9780393704143: Brain Imaging Handbook

The past 10 years have seen an explosion in the use of brain imaging technologies to aid treatment of medical as well as mental health conditions.

MRI, CT ("CAT") scans, and PET scans are now common. This will be the first quick reference to these technologies, rich in illustrations and including discussions of which techniques are best used in particular instances of care. Written in a clear and accessible style, Bremner's Brain Imaging Handbook is the place to start in order to obtain an understanding of the field of brain imaging. The initial chapters explain principles and techniques of brain imaging-including MRI, CT, PET, and spectroscopy-with easy-to-understand diagrams and four-color images throughout. The use of imaging in psychiatric practice is carefully explained and emphasized. Bremner outlines the current status of knowledge about brain correlates of normal cognition as well as changes in brain function and structure with brain development and aging. Later chapters summarize the most important information regarding brain imaging as it applies to the areas of schizophrenia, mood and anxiety disorders, substance abuse, childhood onset disorders, and personality disorders. The book ends with a summary of neurological disorders most relevant to the psychiatrist, including helpful descriptions of the application of brain imaging to the differential diagnosis of psychiatric and neurological disorders. Brain Imaging Handbook is an essential text for the library of every mental health care provider, as well as students of neuroscience and neuroimaging.
