Raymond N. Rogers was the head of the chemistry experiments for the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP), the team of 24 researchers that performed the first ever in-depth scientific examination... More > of the relic in 1978. He was a professional chemist for 52 years and spent 35 years as a research chemist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, until his retirement in 1988. Rogers shares his frank and often-unvarnished personal perspectives on his 30 year involvement in Shroud studies. He details his own research and backs it up with solid observations, chemical analysis and microscopy. He provides us with his own theory of the Shroud’s image formation and his own opinion on its authenticity. He discusses the role of religion and science and how each has impacted Shroud research. Most importantly, he discusses the possible future for the Shroud itself. Rogers’ unique perspective, straightforward style and in-depth knowledge will both inform and enlighten you.

It may also serve you well as a reference and study material in a fellowship or master's program. There are many books about lasers and laser physics, but these are written by physicists for physicists - and they generally do not address the specific knowledge a doctor needs to be aware of when it comes to laser-tissue-interaction. In this book, I want to cut to the chase. I will give you the background information you need when new to the field of laser medicine or laser dentistry: Your laser: what is that thing you just bought or are considering to use? How does absorption, scattering and transmission in biological tissues take place? On what parameters do the clinical effects depend? How can a laser be used as a minimally invasive tool in modern medicine?< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
This book deals with the human spine with particular emphasis on the lumbar spine. Human gait is traditionally believed to be the exclusive function of the legs. The book presents arguments and... More > data that challenge that belief. It proposes that the spine is the primary engine that makes us move. This engine, inherited from our fish ancestors, was never transferred to any extremities during our long evolutionary journey. From the theoretical and clinical analysis of the normal function of the spine, one can describe the changes that degrade its function. This forces us to define normality in terms of functionality, rather than anatomical perfection. A procedure for the objective measure of spinal function is proposed, and its clinical use discussed. A 35 minutes movie on the function of the spine in both MOV and WMV formats is included.< Less
