Overview

The first edition of this bestselling title set new standards with its high quality cadaver sections and accompanying CT images. Now, also including MRI images, this new updated edition will continue to be the leading pocket reference on Human Sectional Anatomy. Each full-color cadaver image is compared with corresponding CT and MRI images, produced using the latest technology. The accompanying notes and identification of structures provide a succinct visual guide to the body in section form. The new edition of this concise, portable guide includes over 27 new body sections, and axial sections, coronal and sagittal sections have been included where required.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sandra E. Inouye, PhD (Midwestern University)
Description: This brief, small-format atlas of cross-sectional anatomy combines images from photography of actual cadaveric cross-sections, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and schematic illustrations in order to view relationships of anatomical structures in transverse and vertical sections. This original edition was published in 1994.
Purpose: The purpose is to enable the reader to view the relationships of anatomical structures in transverse and vertical section in order to clarify the conventional appearances of the body's structure as seen in the operating theater, in the dissecting room, and in texts. This is a worthy objective given the widespread use of three-dimensional imaging techniques in the field of medicine for diagnosis, surgery, and medical education. The authors meet their objectives.
Audience: The book targets students of anatomy, surgeons, clinicians, and radiologists. The authors are credible authorities.
Features: The book covers cross-sectional anatomy for the regions of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis, and limbs. The general layout has a photograph of a cadaveric cross-section on one page, with a schematic of the section level, orientation guide, notes, and a MRI or CT on the facing page. This layout enables the reader to easily compare and move between the images of the actual cross-sections and the corresponding MRI or CT images. The schematic of the section levels and orientation guide are helpful for understanding and orienting the cadaveric and MRI/CT images. The quality of all the images is good. The photographs of the cadaveric cross-sections are clear and the contrast and colors are pleasant; the structures are numerically labeled, with the key immediately below. However, like most photographic atlases with numerical labeling, it takes a little time and is somewhat distracting to move back and forth between the numbers and the key in order to discern the various structures in the photograph of the cross-section. The MRI and CT images have good contrast and are accompanied by a helpful schematic immediately adjacent to the figure that has a numerically labeled key. This kind of key, in contrast to the key for the photographs, enables the reader to easily discern the structures in the MRI and CT images. However, the layout of the page, although well-organized, constrains the size of the MRI and CT images in order to fit all of the information on one page. The MRI/CT images are a bit small and would benefit from being doubled in size. Another nice feature of the book is the helpful introductory chapter that describes the techniques (sectioning of cadavers, CT, MRI) used to produce the images, as well as orientation of the sections and images. The index is also useful.
Assessment: This is a very nice reference guide to sectional anatomy. It has a useful, organized layout, the images are of good quality, and it is easy to use. It is a good book for students of anatomy, as well as a good reference or quick-study guide for clinicians, surgeons, and radiologists. The 6.5 X 9-inch format also makes it very portable and attractive for students. I would highly recommend this book to any medical students or allied health students taking a gross anatomy course. It is an inexpensive, clear, well designed, informative, and helpful complementary text for a gross anatomy course. In addition, it is a useful, quick reference for practicing medical professionals to have on their office bookshelves.
