Radiology of the Eye and Orbit, the fourth volume in the series Modern Neuroradiology, is divided into nine chapters covering magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and ultrasonography of the eye and orbit. This book has 989 illustrations, and the chapters dealing with magnetic resonance imaging encompass slightly more than half of the book. The 25-page index is a useful aid in this multiauthored text. Contributors are established authors with considerable clinical experience in ocular and orbital imaging. This volume represents one in a series; each volume may be purchased individually.

Chapter 1 provides a brief review of the technical aspects of magnetic resonance imaging, including the fat-suppression techniques useful in orbital imaging. Chapter 2 describes normal magnetic resonance ocular anatomy. Chapter 3 discusses magnetic resonance ocular pathology and covers a broad variety of topics from hyaloid, retinal, and choroidal detachment to morning glory anomaly and Nome's disease. The images are excellent and clearly labeled, with very good clinical correlation.
