This second, updated edition ofInflammatory Diseases of the Brainprovides a comprehensive overview of the field from a neuroradiological point of view. In order to ensure a standardized approach throughout, each disease-oriented chapter is again 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. An important focus of the book is the current role of advanced MR imaging techniques, such as diffusion and perfusion MRI and MR spectroscopy, in the differentiation of inflammatory and other brain diseases. All of the authors are recognized experts, and the numerous high-quality and informative illustrations include some not contained in the first edition. This book will be of great value not only to neuroradiologists but also to neurologists, neuropediatricians, and general radiologists.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"This book provides a very good overview of a very complex subject. . This book is a very enjoyable read, providing one with a relatively good grasp of a complicated subject at the same time. . It is also a very good companion for anyone interested in neuroradiology as it will serve as a good quick reference into this mind-boggling subject. A book that deserves a place in a personal library." (Calvin Soh, RAD Magazine, March, 2014)
