Liebeskind (neurology, stroke imaging, UCLA Stroke Center) presents work on the latest understanding of prevention, onset, diagnostic modalities, and treatment of cerebral ischemia (stroke). The book is illustrated with b&w images and illustrations, plus inside cover pages with color images. Early chapters cover general topics such as diagnostic challenges, pre-hospital diagnosis and early treatment in acute ischemia, and symptomatic versus asymptomatic cerebrovascular disease. One chapter is devoted to the concept of 'time is brain' and the benefits of tailoring acute stroke therapy with the use of imaging. Later chapters are devoted to specific imaging modalities: multimodal computed tomography in acute ischemic stroke, multimodal magnetic resonance imaging, transcranial Doppler ultrasonography, and cerebral angiography. Clinical Publishing is an imprint of Atlas Medical Publishing Ltd. The book is distributed in the US by BookMasters. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
