Practical and clear, this comprehensive guide to cranio-sacral treatment of the face explains treatment approaches that can make a significant difference to persistent and intractable conditions, enabling profound transformation in quality of life through whole-person integration.

CT Anatomy for Radiotherapy

Published: 20 March, 2017

Since it was originally published in 2010, CT Anatomy for Radiotherapy has been an invaluable aid to a wide variety of radiotherapy professionals, both qualified and in training. This second edition has many welcome additions and updates, while retaining its original user-friendly format. All essential structures relevant to radiotherapy are described and depicted on 3D images generated from radiotherapy planning systems. System-based labelled CT images, taken in relevant imaging planes and patient positions, build up understanding of relational anatomy and CT interpretation; and all images are accompanied by comprehensive commentary. This simplified approach enables the reader to gain image interpretation skills quickly and easily. The second edition of CT Anatomy for Radiotherapy supports radiotherapy staff as they play a more active part in structure outlining and increasingly routine cone-beam CT verification. The text has been updated throughout, to reflect recent changes in technology and practice, and the reader is further supported with additional self-test questions and more interesting pathology examples. There is new information on safety in CT, use of contrast and minimising the impact of artefacts; and the dedicated lymph node sections have been refreshed, with detailed delineation of common nodal regions. New dedicated ‘Structure Focus’ sections concentrate on anatomical structures that are challenging yet clinically relevant for trial protocols or included in updated guidelines, including the penile bulb, coronary arteries, brachial plexus and complex supra-sellar regions. The unique combination of the authors’ knowledge of both current and emerging radiotherapy requirements and CT image interpretation has again produced an accessible and highly relevant text that provides sufficient detail to satisfy the most inquisitive of students and support radiotherapy practice for a wide range of professionals.

Blood Results in Clinical Practice

Published: 25 March, 2013

This book was written after feedback suggested that stories and analogies were very helpful to students wanting to remember blood tests and their implications. For this reason each section, where appropriate, contains an analogy, in addition to an overview of the relevant anatomy, physiology and biochemistry. The book links tests and conditions, and gives strategies for clinical practice using simple language. It will be useful as a supplementary text for those studying nursing, healthcare and medicine. It will also provide a quick-reference handbook for working healthcare professionals. Finally, it will provide a resource for patients and their relatives who may be keen to know more about the meaning and function of a particular blood test.
