Combat Radiology provides unique insights into a military radiologist’s role in the modern battlefield environment. Drawing on his recent experiences in Iraq, Col. Les Folio, a retired air force radiologist and flight surgeon with over twenty years of service, presents a comprehensive introduction to diagnostic imaging technology for the deployed military physician. Topics in the book include descriptions of imaging capabilities of hospitals in deployed military bases in combat zones; practical imaging techniques and terminology associated with penetrating/perforating blast and ballistic injuries; recent medical advances on the battlefield; and the changing role of imaging modalities in combat situations. Additionally, specific anatomic and pathologic imaging cases from combat situations are presented, including traumatic brain injury, chest, abdomen/pelvis, and skeletal trauma. Combat Radiology will appeal not only to military radiologists and surgeons, but also to civilian emergency radiologists and trauma physicians who encounter patients with ballistic and blast injuries resulting from armed conflict, terrorism, and disaster situations.

A urban fantasy of a boy partially raised in a foster home. His puzzled and murky upbringing somewhat hinders his vison during life's lessons learned along his way. Yet, his grooming as a adolescent was not for his own good of maneuvering throughout life's dangerous curves, but for something far greater than he could wrap his head around. It was to provide him a fair shot of making him a worthy opponent. Please leave a review after reading.

The Old French Crusade Cycle consists of a series of epic poems that together form a cycle concerning the First Crusade and the legendary events associated with Godefroi de Buillon. The entire cycle comprises eight volumes, which are being published as editing is completed. In Volume V, Les Chetifs(The Captives), the fabulous adventures of a group of crusaders captured by the Saracens are recounted. The present edition is based on the best extant verse manuscript (Paris, Bibliotheque National, Fonds Francais 12558), and all the variant reading are recorded from the other nine surviving verse texts. A full critical apparatus is provided: notes, a table of proper names, a glossary, and a bibliography. The edition is preceded by an introduction that provides a summary of previous work in this field, an analysis of the action of the epic, a discussion of the manuscript tradition, and a section on the topography of the poem.
