Overview

This richly illustrated and superbly organized text/atlas is the first volume of the new Diagnostic and Surgical Imaging Anatomy series produced by the innovative medical information systems provider Amirsys®. Written by the preeminent authorities in each radiologic subspecialty, these volumes will give radiologists a thorough understanding of the detailed anatomy that underlies contemporary imaging. Each volume features over 2,500 high-resolution 3T MRI and multidetector row CT images in many planes, combined with over 300 correlative full-color anatomic drawings that show human anatomy in the projections radiologists use. Succinct, bulleted text accompanying the images identifies the clinical and pathologic entities in each anatomic area.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Seth Jay Kligerman, MD, MS (University of Colorado School of Medicine)
Description: This is an all encompassing neuroimaging atlas. With great detail and precision, it explores the complex anatomy of the brain, spine, head, and neck.
Purpose: According to the author, the purpose is to provide physicians with a neuroanatomy atlas that will improve both the accuracy and efficiency of image interpretation. Given the complexity of this subject, the objectives are worthy and the book is much needed. The authors meet their goals and in many ways exceed them. This book makes all of my other neuroanatomy atlases useless.
Audience: The book is written for both radiologists and surgeons looking to improve their knowledge of neuroimaging anatomy. This book is perfect not only for people at the attending level, but also for residents or anyone trying to navigate through the complexities of neuroanatomy. The authors are some of the top neuroradiologists in the country and their publication demonstrates their expertise.
Features: Via both beautiful color illustrations and detailed neuroimaging slides, the book covers all neuroanatomy including the spine, head, and neck. The book is amazing in its detail and the quality of the images is unsurpassed. All structures are depicted using multiple modalities (primarily CT and MRI) in all three planes. The beautiful color art enhances the appearance and usefulness of the book. If you are not familiar with the Diagnostic Imaging series, you might have difficulty navigating the book at first, since its setup is unique. There are no real shortcomings to the book, although there are one or two typographical errors.
Assessment: This is, by far, the best neuroimaging atlas. I have many atlases, including Imaging Atlas of Human Anatomy, 3rd edition, by Weir and Abrahams (Elsevier, 2003), Cross-Sectional Human Anatomy, by Dean and Herbener (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2000), Atlas of Human Anatomy, 4th edition, by Netter (Elsevier, 2006), and Atlas of the Visible Human Male, by Spitzer and Whitlock (Jones and Bartlett, 1997). For neuroanatomy, I can honestly say that my use of these other sources will decrease dramatically, if not entirely.

    Best anatomy book period (for cns/h&n/spine)

    I've been looking for a book like this for a loooong time. Pimp sessions may not be so bad anymore. Perfect for residents/fellows/attendings in radiology.
