About this book


Estimates reveal that there are some 200 million heterozygous carriers of abnormal hemoglobins genes worldwide, and tens of thousands of severely affected patients. Effective application of imaging techniques is essential to combat the continuing development of the disease and to ensure risk-free follow-up of the chronically ill. This is the first book to offer complete coverage of such radiologic applications with both conventional and the most modern imaging modalities. Interventional radiology, marrow transplantation, prenatal diagnosis by ultrasonography, and radiotherapy for bone marrow heterotopia are also featured.
