This book provides a comprehensive overview of inflammatory brain diseases from a neuroradiological point of view, encompassing both infectious (e.g., viral encephalitis and pyogenic brain abscess) and non-infectious (e.g., multiple sclerosis) diseases. Neuroimaging contributes greatly to the differentiation of infectious and noninfectious brain diseases and to the distinction between brain inflammation and other diseases. In order to ensure a standardized approach throughout the book, each chapter is subdivided into three principal sections: epidemiology, clinical presentation and therapy; imaging; and differential diagnosis. A separate chapter addresses technical and methodological issues and imaging protocols. All of the authors are recognized experts in their fields, and numerous high-quality and informative illustrations are included. This book will be of great value not only to neuroradiologists but also to neurologists, neuropediatricians, and general radiologists.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This . textbook focuses specifically on inflammatory diseases of the central nervous system. This is intended . review of inflammatory diseases that affect the brain. . The target audience includes neuroradiologists, neurologists, child neurologists, and general radiologists. . The summary tables in the chapters are also very helpful in correlating clinical and imaging features. . This is a useful overview of inflammatory diseases of the central nervous system. Its strengths include the extensive collection of images of both rare and common CNS inflammatory diseases." (Jonathan L. Carter, Doody's Review Service, August, 2009)
