This book illustrates in a unique way the most common diseases affecting the human nervous system using different imaging modalities derived from radiology, nuclear medicine, and neuropathology. The features of the diseases are visualized on computerized tomography (CT)-scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-scans, nuclear medicine scans, surgical intraoperative as well as gross-anatomy and histology preparations. For each disease entity, the structural changes are illustrated in a correlative comparative way based on the various imaging techniques. The brain diseases are presented in a systematic way allowing the reader to easily find the topics in which she or he is particularly interested. In Part 1 of the book, the imaging techniques are described in a practical, straightforward way. The morphological built-up of the normal human brain and its vascular supply are presented in Part 2. The chapters of the subsequent Parts 3 to 10 deal with the following diseases involving the nervous system including: hemodynamic, vascular, infectious, neurodegenerative, demyelination, epilepsy, trauma and intoxication, and tumors.

The authors incite the clinician to see the cell, the tissue, the organ, the disorder by enabling him to recognize brain lesions or interpreting histologic findings and to correlate this knowledge with molecular biologic concepts. Thus, this book bridges the gap between neuro-clinicians, neuro-imagers and neuro-pathologists. The information provided will facilitate the understanding of the disease processes in the daily routine work of neurologists, neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neuropathologists, and all allied clinical disciplines.

Neurophysiology in Neurosurgery: A Modern Approach, Second Edition provides updates on the original techniques and overall methodology used in neuromonitoring. The purpose of this book is to describe the integration of neuromonitoring with surgical procedures. Each methodology is discussed in detail, along with chapters that describe how those methodologies are applied to multiple neurosurgical procedures and the evidence used to support those uses. The second edition features surgical procedures section, which focuses on specific surgical procedures and the type of monitoring used during these procedures.

The book’s original chapters have been updated and expanded, with the structure modified to ensure the book is beneficial to both physiologists and surgeons. This book is written for neurosurgeons, neurophysiologists, neurologists, anesthesiologists, interventional neuroradiologists, orthopedic surgeons and plastic surgeons.

Provides a valuable educational tool that describes the theoretical and practical aspects of intraoperative monitoring through example Presents in-depth descriptions of the most advanced techniques in intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring, along with guidelines for the management of neuroanesthesia during MEP monitoring Features a surgical procedures section that focuses on specific surgical procedures and the type of monitoring used during these procedures

Part of the Neurosurgery by Example series, this volume on functional neurosurgery presents exemplary cases in which renowned authors guide readers through the assessment and planning, decision making, surgical procedure, aftercare and complication management of common and uncommon disorders. The cases explore the spectrum of clinical diversity and complexity within functional neurosurgery, including essential tremorthalamotomyParkinson’s diseaseepilepsydystonia, and more.

Each chapter also contains ‘pivot points’ that illuminate changes required to manage patients in alternate or atypical situations, and pearls for accurate diagnosis, successful treatment, and effective complication management. Containing a focused review of medical evidence and expected outcomes, Functional Neurosurgery is appropriate for neurosurgeons who wish to learn more about a subspecialty, and those preparing for the American Board of Neurological Surgery oral examination.
