This book, now in its third, completely revised and updated edition, offers a critical approach to the challenging interpretation of the latest research data obtained using functional neuroimaging in whiplash injury. Such a comprehensive guide to recent and current international research in the field is more necessary than ever, given that the confusion regarding the condition and the medicolegal discussions surrounding it have increased further despite the publication of much literature on the subject. In recent decades especially the functional imaging methods - such as single-photon emission tomography, positron emission tomography, functional MRI, and hybrid techniques - have demonstrated a variety of significant brain alterations. Functional Neuroimaging in Whiplash Injury - New Approaches covers all aspects, including the imaging tools themselves and the various methods of image analysis. Details on biomechanics, including the finite element method and facts on historical whiplash experiments and crash tests have now been added to this new edition. The book will continue to help physicians, patients and their relatives and friends, and others to understand this condition as a disease.
