"This book is primarily a case book of unknowns, many of which are listed together in an attempt to make the reader formulate a differential diagnosis. It does not mirror the typical text-based differential diagnoses text books, but rather provides a collection of imaging cases with similar features, and then provides a differential diagnosis for those findings...Overall, the selection of cases is good and by addressing a wide spectrum of neuroradiology including paediatrics, spinal imaging and head and neck imaging, it does cover most of the commonest conditions that would be seen...It is well written book, which is nicely laid out and the image quality is high in all sections."

"This impressive work offers a unique approach to the presentation of unknown cases. Readers are presented with a large of number of high-quality, unknown cases and challenged to differentiate disease entities with similar imaging findings. The unknown cases are followed by concise expert insight into differentiating disease entities, using imaging findings and corollary data. The unique approach of this book is sure to have wide appeal." Scott Forseen, M.D., M.S. (Medical College of Georgia) Doody Review!
