Since the introduction of the flexible bronchoscope by Dr. Ikeda in Japan, bronchoscopy has been limited to the inspection of the mucosal surface of the airways.

After decades of conventional bronchoscopy, duansci.com the introduction of endobronchial ultrasound was the first really new imaging modality and it completely changed the endoscopist’s capabilities. The use of EBUS can be a liberating experience, as the natural limitations of endoscopy are overcome and the mediastinal structures are open for exploration, evaluation and guided biopsy…

Publisher: Demos Medical Publishing 2009 | 208 Pages | ISBN: 1933864400 | PDF | 28.7 MB

Consequently, pancreaticcytopathology is integral to accurate pre-operative diagnosis, yet it is a challenging diagnostic area with a variety of potential pitfalls and look-alike lesions. Skillful recognition and an awareness of the limitations of the procedure are essential in avoiding misdiagnosis of these dangerous lesions...

Sara K. Goldsmith "Suicide Prevention and Intervention: Summary of a Workshop"
Publisher: Natl Academy Pr 2002 | 23 Pages | ISBN: 0309076242 | PDF | 1.5 MB

Dr. C.Hendricks Brown discussed a framework and strategies for suicide prevention research. He discussed how to evaluate programs, and described an early intervention program for violence as a model for suicide prevention. He underscored three challenges facing suicide prevention. Suicide is a low base-rate behavior, approximately 12 per 100,000 in the population at large. Therefore, changes in numbers of suicides must be studied appropriately to ensure that any change is due to the intervention, and not to other factors. Risk factors for suicide are non-specific, since they associated with other undesirable outcomes.
