Overview

An ideal resource for the classroom or the clinical setting, Sectional Anatomy for Imaging Professionals, 3rd Edition provides a comprehensive, easy-to-understand approach to the sectional anatomy of the entire body. Side-by-side presentations of actual diagnostic images from both MRI and CT modalities and corresponding anatomic line drawings illustrate the planes of anatomy most commonly demonstrated by diagnostic imaging. Concise descriptions detail the location and function of the anatomy, and clearly labeled images help you confidently identify anatomic structures during clinical examinations and produce the best possible diagnostic images.

Side-by-side presentation of anatomy illustrations and corresponding CT and MRI images clarifies the location and structure of sectional anatomy.

More than 1,500 high-quality images detail sectional anatomy for every body plane commonly imaged in the clinical setting.

Pathology boxes help you connect commonly encountered pathologies to related anatomy for greater diagnostic accuracy.

Anatomy summary tables provide quick access to muscle information, points of origin and insertion, and muscle function for each muscle group.

Reference drawings and corresponding scanning planes accompany actual images to help you recognize the correlation between the two.

NEW! 150 new scans and 30 new line drawings familiarize you with the latest 3D and vascular imaging technology.

NEW! Chapter objectives help you concentrate on the most important chapter content and study more efficiently.

NEW! Full labels on all scans provide greater diagnostic detail at a glance.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Cris A. Zimmermann, RT (R)(Froedtert Hospital)
Description: This is the third edition of a clinical reference manual and instructional text on sectional anatomy. The book was first published in 1997 and last updated in 2007.
Purpose: This is considered a guide for all the sectional images seen in imaging departments, certainly a worthwhile objective.
Audience: It is intended for healthcare professionals who encounter sectional anatomy images on a daily basis. The authors are both faculty members of college-based radiologic science programs.
Features: The book includes not only line drawings and CT scans, but also MR and 3D images. A few highly schematic drawings of regions in the brain, for example, aid in simplifying some of the more complex regions. Each chapter covers a different region of the body. After an outline of chapter objectives, chapters include a description and several illustrations of a body region. The sporadic pathology boxes that highlight common abnormalities are a unique feature.
Assessment: Although initially the book may appear crowded and perhaps overwhelming, it is a thorough sectional anatomy book best reserved for imaging professionals who need to not only identify the basic structures but also locate some of the more inconspicuous regions of the body. This third edition is in keeping with the amount of sectional imaging that goes on in most of the larger healthcare facilities.
