Visually appealing, Comprehensive, and easy to understand, Osborn’s Brain, 2nd edition, by the highly esteemed Dr. Anne G. Osborn, provides a solid framework for understanding the complex subject of brain imaging when studied cover to cover. Almost completely rewritten and featuring 75% new illustrations, it combines essential anatomy with imaging and gross pathology, clearly demonstrating why and how diseases appear the way they do. The most immediate emergent diagnostic topics are followed by nonemergent pathologies, integrating the most relevant information from Dr. Osborn’s entire career of accumulated experience, knowledge, and interest in neuropathology, clinical neurosciences and neurosurgery.
