about this item

This atlas will provide a detailed overview of normal cerebral anatomy utilizing high-resolution, state-of-the-art images. All current modalities will be represented including MRI, CT, cerebrovascular angiography, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), functional MRI, and spectroscopy. Fetal MRI and cerebral anatomy of the newborn with ultrasound is also covered. Gross anatomical photographs and correlative color drawings further enhance understanding of the complex cerebral vasculature. Written by a neuroradiologist and anatomist who are deeply involved in medical education, the goal is to offer an extensive multimodality atlas of manageable size to be used as a learning tool in the classroom or clinical reference at the workstation or in the office. The text is minimal; the hallmark of the book will be sharp, beautiful images with detailed anatomic labeling—many acquired with newly developed techniques of advanced brain imaging that allow visualization of structures not possible with conventional MR or CT. According to Dr. Borden, the addition of these images will elevate a conventional anatomic brain atlas (of which there are many) to one at the cutting edge of technology—an atlas for the 21st century, which should have a long shelf life since anatomy doesn't change.

The most precise, cutting-edge images of normal cerebral anatomy available today are the centerpiece of this spectacular atlasfor clinicians, trainees, and students in the neurologically-based medical and non-medical specialties. Truly an ?atlas for the 21st century,? this comprehensive visual reference presents a detailed overview of cerebral anatomy acquired through the use of multiple imaging modalities including advanced techniques that allow visualization of structures not possible with conventional MRI or CT. Beautiful color illustrations using 3-D modeling techniques based upon 3D MR volume data sets further enhances understanding of cerebral anatomy and spatial relationships. The anatomy in these color illustrations mirror the black and white anatomic MR images presented in this atlas. Written by two neuroradiologists and an anatomist who are also prominent educators, along with more than a dozen contributors, this state-of-the-art atlas will serve as an authoritative learning tool in the classroom, and as an invaluable practical resource at the workstation or in the office or clinic.
