Descripción del producto
Praise for this book:An excellent textbook accompanied by high quality illustrations illustrating clinical applications, [and the] advantages and limitations of ultrasound examinations of the central nervous system.--RAD MagazineNeurosonology and Neuroimaging of Stroke is a comprehensive reference for the diagnosis and management of cerebrovascular disease using neurosonology. Divided into two main parts, the book opens with an in-depth overview of the fundamental principles of neurosonology. It describes ultrasound anatomy, examination techniques, the essential technical concepts for clinical applications, as well as the pathogenesis of stroke and vascular pathology. The second part of the book presents 30 cases of various levels of difficulty. For each case, the book provides concise descriptions of clinical presentation, initial neuroradiological findings, suspected diagnosis, the angiological questions, and final diagnosis. Each case concludes with a detailed discussion, enabling the clinician to gain a solid understanding of the diagnosed disease and the angiologic questions arising from the case.
Features: Practical discussion of 30 clinical scenarios thoroughly prepares the clinician for the range of frequently encountered problems Consistent presentation aids rapid reference to cases of interest More than 750 high-quality illustrations, including full-color Doppler images Nearly 100 video clips on the accompanying MediaCenter web page demonstrate anatomy, imaging concepts, and select cases included in the book A reference and casebook in a single volume, Neurosonology and Neuroimaging of Strokeis ideal for clinicians seeking to optimize care for patients by enhancing their knowledge of this important diagnostic tool.
