The aim of this book is to detail the pathogenesis and diagnosis of cerebroarterial disease by angiography and computed tomography (CT). After introductory chapters on pathology and technique, the majority of the book consists of hundreds of angiograms and CT scans that are used to illustrate the relatively short, interspersed text. The illustrations are of a high quality and clearly demonstrate a wide variety of the arterial lesions seen in occlusive arterial disease, including some of the rarer forms of cerebroarterial disease, and the intricacies of collateral flow seen in occlusive arterial disease. The references are extensive and up to date. Whereas the strong point of the book is the illustrations, the text could be improved on. The layout is difficult to follow in places and some of the subdivisions are arbitrary. In many places the prose sounds like a literal translation from another language.
The book is based on
