Transplantation is one of the most exciting fields in medicine. However, learning about kidney transplant has become much harder for those initiating in the field due to the dramatic expansion of knowledge in the past decade. The Kidney Transplant eBook is an interactive book that employs different learning tools in attempt to keep learning fun, interactive and efficient. The image collection is vast, reflecting more than 7 years of work. There are more than 250 original figures, which include graphs, illustrations, pathology slides and radiology images. Videos will help clarify difficult subjects such as anti-HLA antibody assays, and review questions will test your knowledge after each section. If you highlight a key sentence or make notes on a chapter, the segments will be organized by chapter in My Notes and can be reviewed as Study Cards. Finally, problem-based cases describe the thought process, differential diagnosis and management of common conditions affecting kidney transplant recipients. Not enough?

This is an amazing textbook for all learners!! Highly illustrated including pathology figures, ultrasound images and videos explaining concepts difficult to understand. For beginners--students and residents, this will give you an overall idea on kidney transplant and explain in details basic concepts of immunosuppressants and basic immunology. For advanced learners, it will answer your clinical questions and integrate your fragmented knowledges and lead you to further level of understanding with updated references. Must read textbook!!
