Understanding Pulmonary Pathology: Applying Pathological Findings in Therapeutic Decision Making

Academic Press
Free sample

Understanding Pulmonary Pathology: Applying Pathological Findings in Therapeutic Decision Making provides a much needed reference tool for pathologists, practicing pulmonologists, and pulmonologist researchers. The unique approach to pulmonary pathology combines the multi-perspective views of the author who was trained formally as both a pulmonologist and as a pathologist.

The book addresses what is often lost in translation when conveying the experience of pulmonary pathology in practicing pulmonary medicine. This important tool conveys detailed information concerning the anatomic basis of disease to those oriented towards thinking about diseases physiologically, providing the opportunity for optimal diagnosis, treatment of patients, and advancement of research.

  • Bridges the knowledge gap between the pathologist, practicing pulmonologist, and pulmonologist researcher
  • Contains a one-of-a-kind index that lists pathological terms and describes how they relate to disease diagnosis and impact pulmonary function
  • Includes the current international guidelines with a critical analysis of how pathology is reflected within them
  • Provides full-color, microscopic pictures on referenced topics

About the author

Dr. Kradin began his medical career at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He then went on to complete residencies at both Massachusetts General Hospital and Pennsylvania Hospital. He is board certified in Internal Medicine and Pulmonary Disease by the American Board of Internal Medicine as well as being certified in Anatomic Pathology by the American Board of Pathology.

Dr. Kradin has a number of clinical interests including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Interstitial Lung Disease, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and Pulmonary Immunology.

He also holds an Associate Professor position of Pathology at Harvard Medical School. There, he has been a director of a course on current concepts in asbestos related pulmonary disease. Dr. Kradin is also an Associate Pathologist at Massachusetts General Hospital in the Immunopathology Unit. His techniques include tissue culture and immunocytochemistry, flow cytometry, Northern blotting and immunocytochemistry. Dr. Kradin has authored and co-authored a number of scholarly articles including "Complete pulmonary venous occlusion after radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation" which was published in the Annals of Thoracic Surgery in January 2009. He also co-authored "Nodular amiodarone lung disease" published in the American Journal of Surgical Pathology in November of 2008.

Diagnostic Pathology of Infectious Disease presents a comprehensive, organ-based approach to the effective and accurate diagnosis of infectious diseases. Dr. Richard L. Kradin covers the latest information on H1N1, as well as the use of immunohistochemical stains, PCR, Immunoperoxidase, and other molecular techniques for a current representation of the field. High-quality, full-color illustrations and differential diagnosis tables accompany each lesion so you can quickly identify and diagnose whatever you see. This reference is an invaluable tool for the accurate diagnosis of any infectious disease—from the common to the most challenging.Covers the latest techniques in immunohistochemistry and molecular genetics integrated throughout the text for comprehensive information on all investigative contexts relevant to ensuring diagnostic accuracy.

Emphasizes the host responses critical in differential diagnosis to serve as a second opinion when non-infectious diagnoses mimic and confound the diagnosis of infection.

Provides a complete visual guide to suspect lesions through superb, high-quality, full-color illustrations of key aspects of various diseases that facilitate the rapid identification of biopsy specimen.

Presents contents organized by organ as opposed to pathogen to more effectively address diagnostic and management issues.

Features tables that list differential diagnosis for each lesion for quick summaries of key points in problem areas.

Highlights morphological characteristics and landmarks of tissue samples throughout the text for easy access to information necessary for signing out specimen.

Focuses on clinicopathologic features and correlations so you can deal with the diagnostic problems you face every day.
