About this book


This volume provides a deeper understanding of the diagnosis of brain tumors by correlating radiographic imaging features with the underlying pathological abnormalities. All modern imaging modalities are used to complete a diagnostic overview of brain tumors with emphasis on recent advances in diagnostic neuroradiology. High-quality illustrations depicting common and uncommon imaging characteristics of a wide range of brain tumors are presented and analysed, drawing attention to the ways in which these characteristics reflect different aspects of pathology. Important theoretical considerations are also discussed. Since the first edition, chapters have been revised and updated and new material has been added, including detailed information on the clinical application of functional MRI and diffusion tensor imaging. Radiologists and other clinicians interested in the current diagnostic approach to brain tumors will find this book to be an invaluable and enlightening clinical tool.

From the reviews:

"This book is a unique approach to linking radiographic imaging characteristics to the underlying pathology for improving the diagnosis of brain tumors. … Extensive references are provided for the individual chapters. … In summary, the book is very instructive and provides practical references for the diagnosis of brain tumors in relation to pathology. I do wish the book the success it deserves." (T.J. Vogl, European Radiology, Vol. 13 (6), 2003)

"This slim, well-presented book … provides a broad overview of the imaging aspects of intracranial tumours coupled with succinct clinical and histological correlates. The layout of the book is logical and clear. … the topics are well-covered and appropriate. The quality of the CT and MR images as well as the reproduction of the gross anatomy and histological plates is generally excellent. … The book is …easy to read and as such can be recommended for the general neuroradiologist." (T. Jaspan, Neuroradiology, Vol. 45 (7), 2003)

"The histologic diagnosis as well as the imaging of brain tumors are described properly, objectively, and in detail … . This is a good book for neuroradiology fellows, but it could also be a good study tool for neuroradiologists or general radiologists working in departments with large oncologic practice … . Of course, this book would be of interest to neurosurgeons, oncologists, and other practitioners working with brain tumors. It would be a good addition to a department library." (Sandro Rossitti, Acta Radiologica, Vol. 44 (2), 2003)

"There are clear descriptions of the techniques … with an evaluation of their role in the primary diagnosis of brain tumours and the differentiation of tumour recurrence from radiation necrosis. … The radiological illustrations are numerous and of good quality with a very strong emphasis on MR. … This book is an up-to-date competent review of tumours of the cranial cavity … . It is a useful reference book for those with a specific interest in tumours of the brain tissue itself … ." (Dr. Evelyn Teasdale, RAD Magazine, April, 2003)
