About this book

As a result of the increasing number of surgical procedures on the brain, head, neck, and spine, postoperative changes are being encountered more frequently on neuroradiological examinations. However, these findings are often unfamiliar to neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons and can be difficult to interpret. This book, which contains numerous images and to-the-point case descriptions, is a comprehensive yet concise reference guide to postsurgical neuroradiology. It will enable the reader to identify the type of surgery performed and the hardware implanted and to differentiate expected sequelae from complications. Topics reviewed include trauma, tumors, vascular disorders, and infections of the head, neck, and spine; cerebrospinal fluid abnormalities; and degenerative diseases of the spine. This book will serve as a unique and convenient resource for both neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This monograph concerns the postoperative findings using CT, MRI, PET, and plain radiographic means to evaluate head, neck, skull, and brain surgeries. I highly recommend this book with its great depth and scope for neurosurgeons seeking their validation postoperatively for minor to major techniques. This is meant to help clinical neurosurgeons with routine patient followup and evaluation.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, February, 2014)

“It fills a gap in the literature and can serve as a handy reference for practicing radiologists. The target audience consists of residents rotating in neuroradiology, neuroradiology fellows, and practicing neuroradiologists. … This is a body of work that covers a broad range of common and uncommon surgical procedures, surgical hardware, and postsurgical complications. It is a useful reference for radiologists at varying levels of training or years of practice. There is no doubt that it will find its place near workstations throughout the world.” (Scott E. Forseen, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2013)
