Overview

This book provides clinicians with a reliable reference, written by prominent figures in neuroradiology and old age psychiatry, which draws together current knowledge of late life mental disorders as revealed by neuroimaging. A highly illustrated introductory chapter provides a useful overview of the various techniques of neuroimaging now available. The following chapters, also extensively illustrated, survey the contribution of neuroimaging to understanding the specific psychiatric disorders of late life, and the book concludes with guidelines for clinicians on the choice of imaging for the examination of their patients. For researchers this is a useful and authoritative review of current knowledge regarding neuroimaging and the older psychiatric patient. Its primary aim, however, is to educate and advise clinicians dealing with the protean manifestations of psychiatric disorder in later life.
