<i>I'm missing out on my life. What's wrong with me?</i><br /><br />If that's ever crossed your mind, and if you know there's more to life than what you've been living, this book is for you.<br /><br />It sucks to acknowledge that you are what's keeping you from the life you want. You sacrifice what you want most for what you want in the moment. You know everything you're supposed to do, and yet you feel stuck--limited by your past, overwhelmed by your future--in a purgatory of your own behavior.<br /><br />After decades of feeling trapped by this mindset, Elizabeth Benton shifted her whole life by proving her own stories wrong. In this book, Elizabeth will help you live a new story, in which you can, you will, and you already have everything you need to make it happen.

Customer Reviews
Les indications neuroradiologiques représentent environ 40 % des IRM. Or, la réalisation pratique de ces examens et leur interprétation requièrent des connaissances spécialisées. La grande originalité de cet ouvrage repose sur son approche sémiologique et thématique de la pathologie neurologique. Il se consulte aisément grâce à un plan en deux parties ; encéphale d'une part, moelle et rachis d'autre part, suivant la même analyse :<br /> <br />- comment réaliser une IRM ;<br /> <br />- sémiologie élémentaire ;<br /> <br />- orientation diagnostique en fonction des caractéristiques des images.<br /> <br />Ce livre offre en particulier un mode d'emploi accessible à tous – neuroradiologue ou radiologue généraliste – des techniques avancées devenues usuelles, comme la perfusion, les angiographies dynamiques, la spectro-RM. Ces séquences font maintenant partie intégrante du bilan de nombreuses pathologies du SNC et leur utilisation est quotidienne et nécessaire.<br /> <br />En fin d'ouvrage, des fiches regroupent les éléments indispensables à la connaissance de pathologies particulières soit fréquentes, comme la SEP, soit de causes variées comme les démences ou les pathologies de la substance blanche.<br /> <br />Riche d'une iconographie abondante et récente, ce livre s'adresse à la fois aux radiologues en formation, désireux d'apprendre la sémiologie IRM neuroradiologique, aux neurologues et aux neurochirurgiens, qu'il aidera à mieux comprendre les images et les comptes rendus. Il constitue un outil précieux du DPC pour le radiologue confirmé. Enfin, les manipulateurs et tous les prescripteurs d'IRM du système nerveux central y trouveront de précieuses informations sur la réalisation pratique des examens.<br /> <br />Le succès de la 1re édition et les avancées permanentes dans ce domaine rendaient cette nouvelle édition nécessaire. Désormais tout en couleur, et avec une iconographie très largement renouvelée, cette 2e édition s'enrichit d'une nouvelle partie composée de fiches consacrées aux principales pathologies rencontrées par le neuroradiologue (AVC, démence, gliomes, etc.).
