- Pub. Date:
- Lippincott Williams & Wilkins
This pocket atlas is a handy guide to musculoskeletal anatomy as seen on magnetic resonance images. Prepared by a recognized expert in musculoskeletal MRI, the book presents 98 MR images of the shoulder, arm, elbow, forearm, hand and wrist, pelvis and hips, thigh, knee, calf, and foot and ankle. The images are displayed in the axial, coronal, and sagittal planes, enabling readers to thoroughly familiarize themselves with sagittal and coronal anatomy as it applies to routine MRI practice. Anatomic features are labeled on each image using numbers with legends at the top of the page, and each image is accompanied by a line drawing demonstrating the level and plane of section.Most images were obtained using spin-echo sequences, typically T1-weighted or proton-density sequences. Slice thickness varies depending on location: thinner sections in the joints, and thicker sections in extra-articular regions.
