Overview

Established as the leading textbook on imaging diagnosis of brain and spine disorders, Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain and Spine is now in its Fourth Edition. This thoroughly updated two-volume reference delivers cutting-edge information on nearly every aspect of clinical neuroradiology. Expert neuroradiologists, innovative renowned MRI physicists, and experienced leading clinical neurospecialists from all over the world show how to generate state-of-the-art images and define diagnoses from crucial clinical/pathologic MR imaging correlations for neurologic, neurosurgical, and psychiatric diseases spanning fetal CNS anomalies to disorders of the aging brain. Highlights of this edition include over 6,800 images of remarkable quality, more color images, and new information using advanced techniques, including perfusion and diffusion MRI and functional MRI. A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Stephen C. Voron, MD (University of Utah School of Medicine)
Description: The second edition of this book consists of 32 chapters: 15 on the brain, including the skull base, temporal bone, and orbit; 6 on the spine; and 11 primarily on physics. Compared with the first edition, published in 1991, the chapters on the temporal bone and on functional MRI of the brain are new, and other chapters have been extensively revised and expanded.
Purpose: The editor has fulfilled his goal of improving upon the definitive work on MRI of central nervous system diseases. This field has continued to grow during the past five years, and this up-to-date revision is of true value.
Audience: Dr. Atlas has assembled 57 contributors, all experts and educators in their fields, including physicists, neuropathologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neuroradiologists, to compile a comprehensive book on the science as well as the technical and clinical aspects of MRI. As a result, this book should appeal to radiologists, neuroradiologists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons as well as to neuroscience personnel needing a clinical reference.
Features: The book is well illustrated, including MRI scans of very good quality, colored artist's renditions, colored histopathology and, new to this revision, colored pathology specimens. Each chapter begins with a chapter outline and ends with an extensive reference list.
Assessment: This revision is a commendable update of a classic text. In addition to new features mentioned above, it includes more than 500 new pages and is well worth purchasing by owners of the first edition. At $245.00, the book is reasonably priced for an extensively illustrated radiology work. I recommend the book to trainees and experienced individuals in the appropriate specialties, hospital and department libraries, and bookstores.

A comprehensive text-reference on MRI of the central nervous system that presents the science as well as the current technical and clinical aspects, for neuroradiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and clinicians who interact to discuss the results of MRI in patients with neurologic disease. Among the changes in this revised and updated edition are the addition of new chapters which encompass not only new technology (such as functional MRI), but also new and potential clinical applications based on recently described clinicopathologic MRI correlations (e.g., diseases of the temporal bone). Thoroughly illustrated, the ample use of color specimens is a new feature in this edition for the purpose of presenting characteristics of lesions that are or may be discernible in advanced MR techniques.
