Abstract
This book is a detailed guide to image interpretation in patients with spine and spinal cord tumors that will enable clinicians and residents to improve their diagnostic abilities. The book opens by introducing basic concepts in the imaging of spinal tumors, namely the compartmental approach and the histologic basis for the different imaging appearances. These concepts are explained with the aid of representative cases and schematic illustrations. The second part of the book represents a training step in which various spinal tumors are described in detail, focusing on the imaging findings. Representative cases are presented with radiographic, CT, and MR images; in addition, schematic illustrations and pathologic or operative images are included in selected cases. The third part is a practice step describing tips for correct imaging diagnosis. Individual chapters in this part focus on incidence-, age-, location-, and imaging pattern-based approaches to bone, extradural, intradural extramedullary, intramedullary, and pediatric spinal tumors. The presented cases will enhance the reader's understanding of the different tumor patterns and assist in solving diagnostic problems that may be encountered in daily practice.

Abstract
This book presents state of the art knowledge on hemorrhagic stroke in a unique organizational style. All aspects are covered, including risk factors, pathophysiology, diagnostic modalities, treatment, and prevention. Individual procedures and issues are fully discussed with the aid of complementary illustrations that facilitate understanding of practical aspects and enable the reader to retrieve fundamental information quickly. Furthermore, in an accompanying overview diagnostic and therapeutic processes are dynamically described in a time sequence mirroring real practice. The recent striking advances in brain imaging have resulted in a better understanding of the causes and pathophysiology of hemorrhagic stroke, and management has been enhanced by a variety of surgical techniques, intensive monitoring, and administration of novel medical treatment. Against this background, it is timely to summarize current understanding of hemorrhagic stroke and its management from a practical perspective. This textbook will be invaluable for stroke physicians, surgeons, and students seeking to acquire up-to-date knowledge on the subject.
