Overview

The Atlas of Fetal and Neonatal Brain MR is an excellent atlas that fills the gap in coverage on normal brain development. Dr. Paul Griffiths and his team present a highly visual approach to the neonatal and fetal periods of growth. With over 800 images, you’ll have multiple views of normal presentation in utero, post-mortem, and more. Whether you’re a new resident or a seasoned practitioner, this is an invaluable guide to the new and increased use of MRI in evaluating normal and abnormal fetal and neonatal brain development.

  • Covers both fetal and neonatal periods to serve as the most comprehensive atlas on the topic.
  • Features over 800 images for a focused visual approach to applying the latest imaging techniques in evaluating normal brain development.
  • Presents multiple image views of normal presentation to include in utero and post-mortem images (from coronal, axial, and sagittal planes), gross pathology, and line drawings for each gestation.

Editorial Reviews

Reviewer: Noah Emerson, D.O.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: The authors have produced a unique MRI atlas of the normal fetal and postnatal brain.
Purpose: In order to successfully recognize fetal and neonatal CNS pathology, one must know the normal anatomy and maturation. Appropriately, nonionizing radiation, specifically ultrasound, has previously been the mainstay for diagnosis in this age group. However, with survival of younger and younger gestational ages as well as the improvement of MR imaging, more detailed examination is frequently desired. The authors provide a unique atlas of normal fetal and postnatal brain development, an essential tool for understanding this period of brain development.
Audience: Although this atlas may be used by a larger audience, it is focused on practitioners using fetal MRI.
Features: Using MR images, labeled anatomic sketches, and histological photographs, the authors have compiled an amazingly detailed reference.
Assessment: The combination of histological photographs, line diagrams, and MR imaging of this period of brain development in one atlas is quite unique and this is an invaluable book.
