The original and didactically convincing presentation throughout the book, reflects the authors' extensive experience in pre– and postgraduate teaching of anatomy and radiology. An introductory chapter explains succinctly the essentials of the imaging and examination techniques.
The number of images has been increased about 50% in this new edition, and many images of the first edition have been updated. Among the additions are a comprehensive MRI series of the brain in three planes, shown in both T1 and T2 weighted recordings; ultrasound images of the newborn brain; a high resolution coronal CT series of the splanchnocranium; an axial CT–series of hand and wrist; and a comprehensive X–ray series of male and female bone development in the hand for assessment of "bone age" up to 18 years of age.
Both for medical students and doctors the book will serve as the all–round reference collection linking anatomy and modern diagnostic imaging.
