This book correlates gross anatomic sectional anatomy with sectional anatomy of the human body as imaged by CT and MRI. Gross anatomic sections are compared with imaging sections taken through the same anatomic reference plane. The major anatomic structures in each section are labeled on the gross specimen and the CT or MRI image. This book provides a cross sectional anatomic reference for medical students, radiology trainees, and general radiologists. As cross sectional imaging becomes increasingly important in the diagnosis of illness, understanding cross sectional anatomy becomes increasingly relevant to training physician. This book is primarily directed toward training physicians and physicians in practicing general radiology who need a broad reference of general anatomic detail. Gross anatomic sections are correlated with cross sectional images of the body. Major anatomic structures are labeled on the anatomic specimens and correlating images. This book is a useful resource for training physicians wishing to learn cross sectional anatomy. General radiologists will find the book helpful in identifying many major anatomic structures encountered during cross sectional imaging procedures exclusive of more subspecialized applications. Its new sections of the extremities are helpful in identifying major muscle groups. However, its depth of anatomic review is not adequate for the subspecialist, who would be better served reviewing anatomy in text books specifically dedicated to cross sectional imaging either by imaging modality or by organ system. The best use for this book is as a general reference in a medical library.
A general sectional anatomy atlas for general radiologists, radiology trainees, and medical students. This edition (second was 1989) extends the anatomical areas to the extremities. The cadaveric transverse, coronal and saggital sections of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle joints, as well as the transverse sections between these joints, have been added and correlated with MR images. With the addition of the extremities, the atlas covers every part of the body: brain, head & neck, chest, abdomen & pelvis, and upper and lower extremities. Annotation c.
