The need for this book arose from my teaching, engineering, and - search experience in the non-power aspects of nuclear technology. The lack of a comprehensive textbook in industrial applications of radiation frustrated my students, who had to resort to a multitude of textbooks and research publications to familiarize themselves with the fundam- tal and practical aspects of radiation technology. As an engineer, I had to acquire the design aspects of radiation devices by trial-and-error, and often by accidental reading of a precious publication. As a researcher and a supervisor of graduate students, I found that the needed literature was either hard to find, or too scattered and diverse. More than once, I discovered that what appeared to be an exciting new idea was an old concept that was tried a few decades earlier during the golden era of "Atom for Peace". I am hoping, therefore, that this book will serve as a single comprehensive reference source in a growing field that I expect will continue to expand. This book is directed to both neophytes and experts, and is written to combine the old and the new, the basic and the advanced, the simple and the complex. It is anticipated that this book will be of help in - viving older concepts, improving and expanding existing techniques and promoting the development of new ones.
This book describes some of the theories of biological aging and the evidence for those theories. The topics included are those on defining aging, model systems for studying aging, the effect of environmental temperature, the genetic basis of aging, protective enzymes, free radicals, lipid peroxidation, antioxidants, singlet oxygen, iron, cadmium, chelators, copper, aluminum, Alzheimer's disease, chromium, lead, boron, neutrons, light, exercise, anti-inflammatory agents, vitamin A, and mercury. The books ends with speculations on how all these factors might affect the human aging process.
Workers' compensation causes headaches throughout all levels of an organization. Injuries affect production, costs, and morale. Managing Workers' Compensation: A Guide to Injury Reduction and Effective Claim Management lays out - in logical order - management and safety procedures that reduce injuries and the aggravation that follows. The authors cover hiring, training, and managing employees with injury avoidance in mind. They provide a blueprint for dealing with injured employees and their families, and for determining the correct time for the employee to return to work.
Worldwide health care problems are a hot, growing application in Operations Research. Along with a quickly growing field is an active community of Medical OR and Risk Analysis researchers. Tony Cox is one of the leading research scholars in the field of Risk Heath Risk. His work on health risk modeling will be synthesized along with the work of others on modeling human health risks. The monograph will cover a range of modeling and methodological issues including environmental, experimental, simulation, and mathematical modeling approaches.
Practical Neuroimaging in Stroke, by Alejandro Rabinstein, MD, and Steven J. Resnick, is a neurology reference designed for anyone involved in treating stroke patients. It offers unique, thorough guidance-driven by nearly 500 completely original high-quality images from actual stroke cases-to help you learn and understand the clinical value of diagnostic neuroimaging. Examples of different diagnostic modalities-accompanied by succinct teaching messages-highlight a preference for those most commonly used in clinical practice and most typically interpreted by clinicians caring for patients at bedside. A consistent section format from chapter to chapter enables you to easily access the material. Brilliantly illustrated and clinically relevant, Practical Neuroimaging in Stroke is the closest thing to treating real-life patients!
