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.

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

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is an excellent book covering brain imaging in geriatric neuropsychiatry. Written and edited by internationally recognized experts in the field, this book is a valuable contribution to psychiatry, neuropsychiatry, and geriatric psychiatry.
Purpose: The purpose of the book, according to the editors, is to educate and advise the clinician who must deal with the protean manifestations of psychiatric disorders of late life.
Audience: The intended audience is researchers and clinicians. The book reviews the current knowledge base of neuroimaging in older adults with neuropsychiatry disorders. It will help guide clinicians in the use of this technology. The book would also be useful to psychiatric residents and fellows in geriatric psychiatry, behavioral neurology, and neuropsychiatry.
Features: Modern methods of neuroimaging are covered including computed tomography, MRI, SPECT, EEG, and MEG. Neuroimaging in normal elderly persons, as well as in patients with Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, mood disorders, and late paraphrenia are covered. An especially useful section is devoted to clinical guidelines for brain imaging specifically addressing "which scan, for whom, when, and why."
Assessment: This is a valuable new book summarizing the state of brain imaging in geriatric neuropsychiatry. Any clinician or researcher involved in this field should read and refer to this book. This is an exceptional contribution to the field.
