Neurointerventional radiology is evolving into a rarified and complex field, with more people today training to become neurointerventionalists than ever before. With these developments comes a need for a unified handbook of techniques and essential literature. In Handbook of Cerebrovascular Disease and Neurointerventional Technique, Mark Harrigan and John Deveikis present the first practical guide to endovascular methods and provide a viable reference work for neurovascular anatomy and cerebrovascular disease from a neurointerventionalist’s perspective. This new gold-standard reference covers the fundamental techniques and core philosophies of Neurointerventional radiology, while creating a manual that offers structure and standardization to the field. Authoritative and concise, Handbook of Cerebrovascular Disease and Neurointerventional Technique is the must-have work for today’s neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, and interventional radiologists.

In this age when we are witnessing a veritable explosion in new modalities in diagnos tic imaging we continue to have a great need for detailed studies of the vascularity of the brain in patients who have all types of cerebral vascular disease. Much of the understanding of cerebral vascular occlusive lesions which we developed in the last two decades was based on our ability to demonstrate the vessels that were affected. Much experimental work in animals had been done where major cerebral vessels were obstructed and the effects of these obstructions on the brain observed pathologically. However, it was not until cerebral angiography could be performed with the detail that became possible in the decades of the '60 's and subsequently that we could begin to understand the relationship of the obstructed vessels observed angiographically to the clinical findings. In addition, much physiologic information was obtained. For instance, the concept ofluxury perfusion which is used to describe non-nutritional flow through the tissues was observed first angiographically although the term was not used until LASSEN described it as a pathophysiological phenomenon observed during cerebral blood flow studies with radioactive isotopes. The concept of embolic occlusions of the cerebral vessels as against thrombosis was clarified and the relative frequency of thrombosis versus embolism was better understood. The concept of collateral circulation of the brain through so-called meningeal end-to end arterial anastomoses was vastly better understood when serial angiography in obstructive cerebral vascular disease was carried out with increasing frequency.
Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance provides you with up-to-date clinical applications of cardiovascular MRI for the broad spectrum of cardiovascular diseases, including ischemic, myopathic, valvular, and congenital heart diseases, as well as great vessel and peripheral vascular disease. Editors Warren J. Manning and Dudley J. Pennell and their team of international contributors cover everything from basic MR physics to sequence design, flow quantification and spectroscopy to structural anatomy and pathology. Learn the appropriate role for CMR in a variety of clinical settings with reference to other modalities, practical limitations, and costs. With the latest information on contrast agents, MR angiography, MR spectroscopy, imaging protocols, and more, this book is essential for both the beginner and expert CMR practitioner.Covers both the technical and clinical aspects of CMR to serve as a comprehensive reference.

Demonstrates the full spectrum of the application of cardiac MR from ischemic heart disease to valvular, myopathic, pericardial, aortic, and congenital heart disease.

Includes coverage of normal anatomy, orientation, and function to provide you with baseline values.

Discusses advanced techniques, such as interventional MR, to include essential information relevant to the specialist.

Features appendices with acronyms and CMR terminology used by equipment vendors that serve as an introduction to the field.

Uses consistent terminology and abbreviations throughout the text for clarity and easy reference. Covers both the technical and clinical aspects of CMR to serve as a comprehensive reference.
