Abstract
This book introduces an exciting new method for breast ultrasound diagnostics: automated whole-breast volume scanning (3D ABVS). Scanning technique is described in detail, with guidance on scanning positions and protocols. Imaging findings are then illustrated and discussed for normal breast variants, the different forms of breast cancer, fibroadenomas, cystic disease, benign and malignant male breast disorders, mastitis, breast implants, and postoperative breast scars. In order to aid appreciation of the benefits of 3D ABVS, comparisons with findings on X-ray mammography and conventional 2D hand-held US are presented. Readers will be especially impressed by the convincing demonstration of the advantages of the new method for diagnosis of breast cancer in women with dense glandular tissue. In enabling readers to learn how to perform and interpret 3D ABVS, this book will be of great value for all who are embarking on its use. It will also serve as a welcome reference for radiologists, oncologists, and ultrasonographers who already have some familiarity with the technique.
Contents
1. The History of ABVS -- 2. Current Status of ABVS -- 3. 3D ABVS Technique on ACUSON S2000 ABVS -- 4. Clinical Application of ABVS for Breast Studies -- 5. Limitations of ABVS Technique -- 6. Conclusion.

Abstract
This atlas presents outstanding three-dimensional (3D) echocardiographic images of structural heart diseases, including congenital and valvular diseases and cardiac masses and tumors. The aim is to enable the reader to derive maximum diagnostic and treatment benefit from the modality through optimal image acquisition and interpretation. To this end a wide range of instructive individual cases are depicted, with sequential arrangement of all images and views of diagnostic value, including 3D zoom, full-volume, and live 3D images. For each case, a key lesson is highlighted and attention is drawn to aspects of relevance to diagnosis and treatment. In addition, readers will have online access to echocardiographic video clips for each patient. The closing part of the book examines the role of 3D echocardiography in structural heart disease interventions. The superb quality of the illustrations and the range of cases considered ensure that this atlas will be an excellent visual learning tool and an ideal aid for cardiology residents and fellows in day-to-day clinical practice.

Abstract
This book describes the fundamentals of three-dimensional (3D) printing, addresses the practical aspects of establishing a 3D printing service in a medical facility, and explains the enormous potential value of rendering images as 3D printed models capable of providing tactile feedback and tangible information on both anatomic and pathologic states. Individual chapters also focus on selected areas of applications for 3D printing, including musculoskeletal, craniomaxillofacial, cardiovascular, and neurosurgery applications. Challenges and opportunities related to training, materials and equipment, and guidelines are addressed, and the overall costs of a 3D printing lab and the balancing of these costs against clinical benefits are discussed. Radiologists, surgeons, and other physicians will find this book to be a rich source of information on the practicalities and expanding medical applications of 3D printing.

Abstract
This color atlas and manual provides clinicians with systematic, standardized, but also individualized step-by-step guidance on 3D virtual diagnosis, treatment planning, and outcome assessment in patients undergoing orthognathic surgery for maxillofacial deformities. Drawing on 20 years of experience, the authors elucidate the clinical potential of the approach while also highlighting current pitfalls and limitations. The opening two chapters discuss the 3D imaging workflow and its integration into daily clinical routine and comprehensively describe cone-beam CT virtual diagnosis. The stepwise 3D virtual planning of orthognathic surgery and transfer of the 3D virtual treatment plan to the patient in the operating room are then thoroughly explained, and the unprecedented potential of 3D virtual evaluation of treatment outcome, documented. Finally, after provision of all this essential background information, the closing chapter illustrates the application of the 3D virtual approach in different types of maxillofacial deformity. Orthodontists and orthognathic and orthofacial surgeons will find 3D Virtual Treatment Planning of Orthognathic Surgery to be a superb guide and resource.
