Imaging of the Brain provides the advanced expertise you need to overcome the toughest diagnostic challenges in neuroradiology. Combining the rich visual guidance of an atlas with the comprehensive, in-depth coverage of a definitive reference, this significant new work in the Expert Radiology series covers every aspect of brain imaging, equipping you to make optimal useofthe latest diagnostic modalities.
Compare your clinical findings to more than 2,800 digital-quality images
of both radiographic images and cutting edge modalities such as MR, multislice CT, ultrasonography, and nuclear medicine, including PET and PET/CT.
Visualize relevant anatomy more easily thanks to full-color anatomic views throughout.
Choose the most effectivediagnostic options, with an emphasis on cost-effective imaging.
Apply the expertise of a diverse group of world authorities from around the globe on imaging of the brain.
Use this reference alongside Dr. Naidich's Imaging of the Spine for complementary coverage of all aspects of neuroimaging.

"This book is very well written and explains concepts extremely well. The section on anatomy is particularly detailed, more than available in any other mainstream neuroradiology textbooks...It is also well supported by high quality images and illustrations, both radiological and histological...It imparts detailed knowledge of basic concepts and the required core fundamentals in neuroradiology that are not available in the modern textbooks. It stimulates one to appreciate this specialist subject and creates a hunger for more. With the basics mastered, one can then enjoy all the challenging puzzles of neuroradiology that nature throws at us. This book is suitable for everyone involved in radiology, whether one is a trainee or a consultant, as it provides a foundation in understanding the brain. Once started, you will find it hard to stop as it is very readable and digestible. To this end, the authors have succ eded in achieving their set goal."
