The book provides a comprehensive description of the basic ultrasound principles, normal anatomy of the lower limb muscles and classification of muscle strain injuries. Ultrasound images are coupled with anatomical schemes explaining probe positioning and scanning technique for the various muscles of the thigh and leg. For each muscle, a brief explanation of normal anatomy is also provided, together with a list of tricks and tips and advice on how to perform the ultrasound scan in clinical practice. This book is an excellent practical teaching guide for beginners and a useful reference for more experienced sonographers.
This Muscle and a Shovel Bible Class Teacher's Manual was designed to equip you, the instructor, with the necessary information to help your students grow in knowledge and excitement toward the objective of becoming sowers of the gospel seed. This course manual will assist you in guiding your class toward several objectives: * Memorization of key scriptures using the method called Randall's Secret * Student participation in simple, practical, real-life activities during the week * Facilitating and guiding lively class discussions based on the biblical principles of Randall's teachings The Lord's church is in need of a Second Restoration Movement, and you will play a key role in making this hope a reality. The body of Christ is currently focused on attendance numbers; however, this manual will help you, the instructor, shift this current focus back to the biblical focus of sowing the gospel seed everywhere we go! My hope and prayer is that you will find this manual a powerful tool in helping your students deepen their faith, grow in the Word, and finish with a new excitement to become a Randall! May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you richly!
Of the approximately 640 muscles in the human body, over 10% of them are found in the craniofacial region. The craniofacial muscles are involved in a number ofcrucial non-locomotor activities, and are critical to the most basic functions of life, including vision, taste, chewing and food manipulation, swallowing, respiration, speech, as well as regulating facial expression and controlling facial aperture patency. Despite their importance, the biology of these small skeletal muscles is relatively unexplored. Only recently have we begun to understand their unique embryonic development and the genes that control it and characteristic features that separate them from the skeletal muscle stereotype.This book is the most comprehensive reference to date on craniofacial muscle development, structure, function, and disease. It details the state-of-the-art basic science of the craniofacial muscles, and describes their unique response to major neuromuscular conditions. Most importantly, the text highlights how the craniofacial muscles are different from most skeletal muscles, and why they have been viewed as a distinct allotype. In addition, the text points to major gaps in our knowledge about these very important skeletal muscles and identified key gaps in our knowledge and areas primed for further study and discovery.
