New York/Stuttgart – “Differential Diagnosis in Computed Tomography, 2nd edition,” recently published by Thieme, is an invaluable reference aid in the evaluation of CT images to help physicians confidently gain a general diagnostic impression and a reasonable differential diagnosis. In contrast to disease-oriented radiology texts, this book is organized by CT findings, enabling the reader to quickly match the appropriate differential diagnosis to CT results.

[From]An exhaustive chapter on the ophthalmologic aspects of these lesions...[to] The various chapters on surgical management [to] Various modern radiotherapeutic adjuncts...[the book has a] comprehensive focus on the problems of this area and our current solutions..." Edward R. Laws, MD, FACS, Department of Neurosurgery Brigham & Women's Hospital, Boston, MA.
Complete with full-color illustrations, high-quality radiographs, and instructive tables, Sellar and Parasellar Tumors is the authoritative reference for neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, endocrinologists, neuro-ophthalmologists, radiation oncologists, and any other clinician who diagnoses, treats, and manages patients with these complex disorders.
