Overview

Comprehensive, visually appealing, and easy to understand, Osborn’s Brain, by the highly esteemed Dr. Anne G. Osborn, provides a solid framework for understanding the complex subject of brain imaging. Ideal for radiologists, neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, and neurologists at all levels, it combines essential anatomy with gross pathology and imaging, clearly demonstrating why and how diseases appear the way they do. The most immediate "must know" emergent diagnostic topics are followed by non-emergent pathologies, integrating the most relevant information from Dr. Osborn’s entire career of accumulated knowledge, experience, and interest in neuropathology, neurosurgery, and clinical neurosciences.

• Covers the "must-know" aspects of brain imaging together with spectacular pathology examples, relevant anatomy, and up-to-date techniques in neuroradiology - perfect for those new to the field as well as the most experienced neuroradiologist.
• Begins with emergent topics such as trauma, nontraumatic hemorrhage, stroke, and vascular lesions, followed by infections, demyelinating and inflammatory diseases, neoplasms, toxic-metabolic-degenerative disorders, and congenital brain malformations.
• Features more than 3,300 stunning, high-resolution radiologic images and medical illustrations, all of which are annotated to describe the most clinically significant features.
• Includes Dr. Osborn’s trademark summary boxes scattered throughout, for quick review of essential facts.
• Helps readers think clearly
about diagnoses, types of diagnoses, and the various pathologies that can affect the brain.

Reviewer: Scott E Forseen, M.D., M.S.(Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University)
Description: Dr. Anne Osborn, an unquestioned leader in the field of neuroradiology, presents a comprehensive book on the imaging, pathology, and anatomy of the brain unmatched in the number and quality of the illustrations and images.
Purpose: The stated objective is to switch gears from the bullet-point, facts-only approach of the popular Diagnostic Imaging series and teach the reasoning that forms the basis for learning the complex topic of neuroradiology. This is a worthy objective that is rarely achieved in other neuroradiology books, but is achieved in masterful form in this one.
Audience: It is structured primarily as a learning curriculum for diagnostic radiology, neurosurgery, and neurology residents. The author indicates that the book also may be used as a refresher for general radiologists, neurologists, or neurosurgeons. Dr. Osborn reaches her intended audience in expert fashion.
Features: The book is arranged in a logical fashion for its target audience, presenting the most important topics for residents first. At first glance, the book's size may seem daunting. However, it quickly becomes apparent that the vast majority of the space on the pages is occupied by illustrations and imaging studies. No other book on the market offers the range of imaging presentations for common and uncommon neurological conditions found here.
Assessment: Dr. Osborn, one of the most well-respected neuroradiologists in the world, is a master educator and speaker. This book is already a runaway success and will take its place as one of the primary books in resident education.
