This is an introduction to the use of modern imaging techniques in diagnosing neurological disease. Magnestic resonance imaing (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) have revolutionized radiological investigation and have been especially important in neuroradiology. Increasingly these techniques are being used outside specialist neurological centres and there is therefore a need for an introductory book highlighting thorough, cost-effective investigation. The book is divided into three parts. First, as an understanding of cerebral anatomy is the starting point in image interpretation, there is an anatomical atlas of CT and MRI images with explanatory line drawings of areas of anatomical complexity. Part 2 is an atlas of differential diagnoses summarizing the most common cerebral pathologies. Part 3 contains contributed chapters on the major categories of brain pathology in adults and children. Each chapter is extensively illustrated and referenced and provides state-of-the-art summary of neuroradiological diagnosis. A concluding chapter gives an overview of recent technical advances in cerebral imaging, including diffusion and perfusion imaging and spectroscopy. The book is primarily aimed at general radiologists and radiologists in training but will also provide an excellent introduction to modern neuroradiology for neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists and others with an interest in neuroimaging.
