About this book

The main purpose of this book is to present emerging neuroimaging data in order to define the role of primary and secondary structural and hemodynamic disturbances in different phases of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and to analyze the potential of diffusion tensor MRI, tractography and CT perfusion imaging in evaluating the dynamics of TBI. The authors present a new MRI classification of brain stem and hemispheric cortical/subcortical damage localization that is of significant prognostic value. New data are provided regarding the pathogenesis and dynamics of diffuse and focal brain injuries and qualitative and quantitative changes in the brain white matter tracts. It is shown that diffuse axonal injury can be considered a clinical model of multidimensional “split brain” with commissural, association and projection fiber disorders. The book will be of interest for neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists and others with an interest in the subject.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book would be of interest to those pursuing advanced training in neuroimaging, such as fellows of neuroradiology. … The images, particularly of MRI tractography of corticospinal tracts and those of CT perfusion studies are particularly useful. … The discussion of various forms of MRI imaging in the evaluation of traumatic brain injury … and the newly proposed classification of brain injuries with MRI, should prove particularly useful for those interested in this field of study.” (Bennett S. Greenspan, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2014)
