In preparing the material for this book, I took the advice of my students who generously shared their views and opinions with me. I was told that it would be preferable to have images of the various diseases with legends describing the disease. Students would be able to learn and retain the inf- mation more successfully if the material was accompanied by pictures and schematic drawings. Recent advances in technology have made it possible to photograph regions that are difcult to view with the naked eye, such as the ear, nose, throat, nasopharynx, and larynx – all the areas of otorhinolaryngology. Such an illustrated text in this feld is important and necessary for teaching purposes. In this book I tried to compile images of the basic conditions that are commonly seen in general practice and to give the reader a visual survey with a brief description of the condition. I added tables and schematic drawings in order to provide practical information. It is not the purpose of this book to be a comprehensive textbook, since many textbooks are already available with more detailed information of the conditions illustrated here. This book is primarily intended for medical students, family and general practitioners, and ENT trainees. It may also serve as basic reading material for those in allied specialties. I hope my colleagues fnd this book useful and it contributes toward their teaching purposes.
Sectional Anatomy & Tomography of the Head focuses on the anatomical section of the head and its description. It discusses the slowly developing appearance of the head which includes the face, orbit, ears, sinuses, and base of the skull. It addresses the functions and structures of such parts. Some of the topics covered in the book are the anatomic section, radiographs, line drawings, and tomography of the coronal head, the lateral head, axial head, and oblique head. The frontal, lateral, axial, and oblique positions of the head are covered. A study of the axial features of the head is also presented. A chapter is devoted to the bone structures of the oblique area of the head. Another section focuses on the description of orbit, optic canal, nasal fossa, and temporal bone. The book can provide useful information to doctors, neurosurgeons, students, and researchers.
Heredity, either alone or in combination with environmental factors, is the most prominent underlying cause of hearing impairment. Thanks in large part to positional cloning techniques, scientists have identified nearly 100 gene loci implicated in hearing loss since 1995-an extraordinarily rapid rate of gene identification. Genetic Hearing Loss branches into syndromic and nonsyndromic categorical directions in its coverage of the genetics behind hearing loss. Authored by 60 internationally recognized researchers, the book describes the normal development of the ear, updates the classification and epidemiology of hearing loss, and surveys the usage of audiometric tests and diagnostic medical examinations.
