Sharpen your diagnostic skills for brain and spine disorders with this unique patterns-based approach to learning

Brain and Spine Imaging Patterns presents a systematic approach to understanding one of the most challenging areas of radiologic interpretation. Uniquely organized by various patterns seen on CT, MRI, and plain radiography imaging rather than pathology, the book carefully guides you toward a group of differential diagnoses. You will find an unmatched collection of more than 140 patterns covering: skull defects and lesions; meningeal and sulcal diseases; extracerebral masses; intracerebral masses; mass lesions in the region of the ventricular system; sellar and parasellar masses; vascular legions; lesions in the cortical gray matter, white matter, and deep gray matter; and spinal diseases and lesions.

The easy-to-navigate organization of this book is specifically designed for use at the workstation. The concise text, numerous images, and helpful icons facilitate access to essential information and simplify the learning process.

Features

  • More than 140 patterns and more than 2500 digital-quality images
  • A strong focus on patterns recognized on MRI, including contrast-enhanced MRI
  • Icons, a grading system depicting the relative frequency of findings from common to rare, and the consistent organization of chapters help to clarify information for at-the-bench consultation
  • Many patterns include a set of “Related Patterns” images, which serve as cross-references to similar patterns for a given disorder
  • Special emphasis on the latest diagnostic modalities includes state-of-the-art depiction of image findings
