Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Noah Emerson, D.O.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book provides a complete basis for functional magnetic resonance imaging, ranging from the physics behind image acquisition to the anatomic/pathologic basis for interpretation.
Purpose: As functional magnetic imaging becomes more technically feasible, the need for a reference book becomes more essential. Through a myriad of examples, diagrams, and descriptions, this book more than meets the needs of clinical practice.
Audience: With such a broad basis, this book functions as a guide for radiologists and neurologists, as well as an introductory book for basic scientists. The editor's vast experience and knowledge is apparent throughout the book.
Features: The book covers functional MRI from concept to interpretation, providing anatomic and pathologic examples and images to not only familiarize readers with the basics of how fMRI works, but also to provide a reference for image interpretation. The sections on diffusion, perfusion, and diffusion tensor imaging, which also help in bringing advanced neuroradiology imaging to the fore, are an added bonus.
Assessment: Functional MRI is at the forefront of neuroradiology imaging. The editor and the accomplished authors provide a readable resource for clinical practice. This small book is geared for practitioners and image interpretation, not basic scientists. What the book lacks in size, it makes up for in substance.
