A focused, time-saving review book!

Making an accurate diagnosis is often as much of an art as a science. This valuable book will help you become more confident in the diagnostic and treatment decisions you make every day. Adapted from Jonathan Citow's acclaimed Comprehensive Neurosurgery Board Review, it gives you the information you need to stay current on the latest developments in the rapidly advancing fields of neuroradiology and neuropathology.

The book covers a wide range of topics, from nervous system development, perinatal brain injuries, oncology, and phakomatoses (neurocutaneous diseases) to congenital metabolic diseases, spinal lesions, and skull diseases -- and it points to the methodology for achieving the most accurate diagnosis in even the most unusual cases.

Special Features:

  • Over 350 high-quality pathologic slides and radiographic images, many in full-color
  • An examination of the key histochemical and other staining methods that assist in categorizing pathologic processes
  • A discussion of new radiologic studies (e.g. PET scans, SPECT scans, and CT angiography) that help you in management decisions
  • Updates on rapidly evolving research and clinical advances

This book is valuable for students, residents, and specialists who need to stay up-to-date in these evolving areas. It provides the most relevant information in a clear, easy-to-use, and targeted format.

Unique...excellent study guide option for those preparing for board examinations...numerous pathological slides and radiographic images to assist in improving diagnostic abilities...residents are deeply indebted to Citow and colleagues for their endeavors in creating this excellent revision material for board preparation. --Journal of Neurosurgery

"A collection of approximately 350 illustrations....signs and symptoms are listed for many of the syndromes...very useful to a medical student or resident preparing for a multiple choice examination...complements textbooks with a more systematic, clinical approach." --The Canadian Journal of Neurological Science

''The book is beautifully presented. . .attractive and effective style. . .radiographers and radiation therapists will find the book extremely relevant to their practice. . .DSA images are of a high standard. . .I have no hesitation in recommending this book to practitioners and academics. Radiographers and radiation therapists undertaking higher degress will find the book particularly useful. It deserves a wide audience.'' --The Radiographer

''The text is short, factual, and to the point. . .if you are neurosurgeon in training cramming for an examination, this is the book for you.'' -RAD Magazine
