From the reviews:

"This new textbook is focused on the clinical approach of MRI in neuroradiology and covers all the anatomical regions of the head, skull base and spine. … The great originality of this book is certainly its compelementarity to the other textbooks … . The reader may refer very quickly to up-to-date high-quality imaging with clear and exhaustive information on the clinical and pathological aspects of brain and spine diseases. There is no doubt that this atlas will become a standard reference … ." (Xavier Leclerc, Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy, Vol. 26 (2), 2004)

"The book is intended to serve as an introduction to the field of neuroimaging … . It will serve as a useful adjunct or quick reference in a department that does a large amount of neuroradiologically aimed imaging. It will be particularly useful for the more unusual or esoteric conditions. It is a good basic reference for skull base and spinal pathology … . The layout of the book is attractive and the image quality is superb." (J. Willat and G. Quaghebar, European Radiology, Vol. 13 (4), 2003)

"MRI Principles of the Head, Skull Base and Spine: A Clinical Approach is an overview of many of the important pathological processes related to these complex anatomical regions. … The book’s organization contributes to its ease of use. … In each chapter, numerous illustrative cases … enhance understanding of the various pathological processes in a concise, user-friendly manner. … Practicing radiologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons … will also benefit from having MRI Principles of the Head, Skull Base and Spine on their office desk or bookshelves."
