A Doody's Core Title 2012 Brain Injury Medicine: Principles and Practice is a comprehensive guide to all aspects of the management issues involved in caring for the person with brain injury - from early diagnosis and evaluation through the post-acute period and rehabilitation. It is the definitive core text needed by all practitioners in this area, including physiatrists, neurologists, psychologists, nurses, and other health care professionals. Written by over 100 acknowledged leaders in the field, and containing hundreds of tables, graphs, and photographic images, the text deals with issues of neuroimaging and neurodiagnostic testing, prognosis and outcome, acute care, rehabilitative care, treatment of specific populations, neurologic problems following injury, neuromusculoskeletal problems, and general management issues. Key features include: Emphasis on a disease state management approach to patient assessment and treatment Promotion of a holistic, biopsychosocial model of patient assessment and care Review of current expert consensus on practice guidelines Exploration of epidemiologic and basic pathophysiologic aspects of brain injury Examination of clinical issues throughout the continuum of rehabilitative care Cutting edge, practical information based on the authors' extensive clinical experience that will positively impact patients and families following brain injury

The present volume is the results of 6 years' work by our team, during which time 2300 CT scans of the pituitary region were carried out. This was made possible by the close collaboration between physicians and technicians in our neuroradiological department, as well as by numerous corresponding physi cians. We wish to express our gratitude for their confidence and our sincere thanks to our colleagues at Besan90n, Dijon, Grenoble, Lyon, Montpellier, and Strasbourg. Furthermore, we especially wish to thank the patients who willingly accepted the difficult requirements of these studies. We are grateful to the technicians at the Neuroradiology Department of the Centre Hospitalier et U niversitaire de Besan90n, who have perfected the methodology so as to meet the ever increasing imperatives for precise anatomical mapping of the pituitary gland and the surrounding region; without their efforts, this book would never have been possible. Finally, we wish to express our thanks to the medical photographer of our group, as well as the secretarial staff for their contribution to the successful production of this work. We thank Labora toires Guerbet and General Electric for their excellent assistance, and Springer Verlag for their care and competence in the production of this book. In writing Computed Tomography of the Pituitary Gland, we have sought to develop morphological study of the pituitary gland to a degree of reliability comparable to that of laboratory findings in endocrine disorders.
