Abstract
In 1994 the European Society of Urogenital Radiology (ESUR) set up a committee to consider the safety of contrast media used for diagnostic imaging. Subsequently the committee questioned ESUR members, reviewed the literature, proposed guidelines, and discussed these proposals with participants at the annual symposia of the society. The end result of this work was the successful first edition of this book, published in 2006, which was followed by an equally successful second edition in 2009. This third edition not only fully updates the previous edition, but also includes new chapters on complex topics such as use of contrast media in children and practical aspects of off-label contrast media use. The authorship includes members, past members, and non-members of the Contrast Media Safety Committee. Comprehensive consideration is given to the many different safety issues relating to iodine-based contrast media, gadolinium-based contrast media, microbubbles for ultrasound, and barium sulfate. The text includes chapters on both acute and delayed non-renal adverse reactions and on renal adverse reactions. All of the questions frequently raised in radiological practice are addressed. This book, presented in a handy, easy-to-use format, provides an invaluable, unique, and unparalleled source of information.
Contents
General Issues: Classification and Terminology -- Requests for Imaging using contrast agents: What information must be provided -- Off-label use of medicines: legal aspects -- Off-label use of contrast media: practical aspects -- Pharmacovigilance: When to report adverse reactions to contrast media -- What is required to get the authorities to approve a new contrast medium? -- A critical review of meta-analysis of adverse events after contrast media -- Iodine- and Gadolinium-Based Contrast Media: General Adverse Reactions: Acute adverse reactions to contrast media: Mechanisms and prevention -- Iodine-based contrast medium temperature and adverse reactions -- Management of acute adverse reactions to contrast media -- Renal Adverse reactions:Chronic kidney disease, serum creatinine and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) -- Contrast medium-induced nephropathy -- Dialysis and contrast media -- Other adverse effects: Pregnancy and lactation: intravascular use of contrast media -- Pheochromocytoma and contrast media -- Contrast media and interactions with other drugs and clinical tests -- Contrast media extravasation injury -- Iodine-based contrast media: Late adverse reactions to iodine-based contrast media -- Effects of iodine-based contrast media on blood and endothelium -- Effects of iodine-based contrast media on thyroid function -- Pulmonary effects of iodine-based contrast media -- MR contrast media: Gadolinium chelates and stability -- Diagnostic efficacy of gadolinium-based contrast media -- Radiography with gadolinium-based contrast media -- Acute adverse reactions to gadolinium-based contrast media -- Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis and gadolinium- based contrast media -- Organ specific gadolinium-based contrast media -- Ultrasonographic Contrast media -- Barium Preparations: Barium preparations: safety issues -- Pediatric use of Contrast Media: Contrast media use in pediatrics: Safety issues -- Appendix: ESUR Guidelines on Contrast Media Version 8.1 -- Official publications from the Contrast Media Safety Committee of the European Society of Urogenital Radiology.

Abstract
Defining organs at risk is a crucial task for radiation oncologists when aiming to optimize the benefit of radiation therapy, with delivery of the maximum dose to the tumor volume while sparing healthy tissues. This book will prove an invaluable guide to the delineation of organs at risk of toxicity in patients undergoing radiotherapy. The first and second sections address the anatomy of organs at risk, discuss the pathophysiology of radiation-induced damage, and present dose constraints and methods for target volume delineation. The third section is devoted to the radiological anatomy of organs at risk as seen on typical radiotherapy planning CT scans, with a view to assisting the radiation oncologist to recognize and delineate these organs for each anatomical region head and neck, mediastinum, abdomen, and pelvis. The book is intended both for young radiation oncologists still in training and for their senior colleagues wishing to reduce intra-institutional variations in practice and thereby to standardize the definition of clinical target volumes.
Contents
Introduction -- Part I. Anatomy and Physiopathology of Radiation-Induced Damage to Organs at Risk -- Brain, Head and Neck -- Mediastinum -- Abdomen -- Pelvis -- Part II. Modeling and Organ Delineation in Radiation Therapy -- Radiation Dose Constraints for Organs at Risk: Modeling and Importance of Organ Delineation in Radiation Therapy -- Volumetric Acquisition: Technical Notes -- Part III. Axial CT Radiological Anatomy: Image Gallery -- Brain, Head and Neck -- Mediastinum -- Abdomen -- Male Pelvis -- Female Pelvis -- Appendix: Digitally Reconstructed Radiographs.

Abstract
Despite the evolution and growing awareness of patient safety, many medical professionals are not a part of this important conversation. Clinicians often believe they are too busy taking care of patients to adopt and implement patient safety initiatives and that acknowledging medical errors is an affront to their skills. Patient Safety provides clinicians with a better understanding of the prevalence, causes and solutions for medical errors; bringing best practice principles to the bedside. Written by experts from a variety of backgrounds, each chapter features an analysis of clinical cases based on the Root Cause Analysis (RCA) methodology, along with case-based discussions on various patient safety topics. The systems and processes outlined in the book are general and broadly applicable to institutions of all sizes and structures. The core ethic of medical professionals is to do no harm. Patient Safety is a comprehensive resource for physicians, nurses and students, as well as healthcare leaders and administrators for identifying, solving and preventing medical error.
