Osborn’s Brain: Imaging, Pathology and Anatomy 2ed 2017
Comprehensive, visually appealing, and easy to understand, Osborn’s Brain, second edition, by the highly esteemed Dr. Anne G. Osborn, provides a solid framework for understanding the complex subject of brain imaging when studied cover to cover.
Almost completely rewritten and featuring 75% new illustrations, it combines essential anatomy with gross pathology and imaging, clearly demonstrating why and how diseases appear the way they do.
The most immediate emergent diagnostic topics are followed by nonemergent pathologies, integrating the most relevant information from Dr. Osborn’s entire career of accumulated knowledge, experience, and interest in neuropathology, neurosurgery, and clinical neurosciences.
Covers the “must-know” aspects of brain imaging together with spectacular pathology examples, relevant anatomy, and up-to-date techniques in neuroradiology―perfect for radiologists, neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, and neurologists at all levels
Begins with emergent topics such as trauma, nontraumatic hemorrhage, stroke, and vascular lesions, followed by infections, demyelinating and inflammatory diseases, neoplasms, toxic-metabolic-degenerative disorders, and congenital brain malformations
Features more than 4,000 stunning, high-resolution radiologic images and medical illustrations, all of which are annotated to describe the most clinically significant features
Includes Dr. Osborn’s trademark summary boxes scattered throughout for quick review of essential facts, as well as the most recent and up-to-date references available
Helps readers think clearly about diagnoses, types of diagnoses, and the various pathologies that can affect the brain
Includes new WHO classifications of brain tumors,new entities including IgG4-related disease and CLIPPERS, new and emerging infectious diseases,and updated insights into brain trauma and brain degeneration
Expert Consult™ eBook version included with purchase. This enhanced eBook experience allows you to search all of the text, figures, Q&As, and references from the book on a variety of devices.
Highly recommend this updated version of Dr Osborn’s classic text. As with the last edition,it is comprehensive,has an abundance of high quality images and also summary boxes listing salient points of the disease entities. It should be a mandatory read for radiology residents, neuroradiology fellows and diagnostic radiologists interpreting neuro imaging studies. It should be very useful for those in neurosurgery and neurology training,too. Practicing neuroradiologists will also likely learn or relearn a few pearls of knowledge. This is a comprehensive text meant to be read cover to cover and it’s an enjoyable read. — Dr. William G Novak
