A single-authored, clinically oriented text on imaging of the head-and-neck, frequently a difficult area for radiology residents and general radiologists to master. Readers will find key diseases highlighted and a guide to differential diagnosis of various conditions. Though the primary image focus is on MRI, correlations with CT and PET images and strong coverage of anatomic variants--to distinguish those from the presence of disease--are major strengths of the book. Other features include excellent image quality, diagrams and tables. While this text does not replace the need for a comprehensive text, it should be an essential resource at the reading station and on rotation.
- Excellent line drawings illuminate key anatomical structures and sites of lesions
- Tables showing anatomic landmarks, classifications and radiographic features of fractures
- Graphic presentation (boxes and more than 1,400 illustrations) makes concepts easy to visualize and remember.
- Differential diagnosis tables are included throughout--essential for both residents learning the field and practicing radiologists.
- Author is former President of both the ASHNR (American Society of Head and Neck Radiology) and the ASNR (American Society of Neuroradiology)
