Focusing on anatomy and procedural strategy for perfusion CT imaging in clinical neurology and cerebrovascular disease, this new text-atlas combines pictures and schematic diagrams to show how this new modality can be used to assess anatomy and guide therapeutic interventions. Beginning with an introductory section discussing the state of the art and background support (including software) in the use of the technique, the work then provides a sequence of chapters that review applications in managing stroke, thrombosis and tumors, before concluding with a section that evaluates the utility of perfusion CT in comparison with other modalites such as MRI. A comprehensive introduction to further clinical applications of a newly established technology, this highly illustrated text-atlas demonstrates utility of the technique and covers all relevant theory necessary for its implementation.
