Image Processing for Atrial Fibrillation Ablation Procedures ab 89.9 EURO Image Processing for Fluoroscopy Guided Atrial Fibrillation Ablation Procedures
This book is timely because of the increasing popularity of minimally invasive and cost effective methods to ablate solid tumors. Medical image guided ablation using thermal energy sources such as radio-frequency, microwave, laser, high-intensity focused ultrasound, and cyrogenics have received much recent attention as minimally invasive strategies for the ablation of tumors. This text describes novel and practical image registration methods and mathematical models to predict the cellular response from magnetic resonance (MR) images, which guide and monitor therapy. Many clinical and animal model studies seeking to characterize the biological response to thermal ablations, localized drug release, and other MRI-guided therapies would benefit from this book. This text should be especially useful for medical, engineering, applied mathematics, physics, and computer science students, researchers, and clinicians.
Few fields of medicine have witnessed such impressive progress as the diagnosis and treatment of liver tumors. Advances in imaging technology, the development of novel contrast agents, and the introduction of optimized scanning protocols have greatly facilitated the non-invasive detection and characterization of focal liver lesions. Furthermore, image-guided techniques for percutaneous tumor ablation have become an accepted alternative treatment for patients with inoperable liver cancer. This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the role of diagnostic and interventional radiology in respect of liver tumors. The volume moves from background sections on methodology and segmental liver anatomy to the main sections on the diagnosis of benign and malignant liver lesions. An integrated approach, focused on the correlation of ultrasound, CT, and MR imaging findings, is presented. Finally, a full section describes the principles, methods, and results of percutaneous tumor ablation techniques.
This book is a concise introduction to the interventional radiology field and is designed to help medical students and residents understand the fundamental concepts related to image-guided interventional procedures and determine the appropriate use of imaging modalities in the treatment of various disorders. It covers the history of interventional radiology, radiation safety, equipment, medications, and techniques such as biopsy and drainage, vascular access, embolization, and tumor ablation. The book also describes the indications, patient preparation, post-procedure care, and complications for the most common interventional radiology procedures.
