About this book

Modern vascular neurology, particularly in the emergency setting, often requires a great capacity for analysis and synthesis. Physicians who manage these patients must have acquired multidisciplinary skills, including a good knowledge of clinical neurology and medical imaging, but they may also need to be skilled in cardiology and intensive care. The initial clinical and imaging examinations play a decisive role in the management strategy. This book, written by neurologists and neuroradiologists, is designed to help all physicians involved in the management of neurovascular disease. The format and contents of this book, including the latest guidelines from learned societies, are designed to provide a succinct and practical guide. Although this book is particularly devoted to ischaemic stroke, other neurovascular diseases, especially haemorrhagic stroke, are also discussed. This book should constitute a valuable tool for everyday practice for all medical personnel involved in neurovascular disease.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

Selected as “Highly Commended” at BMA Medical Book Awards for 2014.

“‘I believe the book’s strength is in providing a single source reference text for its intended audience which provides relevant radiological and neurological explanation and guidance to allow the reader better understanding of neurovascular emergencies, the imaging required, and evidence-based guidance to the appropriate choice of investigations. … It is a good-sized hardcover book, easy to handle and to use, with good quality paper and layout of text and images.’” (BMA Medical Book Awards, September, 2014)

“This book presents an approach to acute neurovascular illness from a neuroimaging perspective. … The intended audience is healthcare professionals at any level, trainee through practicing physician. … This can be viewed as a source of information on the use of imaging-based neurological diagnostics in the acute stroke setting.” (Mark N. Rubin, Doody’s Book Reviews, January, 2014)
