This one-of-a-kind book is unique in its side-by-side presentation of actual, high-quality diagnostic CT and MR scans and detailed line drawings of anatomy. Its concise and clearly written text is closely correlated to more than 800 images and line drawings, providing a comprehensive yet easy-to-understand sectional anatomy resource. The book's distinctive design makes it easy for both students and practitioners to relate and apply what they learn to the clinical setting.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Cris Anne Zimmermann, R.T.(R)(Froedtert Hospital)
Description: Since the first edition of this book was published in 1997, significant changes have occurred in sectional imaging modalities. This edition adds these new modalities in an easy to use clinical reference manual and instructional text.
Purpose: The purpose of this edition is to include 3D and vascular technologies to the already abundant cross sectional images. The authors' intent was to provide "a clear concise text that would demonstrate in an easy to use yet comprehensive format the anatomy the health professional is required to understand to optimize patient care." The book certainly meets the objectives.
Audience: It is written for practicing health professionals. Anyone working in healthcare may be interested in the cross sectional images that we are seeing more and more frequently. For anyone in radiology, the topic is a requirement.
Features: The book covers all anatomic sections of the body by starting with an in-depth description of the anatomy, then showing images that highlight the anatomy discussed in cross section. Particularly interesting are the pathology boxes interspersed throughout describing common conditions related to the anatomy. A shortcoming is the use of abbreviations on the images that require a key to decode.
Assessment: Although this is a comprehensive tool for learning cross sectional anatomy, I prefer the images used in Madden's Introduction to Sectional Anatomy, 2nd edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2008). Madden's book uses no abbreviations and always includes a line drawing corresponding to all of the images. The pathology boxes in this book are useful additions that highlight the common diseases seen in a typical clinical setting. The second edition is a necessity in this age of changing modalities.
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.
