Item description for Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Ischemic Stroke (Medical Radiology / Diagnostic Imaging) by K. Sartor...
The imaging of stroke has undergone significant changes owing to the rapid progress in imaging technology. This volume, comprising three parts, is designed to provide a comprehensive summary of the current role of MR imaging in patients with ischemic stroke. The first part outlines the clinical presentations of stroke and discusses the diagnostic efficacy and therapeutic impact of MR imaging. The second and third parts form the core of the volume, and are based on a novel approach in that the topic is presented from two very different viewpoints. Part 2 provides a detailed presentation of the distinguishing features of stroke from the radiologist's perspective. By contrast, part 3 addresses the needs of the clinician, documenting specific stroke syndromes and their correlates on MR imaging. The overall aim has been to create a well-illustrated volume with broad appeal that links pathology, radiology and stroke medicine in an informative manner.

Great stroke MRi book Feb 14, 2006
Prof R Von Kummer, one of the opinion leaders in the domain of stroke neuroimaging has gain managed to put together a very nice book on MRI of stroke. As we know there are quite a few books on this subject around at the moment. This is one of the better ones. especially since it does not just concentrate on acute ischemia, a subject on which there has been quite a few not-so-great books written recently, but he has chosen to integrate also other the imaging of other ischemic syndromes in this textbook whci at the moment is the definitive work in this area. Also, he has tried and managed to get authors from the different schools of opinion on the subject to contribute so that there is for once a balance in the opinions that you will not find elsewhere. This makes this book a necessary addition to any neurology or radiology library.
