About this book
This atlas demonstrates all components of the body through imaging, in much the same way that a geographical atlas demonstrates components of the world. Put another way, unlike other anatomy atlases it deals directly with imaging anatomy in the form in which it presents itself to a clinician. Each body system and organ is imaged in every plane using all relevant modalities, allowing the reader to gain knowledge of density and signal intensity. Areas and methods not usually featured in imaging atlases are addressed, including the cranial nerve pathways, white matter tractography, and pediatric imaging. As the emphasis is very much on high-quality images with detailed labeling, there is no significant written component; however, ‘pearl boxes’ are scattered throughout the book to provide the reader with greater insight. This atlas will be an invaluable aid to students and clinicians with a radiological image in hand, as it will enable them to look up an exact replica and identify the anatomical components.
