Handbook of Neuroimaging for the Ophthalmologist

by M Tariq Bhatti, Ilona Schmalfuss

This book is intended for the practising ophthalmologist who regularly orders radiological studies, in particular CT and MRI. It focuses on the value of the clinical decision-making process when examining a patient, rather than providing a review of all the diagnostic ophthalmic or neurological conditions and their associated neuroimaging findings. A unique aspect of this handbook is the perspectives it contains from both a neuro-ophthalmologist’s and a neuroradiologist’s point of view. The book is structured around nine clinical chapters organized by clinical manifestations. Introducing these, chapter 1 provides a comprehensive outline of the basic physics of CT, MRI and vascular ultrasound, and discusses the strengths, weaknesses and pitfalls of the different technologies. Chapter 11 provides insights into CT and MRI protocols that are commonly used in the workup of ophthalmological patients. Each clinical chapter reviews the neuroanatomy and relevant pathways, and provides the foundations for understanding the clinical findings and correctly interpreting the radiology. Key to this is the inclusion of a case vignette in each chapter.
