The explosion in imaging technology has presented clinicians with an overwhelming number of diagnostic options. Given today's financial constraints, the ability and confidence to order and correlate the findings of these studies is essential. This extensively illustrated book is designed as a comprehensive, clinically oriented reference on the latest imaging techniques utilized in the diagnosis of neurological disease. It provides a solid understanding of the available techniques and an improved ability to order the appropriate tests and interpret the findings. The authors analyze the most common neurological problems as well as some less common disorders. In addition, they discuss the differential diagnostic imaging problems. Covered are both pediatric and adult diseases of the brain and spine. Ketonen (radiologist) and Berg (neurologist) have distilled current knowledge into 100 clinically focused practice points, organized in neurological sub-specialties, such as movement disorders, epilepsy, tumors, vascular diseases and others. The illustrations are produced by state-of-the-art technology. Combining neurology and neuroradiology, the volume is written in a clear, concise style and features numerous clinical examples and over 220 top-quality radiographs (plain film, MRI, CT, etc.) of normal anatomy and common imaging findings. The text provides a clear understanding of the available imaging techniques, and allows the neurologist to select the most appropriate and cost-effective technique and interpret the findings in a knowledgeable manner. This is the fifth and final volume in the 100 Maxims in Neurology series, and, like its predecessors, it is aimed at the practicing neurologist and the neurologist in training. Its emphasis is on clinical practice; this is not a book for the specialist in neuroradiology.
