MRI Atlas of the Brain
By William G. Bradley, MD, PhD,
and Graeme Bydder, MB, ChB
New York,Raven PresslMartin Dunits, Ltd, 1990
363 pp, illustrated, $125.00
This book is devoted solely to the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) correlations of pathophysiology. It is not really an
atlas but is comprised of ample text and many figures. There
are 10 chapters that highlight most of the important areas in
neuroradiology, including tumors, infarction, demyelinating
diseases, hemorrhage, hydrocephalus, and the developing
brain, as well as an introduction to the physics of MRI, newer
imaging techniques, flow phenomena, and the uses of
gadolinium. The figures and their legends are placed at the
end of each chapter and shuffling between the text and the
illustrations tends to be a nuisance. Most of the figures are of
good quality, but some images are of inferior resolution. The
figures illustrate the subjects in the text nicely with arrows
used appropriately to guide the reader.
This book does not function as a comprehensive text.
Rather, it presents a limited number of subjects in detail.
Nevertheless, it can serve as a readable introduction into
MRI of the brain. It will be particularly useful to those who
wish to focus on learning the principles of MRI. It can be
read rapidly by practicing radiologists, neurologists, and

Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Computed
Tomography of the Head and Spine
By C . Bawie Grossman,M D
Baltimore, MD, Williams -5Wilkins, 1990
465 pp, illustrated, $125.00
The author has provided a text that covers most of the important areas in neuroradiology, focusing on both computed
tomographic (CT)and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging.
The book is divided into four sections. “Basic Technical
Considerations” contains a discussion of the principles of CT
and MRI. “The Brain” is devoted to anatomy and diseases of
the brain. Chapters in this section pertain to cerebrovascular
disorders, trauma, infectious and inflammatory diseases,
tumors, and other disorders. “The Skull Base, Skull, and
Face” includes sections on the orbit, temporal bone, and
sellar region. ‘The Spine” integrates CT and MR imaging in
normal and pathological states.
The text is easy to read and provides basic information
concerning the selection and interpretation of particular imaging methods. Illustrations are of high quality and well
labeled, and the chapters are adequately referenced. Subjects
are covered at various levels but overall there is an attempt
to be inclusive and brief. This is a fine book not only for
those in training but for anyone wishing to acquire a fundamental understanding of neuroimaging.

Disorders of Movement: Clinical,
Pharmacological and Physiological Aspects
Edited hy N . P. Quinn, MD, and P. G. Jenraer, M D
Orhndo, FL, Academic Press, I989
567 pp, illustrated, $60.00
This book represents a festschift tribute to Professor C.
David Marsden in celebration of his move from Kings College Hospital to head the Department of Neurology at the
National Hospital, Queen Square. Professor Marsden has
been a renowned clinician and prolific researcher in the field
of neurological movement disorders. His work has spanned a
wide spectrum of clinical, pharmacological, and physiological
aspects of these conditions. The impressive group of contributors largely represents individuals who have trained or
closely collaborated with Marsden, indicative of his farreaching impact on the field.
The major sections of the book deal with Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, and other movement disorders; there is a total
of 39 chapters. Each chapter generally provides a good background review as well as new research findings. This is not
a textbook of movement disorders, however, because the
coverage of topics is uneven. For example, there are chapters
on the classification of tremor and orthostatic tremor, but
none on tremor therapy. There are two chapters on PHNO,
a drug that has been withdrawn from further testing. The
topics represent the area of expertise for chosen contributors. Some chapters, such as “Tics” by Lees and “Is
There a Parkinson’s Disease?” by Duvoisin, present highly
opinionated information but are of great interest in evoking
scientific thought and discussion.
There is much of value here for clinicians, neurologists-intraining, and basic neuroscientists who are interested in disorders of movement. I highly recommend this book. It is a
deserving and appropriate tribute to Professor Marsden,
clearly reflecting his many exciting and remarkable achievements.
