In order to facilitate use, chapters are organized according to anatomic region. Readers will find clear guidance on complex diagnostic issues and ample coverage of appearances on both standard CT and MRI methods and newer technologies, including especially CT perfusion, susceptibility- and diffusion-weighted MRI (SWI and DWI), and MR spectroscopy. The book will be an ideal reference manual for neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuro-ophthalmologists, neuro-otolaryngologists, craniofacial surgeons, general radiologists, medical students, and other specialists with an interest in the subject.

Reviews

“The text is easy to follow and the book is richly illustrated with high quality images. Unique selling points include beautiful surface-shaded rendered images and large-sized high quality images that help the reader understand not only the internal manifestations of disease but also their clinical phenotype. … I highly recommend this textbook.” (Ne-Siang Chew, RAD Magazine, December, 2018)
