Imaging of orbital and visual pathway pathology

This can be one of many first books to accommodate imaging of pathology of the full visible method. it really is divided into components, basic and particular. within the basic half, an important fundamentals of contemporary imaging tools are mentioned, yet with much less emphasis at the actual historical past than in in simple terms neuro-/radiological textbooks.

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

This is often the 1st textbook on scientific fMRI. it really is dedicated to preoperative fMRI in sufferers with mind tumors and epilepsies, that are the main well-established medical functions. state of the art fMRI strategies are provided, with certain attention of the physiological and methodological heritage, imaging and knowledge processing, general and pathological findings, diagnostic percentages and obstacles, and different comparable thoughts.

Brain Mapping: From Neural Basis of Cognition to Surgical Applications

The objective of this publication is to make a hyperlink among basic examine within the box of cognitive neurosciences, which now advantages from a greater wisdom of the neural foundations of cerebral processing, and its scientific program, specifically in neurosurgery – itself capable of supply new insights into mind association.

Bone over the optic foramen is preserved during this portion of the procedure. — Divide the dura over the superior orbital fissure and retract to the clinoid process — Identify the optic nerve as it exits the optic foramen and drill along the canal, thinning the bone along the medial and anterior surface of the clinoid process — Avoid entering the sphenoid sinus medial or lateral to the canal as it will require exenteration and packing with Betadine-soaked Gelfoam and fat — Thin the clinoid process with a small 2-mm diamond burr and dissect from the dura — Drill the optic strut located medially between the optic canal and the carotid artery to fully mobilize the clinoid process — Achieve hemostasis with bone wax to the bony edges and Surgicel within the cavernous sinus.

Burr holes spanning across the superior sagittal sinus are created at the anterior and posterior edges of the bone flap (B). For an anterior interhemispheric approach, two thirds of the craniotomy is anterior and one third of the craniotomy is posterior to the coronal suture (C). 16 I Cranial: Approaches — Bilateral approach • If the craniotomy is bilateral and extends across the superior sagittal sinus, the following techniques may be used at the anterior and posterior margins of the bone flap: ° A burr hole is drilled directly crossing over the sinus with a round cutting burr to visualize dura on each side and over the sinus (Fig.
