This book presents a selection of unusual neuroradiology cases, each documented with a short medical history, CT and MRI images, and one page with clinical features and radiological findings. A total of 25 rare and peculiar cases were selected from the authors’ clinical experience.
Over time, the authors witnessed several of these cases – for which there is little or no information in the international literature – being misinterpreted, especially by residents, general radiologists who occasionally have to deal with neuroradiology cases, or young neuroradiologists.
Written by experienced practitioners, this atlas, with its thoroughly documented collection of rare neuroradiological cases, represents a valuable clinical tool for young radiologists and will encourage them to “think outside the box” and successfully find the correct diagnosis.
• Highlights unusual neuroradiology cases
• Explains 25 rare and peculiar cases from everyday practice
• Offers a practical guide to possible neuroradiological features
• Martina Špero graduated from the University of Zagreb Medical School in 1997 and received her PhD in 2011 from the same university. She completed a four-year radiology residency program in 2004 and became a board certified neuroradiologist in 2010, while in 2011 she received her European Diploma in Neuroradiology. She currently works as a neuroradiologist at the Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology of the University Hospital Dubrava in Zagreb, and as a consultant neuroradiologist for the Department of Radiology at Dubrovnik General Hospital.
Her published works include several peer-reviewed articles and scientific papers. She has delivered several invited lectures at domestic and international meetings, courses and congresses and is a member of several scientific societies, including the Croatian Society of Radiology, the European Society of Radiology and the European Society of Neuroradiology.
