Both surgical skill and histological preparation and evaluation are important for successful treatment of various malignant skin tumors. In addition, good knowledge of local patterns of infiltration is required to achieve complete excision. All tumors may show an irregular, often asymmetric, mainly horizontal subclinical infiltration with a wide extent. When deep infiltrations are present, they are also often asymmetric and hard to determine before excision. Until recently these tumor outgrowth…

Abstract
Both surgical skill and histological preparation and evaluation are important for successful treatment of various malignant skin tumors. In addition, good knowledge of local patterns of infiltration is required to achieve complete excision. All tumors may show an irregular, often asymmetric, mainly horizontal subclinical infiltration with a wide extent. When deep infiltrations are present, they are also often asymmetric and hard to determine before excision. Until recently these tumor outgrowths have only been detectable using histologic evaluation, but 3D histology is highly sensitive and can detect even very small tumor infiltrations. Very narrow margins can thus be taken for excision, which helps spare healthy skin as only a subsequently targeted re-excision will be necessary to remove all of the asymmetric tumor infiltrations. Therefore the resulting defect will be as small as possible and as large as necessary, and can be adapted to the requirements for aesthetic surgical defect closure. 3D Histology Evaluation of Dermatologic Surgery compares the most commonly used methods in order to give the reader a graphical overview of the current state-of-the-art. The basic principles of various surgical methods and histological workups of the complete 3D tumor margins are described and extensively illustrated to allow better understanding. Furthermore, more complex treatments of larger tumors are also included. Therefore, this book will be vital for all involved in the management of these patients, including practicing and trainee dermatologists, ENT, plastic and facial-surgeons, pathologists and oncologists.

Abstract
This book is designed to provide the reader with a full understanding of the role of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in helping to solve many of the most challenging problems in endodontics. It will shorten the learning curve in application of this exciting imaging technique in a variety of contexts: difficult diagnostic cases, treatment planning, evaluation of internal tooth anatomy prior to root canal therapy, nonsurgical and surgical treatments, early detection and treatment of resorptive defects, and outcomes assessment. The ability to obtain an accurate 3D representation of a tooth and the surrounding structures by means of noninvasive CBCT imaging is changing the approach to clinical decision making in endodontics. Clinicians long accustomed to working in very small, three-dimensional spaces are no longer constrained by the limitations of two-dimensional imaging. The challenges of mastering the new technology can, however, be daunting. The detailed guidance contained in this book will help endodontists to take full advantage of the important benefits offered by CBCT.
Contents
Principles of Cone Beam Computed Tomography -- Utilization of Cone Beam Computed Tomography in Endodontic Diagnosis -- The Impact of Cone Beam Computed Tomography in Non-surgical and Surgical Treatment Planning -- Three dimensional evaluation of internal tooth anatomy -- Non-surgical treatment utilizing Cone Beam Computed Tomography -- Surgical Treatment Utilizing Cone Beam Computed Tomography -- The Use of Cone Beam Computed Tomography in the Diagnosis and Management of Root Resorption.

This book is intended to present current clinical information to several groups: - Busy clinical practitioners in neurology general practice, emergency rooms, and non-neurologic specialties who need a reference source where they can quickly refresh their knowledge about the basics of a neurologic condition - Residents and students seeking rapid access to basic data about diagnosis and treatment for various neurologic conditions - Patients and families who want quick information about their diagnoses and referrals to patient information sources and support organizations Neurology is an area of medicine that incites anxiety and discomfort for many students, nurses, and physicians who have not trained in the specialty. Effective therapeutic interventions continue to expand and flourish; every practitioner must understand the diagnosis and treatment of basic neurologic conditions. Information is provided in a structured format that allows easy access and rapid assimilation. We have attempted to offer relevant and current references. We hope that this rapid information source will help all to approach patients suffering from neurologic disorders with more confidence. "--Provided by publisher.
