Manual of Normative Measurements in Head and Neck Imaging Daniel Thomas Ginat
2021 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

"This text is a comprehensive reference guide for normative measurements of anatomic structures in the head and neck, including lymph nodes, temporal bone, skull base, craniocervical junction, orbit, tonsillar tissues, thyroid, and salivary glands. The aim is to assist in the accurate interpretation of imaging studies of this region, where the size of different structures is of high importance for the differentiation of normal and abnormal anatomy, taking into account patient age and gender. The book includes illustrated examples of the proper measurement techniques. Furthermore, examples of pathology with abnormal measurements are included for comparison. The Manual of Normative Measurements in Head and Neck Imaging will serve as a valuable asset for radiologists and clinicians who are involved in the evaluation of patients with head and neck disorders." From publisher’s website

Extracellular Matrix Biomineralization of Dental Tissue Structures / edited by Michel Goldberg and Pamela Den Besten
Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2021

"This book addresses the structural and biological properties of dental and peridental tissue structures and covers their mineralization process. The book contains a description of dentines, cementum, enamel and bone, including collagens, as well as non-collagenous proteins (SIBLINGs, SLRPs, GAGs, PGs, lipids, and MMPs).

The mechanisms of mineralization are described in detail and the book is focused on matrix vesicles, collagen mineralization and the role of non-collagenous extracellular matrix components either as promoters or inhibitors of mineralization. In addition, the matrix components (non-collagenous) of enamel (amelogenin, ameloblastin, enamelin, MMP4, MMP20 and other proteases) are reviewed and their respective roles in dental tissues biomineralizations and tissue turnover are discussed. Additionally, environmental factors involved in enamel / dentin defects are adressed.

With state-of-the-art contributions from experts in the respective domains, the book is a useful introduction to the field for junior scientists, interested in dental and peridental tissue biomineralization. It is also an interesting read for advanced scientists and clinicians working in dental research, giving them a broader view of the topic beyond their area of specialization.

The series Biology of Extracellular Matrix is published in collaboration with the American Society for Matrix Biology." From publisher’s website

Early Detection and Treatment of Head & Neck Cancers: Theoretical Background and Newly Emerging Research / edited by Rami El Assal, Dyani Gaudilliere, and Stephen Thaddeus Connelly
Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2021

"Head and neck cancer (HNC) is a heterogeneous group of cancers that, if combined, represent one of the most common cancer types. Patients with HNC suffer significant morbidity and mortality due to the importance of the structures involved. Over two-thirds of these patients are diagnosed at a late stage, leading to a poor prognosis. Therefore, advancements in early detection and treatment of HNC are crucial. This second volume provides an up-to-date overview of the theoretical background in the field of head and neck cancer (HNC) as well as of the emerging research that is impacting our understanding of this disease. The book begins with a comprehensive review of the epidemiology, etiology, symptoms, diagnosis, and staging of HNC. Next, it covers the essentials of potentially malignant disorders of the oral cavity, an important variety of HNC. Subsequently, it covers the newly emerging research in the field of HNC. The overall goal is to shift towards precision medicine (discussed in detail in Volume I), which will bring individualized clinical benefit to patients with HNC.

This second volume of Early Detection and Treatment of Head & Neck Cancers concludes with the topic of chronic pain associated with HNC, including both the mechanisms of pain and the management strategies, and the emerging oral mucoadhesive drug delivery approach for HNC. All HNC surgeons, scientists, residents, and individuals whose lives have been touched by this disease, will recognize the impact pain has upon a patient’s health and his or her recovery trajectory." From publisher’s website

Early Detection and Treatment of Head & Neck Cancers / edited by Rami El Assal, Dyani Gaudilliere, Stephen, and Thaddeus Connelly
Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2021

"Head and neck cancer (HNC) is a heterogeneous group of cancers that, if combined, represent one of the most common cancer types. Patients with HNC suffer significant morbidity and mortality due to the importance of the structures involved. Over two-thirds of these patients are diagnosed at a late stage, leading to a poor prognosis. Therefore, advancements in early detection and treatment of HNC are crucial. Volume I begins with a general overview, including the industry landscape, of HNC detection, diagnosis, and treatment. Next, it covers the applications of innovative technologies such as microfluidics, nanotechnology, and deep learning to early detect as well as study HNC. For example, studying the cellular features at a single-cell level became possible with the advancement of technologies such as mass cytometry or specifically, Cytometry by Time Of Flight Mass Spectrometry (CyTOF), which has revolutionized the way we can study complex human diseases such as HNC. Finally, the last few chapters are dedicated to describing the standard of care of HNC.

The first volume of Early Detection and Treatment of Head & Neck Cancers is highly pertinent to the next generation of interdisciplinary clinicians, scientists, residents, and students who are particularly interested in HNC and in the translation of early detection methods, technologies, and research to clinical practice." From publisher’s website
