Hardcover (Print)
Not Available on BN.com
 

Overview

Gain a rich, 3-dimensional grasp of radiologic anatomy!
  • Pairs digital-quality MR, CT, and ultrasound images with color photographs of the corresponding sagittal and cross-sectional anatomy for every area of the body, showing you how to identify bone, muscle, fat, and other tissues.
  • Displays diagnostic images and corresponding anatomic photographs on facing pages, making it easy to correlate anatomy with imaging.
  • Offers more than 1,600 illustrations—300 in full color, almost 1,000 more than the previous edition—to explore sectional anatomy in greater detail than ever before.
  • Presents coronal sections of the head, thorax, abdomen, female pelvis, and male pelvis; oblique coronal and oblique sagittal sections of the shoulder joint; and coronal and sagittal sections of the knee joint.
  • Includes extensive labeling to highlight all important anatomic features.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
REVIEW OF PREVIOUS EDITION:

"The correlation of slices to MR and CT images provides a basis for understanding and interpreting imaging studies...The authors have done an excellent job of correlating the true anatomic slice to the appropriate images...An excellent reference when reviewing sectional imaging studies." -- Academic Radiology

John A. McNulty
This third edition of sectional anatomy has been extensively revised. Images that are not applicable to current imaging have been deleted, and coronal sections of the head, thorax, abdomen, and pelvis and sections of the shoulder and knee along with their correlative CT, MR, and US images have been added. The book's purpose is to present a detailed anatomical view through cadaver sections and ""to display the breadth of anatomy as imaged by CT, MRI, and US."" Students of gross anatomy who wish to enhance their understanding of sectional anatomy are the principal audience. Healthcare practitioners who seek better interpretation of CT, MRI, and US images would also benefit. The book is organized regionally as well as by plane of section. Chapters on cross sections, sagittal sections, and coronal sections of the head are followed by chapters on the thorax, abdomen and pelvis, and perineum (both male and female). Chapters 15 through 20 cover the limbs with special chapters on the shoulder and knee. Each cadaver section is nicely labeled and correlated with adjoining MRI, CT, and US images. The introduction contains brief but excellent descriptions of the physical principles of these imaging modalities. This extensive collection of images gives the reader an excellent instructional source on sectional anatomy as it correlates with modern imaging techniques. Although some of the anatomical details are difficult to see in the black-and-white images of the cadaver sections, this is a minor distraction.
