This volume is an atlas of cerebral angiography. The first portion of it is devoted to historical background and to the technique employed by the authors. There is a pertinent discussion of contrast materials and apparatus, as well as some of the hazards implicit in the use of these. A detailed discussion of the vascular anatomy and physiology of the brain and its accompanying structures completes the introductory portion of this book. The format of the remainder of the book is one often employed in a medical atlas, with subject matter classified in several categories, such as space-occupying lesions, internal hydrocephalus, and vascular lesions. Illustrative cases, including angiograms and explanatory diagrams, together with a certain amount of clinical information, are not included in the body of the text but instead comprise a separate appendix. The individual cases of the appendix are footnoted into the text at appropriate places.
