This book provides clinicians with a reliable reference, written by prominent figures in neuroradiology and old age psychiatry, which draws together current knowledge of late life mental disorders as revealed by neuroimaging. A highly illustrated introductory chapter provides a useful overview of the various techniques of neuroimaging now available. The following chapters, also extensively illustrated, survey the contribution of neuroimaging to understanding the specific psychiatric disorders of late life, and the book concludes with guidelines for clinicians on the choice of imaging for the investigation of their patients. For researchers this is a useful and authoritative review of current knowledge regarding neuroimaging and the older psychiatric patient. Its primary aim, however, is to educate and advise clinicians dealing with the protean manifestations of psychiatric disorder in later life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... clearly written ... lavish illustration.' Nature Medicine
'Besides presenting the data for the clinician, this comprehensive review will also be appreciated by researchers in this field.' Clare Galton, Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry
' ... in the next edition - which will undoubtedly be needed ...' Francis I. Caird
' ... well structured, with the right balance of specific explanations and comparisons of the different neuroimaging techniques, and description of their indications, advantages, disadvantages and limitations from the perspective of a clinician.' Zuzana Walker
' ... well-written and informative.' Neuro-radiology
'The book's real strength comes from breadth of imaging techniques covered and its logical division into background, findings in normal ageing and specific disorders and a subsequent brief, non-prescriptive review of the principles guiding the rational and effective use of clinical neuroimaging. In addition to being a thorough review and helpful introduction to the large volume of research that continues to emerge in the field, this book should certainly meet its stated primary aim of utility in day-to-day clinical practice.' International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry
'... comprehensively describes the neurologic and psychiatric changes in the ageing brain ... neuropathology of brain ageing and complements other functional neuroimaging reference sources.' James M. Mountz, Clinical Nuclear Medicine
