Book review (Neuroradiology: The Essentials With MR and CT) – a note from the editor, Val M. Runge, MD

Neuroradiology: The Essentials With MR and CT, 1st Edition
Val M. Runge, Wendy R.K. Smoker, and Antonios Valavanis

Thieme Publishers, 2015

Neuroradiology: The Essentials With MR and CT is an image-rich compendium of the most common entities that are encountered in day-to-day practice in neuroradiology. It has been written to be instructive for the radiology resident, neuroradiology fellow, and the more versed general radiologist. The purpose of the book is to touch upon the most important imaging findings in the more common disease processes, rather than to elaborate on esoteric disease entities….

The authors, Drs Runge, Smoker, and Valvanis, have done a superb job in concentrating the breath of clinical neuroradiology into a manageable book, which may easily be read in 1 or 2 fortnights. Neuroradiology: The Essentials With MR and CT should be a favorite both for boards study as well as to be kept close at hand in the reading room. I enthusiastically recommend this textbook to all residents, neuroradiology fellows, and general diagnostic radiologists.
