Beschreibung:

The overall incidence of meningiomas, particularly in the developed countries, is rising due to the growing size of the aging population. Additionally, increased utilization of imaging studies such as CT and MRI has contributed to improved detection of incidental meningiomas. This book combines up-to-date information in all matters related to meningiomas with comprehensive coverage on the subject, and is written by multiple contributors - internationally recognized experts in their respective fields from Asia, USA and Europe. This is an essential reference guide for neurosurgeons and neurologists in training and in practice, as well as an important addition to medical libraries throughout the world.

The overall incidence of meningiomas, particularly in the developed countries, is rising due to a growing size of the aging population. Additionally, an increased utilization of imaging studies such as computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) has contributed to enhanced detection of incidental meningiomas. The book contains the most up-to-date information in all matters related to meningiomas with the most thorough coverage on the subject, and is written by multiple contributors - internationally recognized experts in their respective fields from Asia, USA and Europe.
This is an essential reference guide to neurosurgeons and neurologists (in training and in practice), as well as medical libraries, throughout the world.
