Viral Hepatitis in Asia and the Pacific: Towards Elimination as a Public Health Threat documents the narratives, innovations, and scope of work in the Asia-Pacific region in starting, consolidating, and moving towards the elimination of viral hepatitis. The Asia-Pacific region is disproportionately affected by viral hepatitis, accounting for two-thirds of the global burden. Countries from low-, middle- and high-income economies have adopted different strategies to address combating and eliminating viral hepatitis. The successful experiences of the Asia-Pacific region are valuable for other regions, especially the middle- and low-income countries moving towards the achievement of the 2030 goal of elimination.Strategies discussed include integrated approaches, negotiating universal access to diagnostics, and treatment options, including vaccines. Content further covers the critical barriers to achieve the 2030 targets for elimination of viral hepatitis and how to overcome them. This is the perfect reference for all hepatology researchers and elimination policy advocates who are dedicated to joining the fight for the 2030 goal of the elimination of viral hepatitis as a public health threat.

Physiologists, Biomedical Scientists and Clinicians: Bridging the Intellectual and Communication Gap with the Public and Decisionmakers, the latest release in the Fundamentals of Physiology series, provides valuable information to inform researchers and clinicians and better train students on the broader aspects of the scientific process and how to best counteract mis- and disinformation. This book is published in concert with the International Union of Physiological Sciences and is a useful resource for lecturers when training physiologists, biomedical scientists, medical and allied health students.Faculty, students, researchers, and clinicians are struggling how to deal with the post-truth world as the broader public lacks an understanding of the complexity of the scientific research process. This has resulted in the dissemination of mis- and disinformation that is increasingly used to shape public opinion in medical-related matters. For example, the rise of anti-vaxxers and resistance to Covid-19 pandemic social isolation protocols. In addition, the relatively limited role physiologists and scientists play when engaging the broader public in this regard.

Trustworthy AI in Medical Imaging brings together scientific researchers, medical experts, and industry partners working in the field of trustworthiness, bridging the gap between AI research and concrete medical applications and making it a learning resource for undergraduates, masters students, and researchers in AI for medical imaging applications.The book will help readers acquire the basic notions of AI trustworthiness and understand its concrete application in medical imaging, identify pain points and solutions to enhance trustworthiness in medical imaging applications, understand current limitations and perspectives of trustworthy AI in medical imaging, and identify novel research directions.Although the problem of trustworthiness in AI is actively researched in different disciplines, the adoption and implementation of trustworthy AI principles in real-world scenarios is still at its infancy. This is particularly true in medical imaging where guidelines and standards for trustworthiness are critical for the successful deployment in clinical practice. After setting out the technical and clinical challenges of AI trustworthiness, the book gives a concise overview of the basic concepts before presenting state-of-the-art methods for solving these challenges.
