About this Reference Work

Vascular Neurology, Vascular Neurosurgery and Interventional Neuroradiology are independent fields with dedicated Training Programs. Neuroimaging, and in particular what we call "Neurovascular Imaging" is a unifying factor which can be considered the intersection of these three medical specialties. With this book we aim to cover thoroughly the imaging techniques, potentialities, and present and future applications as applied to all the vascular diseases of the central nervous system from the imaging point of view. This book will comprise eight main sections: (1) The Basics, (2) Arteries of the Head and Neck (3) The basics of Intracranial Arteries (4) Diseases of the vessels (5) Stroke Imaging (6) Veins Imaging (7) Spine Imaging (8) Pediatrics.

About the authors

Luca Saba received the MD from the University of Cagliari, Italy in 2002. Today he works in the A.O.U. of Cagliari. His research fields are focused on Multi-Detector-Row Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance, Ultrasound, Neuroradiology, and Diagnostics in Vascular Sciences.

He has published over 100 articles as the primary author in international peer-reviewed journals including American Journal of Neuroradiology, Atherosclerosis, European Radiology, European Journal of Radiology, Acta Radiologica, Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology, Journal of Computer Assisted Tomography, American Journal of Roentgenology, Neuroradiology, Clinical Radiology, Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery, Cerebrovascular Diseases. In addition to his well cited research papers, Dr. Saba is a well known speaker having spoken over 45 times at national and international meetings.

Dr. Saba has won 15 scientific and extracurricular awards during his career. He has presented more than 450 papers and posters in National and International Congress (RSNA, ESGAR, ECR, ISR, AOCR, AINR, JRS, SIRM, AINR).  He wrote 9 book-chapters and he is Editor of 6 books in the field of Computed Tomography, Cardiovascular imaging, Plastic Surgery Imaging, Gynecological Imaging and Neurodegenerative imaging.

He is member of the Italian Society of Radiology (SIRM), European Society of Radiology (ESR), Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), American Roentgen Ray Soci

ety (ARRS) and European Society of Neuroradiology (ESNR) and serves as Reviewer of more 30 scientific Journals.

Dr. Eytan Raz currently works at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City. He graduated from Sapienza University of Rome School of Medicine in 2006 where he also obtained his Radiology Specialty in 2011. He completed his Fellowships in "Diagnostic Neuroradiology" and "Interventional Neuroradiology" at NYU Langone Medical Center. He is the author of more than 40 publications in high impact factor, peer-reviewed journals such as Radiology, AJNR, AJR, Neurology and Brain Pathology. His fields of expertise include neurovascular diseases, traumatic brain injury and multiple sclerosis. In 2012 he was appointed Editor for the Fellows' Portal of AJNR. He is reviewer for more than 10 journals and has presented more than 70 abstracts at international conferences. He is a member of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), the American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR), and the Italian Society of Neuroradiology (AINR).
