Modern imaging techniques define the anatomic region infected and the evolution of the disease, help to evaluate treatment efficacy, and frequently can help to determine extra-central nervous system sources of infection, such as sinusitis or mastoiditis. These techniques are discussed by anatomic region, and differential diagnosis based on image pattern is formulated. Special attention is given to the findings in the immunocompromised host and in congenital infection.
