SUMMARY

This is one of the first books to deal with imaging of pathology of the entire visual system. It is divided into two parts, general and special. In the general part, the most important basics of modern imaging methods are discussed in detail, but with less emphasis on the physical background than in purely neuro-/radiological books. A chapter is devoted to the meticulous presentation of imaging anatomy of the orbit and intracranial visual pathway. Further chapters are devoted to neuroophthalmology and functional imaging of the visual pathway with presentation of the latest knowledge on the indication, technique and results of functional MR imaging. Another chapter gives an overview of visual system impairment in the pediatric age group.The special part provides detailed descriptions of the symptoms and clinical and imaging findings in individual patients with orbital and intracranial pathologies. When appropriate, images obtained with different modalities are presented in order to demonstrate differential diagnosis in cases with similar clinical symptoms. This book is specifically designed to be of value not only to neuroradiologists but also to ophthalmologists, neurosurgeons, oto-/rhino-laryngologists, and neurologists who require more detailed information on these special diseases
