Readers will find clear guidance on complex diagnostic issues and ample coverage of appearances on both standard CT and MRI methods and newer technologies, including especially CT perfusion, susceptibility- and diffusion-weighted MRI (SWI and DWI), and MR spectroscopy. The book will be an ideal reference manual for neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuro-ophthalmologists, neuro-otolaryngologists, craniofacial surgeons, general radiologists, medical students, and other specialists with an interest in the subject.
