The new tinnitus book is now available. Again it was Aage Møller, who had initiated this project, and who had coordinated the effort of a large number of scientists and clinicians within the TRI community. The book “Textbook of Tinnitus” has been published by Springer.
“The proposed book provides a multidisciplinary comprehensive coverage of diagnosis and the treatments of different forms of tinnitus. A general introduction provides an overview of subjective tinnitus emphasizing that tinnitus is not one disease but a group of rather diverse disorders with different pathophysiology, different causes and consequently, different treatments. Tinnitus involves many disciplines, many specialties of medicine and surgery, and disciplines such as psychology and audiology. Diagnosis of tinnitus is a challenge because there are so many different forms of tinnitus and there are few objective signs and imaging methods are of little help. Treatment is equally challenging because of the difficulties of identifying the cause and the anatomical location of the pathology. The pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment are topics that are taught sparsely in medical school and there is a lack of comprehensive books of the clinical management of patients with tinnitus. The proposed book provides a wide-ranging coverage of up-to-date knowledge about tinnitus, its diagnosis and management, written by clinicians and scientists from many disciplines who are active in the field. The proposed book will cover the results of recent progress in diagnosis and treatment for tinnitus.”
