This book is a comprehensive, state of the art guide to the contemporary diagnosis of temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) that will help to compensate for the frequent lack of experience and inadequate training among health professionals who encounter patients with jaw joint problems. The opening section describes the whole patient philosophy essential for treatment success, examines ethical and legal considerations, and discusses all aspects of anatomy. Pathophysiology, clinical assessment, and imaging evaluation, including by means of modern MR imaging and CBCT, are then considered in detail. Finally, the diagnostic criteria for the full range of TMDs are thoroughly explained and the urgent need to appreciate temporomandibular disorders as the chronic pain conditions they are is addressed. Complementary volumes are devoted to non-surgical treatment of TMDs and to total temporomandibular joint replacement and other surgical procedures, respectively. Each book will be of high value for the multidisciplinary team necessary for successful management of TMDs, including dentists, surgeons, primary care doctors, pain doctors, and allied health professionals.

The development of intracranial metastatic disease (IMD) complicates the course of 20% of patients with cancer. Despite improvements in patient survival with more aggressive treatment options as compared to the prior standard of palliative whole brain radiation, outcomes for patients who develop IMD remain dispiriting. There is need to celebrate our advances; but a major collaborative multidisciplinary effort is needed to push the field to achieve more meaningful survival benefits for our patients with IMD. In this Research Topic collection, we have assembled work detailing the latest innovations in brain metastases imaging and management, spanning from minimally invasive surgery to immunotherapy.

This reader-friendly book attempts to comprehend all the scattered and diverse understandings of Contemporary Management Thought in a systematic and structured manner into a nutshell. It will enable the reader to take a leap jump to the current frontiers of the turbulent and dynamic business world today. The first chapter comprises an in-depth analysis of the four parameters that govern modern business; Uncertainty, Ambiguity, Paradox and Chaos. Despite the fact that business executives fear and resent to deal with such realities, exponential financial gains can be made within very short periods by exploring the enormous business potential and emerging opportunities associated with them. The second chapter deals with the significance of knowledge in modern management with numerous value additions, supplemented by examples. The third chapter on Paradigms, a buzzword in modern management, encapsulates all the existing concepts with a new philosophical interpretation. Also, it highlights the missed opportunities owing to paradigm shifts and paradigm blindness and the need to redefine the corporate mission from an end-use perspective, rather than from the conventional end-user perspective. The fourth chapter identifies a global process error and summarizes the entire industrial revolution from a strategy evolution and transformation perspective.
