Contemporary distributed file systems are monolithic and only support single file abstractions. Nowadays, as Sai-Lai Lo explains, network storage devices have to accommodate new information media such as digital audio and video, with data radically different from the traditional text and binary code that contemporary file systems are optimized for. In this book, the author shows how, by combining new and traditional media, information can be recorded and presented in the most suitable way, and the value of a piece of information can be further enhanced by linking together related pieces. However, composite data and cross-reference between data items raise a number of system issues that have not been addressed properly before. Lo defines a new multiservice storage architecture that meets the needs of existing and emerging applications and can support multiple file abstractions. He also explores a number of related design issues. Researchers in the areas of distributed systems, network multimedia and network storage services will enjoy this book.
"In the early 20th century, plain film radiography probably evoked the same sense of wonder that we now associate with cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR). Extensive technical developments and a growth of studies in the literature have increased demand for CMR, but the availability of competing tests and the lack of training opportunities have been limiting. The complexity of CMR examinations and the lack of standardization in protocols between centers likely also hinder its widespread adoption." "Cardiovascular MRI in Practice has been written to tackle these issues. This digital video and text resource outlines the systematic approach to CMR interpretation. The depiction of a "core exam" and the modifications used for a variety of patient circumstances are demonstrated using simple visual assessment of the images. Special emphasis on the advantages of CMR relative to other modalities reinforces practical learning objectives, organized so that the reader starts with patient images - as one would in a clinical scenario - and works back to the didactic material." "This innovative DVD and text reference is designed for all cardiologists and cardiovascular radiologists. It is also highly relevant for those in training in order to work through and practice reporting cases using this modality."--BOOK JACKET.
This practical guide to regulatory compliance and good management practice addresses key issues in UST management. The author offers recommendations for developing and maintaining UST management programs that not only minimize the risk of a release but also reduce the potential for costly repercussions. This 5th Edition contains five new chapters that address updates to the EPA's approval of state regulatory and trust fund programs, soil sampling and analytical guidelines, the evolution of tank testing strategies, National Fire Protection Pamphlet 329, new state-of-the-art technology, and SPCC plans. Chapters cover regulatory highlights, inventory control, leak prediction, tank closure, testing, monitoring and release detection, tank design, secondary containment, installation, maintenance and retrofit, storing hazardous substances, remedial action, and more.
