mineral field and for clinicians who see patients with disorders of bone and mineral metabolism.
Osteoporosis. Editor, Marcus, Feldman, Kelsey, 1996, Academic Press Inc., A Division of Harcourt Brace & Company, 525 B Street, Suite 1900, San Diego, California 92101-4495
It contains 70 chapters grouped in six sections... All the chapters are authoritative and include up-to-date references... Osteoporosis is quite comprehensive; indeed, topics that typically receive brief treatment elsewhere (osteoporosis in minority groups and in men) receive entire chapters here... The book also covers relevant methodologic concepts, no doubt reflecting the editors desire to make the material accessible to readers with other primary research interests.
Bone Densitometry in Clinical Practice: Application and Interpretation. Bonnick, Second edition, 2003, Humana Press Inc., 999 Riverview Drive, Suite 208, Totowa, New Jersey 07512
This fully updated and dramatically expanded edition will allow family physicians and specialists to fully understand not only what they need to do, but also why. New to this edition-over half the book-are discussions of the clinical guidelines for selecting patients for densitometry measurements, various questionnaires and indices that have been developed to help patients identify themselves as candidates for bone mass measurements, and specific densitometry applications of diagnosis, fracture risk prediction, and monitoring changes in bone density.
Osteoporosis: Pathophysiology and Clinical Management. Editor, Orwoll and Bliziotes, 2003, Humana Press Inc., 999 Riverview Drive, Suite 208, Totowa, New Jersey 07512
In Osteoporosis: Pathophysiology and Clinical Management, leading clinicians and researchers join forces to illuminate in coupled chapters all the major scientific and clinical aspects of osteoporosis. On the basic science side, topics range from the genetics of osteoporosis and bone turnover markers, to androgen action in bone, to the basic biology of estrogen and bone. On the clinical side the authors present the latest thinking about the use of bone densitometry in treatment, the use of vitamin D and its metabolites, and the clinical utilization of salmon calcitonin, as well as parathyroid and bisphosphonate therapies, SERMs, and other important treatments.
Principles of Bone Biology. Editor, Bilezikian, Raisz, and Rodan, Vol. 1-2, Second Edition, 2002, Academic Press, A division of Harcourt, Inc., 525 B Street, Suite 1900, San Diego, California 92101-4495, USA
This comprehensive, authoritative, and timely work deals with all aspects of bone biology, including developmental and functional issues, pharmacology, and pathobiology. In addition, there is a workshop section which deals with actual methods and techniques relevant to investigators in this field. Principles of Bone Biology provides the reader with the most recent information, views, and references, focused on individual topics, contributed by the foremost autorities in the field.
Bone Densitometry For Technologists. Bonnick, Lewis, Texas Woman's University, Denton, TX, 2002, Humana Press, 999 Riverview Drive, Suite 208, Totowa, New Jersey 07512
Cmprehensive, informative, and highly practical, Bone Densitometry for Technologists emphasizes the role of densitometry and technologists in the diagnosis and management of osteoporosis. It provides a sound basis for a complete understanding of the often esoteric technical manuals supplied by manufacturers, and goes foar beyond that understanding to permit expert operation of any approved desitometry device.
