The premier guide to digital marketing that works, and a solid framework for success The Digital Marketing Playbook is the comprehensive guide to cracking the digital marketing ′code,′ and reaching, engaging, and serving the empowered consumer. Based on the industry′s leading certification from the Digital Marketing Institute (DMI), this book presents an innovative methodology for successful digital marketing: start with the customer and work backwards. A campaign is only effective as it is reflective of the consumer′s wants, needs, preferences, and inclinations; the DMI framework provides structured, implementable, iterative direction for getting it right every time. The heart of the framework is a three-step process called the 3i Principles: Initiate, Iterate, and Integrate. This simple idea translates into higher engagement, real customer interaction, and multichannel campaigns that extend even into traditional marketing channels. The evolution of digital marketing isn′t really about the brands; it′s about consumers exercising more control over their choices. This book demonstrates how using this single realization as a starting point helps you build and implement more effective campaigns. Get inside the customer′s head with deep consumer research Constantly improve your campaigns based on feedback and interactions Integrate digital activities across channels, including traditional marketing Build campaigns based on customer choice and control Digital marketing turns traditional marketing models on their heads. Instead of telling the customer what to think, you find out what they already think and go from there. Instead of front-loading resources, you continually adjust your approach based on real interactions with real customers every day. Digital marketing operates within its own paradigm, and The Digital Marketing Playbook opens the door for your next campaign.

Despite public perception, osteoporosis remains a widespread, devastating disease, and a very serious and costly public health threat. Early detection and treatment must be a priority for primary health care providers. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is the principal x-ray technology used to diagnose osteoporosis in its early, asymptomatic stages, to assess treatment efficacy, and to guide treatment decisions. It remains the gold standard today. A DXA Primer for the Practicing Clinician: A Case-Based Manual for Understanding and Interpreting Bone Densitometry is developed around real cases of patients’ DXA measurements. The content is derived from presentations given by the authors at a national society training course and exemplifies not only the complete body of education provided through these lectures but the full range of previously undiscussed nuances as well. This practical, easy-to-read title provides the day to day problems of DXA usage that new users may encounter and that training courses do not have time to provide in detail. The central focus of the book is the presentation of what is normal and what is problematic in the use of DXA, depicting various scenarios with real case histories of patients, their corresponding DXA images and the data that explain the problems. Unique in approach and presentation, this case-based manual will be of immense value to all practitioners -- and students – interested in providing optimal diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis.

The skeleton is a metabolically active organ that undergoes continuous remodeling throughout life. This remodeling is necessary both to maintain the structural integrity of the skeleton and to fulfill its metabolic functions as a storehouse of calcium and phosphorus. Skeletal remodeling can be triggered by changes in mechanical forces or microdamage and by hormonal response to changes in circulating calcium and phosphorus levels. The skeleton also serves as the second line of defense against acidosis, and it is able to liberate buffers in the form of inorganic phosphates. Disorders of Bone and Mineral Metabolism is a multi-authored clinical update that covers all major aspects of bone and its mineral disorders. The first chapter is divided into different sections describing various minerals of clinical importance followed by regulation of mineral metabolism by parathyroid hormone, and vitamin D. There is a very good balance of basic information to act as a primer for the reader and the supporting experimental evidence. The complicated and often difficult topics of mineralization of bone and its regulation and other aspects of mineral metabolism are presented in a particularly clear and interesting manner. A long and useful bibliography follows every chapter. This update contains thorough discussions of the pathophysiology, diagnostic techniques, and therapy of mineral diseases with a wealth of detail. The book is a very useful reference for those interested in bone and mineral physiology and disease, be it a general physician or a nephrologist.

Since the first publication of Thyroid Ultrasound and UGFNA in 2000, ultrasound has become established as a primary tool for diagnosing and managing thyroid disease. Indeed, over the last 10 years ultrasound has become a catalyst for bringing together endocrinologists, surgeons, radiologists, and pathologists to create a multidisciplinary approach to the management of thyroid disease which is and will continue to benefit our patients.
