Imaging of Brain Tumors with Histological Correlations: With Histological Correlations
Springer Science & Business Media, Jan 1, 2002 - Medical - 302 pages
This volume provides a deeper understanding of the diagnosis of brain tumors by correlating radiographic image features to the underlying pathology. Theoretical considerations and illustrations depicting common and uncommon imaging characteristics of various brain tumors are presented. All modern imaging modalities are used to complete a diagnostic overview of brain tumors with emphasis on recent advances in diagnostic neuroradiology. The book has been designed as a clinical tool for radiologists and other clinicians interested in the current diagnostic approach to brain tumors.
