    Ultrasound has a wide range of medical applications. Some of these include obstetrics (monitoring the progress of pregnancy), oncology (monitoring the growth of tumors), cardiology (visualizing the heart function and physiology), biopsy (guiding needles in various procedures), and physiotherapy. For example, today, an estimated 60-70% of pregnant women in the United States undergo ultrasound examination during pregnancy. An estimated 250 million fetal ultrasound examinations are performed every year in the USA. In the last few decades, ultrasound technology has expanded to medical imaging in various other specialties: Anesthesiology, Critical Care, Emergency Medicine, General Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB-GYN), Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Physiatry, Sports Medicine, and Surgery. The increasing demand in the use of ultrasound technology in various biomedical fields points to a future in which medical professionals will be required to possess a general knowledge of ultrasound technology. While currently most medical professionals rely on technicians to perform the imaging studies, there can be a high degree of operator dependent results. Therefore, a solid foundation of the technological properties of ultrasound would give health care providers a competitive advantage in the future. This is one of the first goals of this textbook. This textbook also covers general aspects of diagnostic ultrasound providing an excellent reference for both beginners and professionals. In addition, this textbook has end-of-the-chapter experiments that will help educators conduct labs for students and any other learners to enhance their learning and solidify the practical skills.

    El derecho sucesorio, una rama del derecho privado, se ocupa de regular el traspaso de los bienes y derechos pertenecientes a un individuo fallecido hacia sus herederos. Este proceso, conocido como sucesión mortis causa, tiene como objetivo principal armonizar la libertad de disposición testamentaria del difunto con la salvaguardia de los herederos forzosos, aquellos que legalmente tienen derecho a recibir una porción de la herencia. Dentro del ámbito del derecho sucesorio, se establecen disposiciones normativas que rigen la distribución de los activos, así como los criterios de validez y formalidad de los testamentos. Además, se definen las legítimas, las cuales representan las porciones de la herencia destinadas a ser reservadas obligatoriamente para los herederos forzosos. Esta rama legal desempeña un papel fundamental en garantizar una distribución justa y equitativa de los bienes y derechos de una persona fallecida, al mismo tiempo que protege los derechos de los herederos forzosos y respeta la voluntad testamentaria del fallecido.

    El Whistleblowing, conocido como “aquel que alerta” es esencial en la lucha contra la corrupción, ya que los whistleblowers identifican y reportan conductas ilícitas, contribuyendo así a la integridad estatal y al bien público. En varios Estados la corrupción alcanzada su más alto nivel conllevando pérdidas económicas significativas, en esta obra destacamos que el Whistleblowing se convierte en una herramienta vital, descubriendo un gran porcentaje de fraudes. Por lo tanto, es crucial implementar canales de denuncia efectivos y proteger a los informantes para combatir la corrupción y promover una administración pública ética y transparente. Este sistema no solo busca prevenir delitos, sino también corregir el mal gobierno en la administración pública. El Estado debería buscar estrategias prácticas para tutelar aquellos que denuncian prácticas indebidas, porque su valentía contribuye al bienestar del interés público. Transformándose los “whistlwblowers” en una pieza fundamental en la lucha contra la corrupción y en la promoción de una administración ética y transparente.

    This resource is written for an introductory or intermediate-level college genetics course. The work begins with an exploration of DNA and genome structure, including landmark experiments that contributed to our early understanding of the relationship between DNA, genes, and traits. It continues with the central dogma of molecular genetics: the molecular mechanisms that allow cells to use the information stored in DNA. It also discusses the cause and effect of mutation. The molecular processes are then linked back to classical transmission genetics experiments.
