From the reviews:
"With brief descriptions and a multitude of images, the authors provide an illustrated tour of neuropathology. The discussions include descriptions and imagery from basic plain film findings to the complexity of advanced neuroimaging such as cerebral perfusion. The authors have provided an imaging tour of neuropathology for clinicians' reference. ... useful for any academic level from students to practitioners. ... The presentation of a large number of examples of various neuropathologies is accomplished with brief descriptions followed by a significant amount of images." (Noah Emerson, Doody's Review Service, October, 2009)
"Diagnostic Neuroradiology would be a great addition to the library of anyone interested in neuroimaging and the neurosciences. Specialists who will find this textbook most useful include general diagnostic radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropathologists, and neuroradiologists. ... The book provides a great overview of most of the topics important to understanding neuroimaging. ... Overall, Diagnostic Neuroradiology gives a good general overview of neuroimaging. This book is filled with many great images, which are clearly the strength of this very readable textbook." (Charles Croteau and Eric C. Bourekas, The Lancet, Vol. 8, October, 2009)
