The Atlas is intended as an introduction to basic neuroanatomy, with emphasis on the pathoanatomy of several leading central nervous system diseases. While
attempting to present a range of brain abnormalities, we have not attempted to
survey the entire extent of brain disease; the reader should seek this type of information in a comprehensive textbook of neuroimaging. We hope in future additions to include the parkinsonian syndromes, epilepsy, and samples of neuropsychiatric syndromes, among other conditions.
- We have chosen examples of certain brain disease, and present them with various combinations of image type and imaging frequency; however, we make no claim that the image type, frequency of its application, or any particular image interpretation is neccessary or appropriate in any particular case or for any particular disease.
- Nothing on this site should be considered medical advice. If you need medical advice, see your doctor.
- The information and reference materials contained herein is intended solely for the information of the reader. Information on this web site may include technical inaccuracies or typographical errors. The information may change from time to time without notice.
