Professor of Diagnostic Radiology and Chief of Neuroradiology at Yale University School of Medicine Gordon Sze, MD describes the various types of adenomas found in the pituitary gland, and discusses the optimum imaging criteria for their study. In addition he shows how lesions that affect the neurohypophysis generally manifest clinically by alteration of secretion of vasopressin, resulting in the syndrome of inappropriate anti-diuretic hormone (SIADH), and how MRI can be used to differentiate those lesions that are associated with diabetes insipidus and those in which the location of the posterior gland is a marker for other, more generalized conditions. A comprehensive and clearly written text on pituitary gland diseases, this book belongs in every neurologist’s library.
The RadGuidance® series of ebooks offers practicing clinicians - both primary care doctors and specialists - a quick and easy reference to over 100 distinct conditions, and how state-of-the-art imaging should be applied within the context of diagnosis, preoperative staging and therapy monitoring.
Authored by board certified radiologists who also teach at the finest medical schools in the U.S. and abroad, each book is presented in a clear and concise manner meant to be read in less than an hour, yet contains all the necessary information upon which to base a decision on when to order advanced imaging studies for the particular disease process under review.
The RadGuidance series offers referring physicians and radiology students the opportunity to confirm suspicions and validate decisions by accessing precisely targeted information quickly and economically as cases present in daily practice.
