Description

This two-volume set covers both the methods and application of a broad range of neuroimaging techniques for clinical and research applications. It should appeal to neuroscientists, cognitive neuroscientists, neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, physicists, and technologists. Part A (also sold individually) is a review of neuroimaging research methods including structural MRI, functional MRI (fMRI), perfusion MRI, diffusion tensor imaging and near infra-red optical imaging in research and clinical settings. Part B covers the application of neuroimaging in both research and clinical settings for the study of anxiety disorders, dementia, depression, schizophrenia, functional somatic syndromes, stroke, and multiple sclerosis using a range of neuroimaging modalities including CT, PET, SPECT, DTI, structural MRI and fMRI. The two parts of Neuroimaging complement each other providing in-depth information on a broad range of routine and cutting-edge techniques that is not available in any other text. This book is superbly written and beautifully illustrated by contributors working at the top of their chosen specialty.
