Edited By Beuscart, Regis; Hackl, Werner; Nohr, Christian
When someone enters hospital for examination or treatment, is given a doctor's prescription, receives medication from a pharmacist or has his drugs administered by a nurse, he assumes that his health and welfare will benefit from this medical intervention. But the effectiveness of available therapies should also be viewed from the perspective of potentially negative consequences: adverse drug events (ADE). ADEs endanger patients' safety and increase hospital costs, making reduction of preventable ADEs a crucial and challenging public health issue. This book presents papers from the workshop 'Patient Safety through Intelligent Procedures in medication' focusing on the following topics: the identification of ADE and medication errors in hospital settings; the role of human and organizational factors on ADE and medication errors; and information and communication technologies to prevent or correct ADEs and medication errors. The papers in this book are the work of active scientific experts in the field and confront ideas and experiences arising worldwide and in particular from several EU projects directed at resolving ADE problems. Here is an opportunity to find common ways for solving shared difficulties and for making improvements happen. 225pp.

Maas, Marnix C.
Molecular imaging techniques enable the visualization of biological processes in living organisms. These techniques rely on synthetic biomolecules ('tracers') that specifically target a physiological process of interest without significantly disturbing it, and that poses some property which allows them to be detected externally. If the detectable property is radioactivity, the molecules are referred to as radiotracers, and the imaging technique is referred to as nuclear imaging. The aims of the research presented in this work are to determine the spatial resolution experimentally, the energy resolution and time resolution attainable with monolithic scintillator detectors, to analyze the dependence of these detector properties on physical quantities such as the scintillator light yield, the APD gain and the noise characteristics of the front-end electronics, and to predict the performance of a small animal PET system based on these detectors. The research presented in this publication is primarily based on experimental work on prototype detector modules. Simulation studies have been carried out in parallel; these are presented elsewhere. Some of the results of these simulation studies are also used in this work. 168pp. N.B. Small crease to bottom corner of rear cover.

de Bruyn, Gerd
This work contains text in English and German. In the summer 1978, the cover of the magazine "Bauwelt" showed a photograph of an unusual building. It was tersely introduced to readers as a 'private house with office in Bad Nauheim', but it was immediately obvious that this was a built manifesto. What appeared was a strictly symmetrically articulated, steeply rising facade, emanating dignity and composure. It also seemed able to manage without windows, which further enhanced its austere elegance. And then there were the strikingly slender, sharp-angled wall elements, which seemed captivatingly graceful, or even delicate and fragile - as though folded from paper. The fact is that, long before Gilles Deleuze had cast his spell on a new generation of aesthetically ambitious architects, Johannes Peter Holzinger was putting his folding skills into practice as a matter of course. 59pp.

Medland, A. J.
This text explores the use of computer-aided design (CAD) techniques in the solution of mechanical engineering problems. The numerous applications presented, provide the basis for a broad theory covering the creation and application of CAD systems in practice. This work has led to the generation of a more general approach to design theory. The second edition contains two new chapters covering the research and application of constraint modelling theory that arose directly from the work presented in the first edition. The book's general approach covers all aspects of mechanical design ranging from the design and control of assemblies to the remote operation of coordinate measuring machines via a CAD system. This book should be of interest to graduate engineers, designers, postgraduate students and research engineers. 248pp.Slight creasing to first few pages.
