Overview

In this Second Edition of the bestselling Diagnostic Imaging: Brain, each "original" diagnosis has been revised to include the most recent information, updated references, and new image galleries. Moreover, the book features more than 100 new diagnoses. You'll find thousands of new images, all crisply annotated to reinforce the most important points. Richly colored graphics pop off the page, and both typical and variant findings are lavishly illustrated in more than 300 diagnoses. This updated volume will surely become the new standard reference textbook for neuroradiologists, general radiologists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons.

A new companion eBook offers the fully searchable expanded text, hundreds of additional images, and extensive linked references.

Editorial Reviews

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

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.
