New Textbook – Osborn’s Brain

Skye Bickett Library News, New Resources

The PCOM Library is pleased to provide access to the newest edition of Obsorn’s Brain by Dr. Anne G. Osborn.

Thanks to all who provided feedback.

This title provides a solid framework for understanding the complex subject of brain imaging when studied cover to cover. It combines essential anatomy with gross pathology and imaging, clearly demonstrating why and how diseases appear the way they do.

The textbook begins with emergent topics such as trauma, non-traumatic hemorrhage, stroke, and vascular lesions, then covers infections, demyelinating and inflammatory diseases, neoplasms, toxic-metabolic-degenerative disorders, and congenital brain malformations.

It contains over 4,000 stunning, high-resolution radiologic images and medical illustrations, all of which are annotated to describe the most clinically significant features. Summary boxes are also provided throughout the text for quick review of essential facts, as well as the most recent and up-to-date references available.

Osborn’s Brain helps readers think clearly about diagnoses, types of diagnoses, and the various pathologies that can affect the brain.
