), written by 400 authors, and compiled by 21 editors as concise; nonetheless, that is exactly how I would describe the third edition of Clinical Veterinary Advisor: Dogs and Cats. The book is divided into 6 sections: Diseases and Disorders, Procedures and Techniques, Differential Diagnoses, Laboratory Tests, Clinical Algorithms, and Drug Formulary. Purchasers of the book are also granted access to the online version of the book, which is complete with additional material including 150 customizable client education sheets.

In summary, this book tries to do too much and stumbles a bit in the attempt. However, the sections on Diseases and Disorders, Differential Diagnoses, and Clinical Algorithms, along with the online material, make this book a bargain for the price.

Canine and Feline Anesthesia and Co-Existing Disease, edited by veterinary anesthesiologists Drs. Lindsey Snyder and Rebecca Johnson, is the first veterinary textbook to focus on the specific impact of disease on anesthesia. This initial effort at identifying key comorbidities and their physiologic and pathophysiologic impact on anesthesia of dogs and cats is a laudable endeavor. The information provided generally contains sufficient detail and offers a systematic approach for identifying key concerns associated with a variety of common anomalies. Most chapters provide adequate detail, but some chapters fall short on identifying anesthetic considerations and a detailed discussion for specific diseases or procedures. For example, key organ systems such as the cardiovascular and hematologic systems are adequately represented with a broad scope of diseases and their associated anesthetic issues, whereas discussion of the respiratory and nervous systems falls short of incorporating common physiologic alterations and anesthetic management approaches for frequently encountered diseases or procedures. The brief, but occasionally detailed, physiologic overview in each chapter provides readers with a useful review of physiology and fundamental principles. The comprehensive, systematic, disease-focused approach to most anesthetic issues makes this book a great reference for both veterinary anesthesiology residents and experienced anesthesiologists. The authors and editors of this book are commended for venturing into this important area of veterinary anesthetic care.

The second edition of Small Animal Soft Tissue Surgery: Self-Assessment Color Review provides readers the opportunity to briefly, yet thoroughly, review key soft tissue surgical concepts in the field. The target audience for this book includes surgery residents and interns, small animal surgeons who want to assess and refresh their knowledge, and general practitioners with a strong interest in surgery. The authors provide readers with information about actual clinical cases for self-assessment. The case presentations include excellent-quality images and questions that are concise and appropriate followed by detailed answers. I particularly appreciated the attention the authors paid to review of the perioperative management of patients with various conditions, especially the discussion of pertinent results from blood gas analysis, medications that should and should not be administered, critical care, and physiologic concerns associated with surgery. Although the format of this edition is the same as that of the first edition, each case has been updated with appropriate information and literature citations. The price of the book is fair, particularly considering the excellent quality of the images. This book is an ideal resource for surgery residents in preparation for the board certification examination. 041b061a72
