Diagnostic Imaging: Brain

Front Cover
Authored and edited by one of the world's most prominent neuroradiologists, this innovative text is certain to become the new standard among diagnostic brain imaging references. The second volume in the new Diagnostic Imaging Series from Amirsys and Saunders, it features a templated full-color format that makes finding information much easier. Each chapter presents all of the information readers need to pinpoint a diagnosis. Coverage of each entity addresses Clinical Presentation · Pathologic Features · Imaging Findings for the appropriate modalities · and Differential Diagnosis lists. In addition, chapters have detailed anatomic drawings in full color, an extensive image case gallery, and a visual "thumbnail" differential diagnosis. Numerous surgical, gross and histologic pathology photographs are included. No other neuro imaging text is as comprehensive and user-friendly. The unique bulleted format provides efficient reading, with the same information in the same place-every time! It's as if an expert has done the highlighting for you!
