Multimodal Retinal Imaging

Author: Chopdar Amresh, Aung Tin

This book, Multimodal Retinal Imaging, deals with retinal imaging. Retinal imaging techniques have expanded in leaps and bounds from the early days of colour fundus photography and fundus fluorescein angiography to a multitude of newer techniques. Ophthalmologists need to continually update their skills to adapt to these newer techniques. The content is divided into two sections: techniques (chapters 1–7) and interpretation of retinal disorders (chapters 8–15). Each chapter is generously illustrated to help the reader become familiar with the technical aspects of both image acquisition and disease recognition. It contains fifteen chapters on all aspects of retinal imaging. Each chapter is ordered in a consistent format; for example, the technique-based chapters all include appropriate information on the anatomical and physiological background as well as aspects of the optical, physical and biochemical principles behind the imaging techniques. This book provides both trainee and practising ophthalmologists, as well as ophthalmic photographic technicians, with the skills needed to apply the varied techniques used in everyday clinical practice and accurately interpret the results obtained.

M.D. Aysegul Yildiz; M.D. Pedro Ruiz; M.D. charles B. Nemeroff, Ph.D.
>As a major mainstay of clinical focus and research today, bipolar disorder affects millions of individuals across the globe with its extreme and erratic shifts of mood, thinking and behavior.

Featuring 45 chapters from an expert team of contributors from around the world, The Bipolar Book delves deep into the origins of the disorder and how it informs clinical practice today by focusing on such topics as bipolar disorder occurring in special populations, stigmatization of the disease, the role genetics play, postmortem studies, psychotherapy, treatments and more. Designed to be the definitive reference volume for clinicians, students and researchers, Aysegl Yildiz, Pedro Ruiz and Charles Nemeroff present The Bipolar Book as a “must have” for those caregivers who routinely deal with this devastating disease.

The Maudsley Handbook of Practical Psychiatry

Gareth Owen; Simon Wessely; Robin Murray
>The Maudsley Handbook of Practical Psychiatry has long served trainees in psychiatry, presenting them with practical and essential advice. This new edition of the handbook, perhaps better known as the ‘orange book’, provides guidance on the psychiatric and neuropsychiatric examination and interviewing of adults and children – not just a central skill, but the basis for reaching a diagnosis and defining a treatment plan. It also covers special interview situations, such as dealing with specific patient reactions, and other special problems, for example, conducting a complicated assessment in cases of autism or self-harm. The book concludes with important legal and service organisation issues. As with previous editions, the new edition has been revised and rewritten with the full and active involvement of a group of consultant psychiatrists and trainees.

The Oxford Handbook of Depression and Comorbidity

C. Steven Richards; Michael W. O’Hara
>Depression is frequently associated with other psychiatric disorders and is often related to chronic health problems. Depressive symptoms are also common in chronically distressed close relationships and severe interpersonal difficulties in families and at work. The topic of depressive comorbidity is clearly very important, and while recent research in this area has been methodologically sophisticated, well presented, and inherently interesting, there has not been a comprehensive, academic resource that covers recent developments in this area.
The Oxford Handbook of Depression and Comorbidity brings together scholarly contributions from world-class researchers to present a careful and empirically based review of depressive comorbidity. Cutting-edge chapters address theory, research, and practice, while capturing the diversity, evidence-base, and importance of depressive comorbidity. Specific topics include the comorbidity between depression and PTSD, alcohol use, and eating, anxiety, panic, bipolar, personality, and sleep disorders, as well as schizophrenia, suicide, cardiovascular disease, cancer, pain, obesity, intimate relationships, and many more. The Oxford Handbook of Depression and Comorbidity is a unique and much-needed resource that will be helpful to a broad range of researchers and practitioners including clinical and counseling psychologists, psychiatrists, marital and family therapists, social workers, and counselors working in mental-health and general health-care settings, as well as students in these areas.
