Radiology of the Skull and Brain: Angiography

Although the 47 chapters of these four books are not arranged alphabetically, they constitute an encyclopedia of angiography of the head (including the face and eye). The contributors from North America, Europe, Australia, and Japan have reported on their areas of special interest in detail. The inevitable repetition is welcome, and makes it unnecessary to move back and forth too much between different volumes.

Book 1 is devoted to technical matters (how to do angiography, what materials to use, what complications occur, what views are best to take, etc). The use of serial angiography in the evaluation of cerebral hemodynamics, a historical introduction to angiography, and embryologic and developmental analysis lead into the second, thickest, volume, which begins with anatomy of the aortic arch and the brachiocephalic arteries. Each of the major vessels is described in detail complemented by diagrams, anatomical dissections, and angiograms.

The orbital veins and cavernous sinus
