About this book

This clinically oriented book will familiarize the reader with all aspects of the diagnosis of tumors and other disorders of the pituitary gland by means of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The coverage includes acromegaly, Cushing’s disease, Rathke cleft cysts, prolactinomas, incidentalomas, nonsecreting adenomas, other lesions of the sellar area, hypophysitis, and central diabetes insipidus. Normal radiologic anatomy and the numerous normal variants are described, and guidance is also provided on difficulties, artifacts, and other pitfalls. The book combines concise text and high-quality images with a question and answer format geared toward the needs of the practitioner. MRI is today considered the cornerstone in the diagnosis of diseases of the hypophyseal-hypothalamic region but the relatively small size of the pituitary gland, its deep location, the many normal anatomic variants, and the often tiny size of lesions can hinder precise evaluation of the anatomic structures and particularly the pituitary gland itself. Radiologists and endocrinologists will find MRI of the Pituitary Gland to be full of helpful information on this essential examination, and the book will also be of interest to internists and neurosurgeons.

Reviews

“Reading this book and studying the many excellent illustrations has reinvigorated my interest in pituitary disease … . I would recommend this book as a reference text for any department undertaking a significant volume of pituitary imaging and as essential reading for any practicing neuroradiologist or trainee who wishes to consolidate or advance their knowledge of pituitary MRI. No doubt endocrinologists and pituitary surgeons would also find it of value.” (Dr. Chris Rowland Hill, RAD Magazine, August, 2017) 

“Professor Bonneville should be congratulated on a legacy text that stands as testimony to his academic career. His contribution will continue to teach and inspire endocrinologists and neuroradiologists throughout their careers for years to come.” (Richard Aviv, Radiology, Vol. 284 (2), 2017)

“This image-rich book provides a focused discussion on MRI imaging of the normal and abnormal pituitary gland. … it is most appropriate for neuroradiologists who will interpret these studies on a routine basis. Endocrinologists may also benefit from the images, as they often review studies on their patients. … The most impressive feature is the excellent quality of the images, which demonstrate the findings well and are appropriately labeled.” (Tara Catanzano, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2016)

About the authors

J.-F.Bonneville is a Professor of Neuroradiology, former Head of the Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology at the University Hospital of Besançon, France. He is presently an Invited Professor in Professor A.Beckers’ Department of Endocrinology at the University Hospital of Liège, Belgium. Professor J.-F. Bonneville has been involved in imaging of the pituitary region since he was a fellow at the Hospital of Pitié Salpetrière in Paris. He is the author of more than 60 peer review papers solely devoted to CT and MRI of the pituitary gland and of two major books, “Radiology of the Sella Turcica” and “Computed Tomography of the Pituitary Gland”, considered at the time as two essential references. Professor Bonneville is well known for his original approach to the diagnosis of patients suspected of pituitary diseases, in closely combining clinical, biological and imaging data. He is recognized all over the word as an undisputed expert in the field of MRI of the Pituitary Gland.
