Intraoperative Imaging and Image-Guided Therapy by Ferenc A. Jolesz

By Ferenc A. Jolesz

Image-guided treatment (IGT) makes use of imaging to enhance the localization and focusing on of diseased tissue and to watch and keep an eye on remedies. in the past decade, image-guided surgical procedures and image-guided minimally invasive interventions have emerged as advances that may be utilized in position of conventional invasive ways. complicated imaging applied sciences akin to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and positron emission tomography (PET) entered into working rooms and interventional suites to enrich already-available regimen imaging units like X-ray and ultrasound. while, navigational instruments, computer-assisted surgical procedure units, and image-guided robots additionally grew to become a part of the revolution in interventional radiology suites and the working room.

Intraoperative Imaging and Image-Guided Therapy explores the elemental, technical, and medical facets of state-of the-art image-guided remedies. It offers the fundamental suggestions of photograph counsel, the applied sciences considering treatment supply, and the detailed standards for the layout and development of image-guided working rooms and interventional suites. It additionally covers destiny advancements akin to molecular imaging-guided surgical procedures and novel leading edge cures like MRI-guided centred ultrasound surgical procedure.

IGT is a multidisciplinary and multimodality box during which groups of physicians, physicists, engineers, and machine scientists collaborate in acting those interventions, an technique that's mirrored within the association of the e-book. Contributing authors comprise individuals of the nationwide middle of Image-Guided remedy software at Brigham and Women’s health facility and foreign leaders within the box of IGT.

The publication comprises assurance of those topics:

- Imaging tools, information applied sciences, and the remedy supply structures at the moment used or in development.

- scientific purposes for IGT in a number of specialties akin to neurosurgery, ear-nose-and-throat surgical procedure, cardiovascular surgical procedure, endoscopies, and orthopedic systems.

- evaluation and comparability of the scientific makes use of for IGT with traditional tools by way of invasiveness, effectiveness, and outcome.

- standards for the layout and building of image-guided working rooms and interventional suites.
