The text is structured to present a logical approach to formulating a pathologic diagnosis from the diverse array of tissue received in the surgical pathology laboratory. Color illustrations show typical artifacts and distortion and explain their impact on diagnostic interpretation.

Breast MRI: A Practical Approach

Breast MRI: A Practical Approach

$211.99
View Product


MRI is increasingly being used by radiologists to confirm diagnoses and perform operative procedures of the breast. MRI's contrast between soft tissues in the breast is many times greater than that obtained by plain-film mammography. As opposed to x-rays, which are known to cause damage to cellular DNA, the magnetic fields and radiowaves used with MRI are not known to have any long-term biologic effect. MRI of the breast requires intravenous injection of a contrast agent, which helps highlight breast abnormalities. The American Cancer Society has advised women at high risk for breast cancer to have an MRI. This book, a collaboration between an experienced breast imager and a breast surgeon, contains 100 cases and covers high risk screening, extent of disease evaluation, as well as the full range of benign and malignant tumors found in the breast: DCIS, invasive ductal cancers, and invasive lobule cancers. Rare lesions such as phyllodes, mucinous, liposarcomas, and myotiboblastomas are

Audio-Visual Person Tracking: A Practical Approach

Audio-Visual Person Tracking: A Practical Approach

$85.00
View Product


This book deals with the creation of the algorithm backbone that enables a computer to perceive humans in a monitored space, by processing the signals that humans use in order to perform a task, i.e, audio and video. To do so, computers use sensors and algorithms to detect and track multiple interacting humans, by way of their faces and hands or their voices. This application domain is challenging, because audio and visual signals are cluttered by both background and foreground objects. After establishing particle filtering as the framework for tracking, audio, visual and also audiovisual tracking are then explained. Each method is analyzed, starting with sensor configurations, detection for tracker initialization and the trackers themselves. Techniques to fuse the modalities are then considered. Instead of offering a monolithic approach to the tracking problem, this book also focuses on implementation by providing MATLAB code for every presented component. This way, the reader can connect every presented concept with a corresponding piece of code that follows immediately after the theory. Finally, the applications of the various tracking systems in different domains are studied and considered.

Welcome to the world's most effective method of learning Mandarin This widely-acclaimed series continues to impress and inspire learners whether they're studying Chinese on their own, or in a classroom setting."Intermediate Spoken Chinese" and the corresponding Practice Essentials allow you to experience real-life situations in different Mandarin-speaking locales. Each of the common situations explored here-from shopping at a market to playing unexpected phone tag-is one you're most likely to encounter as you interact with Chinese speakers. The breakthrough foundation of these books is that you don't need to know the characters in order to speak Chinese. This series provides separate "tracks" to help you master the skills of speaking and writing Chinese at your own pace. Some learners place greater emphasis on reading and writing, while others focus on developing a knowledge of spoken Chinese first, and then learn the characters. Both approaches are perfectly valid, and the one you adopt will depend on your personal goals and the amount of time you have for weekly study. This series allows you total flexibility in this regard. An accompanying software program contains 56 videos shot on location. The software allows students to interact with the videos in various ways: to select/replay specific passages; to view the dialogues in Hanyu Pinyin, Simplified or Traditional characters as each line is spoken; and to mute a particular speaker's audio Additional key features of "Intermediate Spoken Chinese" Clear and detailed explanations of natural, colloquial Chinese pronunciation, grammar and usage Recommended strategies to help you learn to speak Chinese more efficiently Videos teach you real-life Chinese, the actual speaking styles of Chinese people in various parts of mainland China as well as Taiwan, Macao, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia Notes on Chinese culture and society allow you to understand situational etiquette Discussions of challenges faced by English

From Product Description to Cost- a Practical Approach: The Parametric Approach

From Product Description to Cost- a Practical Approach: The Parametric Approach

$299.00
View Product


Parametric cost estimating, when properly used, is a very powerful and cost effective technique. Unfortunately, this technique is often misunderstood and rejected by many potential users for whom it could be a beneficial tool. The development of an agreement on how to use it and how to recognise its limitations is a major benefit to the cost estimating community. From Product Description to Cost: A Practical Approach presents different ways of parametrically forecasting costs, and the advantages and disadvantages of these methods by using real examples from the mechanical, software and building industries; discusses most of the mathematical procedures which are useful for parametrically forecasting costs; introduces the judgement needed to audit the ways in which these forecasting techniques are used, firstly as a process, and secondly as a tool to generate estimates. Volume 1: The Parametric Approach contains four parts. Over the course of this volume, cost estimating is introduced; the preparation of data before utilization is discussed; the basic concepts of general cost estimating models are examined; the use of cost models is considered and finally, risk analysis (as it can be used during parametric cost estimating) is introduced.
