Features: Fifty-four expert authors contribute 25 chapters in this book. The contents comprise the broad realm of neuroradiology and applied neuroimaging, in particular when it is related to surgical applications of localized lesions and neuronavigation procedures of the brain and spine. Well-known authorities in the field of neurosurgery and neuroradiology author the chapters in this book which directs the reader into a different universe of neurosurgery:the one that will remain constant throughout the next generation of procedures that will be not only safer but also more precise.
