Cranial Neuroimaging and Clinical Neuroanatomy

Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Computed Tomography

Hans-Joachim Kretscmann, Wolfgang Weinrich

editore: Thieme Publishing Group

pagine: 451

In the ten years since publication of the second edition, the diagnostic information provided by new imaging methods (CT, MRI, PET, US) has improved significantly. Clinicians and specialists must master three-dimensional neuroanatomy of the head in order to localize and interpret pathological symptoms and findings. As in the previous editions, the drawings presented here depict anatomic structures in shades of gray similar to the way they are seen in CT and MR images. All drawings of the atlas portion of the book have been made from cadaver sections. This book is designed as a practical tool. The illustrations of the neurofunctional systems as they are localized in the tomographic planes are meant to orient the reader as to their localization in CT, MR and PET images. They also make it possible to extrapolate the clinical symptoms which correlate to the pathological CT and MR findings. The new, third edition includes both T1 and T2 weighted MR images, as well as enhanced detail throughout.

Magnetic Resonance in Dementia

Frederik Barkhof, Jaap Valk
e altri

editore: Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. K

pagine: 363

This is the first work to take a comprehensive look at the application of magnetic resonance (MR) techniques in the diagnosis, follow-up and therapy monitoring of dementing illnesses. Over the years, MR has proven to be an extremely valuable method of identifying treatable disorders of dementia at an early stage, which is of great importance when keeping in mind that about 1-6 per cent of the population over the age of 65 suffers from dementing illnesses. The authors present an overview of MR findings in neurodegenerative and vascular disorders leading to dementia. In doing so, they also discuss other diseases that lead to cognitive and/or behavioural deterioration such as infectious-inflammatory disorders, toxic encephalopathies, inborn errors of metabolism of adult onset and post-traumatic, post-radiotherapy and post-chemotherapy conditions. This authoritative, well-written and richly illustrated reference work is indispensable for anybody working in the field.

MR Imaging and Spectroscopy of Central Nervous System Infection

Rakesh K. Gupta, Robert B. Lufkin

editore: Plenum Publishing Co.,N.Y.

pagine: 368

Central nervous system (CNS) infections continue to pose a serious problem in health care even with improved knowledge and treatment. Despite the introduction of newer antimicrobial agents and diagnostic techniques, the morbidity and mortality associated with CNS infections remain high. The morbidity associated with CNS infections may be even more important than the death rate especially in developing countries as neurological sequelae may deprive the survivors of intellect and physical ability, demeaning the quality of life and burdening health resources and social services. MR imaging is an important integral part of the protocol for the management of CNS infections and MR spectroscopy is increasingly being utilized in its management. This work is an attempt to provide a comprehensive review of imaging and spectroscopy of the commonly encountered CNS infections in the clinical practice in developing and developed countries. The first chapter deals with basic physical principles of MR imaging and spectroscopy that will help beginners to understand the technical terms used in subsequent chapters. The remaining 10 chapters deal with clinical, pathological, MR imaging and spectroscopy features and their applications in CNS infections. This will help in giving a comprehensive understanding to readers with a background in clinical, radiological, basic MRI, and neurological sciences. The T2 hypointense lesions are a real diagnostic dilemma especially in developing countries for which an algorithm has been suggested in the concluding chapter.
