Introduction to Medical Imaging Management
In the past, for the most part, people who moved into management positions in medical imaging were chosen because they were the best technologists. However, the skill set for technologists and supervisors/managers are vastly different. Even an MBA-educated person may not be ready to take on imaging management. As an example, when buying a very expensive piece of imaging equipment, this person would not necessarily know the right questions to ask, such as: What is my guaranteed uptime? Is technologist training included? Introduction to Medical Imaging Management is a comprehensive reference for medical imaging managers learning through a combination of education and experience. This thorough book provides an in-depth overview of every major facet pertaining to the knowledge and skills necessary to become a department or imaging center supervisor or manager. The text follows a natural progression from transitioning into a management position and dealing with former peers through the most sophisticated skills uniquely applicable to medical imaging management. Covering all aspects of the profession-operations, human resources, finance, and marketing-this reference is a must-have for any potential, new, or less experienced imaging manager.

Advanced Bayesian Methods for Medical Test Accuracy
Useful in many areas of medicine and biology, Bayesian methods are particularly attractive tools for the design of clinical trials and diagnostic tests, which are based on established information, usually from related previous studies. Advanced Bayesian Methods for Medical Test Accuracy begins with a review of the usual measures such as specificity, sensitivity, positive and negative predictive value, and the area under the ROC curve. Then the scope expands to cover the more advanced topics of verification bias, diagnostic tests with imperfect gold standards, and those for which no gold standard is available. Promoting accuracy and efficiency of clinical trials, tests, and the diagnostic process, this book: Enables the user to efficiently apply prior information via a WinBUGS package Presents many ideas for the first time and goes far beyond the two standard references Integrates reader agreement with different modalities-X-ray, CT Scanners, and more-to study their effect on medical test accuracy Provides practical chapter-end problems Useful for graduate students and consulting statisticians working in the various areas of diagnostic medicine and study design, this practical resource introduces the fundamentals of programming and executing BUGS, giving readers the tools and experience to successfully analyze studies for medical test accuracy.

More than two decades into the global HIV epidemic, many HIV positive patients who have access to antiretroviral medications are graying. These patients and their clinicians now face another set of complex health issues related to aging. HIV and Aging examines the known effects of HIV and HIV medications on older patients and on their immune systems. The book explores the coalescence of aging and HIV on neurologic, psychiatric, cardiovascular, endocrine, renal, and pulmonary systems and oncology. Written by some of today's top experts, HIV and Aging answers questions like: What are the similarities with immune system changes that occur with aging and those associated with HIV? What effects do HIV and HIV medications have on cardiovascular health? What do we know about drug interactions between antiretrovirals and medicines used to treat diseases of aging?

Food Allergy: Practical Diagnosis and Management
Food allergy has increased over the past two decades, with a larger number of patients presenting a myriad of related symptoms and illnesses to physicians and allied health professionals. The growing number of patients poses a challenge to health care providers and confirms the need for developing best clinical practice guidelines. Based on the Expert Panel Report from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Food Allergy: Practical Diagnosis and Management brings to life the developed guidelines with chapters written by international leaders in food allergy clinical care, research, and education, including most of the report's primary authors. Offering practical advice, each chapter provides clinically relevant information for everyday diagnosis and management of food allergies and related adverse reactions to foods. Chapters begin with clinical questions to focus readers and contain numerous case studies and Clinical Pearls to help formulate best practice approaches to patient care. The text provides information that is relevant for diagnosis, organ or diagnosis-specific concerns, daily management, and topics of importance for patient understanding and management of food allergies. Chapters cover clinical manifestations, triggers and cross-reactivity, acute reactions, and skin, gastrointestinal, and respiratory conditions associated with food allergy. Authors address diagnostic testing, pharmacologic reactions, allergy prevention, and the natural history of common food allergies. They also consider novel approaches to diagnosis and therapy for immunoglobulin E-mediated food allergy. The final chapter presents practical resources for physicians and patients, including materials for advising newly diagnosed patients and resources for managing food allergies at home, school, camp, restaurants, and while traveling.

Introduction to Clinical Nutrition
Dietary factors have been implicated in at least four of the ten leading causes of death in the U.S. (heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and stroke). Nevertheless, physicians frequently receive inadequate training in nutrition to properly counsel their patients. Introduction to Clinical Nutrition, Third Edition discusses the physiologic and metabolic interrelationships of all nutrients and their roles in health maintenance and the prevention of various diseases. Since the publication of the second edition of this book, new discoveries have revolutionized the field of clinical nutrition. This is true especially with respect to gene-nutrient interaction, epigenetic pathways that contribute to the activation and inactivation of gene expression, the relationship of nutrients to telomere length and health, and personalized nutrition. Highlighting these advances, new and revised topics include: Fiber, antioxidants, nutraceuticals, alternative medicine, and epidemiology DNA, gene-nutrient interaction, epigenetics, and telomeres Nutritional aspects of kidney disease, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome Personalized nutrition and personalized medicine Vegetarianism, the Mediterranean diet, and other popular dietary practices Obesity and cholesterol Designed as a textbook for students in conventional medicine, osteopathy, dentistry, dietetics, nursing, pharmacy, and public health, the book focuses on the critical biochemical and physiological aspects of nutrients. It includes clinical case studies to clarify topics at the end of most chapters and references to facilitate further study.

Dietary Protein and Resistance Exercise
Dietary supplement companies and the food industry spend millions to reach resistance trainers-often with exaggerated marketing messages-while health practitioners continue to counsel athletes that their interest in protein is misguided and even dangerous. There appears to be a disconnect between scientists and almost everyone else in sports nutrition. With so much conflicting information, it's difficult to know who to believe. With contributions from the world's foremost experts, Dietary Protein and Resistance Exercise delivers the uncut scientific truth about the role of dietary protein in the well-being of athletes. Updating and clarifying the issues surrounding purposeful protein intake and resistance trainers, this volume: Reviews the science-related history of protein and its consumption among strength athletes Analyzes the mechanisms behind what proteins do in muscle cells Describes protein's effect on performance, recovery, and body composition Explores various populations that actively employ resistance training and dietary protein Discusses timing, type, and safety data regarding liberal protein diets and related supplements Includes sidebars, practical examples, and case studies-translating the science into a practical understanding of various protein-related topics Separating fact from fiction and providing the hard science behind the numbers, this volume demonstrates how changes in dietary protein intake may lead to measurable improvements in body composition, energy levels, and athletic performance.
