Overview

Osborn’s Brain: Imaging, Pathology, and Anatomy is the much-pleaded-for successor to Anne G. Osborn’s 1993 award winning book Diagnostic Neuroradiology (a.k.a. “The Red Book”), which became one of the all-time bestselling neuroradiology texts.

In this highly anticipated 1,200-page volume, Anne Osborn applies her special touch to make complex topics visually appealing and easy to understand.  It wraps the “must know” aspects of brain imaging together with spectacular pathology examples, relevant anatomy, and the most up-to-date techniques in brain imaging.

Osborn’s Brain is organized for curriculum-based learning. Osborn begins with emergent topics, such as trauma, to help the reader learn in the order that is most practical for a resident or practicing radiologist. Indeed, this volume helps readers learn how to think about diagnoses, types of diagnoses, and the various pathologies that can affect the brain.

Even as Osborn “takes readers by the hand” to introduce them to the world of brain imaging, she includes new concepts and diagnoses that will intrigue the most sophisticated neuroradiologist.

The format of this book departs significantly from Osborn’s most recent publications. Rather than using bulleted text, she returns to detailed prose paragraphs designed to be a comprehensive learning resource. Summary boxes highlight the most important points from each section, enhancing functionality and ease of use.

This detail rich content is augmented with over 3,300 stunning, high resolution radiologic images and medical illustrations, all of which are annotated to describe the most clinically significant features.

Osborn’s Brain is easy to read, a visual delight, and a feast of concise, clear information. This impressive volume gives every radiologist and clinical neuroscientist exactly what he or she needs to know, while offering a fascinating journey into Osborn’s brain!

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Scott E Forseen, MD, MS (Medical College of Georgia)
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.
