atlas of normal imaging variations of the brain skull and craniocervical vasculature

alexander m mckinney


this atlas presents normal imaging variations of the brain, skull, and craniocervical vasculature. magnetic resonance (mr) imaging and computed tomography (ct) have advanced dramatically in the past 10 years, particularly in regard to new techniques and 3d imaging. one of the major problems experienced by radiologists and clinicians is the interpretation of normal variants as compared with the abnormalities that the variants mimic. through an extensive collection of images, this book offers a spectrum of appearances for each variant with accompanying 3d imaging for confirmation; explores common artifacts on mr and ct that simulate disease; discusses each variant in terms of the relevant anatomy; and presents comparison cases for the purpose of distinguishing normal findings from abnormalities. it includes both common variants as well as newly identified variants that are visualized by recently developed techniques such as diffusion-weighted imaging and multidetector/multislice ct. the book also highlights normal imaging variants in pediatric cases.
atlas of normal imaging variations of the brain, skull, and craniocervical vasculature is a valuable resource for neuroradiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and radiologists in interpreting the most common and identifiable variants and using the best methods to classify them more

vascular anatomy of the spinal cord 2016 radioanatomy as the key to diagnosis and treatment

armin k thron


this book systematically describes the angioarchitecture of the spinal cord. microradiographs of superficial and intrinsic arterial supply and venous drainage patterns provide the anatomical basis needed to understand spinal vascular disorders. these post mortem studies are supplemented by clinical spinal angiographies and case studies. rapid advances in imaging technology have facilitated the solution of many diagnostic problems concerning diseases of the spine and spinal cord. but this is less true for vascular diseases of the spinal cord or diseases secondarily involving them. furthermore, safely using interventional procedures or open surgery still requires a profound knowledge of the vascular anatomy involved. accordingly, a growing demand for training in this special field has become evident over the last 25 years, making improvement of this knowledge in all neuro-specialities dealing with diagnostic and therapeutic problems of spinal disorders a highly desirable more

neurovascular imaging from basics to advanced concepts

saba, luca, raz, eytan (eds.)

vascular neurology, vascular neurosurgery and interventional neuroradiology are independent fields with dedicated training programs. neuroimaging, and in particular what we call “neurovascular imaging” is a unifying factor which can be considered the intersection of these three medical specialties. with this book we aim to cover thoroughly the imaging techniques, potentialities, and present and future applications as applied to all the vascular diseases of the central nervous system from the imaging point of view. this book will comprise eight main sections: (1) the basics, (2) arteries of the head and neck (3) the basics of intracranial arteries (4) diseases of the vessels (5) stroke imaging (6) veins imaging (7) spine imaging (8) pediatrics.

perinatal neuroradiology from the fetus to the newborn

triulzi, f., baldoli, c., parazzini, c., righini, a.

the novel aim of this book is to illustrate the mr imaging features of
the fetal and the neonatal brain by matching prenatal and postnatal images for
a wide range of neurological abnormalities. the focus is on both conventional
and advanced mr imaging techniques, including high-resolution mr autopsy of the
fetal brain.

during the past ten years, neuroradiological evaluation of the neonatal
and the prenatal brain has advanced tremendously. however, even though they are
intrinsically related, these two critical stages in brain development are
usually studied and presented separately. in order to have a sound
understanding of neonatal brain diseases, detailed knowledge of prenatal brain
pathology is immensely helpful; conversely, knowledge of neonatal brain disease
is a prerequisite for understanding many fetal brain lesions. written by experts
in the field, perinatal neuroradiology will be of value for neuroradiologists
and pediatric radiologists, as well as obstetricians and neonatologists.

neonatal head and spine ultrasonography

poretti, andrea, huisman, thierry a.g.m. (eds.)

this book discusses the key features of normal, age-dependent neonatal head ultrasonography as well as the findings of the most common neonatal neurological disorders as visualized by this modality. neonatal head ultrasound is an important diagnostic tool in the initial evaluation of intracranial abnormalities in newborns. head ultrasound is a safe and cost-efficient tool for detecting brain abnormalities in preterm and term neonates, monitoring the progression of brain lesions, and describing the maturation of the developing neonatal brain. to facilitate its use at the bedside, the book is organized by clinical findings and their differential diagnoses. for each disorder, a clinical vignette describing the clinical presentation of the newborn is accompanied by high-quality ultrasound images that depict the abnormal findings and detailed explanations of these findings. this book is a succinct guide to neonatal head ultrasonography for neuroradiologists, neonatologists, and pediatricians.

the thoroughly updated fifth edition of pediatric neuroimaging is a highly illustrated text-reference that describes and illustrates the full range of pediatric disorders diagnosable by modern neuroimaging. covering the diagnosis of brain, spinal, and head and neck disorders in the pediatric patient, the text is rooted in the principle that the proper interpretation of studies requires the acquisition of high-quality images and an understanding of the basic concepts of neuroembryology, normal development, and pathophysiology. much coverage is given to the disorders seen in everyday practice. the emphasis is on ct and mri, which are the optimal imaging modalities in children.
the first two chapters describe useful imaging techniques in this patient population and the imaging manifestations of normal development, to distinguish that from manifestations of disease. the final ten chapters of the book are divided by groups of diseases, with numerous drawings and images that illuminate the underlying pathologic and embryologic/genetic bases of each disorder. the goal is provide a basic approach to groups of diseases, then offer detailed information about the clinical manifestations, underlying biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics and/or pathology of specific disorders.
the book incorporates the essential concepts for obtaining good images and understanding normal development, which helps the reader to distinguish normal developmental changes from disease.

neuroimaging pharmacopoeia

by daniel thomas ginat, juan small, pamela whitney schaefer

this book reviews the imaging features associated with selected classes of pharmaceuticals and drugs on brain, head and neck, and spine and explains the implications of the imaging findings for the neuroradiologist and the clinician. some agents produce characteristic abnormalities with distinctive imaging features, while others have a spectrum of manifestations on imaging. still further agents produce rather nonspecific changes on imaging, requiring a differential diagnosis. in this book, informative cases are depicted by rich images, with concise accompanying explanatory text that reviews the class of agent and the mechanism of action and discusses image interpretation and its significance.
