About the Authors
  • Faced with a single neuroradiological image of an unknown patient, how confident would you be to make a differential diagnosis? Despite advanced imaging techniques, a confident diagnosis also requires knowledge of the patient's age, clinical data and the lesion location. Pattern Recognition Neuroradiology provides the tools you will need to arrive at the correct diagnosis or a reasonable differential diagnosis. This user-friendly book includes basic information often omitted from other texts: a practical method of image analysis, sample dictation templates and didactic information regarding lesions/diseases in a concise outline form. Image galleries show more than 700 high quality representative examples of the diseases discussed. Whether you are a trainee encountering some of these conditions for the first time or a resident trying to develop a reliable system of image analysis, Pattern Recognition Neuroradiology is an invaluable diagnostic resource.

    • Methods for analysing images and sample dictations/templates provide a structured way of thinking and reporting to better utilize limited time
    • The basic building blocks are provided in an easily extractable format making this book practical and usable
    • Over 700 high quality scans give examples of the diseases discussed and allow for comparison as pattern recognition skills are developed

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Ease of readability, abundance of high-yield images, and systemizing an approach to radiologic interpretation are three characteristics that concisely summarize the essence of Pattern Recognition Neuroradiology … the authors illustrate a novel approach to diagnosing neurological disorders.' Academic Radiology

    'The image galleries offer a vast collection of images, and particularly of the brain. All images are of an extremely high quality and resolution, thus depicting the condition or lesions sufficiently. The image galleries provide an excellent visual aid in recognising pattern irregularities. Images are clear and well labelled with adequate explanatory text conveying what each image shows. While this book is admittedly aimed at the level of radiologists or trainee radiologists, I believe this book could be [an] invaluable diagnostic resource for those who are interested in improving their ability to recognise and interpret irregularities and abnormalities on MRI and CT images of the brain and the neck. This book provides the reader with an abundance of useful information that is sure to develop their knowledge and improve their overall practise.' Synergy Imaging and Therapy Practice

    'The organization of the book effortlessly guides readers to develop and practise these skills. This is a great read for learners in the fields of neurology and radiology.' Doody's Review Services

    '… a well-written reference book styled in a somewhat unorthodox but very appealing format … well-organized … [The authors'] novel approach to neuroimaging analysis and interpretation can be transferred to other imaging subspecialties. This book would be well suited for radiology, neurology, and neurosurgical residents as well as neuroradiology fellows, staff radiologists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons … For its price, practicality, and usefulness, I strongly recommend Pattern Recognition in Neuroradiology.' American Journal of Roentgenology
