This book addresses the topic of toilet design, but instead of focusing on the typical able bodied user, it takes the various needs and limited abilities of older and/or disabled people as its starting point (human centered design). This follows the principles of Inclusive Design: designs taking into account the needs of the most challenged, will also have benefits for the healthy. For the most part, this book is a spin-off of an EU-funded research and development project called the Friendly Rest Room for Elderly People (FFR), which ran from 2001 to 2005.
Conventional computed tomography (CT) techniques employ a narrow array of x-ray detectors and a fan-shaped x-ray beam to rotate around the patient to produce images of thin sections of the patient. Large sections of the body are covered by moving the patient into the rotating x-ray detector and x-ray source gantry. Cone beam CT is an alternative technique using a large area detector and cone-shaped x-ray beam to produce 3D images of a thick section of the body with one full angle (360 degree or 180 degree plus detector coverage) rotation.

Glaucoma is not a single disease that responds to a single treatment. A range of clinical entities is involved, including both ocular and systemic conditions. Glaucoma is difficult to diagnose, and that makes its treatment even more difficult. In this volume, the authors attempt to alleviate confusion about glaucoma.

Beginning with a full classification and profile and ending with an overview of treatment options, Handbook of Glaucoma distills much of the medical literature into one straightforward reference.
