Jespersen, J.; Bertina, R.M.
Offering a description of current and recently developed laboratory assays in the field of haemostasis and thrombosis, this work is the result of a co-operation between experts from more than 60 institutes in 12 European countries, brought together by the ECAT (European Concerted Action on Thrombosis and Disabilities) under the auspices of the Commission of the European Communities in Brussels. The work is based on two previous editions, which were for internal use only. Each assay was assessed by an expert who functioned in the ECAT as representative of a reference laboratory. An assay committee co-ordinated the activities, and each chapter is written by an assay expert. Most of the chapters give descriptions of the assay recommended for use in the ECAT and briefly mention alternatives. For this reason, a list is included of firms that are commercializing kits and reagents. The book aims to contribute to further harmonization of haemostasis assays and, ultimately, to their standardization. N.B.Slight fading to spine,slightly marked at base of spine.230pp.

Maas, Marnix C.
Molecular imaging techniques enable the visualization of biological processes in living organisms. These techniques rely on synthetic biomolecules ('tracers') that specifically target a physiological process of interest without significantly disturbing it, and that poses some property which allows them to be detected externally. If the detectable property is radioactivity, the molecules are referred to as radiotracers, and the imaging technique is referred to as nuclear imaging. The aims of the research presented in this work are to determine the spatial resolution experimentally, the energy resolution and time resolution attainable with monolithic scintillator detectors, to analyze the dependence of these detector properties on physical quantities such as the scintillator light yield, the APD gain and the noise characteristics of the front-end electronics, and to predict the performance of a small animal PET system based on these detectors. The research presented in this publication is primarily based on experimental work on prototype detector modules. Simulation studies have been carried out in parallel; these are presented elsewhere. Some of the results of these simulation studies are also used in this work. 168pp. N.B. Small crease to bottom corner of rear cover.

Pearce, Oliver
This book represents a review of all the subjects with which a junior doctor needs to be effortlessly conversant in their postgraduate surgical exams in order to qualify as a specialist trainee. It covers a full range of subjects, concisely written to aid the revision process and includes basic science, physiology, anatomy, examination techniques, operative surgery and clinical surgery topics. The latter two sections are further subdivided into their relevant surgical speciality for clarity and ease of learning: general surgery, orthopaedics, vascular surgery, ENT surgery, breast and endocrine surgery, and urology.The physiology section is further sub-divided into the following areas: respiratory, cardiac, renal, gastrointestinal, endocrine, and general. The purpose of the book is to pull together the main subject areas to provide a coherent overview of the facts, as well as the principles, which examiners are looking for when deciding whether a doctor has the requisite skills and knowledge to proceed further with their training in surgery as a specialist. It contains essential required information, which would otherwise take months to gather by reading a variety of textbooks, each one specifically aimed at its own specialist topic.N.B.Spine slightly bumped.418pp.

Yokoi-Arai, Mamiko
Drawing on a range of material including exploration of international standards and "best practices" in banking and finance, the experience of the US and the UK in planning and implementing reform measures, and the theoretical literature analyzing financial crises and what causes them, this text analyzes the specific financial reforms in four Asian countries: Japan, Indonesia, South Korea and Thailand. Included are "lessons to be learned" about crisis detection, containment and prevention. During the course of the analysis, the author reveals fundamental policy areas where meaningful and effective reform can take place. 365pp.

Martorino, Louis; Puopolo, Karl
Human activities are changing habitats, the chemistry of the Earth's atmosphere and water, rate and balance of biogeochemical processes and diversity of life on the earth. This book examines the effects of metal contaminants in natural ecosystems, which are diverse, complex and often unpredictable. Establishing relationships between organism metal exposure, internal dose and associated biological effects is necessary to understand the fate and effects of metals in the environment. Furthermore, the study of marine planktonic protists in the nano-size range (2-20 um) is of great importance as these microorganisms are essential constituents of marine ecosystems and responsible for key trophic processes in the microbial food web. This book presents a comprehensive compilation of the taxonomy of these microorganisms with emphasis on their size range. Current and potential taxonomic tools for the identification of nanophytoplanktonic protists are also outlined. In addition, this book examines sediment records, that can provide much information on the paleoproductivity in past ecosystems, historical records of nutrients supplied and long term potential environmental impacts. Other chapters explore recent advances in sounding technology that use airborne optical techniques to examine seafloor topography, and innovative regional habitat creation programmes developed to plan and manage the delivery of habitat creations, and to protect or enhance the environment. 318pp.
