Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Although this book is said to be aimed at the medical student, those in radiology who deal daily with their neurology colleagues may find this to be a useful reference. Presented in a highly readable format, the essentials of neurology are supplemented with extensive tabular material, highlighted fundamentals, appropriate imaging, and pictures of pertinent patients. The format of the book is very pleasing with excellent drawings, crisp charts, and easy-to-read summary charts. ...This short text provides an excellent synopsis for those wanting a review of neurology.—American Journal of Neuroradiology...A little (or medium sized) gem, we highly recommend it.. The 438 illustrations and 210 tables make for quick and easy reference and there are many excellent neuroimaging studies of various modalities.—ACNR (Advances in Clinical Neuroscience and Rehabilitation)
