Colonoscopy: Tips and Tricks is a practical guide to the fundamentals of this very common medical procedure. Specialists will also find it a useful refresher tool and trainees in gastroenterology and practicing endoscopist doctors will find it an indispensable resource. Simply split into four sections, Pre-procedure, Basic Procedure, Operative Procedures and Post-procedure, the reader will be taken through the basics of performing colonoscopy in a step-by-step fashion, with full attention given to setting up the colonoscopy setting and preparing the patient as well as the fundamentals behind the different procedures themselves. Authored by one the worlds leading expert in colonoscopy, Jerry Waye, along with an up and coming GI fellow at Mount Sinai. Complete with acompanion websitefeaturing approximately 40 video clips of colonoscopy procedures being performed by leading experts.
Mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) is the third most well-regarded semiconductor after silicon and gallium arsenide and is the material of choice for use in infrared sensing and imaging. The reason for this is that MCT can be tuned to the desired IR wavelength by varying the cadmium concentration.Mercury Cadmium Telluride: Growth, Properties and Applications provides both an introduction for newcomers, and a comprehensive review of this fascinating material. Part One discusses the history and current status of both bulk and epitaxial growth techniques, Part Two is concerned with the wide range of properties of MCT, and Part Three covers the various device types that have been developed using MCT. Each chapter opens with some historical background and theory before presenting current research. Coverage includes:Bulk growth and properties of MCT and CdZnTe for MCT epitaxial growthLiquid phase epitaxy (LPE) growthMetal-organic vapour phase epitaxy (MOVPE)Molecular beam epitaxy (MBE)Alternative substratesMechanical, thermal and optical properties of MCTDefects, diffusion, doping and annealingDry device processingPhotoconductive and photovoltaic detectorsAvalanche photodiode detectorsRoom-temperature IR detectors
