A valuable addition to any residency library...highly recommended for the student of neuroradiology preparing for the boards or the CAQ...provides an excellent overview of brain imaging...useful for self-testing...-American Journal of Roentgenology Written by the renowned neuroradiologists at UCSF, this new teaching atlas contains more than 200 cases and 1,000 radiographs illustrating a wide range of diseases and problems in CNS imaging. Each case provides clinical history, images, and a list of differential diagnoses in a format that is tailored for self-testing or quick review. Cases cover valuable teaching points for daily practice from the straightforward to the advanced - offering a challenge to practitioners and residents alike. You'll find a focus on real-life clinical problems, including neoplasms, infections, dural and leptomeningeal processes, white matter disease, trauma, congenital malformations, phakomatoses, and cranial neuropathies. Pearls and pitfalls from the authors target important points and sources of error in image interpretation.
  • Covers pathology, diagnosis, clinical findings, treatment, complications, and prognosis
  • Differential diagnoses are thoroughly covered, highlighting similar clinical presentations
  • User-friendly format makes it ideal as a clinical reference or review book
  • More than 1,000 large radiographs crystallize disease entities
  • Reviews of current literature, with short lists of recommended reading
Teaching Atlas of Brain Imaging is useful at several levels: for residents or fellows preparing for board examinations and rotating through the sub-specialty; for fellows and practitioners looking for help in passing the Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) in neuroradiology; and for general radiologists who will find it to be an excellent text for quick and easy reference in daily practice.
