More About This Textbook

Overview

Designed to serve as both a clinical manual and an instructional tool, this text covers the sectional anatomy of the entire body in an easy-to-understand, comprehensive format. The user-friendly design of the book presents actual, diagnostic-quality images from both MRI and CT modalities, side-by-side with line drawings to illustrate the planes of anatomy most commonly imaged. Concise explanations describe the location and function of the anatomy, and each image clearly labels all pertinent anatomic structures to aid in location and identification of anatomy during actual clinical examinations. The result is a practical guide that improves the imaging professional's ability to consistently produce the best possible diagnostic images. Instructor resources are available; please contact your Elsevier sales representative for details.
  • Side-by-side presentations of images and line drawings on the same page spread allow the reader to see correlations between line drawings of physical anatomy and actual, diagnostic-quality CT and MR images.
  • Over 1,300 images and detailed line drawings demonstrate sectional anatomy for every plane of the body that is commonly imaged.
  • Pathology boxes briefly describe common pathologies related to the anatomy being discussed to form connections between the scans in the text and common pathologies readers are likely to encounter in practice.
  • Summary tables organize anatomic information for each major muscle group, listing the muscles, points of origin and insertion, and functions.
  • Anatomic maps - line drawings that show the angle and level of each scan - appear with the actual scans, so readers can easily access the proper orientation for scanning and identifying anatomy.
  • 290 new scans, including more 3D and vascular images, demonstrate current technology.
  • A new introductory chapter provides a foundation by teaching the terminology related to sectional anatomy and preparing the reader for more complex content that follows.
