Editorial Reviews


'notable for the excellent imaging, reflecting the widespread reputation of the author in this area'

'clearly written with ample illustrations'

'ample reference list with citations from the primary literature'

-Doodys Publishers' Club, Friday, June 20, 2014

'Dr Gean gives an excellent overview of the current use and potential future applications of advanced imaging techniques to manage these injuries'

'a fabulous job at capturing all major points of view and displays an impressive knowledge of the military health care system.'
'this is an excellent book that highlights the unique brain injuries seen during recent combat, explores the pathophysiology of these injuries, provides a detailed description of the imaging for these patients, and contrasts the combat TBI from those routinely encountered in civilian practice.'

-Neurosurgery, March 2015, James M. Ecklund, MD, Department of Neurosciences, Inova Fairfax Hospital, Falls Church, Virginia

About the Author

Alisa D. Gean, MD is a Professor of Radiology, Neurology, and Neurosurgery at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Dr. Gean obtained both her BS and MD degrees at Stanford University. Following medical school, she did an Internship in Internal Medicine at San Francisco Children's Hospital, now called California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC). She then moved to Boston where she completed a 4-year Residency program in Diagnostic Radiology and a 2-year Fellowship in Neuroradiology, both at Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School.
Dr. Gean joined the faculty at UCSF in 1989 as the Chief of Neuroradiology at San Francisco General Hospital. Her primary professional interest is in the field of central nervous system trauma. She also has devoted special attention to the areas of stroke and HIV disease. The sheer volume of patients, the extremes of illness, and the unique circumstances of the vulnerable patient population presenting to San Francisco General Hospital have provided her with a wealth of experience and expertise in central nervous system injury and disease. Dr. Gean lectures nationally and internationally on the topic of traumatic brain injury (TBI), and she is a founding member of the Brain and Spine Injury Center ("BASIC") at UCSF. She has written extensively on the topic of TBI, and is the sole author of the internationally recognized textbook, ""Imaging of Head Trauma"." She has consulted with the "National Institutes of Health" (NIH), the "National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke" (NINDS), the "Centers for Disease Control" (CDC), the "Department of Defen"se, and the "National Football League" on the topic of head injury.
A senior member of the "American Society of Neuroradiology," Dr. Gean obtained her Certification of Added Qualifications (CAQ) in 1996 and was recertified in 2006. Dr. Gean serves as a National Medical Board Examiner for the "American Board of Radiology" for both the certification of trainees at the Board examination level as well as for post-fellowship certification at the CAQ level. Dr. Gean has previously held positions as a San Francisco mayoral delegate to the Philippines, Vietnam, and China, and she continues to volunteer as a neuroradiology consultant to the Asia/Pacific Rim. Dr. Gean has delivered over 200 national and international invited lectures, written 4 books, 24 book chapters, and over 100 peer-reviewed manuscripts and scientific abstracts. Dr. Gean's editorial activities include "JAMA, American Journal of Neuroradiology, Radiology, Journal of Trauma, Journal of Neurotrauma, Annals of Neurology, Journal of Neuro-AIDS, "and the" Journal of Computed Assisted Tomography. " In 2008, Dr. Gean volunteered her clinical expertise at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany to study combat TBI suffered in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. Through this experience, she has devoted her recent academic pursuits to understanding the similarities and differences between civilian and battlefield brain injury. In recognition of that work, Dr. Gean has recently finished another single-authored textbook titled ""Brain Injury: Applications from War and Terrorism." "

Format: Hardcover
While the main focus of the book seems to be on case studies, the text is sufficiently readable to allow a relative novice in TBI (but an expert in MRI) to comprehend and move through at a good rate. The subject is admittedly horrific, but it is important and appreciated that the book deals with the realities of battlefield injuries in a direct, medical manner; there is no shying away from the complex issues of the injuries themselves nor the reasons for them. I was also impressed with the concise, accurate description of imaging modalities and their limitations, as well as a circumspect presentation of new possibilities. Overall, a very good book that has assisted greatly in my understanding of just where, and how, MRI may contribute to TBI.
