This superbly illustrated atlas provides a comprehensive presentation of the normal sectional anatomy of the musculoskeletal system to aid in the diagnosis of diseases affecting the joints, soft tissues, bones, and bone marrow. A precise, full-colour drawing accompanies each high-quality sectional image, helping the reader to gain a solid understanding of the topographic anatomy and to differentiate between normal and pathologic conditions. Following examples of whole-body imaging, the atlas offers complete representations of the spinal column and the upper and lower extremities. The contiguous images of the extremities in transverse sections facilitate the identification of structures extending beyond the joints.
Key features: * Top-quality MRI scans, including whole-body views, produced with the most current, high-performance equipment * Full-colour illustrations drawn by the authors for optimal precision and accuracy * Easy identification of anatomic structures through a uniform color code in the drawings * Contiguous cross-sectional anatomy of the extremities * Information on the location and direction of each slice for rapid orientation Atlas of Sectional Anatomy: The Musculoskeletal System is an invaluable reference for the daily practice of radiologists, radiology residents, and radiologic technologists.show more
