100% pure MR imaging of the CNS...comprehensive, up to date, essential The imaging quality achievable in MR imaging today was inconceivable just a few years ago. No other subdiscipline has evolved so swiftly while placing ever-greater emphasis on fast and accurate results. This book is intended as an indispensable tool at the workplace, as reference for image interpretation, and even for fast orientation during the examination. Adjunct information is provided that fosters the dialogue with referring physicians: for most diseases and conditions there are summaries of epidemiology, clinical findings, pathogenesis and pathophysiology, as well as basic therapy concepts. Special features: A fast-reference guide, even in tricky cases-differential diagnosis made easy, with high clinical relevance Tips for organizing examinations Reference images for comparison with actual images A reference book for looking up equivocal findings More than 1,300 vivid, high-resolution images from the latest generation of scanners Coverage of peripheral nervous system diseases and MR neurography Answers to questions such as: What technique is best for answering a specific question? What does normal anatomy look like, and what landmarks should be sought? Which differential diagnoses should I consider? What are the optimal equipment settings at my workplace? What therapeutic options does interventional radiology provide? For all radiologists in hospital or office settings, also for neurologists and neurosurgeons.
Written by experts in the field, this beautifully illustrated text/atlas provides the tools you need to directly visualize and interpret cranial CT and MR images. It reviews with exacting detail the normal anatomic brain structures identified on sagittal, coronal, and axial imaging planes. Use this book to make accurate and complete neurological assessments at the earliest possible stages - before reaching the sectioning or operating table.This revised and expanded third edition contains nearly 600 illustrations - most in color - that provide graphic representations of brain structures, arteries, arterial territories, veins, nerves and neurofunctional systems. The illustrations depict anatomic structures in shades of gray similar to the way they are seen in CT and MR images.Highlights of the third edition:- Content and illustrations expanded by more than 20%- High resolution T1 and T2 weighted MR images- Improved anatomic terminology for more accurate descriptions of findingsClinically relevant, easily readable, and clearly organized, this well-illustrated book is an essential introduction to the field for medical students and residents in neurology, neurosurgery, neuroradiology, and radiology. Practicing specialists will also benefit from this practical day-to-day tool.
Over the last decade, some of the greatest achievements in the field of neuroimaging have been related to remarkable advances in magnetic resonance techniques, including diffusion, perfusion, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and functional MRI. Such techniques have provided valuable insights into tissue microstructure, microvasculature, metabolism and brain connectivity. Previously available mostly in research environments, these techniques are now becoming part of everyday clinical practice in a plethora of clinical MR systems. Nevertheless, despite growing interest and wider acceptance, there remains a lack of a comprehensive body of knowledge on the subject, exploring the intrinsic complexity and physical difficulty of the techniques. This book focuses on the basic principles and theories of diffusion, perfusion, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and functional MRI. It also explores their clinical applications and places emphasis on the associated artifacts and pitfalls with a comprehensive and didactic approach. This book aims to bridge the gap between research applications and clinical practice. It will serve as an educational manual for neuroimaging researchers and radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and physicists with an interest in advanced MR techniques. It will also be a useful reference text for experienced clinical scientists who wish to optimize their multi-parametric imaging approach.

The thoroughly updated Fourth Edition of this acclaimed reference describes and illustrates the full range of pediatric disorders diagnosable by modern neuroimaging. This edition includes state-of-the-art information on the use of proton spectroscopy, diffusion imaging, and perfusion imaging in diagnosing metabolic disorders, brain tumors, abnormalities of cerebral microstructure, and abnormalities of blood flow. New entities have been added to the chapters on metabolic disorders, brain injuries, congenital malformations of the brain and skull, cerebellar disorders, brain tumors, phakomatoses, hydrocephalus, and infections. More than 2,400 images complement the text. A List of Disorders with corresponding page numbers enables readers to quickly look up a disease.
This practical text introduces and provides to the reader a fundamental background in the field of neuroimaging. This is achieved through a review (by way of description and illustration) of germane normal anatomy and the radiographic manifestations of commonly encountered disease processes of the central nervous system. Completely referenced and extensively illustrated.
