This "in vivo" atlas contains more than 50 magnetic resonance (MR) images of the brain. Each structure is represented in the axial, coronal and sagittal plane, magnified in colour schemes and reconstructed in 3D images with a useful millimetric scale. The atlas offers the reader a practical and simple tool for surgical planning and for diagnostic and anatomical

Overview

This "in vivo" atlas contains more than 50 magnetic resonance (MR) images of the brain. Each structure is represented in the axial, coronal and sagittal plane, magnified in colour schemes and reconstructed in 3D images with a useful millimetric scale. The atlas offers the reader a practical and simple tool for surgical planning and for diagnostic and anatomical studies. Thanks to the high level of anatomical definition of the in vivo MR images presented in this book, there is no loss in precision as a result of post-mortem changes, which characterizes a classical anatomical atlas, and the overall reliability of the present atlas is significantly enhanced. Finally, this book is an excellent teaching instrument for all students of the neurosciences, regardless of the individual level of training and expertise.
