Neuroimaging is nothing but how "neuropathology and neuroanatomy" are approached clinically by neurologists and neurosurgeons through radiological films. Neuroimaging from the neuropathological and neuroanatomical perspectives is how gross pathology and anatomy are demonstrated radiologically. Without having a good Knowledge of neuropathology and neuroanatomy it is not possible at all to understand neuroimaging.
Neuroimaging and neuropathology share common perspectives in medicine. In no field is this more evident than in the diagnosis and study of nervous system pathology: radiology and pathology are anatomically oriented specialties that depend primarily on structural changes to diagnose disease. Both specialties are broadening their perspectives of morphology to demonstrate metabolism, as with functional imaging in radiology and with immunocytochemical markers in anatomical pathology. Pathologists thus regard their radiologic counterparts as colleagues with similar morphologic approaches to diagnosis, despite the different tools used. In no discipline is this companionship more strongly felt than in the respective subspecialties that focus on disorders of the nervous system.
Neuropathologists understand, acknowledge, and admire the numerous contributions by neuroimaging in defining many neurological disorders. Neuroimaging enable us to diagnose gross pathology during life. Neuropathologists usually must wait until autopsy to demonstrate tissue changes, but surgical specimens are becoming increasingly more frequent, for example, with the advent of epilepsy surgery.
Neuroradiologists and neuropathologists have a mutual need for collaboration. Radiologists need tissue confirmation to fully understand the significance of images seen, and pathologists’ findings need to be relevant to diagnoses that often rest initially with the neurologist/neuroradiologist, and provide insight into pathogenesis through unique tissue examinations.
In my opinion the best neuroradiologist is the neurologist or the neurosurgeons who must be capable of independently interpreting a neuroimaging study. Understanding neuropathology and neuroanatomy, and how they are demonstrated radiologically, are essential for interpreting a neuroimaging study. This EBook is directed primarily to neurologists and neurosurgeons. This publication addresses the question of how neuropathology and neuroanatomy are related to neuroimaging and why they are essential for our basic understanding of a neuroimaging study.
The shareware version of textbook of radiological pathology is a 200 MB windows based application that will function for a limited period of time and then it will expire and will no longer be usable (you try before you buy). When it expires you have two options, either to register you copy by buying a password (a system locked password) from the author that will unlock the copy in a single computer once again and for good (single user, single computer license) or to remove the application from your computer. The policy here is that after trying the application, if you have found it useful and decided to continue using it, then you must buy it by paying a small amount of money to the author. The price of a single password for a single computer is 30 US dollars to be paid in advance by a check payable to Dr. M. Yasser Metwally. When your payment is received, a system locked password will be sent to you by email. (click here to email the author and request for a password). Feel free to copy and distribute the shareware version.
