Abstract
This atlas draws on a multidisciplinary approach to provide a comprehensive overview on endocrine disorders of the head and neck, with particular emphasis on the role of imaging and image-guided procedures. The first section discusses the basic characteristics of the imaging methods and other techniques used for evaluation and diagnosis. The remainder of the book focuses on application of these methods in thyroid, parathyroid, and other endocrine disorders of the head and neck. The coverage is wide ranging, encompassing Graves' disease, toxic multinodular goiter, toxic adenoma, thyroiditis, non-toxic goiter, benign nodules, and the different forms of thyroid carcinoma, as well as parathyroid adenoma, hyperplasia, and carcinoma and paragangliomas. Informative, high-quality images are provided by international experts in endocrine disorders, including endocrinologists, pathologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and surgeons, who also discuss sample cases and provide syntheses of the relevant scientific literature.
Contents
Part I: Basic Characteristics of Imaging Methods and Other Techniques for Evaluation of Neck Endocrine Diseases -- Ultrasonography -- Nuclear Medicine Techniques -- Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging -- Interventional Techniques -- Pathology -- Part II: Thyroid Diseases -- Graves' Disease -- Thyroid Autonomy -- Thyroiditis -- Non-Toxic Uninodular Goiter -- Non-Toxic Multinodular Goiter -- Well-Differentiated Thyroid Carcinoma -- Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma -- Anaplastic Carcinoma and Other Tumors -- Part III: Parathyroid Diseases -- Primary Hyperparathyroidism -- Part IV: Other Endocrine Diseases of the Neck -- Head and Neck Paragangliomas -- Other Neuroendocrine Tumors of Head and Neck Region.

Abstract
Endocrine Emergencies: Recognition and Treatment offers a state-of-the-art update on the management of endocrine, diabetic, and metabolic emergencies. Developed by renowned experts, this comprehensive and easy to read title brings the field fully up to date, setting a high standard for diagnosis and treatment in each category. All chapters begin with a summary that presents, in concentrated form, what the physician needs to know to begin the evaluation and emergency treatment of the known endocrine emergencies. This is followed by an extended discussion of the pathophysiology that can be read after initial treatment has begun. Covering such areas as hypoglycemia, acute adrenal insufficiency, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, thyroid storm, and pituitary apoplexy, just to name several, Endocrine Emergencies: Recognition and Treatment is an invaluable, practical resource that will be of great interest to endocrinologists, internal medicine and emergency room physicians, fellows and residents.

Abstract
This book assembles a number of real-life clinical cases that illustrate aspects of both diabetes and endocrinology. The cases are described as they may present to the clinician, followed by a series of questions that illustrate the clinical problem and provide background information. All of the clinical vignettes presented have been written by practising physicians and surgeons who encountered these patients in their day-to-day practice. Some represent common presentations of relatively rare conditions, whilst others describe uncommon presentations of more familiar disorders. Endocrinology and Diabetes: Case Studies, Questions and Commentaries will appeal to both trainees in diabetes and endocrinology and more experienced practitioners alike, providing an alternative approach to cover a wide variety of clinical scenarios.

Abstract
The Editors and contributors of this book take seriously the statement that 'For all of the science inherent in the specialty of pediatric critical care medicine, there is still art in providing comfort and solace to our patients and their families. No technology will ever replace the compassion in the touch of a hand or the soothing words of a calm and gentle voice.' The four volumes of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine: Basic Science and Clinical Evidence, 2nd Edition detail the continued growth and evolution of the pediatric critical care medicine speciality. They reveal the technological innovations in monitoring and information management and gives witness to the rapid evolution and adoption of novel monitoring techniques, such as continuous venous oximetry and near-infrared spectroscopy. They also cover advances in molecular biology that have led to the era of personalized medicine with the ability to individualize treatment to the unique and specific needs of a patient. As such this volume and its three sister titles will be of immense value to all studying and practicing pediatric critical care medicine or those involved in the management of this group of patients.
