Neurovascular Examination: The Rapid Evaluation of Stroke by Andrei V. Alexandrov

By Andrei V. Alexandrov

Using neurovascular ultrasound is of accelerating significance in neurological perform, either for radiologists and more and more by way of neurologists themselves. Written by way of the world’s most famous professional, this booklet explains

  • ultrasound exam of a stroke patient
  • scanning protocols
  • interpretation of the results

Case examples (with a customary template presentation correlating presentation to waveform output) make stronger the book's useful nature.

Illustrated with images of the exams, factors, and with real waveforms, photographs, and outcome interpretation, and more desirable with 'pearls' and 'avoiding pitfalls' good points, it's a functional reference for these studying ultrasound in addition to these utilizing ultrasound of their practices.

Histotechnik: Praxislehrbuch für die Biomedizinische Analytik

Dieses einmalige Buch zur Histotechnik stellt die unterschiedlichen Techniken, die in einem histologischen exertions angewandt werden, umfassend vor. Diese zweite überarbeitete und aktualisierte Ausgabe wurde um Techniken ergänzt, die in den letzten Jahren entwickelt wurden. So finden sich neben Basisthemen wie Fixierung, Gewebe-Processing und Färbung, die Grundlagen der Immunhistochemie und in-situ-Hybridisierung sowie aktuelle Kapitel zur Molekularpathologie.

Holographic Sensors

This thesis provides a theoretical and experimental process for the quick fabrication, optimization and trying out of holographic sensors for the quantification of pH, natural solvents, steel cations, and glucose in strategies. constructing non-invasive and reusable diagnostics sensors that may be simply synthetic will help the tracking of high-risk members in any medical or point-of-care atmosphere.
