PressestimmenFrom the reviews:
"This is a syllabus associated with the 40th International Diagnostic Course in Davos (IDKD) on neuroimaging held in 2008. ... provides an overview of the current state of the art and latest developments in neuroimaging of the brain, head, neck and spine. ... used by the course participants and others. ... The audience includes radiology residents, general radiologists, and clinicians involved with neuroimaging, and neurosurgeons and neurologists. ... It stands alone in our library ... and it is a worthy contribution to the literature." (James Milburn, Doody's Review Service, October, 2009)
