In this monograph, the authors summarize their findings in complex neuroimaging work (cranio-, spondylo-, myelo- and angiography as well as CT and MR imaging of the brain and spine) during their longstanding experience at the N. Burdenko Neurosurgical Institute in Moscow. The book begins with a review of modern neuroimaging techniques: CT and MR angiography, perfusion and diffusion imaging, tractography, spectroscopy and functional MR imaging.The problems and various other aspects of diagnosis of intra- and extra-axial brain tumors (more than 30,000 verified cases) as well as of cerebrovascular, infectious, demyelinating, degenerative and traumatic brain and spine lesions are discussed. The volume is well illustrated with angiographic, CT and MR images of complex diagnostic studies. The numerous images represent a "visual text," which can be used as an atlas by practical clinicians.This book is a comprehensive reference manual for neurologists, neurotraumatologists and radiologists. It may also be of interest to technicians, medical physicists, students and other specialists interested in neurovisualization and diagnostic imaging.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"With brief descriptions and a multitude of images, the authors provide an illustrated tour of neuropathology. The discussions include descriptions and imagery from basic plain film findings to the complexity of advanced neuroimaging such as cerebral perfusion. The authors have provided an imaging tour of neuropathology for clinicians' reference. . useful for any academic level from students to practitioners. . The presentation of a large number of examples of various neuropathologies is accomplished with brief descriptions followed by a significant amount of images." (Noah Emerson, Doody's Review Service, October, 2009)"Diagnostic Neuroradiology would be a great addition to the library of anyone interested in neuroimaging and the neurosciences. Specialists who will find this textbook most useful include general diagnostic radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropathologists, and neuroradiologists. . The book provides a great overview of most of the topics important to understanding neuroimaging. . Overall, Diagnostic Neuroradiology gives a good general overview of neuroimaging. This book is filled with many great images, which are clearly the strength of this very readable textbook." (Charles Croteau and Eric C. Bourekas, The Lancet, Vol. 8, October, 2009)
