Imaging of orbital and visual pathway pathology

This can be one of many first books to accommodate imaging of pathology of the whole visible process. it really is divided into elements, common and exact. within the common half, crucial fundamentals of contemporary imaging equipment are mentioned, yet with much less emphasis at the actual heritage than in only neuro-/radiological textbooks.

Clinical Functional MRI: Presurgical Functional Neuroimaging (Medical Radiology Diagnostic Imaging)

This is often the 1st textbook on scientific fMRI. it's dedicated to preoperative fMRI in sufferers with mind tumors and epilepsies, that are the main well-established scientific functions. state of the art fMRI strategies are awarded, with special attention of the physiological and methodological history, imaging and knowledge processing, basic and pathological findings, diagnostic probabilities and barriers, and different comparable suggestions.

Brain Mapping: From Neural Basis of Cognition to Surgical Applications

The target of this e-book is to make a hyperlink among primary study within the box of cognitive neurosciences, which now advantages from a greater wisdom of the neural foundations of cerebral processing, and its medical software, specially in neurosurgery – itself capable of offer new insights into mind association.

15 the table positions corresponding to the image slices. Table position is accurately measured and recorded in current CT scanners. In our experience at several major university hospitals, quality assurance testing of CT scanners is very good and geometrical distortion in routinely acquired clinical CT image slices is very low. b A CT image volume is a stack of two-dimensional (2-D) image slices. If a CT image is acquired with the gantry tilted, and the image slices are simply stacked without accounting for the nonzero tilt angle, then the image volume will have a type of geometrical distortion called shear.

13 The image markers are constructed from hollow plastic cylinders that are filled with an aqueous solution of iothalamate meglumine and gadopentetate dimeglumine and sealed (B, left; C). The physical space markers (localization caps) are manufactured with a hemispherical divot whose position corresponds to the centroid of the image markers (B, right; D). The threaded ends of plastic marker bases or posts (B, center) are screwed into the outer table of the skull of the patient. (C). The image markers are attached to the bases during image acquisition.

Because CT image volumes are stacks of sequentially acquired slices, any patient movement between slices distorts the image. In addition to the normal difficulties of keeping a person still, head movement can be caused by inertial jerking during each table advance in conventional CT image acquisition. Helical CT image acquisition involves continuous patient translation during x-ray source rotation and produces a complete image volume in a relatively short period of time. Some current CT scanners feature multiple detector arrays; multislice helical CT image acquisition is extremely fast.
