Pete the Vet has seen it all – whether Apollo the hamster, Nero the cat, Samson the rabbit or Ned the terrier, he has come across a whole host of cases that aren't in the textbook. With nearly twenty-five years at a veterinary clinic combined with ten years spent on the Telegraph answering reader's questions and a weekly spot on Irish breakfast TV he has dealt with sick pets from the big to the small. Whether that is a giant tortoise or a budgie, there is no case too extraordinary for Pete. Drawing on his experience from his own veterinary practice Pete has a wealth of stories – heart-warming as well as heartbreaking – that are told with a witty and engaging turn of phrase. Pet Subjects is a collection of case studies where the reader works beside Pete to try and cure his patients. Once solved, Pete helpfully provides further Q&As to cover a wider range of ailments related to the main story. A captivating and essential read for anyone who cares for a pet of their own.

Whether in the bar, the restaurant or with friends, I was regularly being asked to tell my stories about Percy, the African Gray parrot that I once had the pleasure to own. I was only too pleased to divulge my many humorous recollections of this intelligent little bird who was not only very clever but also devious, mischievous and sometimes destructive. To me he was always a loveable rogue. I found myself remembering other creatures, great and small, which I had encountered. More often than not, these memories are amusing now, although at the time may not have been so comical. The results being that there are many different accounts and experiences which I have been fortunate to have and are included in this book. These range from my encounters with budgerigars and other birds, to mice and elephants. There are some fishy tales as well!

This book covers three major areas essential to in vivo biochemical studies with PET and SPECT: synthesis of radiopharmaceuticals, biological modeling, and clinical applications. The book emphasizes advances in the synthesis of radiopharmaceuticals used in PET and SPECT studies of brain flow and oxidatative metabolism, in addition to biological modeling. The most widely used 2-deoxyglucose/2-fluorodeoxyglucose models are discussed, as well as models used in the quantitation of brain receptors. Other topics include a possible model for converting 6-[18F] fluorodopa images into the quantitative rate of dopamine synthesis, evaluations of technetium- and iodine-labeled blood flow tracers, and possibilities for using SPECT to measure other pathophysiological variables. This book will be a valuable reference source to students and specialists interested in these in vivo measurements.

Acute and chronic ear disease continues to be one of the leading diseases of childhood. Understanding eustachian tube function and management remains one of the most important aspects in controlling inflammatory ear disease. Chronic ear disease requires elaborate surgical interventions designed to bypass eustachian tube dysfunction and/or poor mastoid aeration, since surgical management of the eustachian tube has been elusive. Our understanding of the ear and hearing continues to expand at record pace, as auditory neuroscientists discover the fundamental molecular structure and function of the auditory system. The cochlear implant has revolutionized the treatment of deafness. In contrast, the complexity of eustachian tube pathophysiology is only just beginning to be appreciated. This book provides a detailed analysis of contemporary knowledge on the morphology, physiology, and gas exchange function of the eustachian tube, middle ear, and mastoid. Newer diagnostic tests, such as sono tubometry, tubomanometry, and endoscopic video-analysis, are also described. Finally, a selection of innovative surgical management strategies for eustachian tube dysfunction is presented. The clinical impact of these diagnostic tools and surgical management options still requires the test of time, as well as investigation by others. This text provides the trainee, clinician, and researcher with the opportunity to acquire state-of-the-art information in a single volume. I am certain that this is just the beginning of our knowledge of ways in which to improve the management of one of the long-standing chronic conditions that result in hearing loss and more serious sequellae.

The three-volume set LNCS 10433, 10434, and 10435 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention, MICCAI 2017, held inQuebec City, Canada, in September 2017. The 255 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 800 submissions in a two-phase review process. The papers have been organized in the following topical sections: Part I: atlas and surface-based techniques; shape and patch-based techniques; registration techniques, functional imaging, connectivity, and brain parcellation; diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) and tensor/fiber processing; and image segmentation and modelling. Part II: optical imaging; airway and vessel analysis; motion and cardiac analysis; tumor processing; planning and simulation for medical interventions; interventional imaging and navigation; and medical image computing. Part III: feature extraction and classification techniques; and machine learning in medical image computing.
