Neuroimaging: Clinical and Physical Principles is destined to be the new benchmark among text/reference books for neuroradiology. Unique among all similar titles is this book's complete coverage of ALL imaging modalities and techniques used in modern neuroimaging, from MR (including up-to-the minute developments in fast MR, MRA, and FLAIR), to CT, ultrasonography, angiography, plain film, and myelography. Many topics that are covered little if at all in standard neuroimaging texts are given complete, state-of-the-art descriptions in this book, including: imaging of the head, neck, temporal bone, orbit, and sinuses; normal variants; imaging of pediatric neurologic diseases and developmental anomalies; imaging of trauma to the head, brain, and spine; interventional techniques, both intracranial and spinal; and sedation of both adult and pediatric patients. The book is rounded out with complete coverage of the Physical Principles that underlie modern Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging. The ten chapters in this section provide everything the radiologist must know such as; the physical basics of MR and CT; MR and CT contrast agents and their applications; hardware and safety issues; image acquisition and artifacts; and more! Each chapter is organized to provide fast answers to everyday clinical problems. Numerous tables and lists summarize imaging protocols and differential diagnoses for rapid reference, while the text of each chapter provides a thorough review of the state of the art neuroimaging procedures. Chapters reveal potential imaging findings for numerous conditions and direct the reader towards the imaging technique that will reveal the most informative results under each circumstance.
