Beschreibung:

Now in full color, this is the largest and highest-quality collection of images relating to the subject. The new third edition includes slides of pathology and histology specimens, radiographic images, schematics, anatomical illustrations, tables, and charts.
The third edition of the Atlas of Osteoporosis is designed to be useful to a broad readership united in their interest in the disorder. The expert authors have encapsulated not only the well-established basics of osteoporosis but also new developments in the field in a format that makes extensive use of graphical displays of important data. Issues that are well known to be important to skeletal biology and osteoporosis (eg, nutrition, exercise, and growth) have been updated. Some chapters included in the first edition have been more extensively revised to reflect major developments. Several chapters have been added to highlight the emergence of new fields (genetics) or the expansion of others (bone densitometry and the laboratory evaluation of bone disorders).
The Nature of Osteoporosis - Osteoclasts, Osteoblasts, Osteocytes: The Cellular Organization of Bone - Bone Acquisition and Peak Bone Mass - Genetics of Osteoporosis - Biomechanics of Bone - Bone Quality - Epidemiology of Osteoporosis and Associated Fractures - Factors That Influence Adult Bone Mass - Glucocorticoids and Bone - Transplantation and Bone - Estrogen-Dependent Bone Loss and Osteoporosis - Osteoporosis in Men - Renal Bone Disease - Immobilization Osteoporosis - Radiology of Osteoporotic Fracture - Laboratory Assessment of Skeletal Status - Bone Densitometry in Osteoporosis Care - Role of Nonpharmacologic Approach to Fracture and Osteoporosis - Bisphosphonate Therapy for Osteoporosis - Bone Anabolic Agents - New Therapeutic Agents
The Atlas of Osteoporosis, now in full color, is the largest and highest-quality collection of images relating to all areas of osteoporosis. The new third edition includes photographs, slides of pathology and histology specimens, radiographic images, flow charts, schematics, anatomical illustrations, tables, and charts. Designed to be useful to a broad readership interested in the disorder, the Atlas includes well-established basics of osteoporosis (skeletal biology, nutrition, exercise, and growth) and new developments in the field. Sections that have been significantly expanded include genetics, bone densitometry, and the laboratory evaluation of bone disorders. The striking, four-color format combined with the breadth of information it contains make this book an invaluable resource for researchers, physicians, and all professionals involved in the study and treatment of osteoporosis.
