About this book

This atlas presents normal imaging variations of the brain, skull, and craniocervical vasculature. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and computed tomography (CT) have advanced dramatically in the past 10 years, particularly in regard to new techniques and 3D imaging. One of the major problems experienced by radiologists and clinicians is the interpretation of normal variants as compared with the abnormalities that the variants mimic. Through an extensive collection of images, this book offers a spectrum of appearances for each variant with accompanying 3D imaging for confirmation; explores common artifacts on MR and CT that simulate disease; discusses each variant in terms of the relevant anatomy; and presents comparison cases for the purpose of distinguishing normal findings from abnormalities. It includes both common variants as well as newly identified variants that are visualized by recently developed techniques such as diffusion-weighted imaging and multidetector/multislice CT. The book also highlights normal imaging variants in pediatric cases.

 

Atlas of Normal Imaging Variations of the Brain, Skull, and Craniocervical Vasculature is a valuable resource for neuroradiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and radiologists in interpreting the most common and identifiable variants and using the best methods to classify them expediently.

Reviews

“Atlas of Normal Imaging Variations of the Brain, Skull, and Craniocervical Vasculature, is destined to become a classic in neuroradiology. Dr. Alexander McKinney has put together in 1330 pages a vast compendium of normal structures/variations encountered in neuroimaging. … Dr. McKinney has done neuroradiology a great favor by putting together this monumental work. … It would be a wise purchase for personal use or for a departmental library. It receives the highest recommendation for a purchase.” (American Journal of Neuroradiology, June, 2018)

“The aim of this book was to compile the most common and identifiable variants of the brain, the skull, and the craniocervical vasculature, and to provide the most facile methods or sequences to identify them expediently. … The presentation of the book is pleasant, clear, and practical. … this extensive and richly illustrated atlas will be of great interest for all radiologists and physicians (seniors, residents, and fellows) dealing with neuroimaging.” (Bruno Grignon, Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy, 2017)
