Chief of Neuroradiology at Yale University Medical School, Gordon Sze, M.D., presents this comprehensive overview of Neurofibromatosis diagnosis and differentiation to assist the referring physician with indications for advanced imaging studies. He describes the criteria that go into the clinical diagnosis of the different forms of neurofibromatosis, and the most common central nervous system manifestations of NF-1 and NF-2. He includes reviews of the MRI appearance of the different types of manifestations of neurofibromatosis, and furthers the understanding of the utility of MRI in suggesting the diagnosis of neurofibromatosis when other clinical stigmata are not as obvious. An invaluable tool for the practicing clinician’s library.
