About this book


This book deals with imaging of diseases of brain, head and neck, and spine. These fields have substantially advanced during the last few years, driven by both clinical developments and advances in imaging technology. The authors contributing to the volume are internationally renowned experts in their field; their chapters are disease-oriented and cover all the relevant imaging modalities, including standard radiography, CT, nuclear medicine with PET, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging, as well as imaging-guided interventions.

As a result, this book presents a comprehensive review of current knowledge in imaging of the brain, head, neck and spine, as well as in interventional techniques and a selection of "hot topics" in these fields. It will be particularly relevant for residents in radiology, but also very useful for experienced radiologists and clinicians specializing in thoracic disease and wishing to update their knowledge of this rapidly developing field.

From the reviews:

"This is a syllabus associated with the 40th International Diagnostic Course in Davos (IDKD) on neuroimaging held in 2008. … provides an overview of the current state of the art and latest developments in neuroimaging of the brain, head, neck and spine. … used by the course participants and others. … The audience includes radiology residents, general radiologists, and clinicians involved with neuroimaging, and neurosurgeons and neurologists. … It stands alone in our library … and it is a worthy contribution to the literature." (James Milburn, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2009)
