In the ten years since publication of the second edition, the diagnostic information provided by new imaging methods (CT, MRI, PET, US) has improved significantly. Clinicians and specialists must master three-dimensional neuroanatomy of the head in order to localize and interpret pathological symptoms and findings. As in the previous editions, the drawings presented here depict anatomic structures in shades of gray similar to the way they are seen in CT and MR images. All drawings of the atlas portion of the book have been made from cadaver sections. This book is designed as a practical tool. The illustrations of the neurofunctional systems as they are localized in the tomographic planes are meant to orient the reader as to their localization in CT, MR and PET images. They also make it possible to extrapolate the clinical symptoms which correlate to the pathological CT and MR findings. The new, third edition includes both T1 and T2 weighted MR images, as well as enhanced detail throughout.
'A richly illustrated state-of-the-art work in neuroanatomy...a practical and instructive diagnostic tool.' -- Surgical and Radiologic AnatomyPraise of earlier editions:'...the authors are to be commended for providing such a large amount of information in such a clearly organized and well-illustrated fashion. I highly recommend this book to all radiologists who interpret cross-sectional images of the brain.' --American Journal of Neuroradiology'This creatively-illustrated atlas and text...is full of useful material and would be an excellent addition to a neuroradiology library.' --Radiology'An excellent textbook of practical anatomy...a valuable reference for studying neuroanatomy...this text should be found in department libraries in these fields [of radiology, neuroradiology, neurology, and neurosurgery]...This beautifully drawn text is an excellent introduction of multiplanar neuroanatomy.' --American Journal of Roentenology
