This book provides clear guidance as to which neuroradiological findings in ill or injured patients should be immediately communicated by radiologists and trainees to the emergency room and referring physicians in order to facilitate key decisions and eliminate preventable errors. It offers a practical and illustrative approach that identifies what to look for and how to report it and describes the required follow-up and the most common differential diagnoses of the main critical findings in neuroradiology. The book is distinctive in being written from a “critical findings perspective”, which makes its content more practical and memorable than that of a standard Emergency Neuroradiology textbook. It also illustrates the value of developing algorithmic approaches to report and communicate critical findings based on lists. While the book will appeal to a broad and variable audience, it is especially addressed to radiology training programs and will be a “must read” for residents and fellows in training.
Written from a clinical radiology perspective, the content of this book draws on the personal experience of the authors, all of whom are leading experts in neuroradiology.

This publication provides an up to date educational resource which will enable clinicians practising or training in intensive care, emergency medicine or anaesthesia to interpret patients' imaging investigations. The book is based on a series of problems about critically ill patients. The problems, which are of varying degree of difficulty, begin with a brief clinical history and an image or series of images; questions are asked about the images and answers are provided on the facing page. The book will also be useful for doctors from a broad range of specialities whose patients come to the ICU, including surgeons and physicians, as well as radiology trainees.
The discussion sections of each case cover the imaging and clinical manifestations for all disease processes, making this text a high-yield review for board exam preparation and a quick reference for daily clinical practice.
