The history and conceptual and technical basis for the various methods that have been used to produce images of the brain and its associated structures, written by a pioneer investigator in diagnostic imaging methods. Emphasis is on computerized tomography, but the scope runs from skull radiography (including pneumoencephalography) through angiography, ultrasound, and isotope scanning, and up to the methods holding great promise for use in the near future (positron scanning and nuclear magnetic resonance scanning). Authoritative; clearly written and generously illustrated. Highly recommended for libraries with collections in the history of medicine, science, and technology, in neurology, and in radiology.
