This APK presents the basic anatomy needed to interpret modern sectional images.
In making a diagnosis from sectional images, even experienced diagnosticians must adapt their thinking to the sectional portrayal of anatomic
features. The Pocket Atlas of Sectional Anatomy aims to facilitate this
process by presenting the two modalities that have the greatest practical
importance in modern sectional imaging: computed tomography and
magnetic resonance imaging.
The importance of these modalities rests partly on their high resolution.
So many of the images were produced with 3-tesla instruments. We wish
to express our gratitude to the manufacturers, Siemens and Philips.
We have attempted to provide vivid, comprehensive coverage of sectional anatomic details while still making the book compact and easy to use.
The four-color illustrations were considered an essential part of this goal
to maintain clarity despite the quantity of information.
The contents of the three volumes (I: Head and Neck, II: Chest and
Abdomen, and III: Musculoskeletal System), which comprise a unit,
follow a strict format in which each CT or MR image is accompanied by
a correlative color diagram and a reduced-scale schematic drawing
indicating the level of the section. This format conveys maximum information in a minimum of space.
