Overview

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!

• Covers the top diagnoses in brain, including both common and uncommon entities.

• Uses a concise, highly templated approach—similar to POCKETRADIOLOGIST®—but provides more details for each heading, more references, many more images, and more case data. You get twice the facts, and four times the images as other texts. There is no extra verbiage!

• Each section offers a 4 page introduction covering the anatomy or pathology and imaging issues pertaining to the specific diagnoses covered in that section.

• Offers a vivid, full-color design with over 150 color anatomy and pathology drawings with color tabs keying each section

• Provides detailed coverage of key facts and differential diagnosis.

• Includes an extensive image gallery for each entity with common and variant cases

• Displays a "thumbnail" visual differential diagnosis for each entity.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Noah Emerson, D.O.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: First released in 2004, this book quickly became the must-have/go-to reference in neuroradiology. This second edition, similar in format with increased authoritative author input and updated content, is the new most accurate, up-to-date neuroradiology reference. The most notable change is the addition of 1-2 pages of text at the beginning of the chapters.
Purpose: Through the addition of thousands of new images, many more signature color graphics, and over 100 new diagnoses, this book aims to be the most accurate, up-to-date, user-friendly neuroradiology reference. Although at times subtle, the field sees constant change and the updated content and increased authoritative author input is what will keep this book and series in the hands of radiologists for years to come.
Audience: While not geared toward students as a guided text, this unique pathology-based, user-friendly reference is appropriate for most medical readers from students to subspecialists.
Features: The additional text at the beginning of each chapter adds quite a bit of new information. This, in combination with the updated content and input from additional experts, makes this quite a valuable, worthwhile book. However, I was sorry to lose the differential diagnosis case examples.
Assessment: Not unlike its predecessor, this book covers the gamut of brain neuroradiology topics with excellent graphics and case examples highlighting. This edition has maintained the user-friendly glossary and chapter/page numbering system. The only possible negative is the absence of the individual differential case.

From The Critics
Reviewer: Daniel W. Kirkham, MD (University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: This comprehensive neuroradiology textbook is organized in two parts - one pathology-based and the other anatomy-based. The outline format, in addition to several innovative features, makes accessing large amounts of information easy.
Purpose: The topic of neuroradiology is presented in a straightforward format that is easy to read and allows quick access to the important details.
Audience: This book is written for both the learning resident as well as the seasoned radiologist. The author states that the book is "an exciting, brand new approach to teaching textbooks in diagnostic radiology.
Features: It covers the full gamut of neuroradiology diagnoses, including malformations, trauma, vascular, neoplastic, infectious, and metabolic disorders. In an outline format, the key imaging findings, differential diagnoses, pathology, and clinical issues are discussed. The most obvious innovative features are the high yield "Key Fact" box and the box of thumbnail images which contains representative images of the top four differential diagnoses. In addition to the excellent radiographic images are the corresponding gross pathologic images. One disappointing aspect of this new book is the limited index.
Assessment: This is an excellent quick reference textbook for the majority of neuroradiologic diagnoses. The innovative features provide quick access to very high-yield information. Compared to Dr. Osborn's previous book, Diagnostic Neuroradiology (Mosby, 1994) , this book offers many exciting features, excellent pictures, and an organization structure that lives up to the hype of "an exciting, brand-new approach to teaching."
From the Publisher
"The strengths of this text lie in the extensive information, the vast image collection, and the easy-to-read format. This book should serve as a valuable resource to the experienced neuroradiologist, or the advanced trainee preparing for oral boards or the CAQ exam." -AuntMinnie.com, Aug. 2004

"This is one of a series of eagerly anticipated new texts. The graphic illustrations and images are of the highest quality. This book is a wonderful addition to anyone's library. When you open this book, you do so with reverence, noting the care that went into selecting the fine images and illustrations. Dr. Osborn and her co-editors should be congratulated for providing a new textbook that excels many others in the pool of neuroradiology texts, and one that will be treasured for years." - Journal of Neurosurgery, Feb. 2005

"Diagnostic Imaging: Brain, Diagnostic Imaging: Spine, and Diagnostic Imaging: Head & Neck...present the reader with a remarkable set of beautifully illustrated and highly educational textbooks.

"[T]he color illustrations alone are worth the price of admission, not only because they convey the essentials of the diagnosis, but also because they spectacularly correlate with the CT and MR images...Buy this set of three books, recommend them to all those in neurosciences, make sure your departmental library has every one of the volumes, and refer to them often."- AJNR Aug. 2005
