Al-Mefty O. Controversies in Neurosurgery II. Thieme; 2014; 456 pgs.; $159.99
Given the proliferation of publications dealing with clinical issues involving care of patients with neurological disorders, it is natural that we now have a 2014 book entitled Controversies in Neurosurgery II, edited by Dr. Al-Mefty, a neurosurgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. He has included over 100 authors, many of whom are well known neurosurgeons, as contributors to the book. This is a follow-up to a similarly titled book published 12 years ago.
The fact that publications like this one continue to be produced highlights … Continue reading >>

Robson C, Kock BL, Harnsberger HR. Specialty Imaging: Temporal Bone. Amirsys; 2013; 580 pgs.; 1500 illustrations; $299
For those who are not involved with a high volume of temporal bone imaging (CT or MR), it is difficult to become proficient and secure in the occasional evaluation of temporal bone pathology, particularly when intrinsic malformations or small lesions are present. The newly published book by Amirsys Specialty Imaging: Temporal Bone, edited by Drs. Robson, Koch, and Harnsberger, expands on the temporal bone section contained in Diagnostic Imaging: Head and Neck (2011), also from Amirsys. Once again the authors of this … Continue reading >>
Radiologists find satisfaction in detecting abnormalities and making diagnoses. However, our judgement is required when we identify incidental findings, especially if the cost of workup is high and the benefit of workup may be low. The incidental thyroid nodule is a scenario in which we need to carefully consider the consequences of our report and recommendations.

The fellows and residents who have read out with me will tell you that the one (?!) thing never to put in a report is “clinical correlation required”; I want them to spell out specifically what it is that needs to be correlated with the imaging. In the words of Pat Hudgins, MD, I want to be a “value-added neuroradiologist.” We should be helping our referring clinicians determine the potential significance of imaging findings, and we should also try to bridge the clinical-radiological gap in understanding how diseases manifest. I learn so much more about neuroradiology when my clinicians tell … Continue reading >>

For those neuroradiologists who are deeply involved with head and neck imaging—temporal bone imaging in particular—this book will be of interest. It takes the reader through seven basic areas: Basic Sciences, Approaches to Patients with Ontological/Neurotological Diseases, Disorders of the Middle Ear, Disorders of the Inner Ear, Disorders of the Facial Nerve, Neurotologic and Lateral Skull Base Surgery, Electronic Listening Devices. There is one chapter on temporal bone imaging, but this does not contain information or imaging that … Continue reading >>
