About this Book

Intracranial atherosclerosis is the dominant cause of stroke in over 70% of the world's population. Globalization is leading to an increasingly heterogeneous society everywhere. Advances in imaging techinology allow this previously inaccessible pathology to be clinically studied.

Edited by internationally renowned clinicians, Intracranial Atherosclerosis is the first book to examine intracranial causes of stroke. Clinical practice is allied with basic science to guide all those with an interest in stroke on the diagnosis and management of intracranial atherosclerosis.
