Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Scott A. Walker, MD, PhD (University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: This is a comprehensive neuroradiology reference on current and emerging techniques for imaging the nervous system. It places particular emphasis on imaging and treatment of neurovascular disease.
Purpose: This book represents an effort to integrate medical physics, clinical neuroradiology, and neurophysiology to characterize and interpret imaging of the nervous system. By definition, this is a multimodality book and special effort is made not only to describe findings, but also to include protocols and appropriate imaging indications. Certainly this is a valuable addition to the existing textbook literature on neuroimaging. It has up-to-date information on emerging fields such as functional and perfusion imaging, as well as high resolution multidetector CT and magnetic resonance spectroscopy. However, in order to achieve this breadth of information, over 140 contributors are used, many writing a single chapter in their field of expertise. While this book does succeed in integrating the many fields of study all converging on the imaging of nervous system disease, it does so at the cost of consistency from chapter to chapter.
Audience: The audience consists primarily of researchers and academic or private practice neuroradiologists who are interested in keeping abreast of some of the newer developments in the field of neuroimaging.
Features: Not only diagnostic, but also many interventional image guided procedures are covered in this comprehensive reference. A significant portion of the book is devoted to more peripheral topics such as magnetoencephalography, cryo and thermotherapy, as well as xenon enhanced computed tomography for imaging cerebral blood flow. Finally, roughly a fourth of the second volume is devoted to the peripheral nervous system, which makes it more complete than many others.
Assessment: This book is particularly useful for practitioners or researchers in the field looking for a reference that addresses some of the newer techniques and approaches to neuroradiology, especially in the area of cerebrovascular disease. It is somewhat disjointed from chapter to chapter due to the large number of authors, but each chapter taken by itself is readable and of consistently high quality. The book contains a higher level of detail than either the new Neuroradiology: The Requisites, 2nd edition, Grossman and Yousem (Elsevier, 2003), or Osborn's Diagnostic Neuroradiology (Mosby, 1994).
From the Publisher
"Overall, Drs. Latchaw, Kucharczyk, and Moseley have created a comprehensive and innovative book on the diagnosis and treatment of the nervous system. Its integration of radiology, physics, physiology, and clinical medicine is a refreshing and unique approach on the subject. The book provides the reader state-of-the-art techniques and crisp images. Radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and physicists conducting nervous system research would very likely find this book extraordinarily useful." —American Journal of Neuroradiology

"This new two-volume work by Latchaw and colleagues is the most current and complete neuroimaging reference text I have seen to date. The extensive list of contributors is impressive; their vast expertise in diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology, neurology, and neurosurgery has been combined to produce a unique, highly informative, and timely text....This is a very ambitious work. Imaging of the Nervous System is one of the few neuroradiology texts that successfully combine current concepts in diagnostic imaging and interpretation with therapeutic options and techniques." —AuntMinnie.com
