The Research Basis for Autism Intervention

This volume is the outcome of a cooperative scientific workshop between researchers from Israel and North Carolina, entitled Research Frontiers in Autism: Genetics, Behavior and Intervention, held in Jerusalem, June 28-30, 1999. During this workshop, a group of professionals came together to improve their understanding of the occasional gap that appears between research results in the study of autism and clinical applications in its treatment. Each chapter in this volume includes a discussion of the direct and indirect implications of basic research for intervention. With its focus on cutting-edge research, this volume will be of interest to researchers, clinicians, and parents of children with autism.

Technical Basis of Radiation Therapy

Practical Clinical Applications

This book, now in its fourth edition, is unique in detailing in depth the technological basis of radiation therapy. Compared with the previous edition, all chapters have been rewritten and updated. In addition, new chapters have been included on various topics, including the use of imaging in treatment planning, second malignant neoplasms due to irradiation, and quality assurance in radiation oncology. The book is divided into two sections. The first covers basic concepts in treatment planning, including essential physics, and explains the various approaches to radiation therapy, such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy, tomotherapy, and high and low dose rate brachytherapy. The second part documents the practical clinical applications of these concepts in the treatment of different cancers. All of the chapters have been written by leaders in the field. This book will serve to instruct and acquaint teachers, students and practitioners in the various fields of oncology with the basic technological factors and approaches in radiation therapy.

Image and treatment planning data are modeled as DICOM information objects,
and services that act on these information objects (e.g., storage or printing) are
identified. DICOM information objects are used to represent CT scans, structures,

Transferring Research to Practice for Health Care Improvement

Clinical and biomedical research production is rapidly growing, but delivery to practitioners remains unacceptably slow. To improve health care quality and to make the best scientific achievements part of usual practices, clinicians need better information systems and services. The international, multi-disciplinary author team presents the analyses and recommendations that will lead to competitive advantages by increasing quality and effectiveness of health care delivery. The book includes the latest findings on: -Advanced information technologies in disseminating research results -Information infrastructure for transferring research -Structuring knowledge for practical application -Practical solutions: better information for improved health care quality. The practical approach of this book ensures easy to read, stand-alone chapters that will benefit medical group managers and local and commercial developers of health care information systems. The book is also a useful educational tool for medical informatics, health care administration, and health services research.

Internet and World Wide Web technology have raised many technical as well as
social and economic issues. The paper begins with a description of the recent
digital library research initiative funded by the U.S. federal government.
