Although a very common reason for presentation to both dermatologists and primary care physicians, many practitioners fail to control symptoms adequately.

Abstract
Generalized dermatitis is often chronic and debilitating. Many cases are multifactorial, which makes diagnosis and targeted treatment difficult. Although a very common reason for presentation to both dermatologists and primary care physicians, many practitioners fail to control symptoms adequately. Generalized Dermatitis in Clinical Practice summarizes the diagnostic and management options of this complex, multifactorial, and often chronic disease. Distilling a wealth of clinical insight, the author reviews the pathophysiology and differential diagnosis in the context of patient management. This concise clinical reference is an ideal way for dermatologists, allergists, and primary care physicians to approach the patient suffering from widespread dermatitis.

Generally CT images associated to a PET scan are acquired in a low-dose modality and therefore turn out to be suboptimal for CT image interpretation. Sometimes a comparison with a full-resolution and contrast- enhanced CT atlas may be difficult. Low-dose CT slices are thicker than diagnostic CT and poorer in anatomical details, and this affects the accuracy in recognizing both anatomical structures and pathological findings.

Abstract
Generally CT images associated to a PET scan are acquired in a low-dose modality and therefore turn out to be suboptimal for CT image interpretation. Sometimes a comparison with a full-resolution and contrast- enhanced CT atlas may be difficult. Low-dose CT slices are thicker than diagnostic CT and poorer in anatomical details, and this affects the accuracy in recognizing both anatomical structures and pathological findings. This atlas provides a “normal anatomy” chapter that is built on low-dose CT images from PET/CT standard acquisition, identifying all the relevant anatomical structures detectable without contrast media administration that can help in accurately describing all FDG-positive fi ndings extension. Other chapters (thorax, abdomen, pelvis, musculoskeletal system) present cases with common and uncommon FDG-negative anatomical abnormalities. All the images can be directly compared to the CT images acquired on standard PET/CT.--Preface.

Abstract
Generations of residents and general surgeons have relied upon and worn out their copies of Surgical Anatomy and Technique: A Pocket Manual. Thoroughly revised and with dozens of new illustrations, the fourth edition continues the tradition of providing a concise, accessible, and generously illustrated memory refresher for both novice and experienced clinicians. The editors have included techniques to keep the content fresh, relevant, and practice-based. Among the new topics are hand surgery, a section on central venous access, and creating an AV fistula for dialysis. All the existing chapters have been updated and expanded to reflect current surgical approaches and instrumentation. This fourth edition of Surgical Anatomy and Technique: A Pocket Manual provides the gold standard in correlating clear, practical anatomy with the correct technique in the pursuit of the best possible patient outcomes. This handy pocket manual remains a "must have" for every resident and general surgeon.

Abstract
Genetic testing has become commonplace, and clinicians are frequently able to use knowledge of an individual's specific genetic differences to guide their course of action. Molecular Genetics and Personalized Medicine highlights developments that have been made in the field of molecular genetics and how they have been applied clinically. It will serve as a useful reference for physicians hoping to better understand the role of molecular medicine in clinical practice. In addition, it should also prove to be an invaluable resource for the basic scientist that wants to better understand how advances in the laboratory are being moved from the bench to the bedside. All chapters are written by experts in their fields and include the most up to date medical information. The authors simplify complex genetic concepts and focus on practical patient related issues. The book will be of great value to pathologists, hematologists/oncologists, clinical geneticists, high-risk obstetricians, general practitioners, and physicians in all other medical specialties who utilize genetic testing to direct therapy.

Abstract
Genius and dilettantism often go hand in hand. Nowhere is this truer than in the life of Charles-Edouard Brown-Séquard, the bilingual physician and neurologist who succeeded Claude Bernard as the Chair of Experimental Medicine at the College de France in Paris after having practiced in Paris, London and in the USA, especially in Harvard. For most men, making one discovery of global importance would have sufficed to satisfy their curiosity and self-image. Not so Brown-Séquard. His explanation of the neurological disparity following the hemi-section of the spinal cord was a unique achievement that added his name to the syndrome and made him immortal. Yet, the demons of his mind tormented him in his endless search for medical truths and drove him to explore other phenomena, seeking to explain and remedy them. This unique biography shows for the first time the conflict between his professional and personal life, and should appeal to all students of medical history and psychology.
