Most imaging books are ordered according to underlying etiology. However, in real life clinical practice, radiologists usually make their differential diagnoses according to the image patterns, as the etiology is often unknown. Brain Imaging with MRI and CT presents over 180 disease processes and normal variants, grouping entities by these basic patterns to accentuate differential diagnostic features. High quality CT and MRI scans show multiple typical and distinguishing images for each entity. Common and unusual clinical scenarios are described, including dilated perivascular spaces, capillary teleangiectasia, Susac's syndrome and desmoplastic infantile ganglioglioma. Both basic and advanced imaging techniques are used, reflecting the reality of clinical practice. This image-focused book emphasises the most pertinent clinical information relevant to the diagnostic process. Trainee and practising radiologists will find Brain Imaging with MRI and CT an invaluable and clinically relevant tool for learning and teaching.
The first book-length reference to thoroughly describe diagnostic and therapeutic advances in the development of vascular radiology over the last decadeThe last ten years has seen vascular imaging of the central nervous system (CNS) evolve from fairly crude, invasive procedures to more advanced imaging methods that are safer, faster, and more precise--with computed tomographic (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging methods playing a special role in these advances.Vascular Imaging of the Central Nervous System is the first full-length reference text that shows radiologists--especially neuroradiologists--how to optimize the use of the many techniques available in order to increase the sensitivity and specificity of vascular imaging, thereby improving the diagnosis and treatment of individual patients. Each chapter is formatted carefully and divided into two essential parts: The first part describes the physical principles underlying each imaging technique, along potential associated artifacts and pitfalls; the second part addresses clinical applications and novel applications of each method.With a strong focus on the clinical application of each modality or technique in CNS radiology, this book provides in-depth chapter coverage of:* Ultrasound Vascular Imaging (UVI)* Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA)* Magnetic Resonance Vascular imaging (MRV)* Digital subtraction angiography (DSA)* Brain perfusion techniques: CT and MRI* Plaque imaging* Intravascular imaging* Pediatric vascular imagingAlong with numerous illustrations and case studies, Vascular Imaging of the Central Nervous System: Physical Principles, Clinical Applications, and Emerging Techniques is an important book for those faced with choosing from the wide range of choices available for clinical practice.
