This book is organized into 11 sections with forty-four chapters.
Most chapters have three or fewer authors. The book is extensively illustrated with high quality figures—over —including anatomic drawings, operative photographs, and contemporary radiologic images with MR and CT. The figure reproduction for Radiology is good and the figure legends are clear and concise.
However, this is also a great reference book for any Neuroradiology section—both academic and private practice. There is a comprehensive review of meningiomas by location, with a focus on anatomy and surgical mejingiomas, which includes important information on recurrence and survival. There are six radiology chapters. In addition, almost every other chapter includes some cross-sectional imaging to illustrate the lesion location under discussion.
The overall ao of the radiology images is excellent. The text also benefits from extensive intra-operative photography and outstanding artwork illustrating the relevant anatomy for each location and suggested method of resection. Overall, the references for every chapter are up-to-date and include recent articles from the modern imaging era, up to Ragel and Randy L.
Jensen discusses genetics and mutations in meningioma. Section IV of the book covers Diagnostic Radiology with one chapter on cross-sectional imaging and one on angiography: Chapter 13, by William Menngiomas. Both are well written and up to date, although there is little discussion of MRS or diffusion imaging in diagnosis and grading of meningioma.
