Image Guided Radiation Therapy Physics and Technology


English | 2022 | ISBN: 978-0750333610 | 308 pages | True PDF EPUB | 32.46 MB
This book provides the reader with an in-depth knowledge of physics principles and technology of Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) that is changing the way radiotherapy is practiced. The book aims to cover from the historical methods of using radiographic films for image guidance to the recent state of the art Magnetic Resonance image guided Radiotherapy (MRgRT) thus providing the reader an historical perspective to the evolution of IGRT technology. Each chapter provides the physics principles, the technological development and the image guidance workflow and the quality assurance procedures as required. The book is aimed at academics and students of medical physics and radiation oncology as well as the other disciplines that use radiation treatment such as neurosurgery.

Image Atlas of COVID-19


English | 2022 | ISBN: 0443184933 | 183 pages | True PDF EPUB | 41.65 MB
Image Atlas of COVID-19 covers this novel and emerging respiratory infectious disease. Although the gold standard for clinical diagnosis of COVID-19 remains the nucleic acid test for SARS-CoV-2, chest CT scans have been widely used in the diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19 as simple and fast diagnostic methods. The latter has proven crucial when faced with a large volume of symptomatic and asymptomatic patients. The imaging manifestations of COVID-19 have some specific characteristics, hence a better understanding of imaging findings is of great value for detecting lesions, evaluating lesion severity, diagnosis and differential diagnosis, and assessment of therapeutic options and prognosis.

Hydrodynamic Lubrication of Non-Newtonian Fluids


English | 2022 | ISBN: 0323994776 | 329 pages | True PDF EPUB | 27.02 MB
Hydrodynamic Lubrication of Non-Newtonian Fluids covers basic theory, lubrication failure and numerical methods and procedures. The title offers a feasible method for solving the hydrodynamic lubrication problem for non-Newtonian fluids. Whereas hydrodynamic lubrication in Newtonian fluids can be solved using the existing Reynolds equation, hydrodynamic lubrication in non-Newtonian fluid is much more difficult to solve because the non-Newtonian constitutive equation is nonlinear. Engineers and technicians working on non-Newtonian fluid lubrication calculation and analysis will find this to be an invaluable reference on the latest thinking on hydrodynamic lubrication.
