Imaging plays an integral role in the diagnosis and intervention of debilitating, often fatal vascular diseases of the brain, such as ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, aneurysms, and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). Written by a world renowned neuroradiologist and pioneer in the early adoption of magnetic resonance (MR) technology, Imaging of Cerebrovascular Disease is a concise yet remarkably thorough textbook that advances the reader's expertise on this subject. The text draws on the author’s vast personal experience, case studies, and traditional educational sources, offering didactic dialogue with accompanying images. A practical clinical resource organized into six chapters, this book offers unparalleled breadth in delineating the diagnostic and treatment usages of modern imaging techniques. Chapter one sets a foundation with extensive coverage of modalities and their applications, including MR, computed tomography (CT) and digital subtraction angiography (DSA). Subsequent chapters cover utilization of imaging techniques specific to underlying pathologies. Key Features: In-depth discussion of medical and neuroradiologic/neurosurgical interventions, focusing on the use of imaging prior to, during, and following treatment Comprehensive text enhanced with more than 700 high-quality images Detailed evaluation of normal brain anatomy, as well as gyral anatomy in brain ischemia, an important subtopic Advantages, disadvantages, mortality, and morbidity of surgery (clipping) versus endovascular techniques (coiling and flow diversion) for aneurysms Presented in a style that facilitates cover-to-cover reading, this is an essential tool for residents and fellows, and provides a robust study guide prior to sitting for relevant certification exams. It is also a quick, invaluable reference for radiologists, neurosurgeons, and neurologists in the midst of a busy clinical day.

This book offers a practical guide to endovascular treatment of cerebrovascular disease and provides a concise reference for the related neurovascular anatomy and the various disorders that affect the vascular system. Fully revised and updated, the information is accessible and easy to read. It discusses fundamental principles underlying cerebral and spinal angiography; interventional techniques, devices, and practice guidelines; and commonly encountered cerebrovascular disorders for which interventional and endovascular methods are appropriate. New topics and features include: intracerebral and intraventricular hemorrhage; intracranial tumor embolization; vasculitis work-up and management; percutaneous carotid artery puncture technique; and pediatric aspects of neurointerventional techniques and disease states. Handbook of Cerebrovascular Disease and Neurointerventional Technique, 3rd Edition, is a portable and concise resource for interventional neuroradiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, cardiologists, and vascular surgeons.

Multidetector Computed Tomography in Cerebrovascular Disease: CT Perfusion Imaging focuses on anatomy and procedural strategy for perfusion CT imaging in clinical neurology and cerebrovascular disease. This text-atlas combines pictures and schematic diagrams to show how this new modality can be used to assess anatomy and guide therapeutic interventions. Beginning with an introductory section discussing the state of the art and background support (including software) related to the technique, the book then reviews applications in managing stroke, thrombosis and tumors. It concludes with a section that evaluates the utility of perfusion CT in comparison with other modalities such as MRI. A comprehensive introduction to further clinical applications of a newly established technology, this volume demonstrates the utility of the technique and covers all relevant theory necessary for its implementation.

Modern vascular neurology, particularly in the emergency setting, often requires a great capacity for analysis and synthesis. Physicians who manage these patients must have acquired multidisciplinary skills, including a good knowledge of clinical neurology and medical imaging, but they may also need to be skilled in cardiology and intensive care. The initial clinical and imaging examinations play a decisive role in the management strategy. This book, written by neurologists and neuroradiologists, is designed to help all physicians involved in the management of neurovascular disease. The format and contents of this book, including the latest guidelines from learned societies, are designed to provide a succinct and practical guide. Although this book is particularly devoted to ischaemic stroke, other neurovascular diseases, especially haemorrhagic stroke, are also discussed. This book should constitute a valuable tool for everyday practice for all medical personnel involved in neurovascular disease.
