Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: Visualization in neuroscience has progressed tremendously since Cajal's times. The ability to represent seen images accurately has permitted a major jump in microscopy. A book on biomedical visualization is, therefore, justified.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to address different aspects of imaging as applied to neuroscience. This worthy objective is clearly met by recognized scientists in the field.
Audience: Neuroscientists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons are the targeted readers for this book.
Features: Twenty-one authors contribute 11 chapters in this well-written, 351-page book. The chapters encompass all aspects of pertinent neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuropathology, with a comparison of all imaging modalities available for clinical practice. The illustrations are of very good quality, the tables and graphs, pertinent to the text, and the references, up-to-date. The index is very helpful.
Assessment: Neuroscientists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons alike will find new information on possible imaging modalities to be applied to their research. This is an essential book for medical libraries in neuroscience, neurology, and neurosurgery.
