Thieme congratulates Pina C. Sanelli on being selected through New York journal for its prestigious most sensible medical professionals 2014 list.

In a industry choked with case studies, this one stands proud since it presents additional information, extra targeted discussions of differential diagnoses, and extra better half situations than its rivals, whereas nonetheless preserving an excellent breadth of insurance. The situations symbolize an important and well timed improve from the 1st edition. Doody corporations, Inc.

Case-Based mind Imaging, moment Edition, an replace of the very hot Teaching Atlas of mind Imaging, has complete insurance of the newest technological developments in mind imaging. It includes greater than one hundred fifty situations that offer specific dialogue of the pathology, therapy, and diagnosis of universal and infrequent mind illnesses, congenital/developmental malformations, cranial nerves, and extra. This entire case-based assessment of mind imaging can assist radiologists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons of their education and day-by-day practice.

Key Features:

  • More than 1,000 up-to-date high-resolution photographs created on state of the art equipment
  • Advanced CT and MR imaging introduces readers to present imaging modalities
  • Pathological descriptions of radiologic diagnoses support make clear the pathophysiology of the disease
  • Pearls and pitfalls of imaging interpretation for fast reference
  • Authors are world-renowned mind imaging experts

Radiology citizens, neuroradiology fellows getting ready for board tests, and starting practitioners will locate this publication a useful software in studying the way to thoroughly diagnose universal and infrequent pathologies of the brain.

1 (continued) (D) An axial T1W image shows background T1 hyperintensity, which corresponds to mineralization/calcification. (E, F) Axial and coronal T1W postcontrast images reveal enhancement within the posterior and left anterior aspects of this mass. There is leftward displacement of the falx as well as the callosomarginal and pericallosal branches of the anterior cerebral arteries. The grades cannot be reliably differentiated with imaging. Common symptoms include seizure, headache, and focal neurologic deficits that depend on the location of the lesion.

A large infiltrative heterogeneously T2 hyperintense mass is present on the (A) T2 FLAIR image. indd 14 B typical heterogeneous enhancement and transcallosal extension, sometimes referred to as a “butterfly glioma” given its morphology. 11/8/12 11:14 PM I NEOPLASMS–SUPRATENTORIAL 15 Fig. 4 Transcallosal extension of GBM. Postcontrast T1W image demonstrates a right parieto-occipital peripherally enhancing mass with extension across the splenium of the corpus callosum. Again, the nonenhancing central component likely reflects necrosis or cystic change.

1 (A) Axial NCCT reveals a heterogeneous right frontal lobe mass with curvilinear internal calcifications, central hypoattenuation consistent with cystic change, and subtle expansion of the right frontal lobe cortex and white matter. (B) The corresponding axial T2W image demonstrates T2 prolongation involving the right frontal lobe cortex and subcortical white matter. There is central T2 hyperintensity that is most consistent with cystic formation as well as foci of internal T2 hypointensity corresponding to the calcifications seen on CT.
