The subject matter of this text was originally presented at various refresher courses in neuroradiology. The volume is divided into three major sections: plain skull, intracranial pneumography, and cerebral angiography. The format of each section is to discuss technical details, projections and positioning, and normal anatomy before describing the more common cranial and intracranial abnormalities seen in medical practice. A principal virtue of the text is simplicity.
In my opinion, the section on pneumography was the most informative. Descriptions of abnormalities are brief, but there are many fine illustrations depicting techniques and procedures as well as numerous, well-labeled, excellent reproductions of roentgenograms.
The text can best be described as a practical approach, encompassing the more common neuroradiologic problems a physician encounters in his daily practice. Discussions of unusual and rare conditions seen in neuroradiology are absent.
The volume should appeal to the resident in radiology, neurology, or neuroradiology as
