About this book
A detailed and up-to-date overview of image-guided treatments is provided. The initial chapters on benign and inflammatory diseases are precursors to advanced chapters on hidradenitis suppurativa and pigmented lesion analysis. A dedicated chapter on melanoma skin cancer and malignant melanoma is followed by updated concepts of melanoma treatment, including genetic markers and PET/CT to monitor therapeutic success. Further chapters address such topics as dermal trauma from foreign bodies and burns, scar imaging, fillers complications and podiatric imaging. Chapters on optical coherence tomography and reflectance confocal microscopy complete the coverage.
All chapters were written by dermatologists trained in ultrasound diagnosis, interventional radiologists, dermatopathologists and specialists in advanced optical and microscopic dermatologic analysis, providing a reference guide to noninvasive diagnosis techniques and image guided minimally invasive treatment options. As such, Image Guided Dermatologic Treatments will be an invaluable asset for clinicians in medical and allied fields where dermatologic diagnosis using the least invasive option is required.
