First released in 1991, Human Sectional Anatomy set new criteria for the standard of cadaver sections and accompanying radiological pictures. Now in its 3rd version, this unsurpassed caliber is still and is additional more desirable by way of a few worthwhile new material.

As with the former variants, the excellent full-colour cadaver sections are in comparison with CT and MRI pictures, with accompanying, labelled line diagrams. some of the radiological photographs were changed with new examples, taken at the so much up-to date gear to make sure very good visualisation of the anatomy. thoroughly new web page spreads were extra to enhance the book's assurance, together with pictures taken utilizing multidetector CT know-how, and a few appealing 3D quantity rendered CT photos. The photographic fabric is more advantageous via beneficial notes, prolonged for the 3rd variation, with info of significant anatomical and radiological positive aspects.

Sample text

The corona radiata (15) comprises a fan-shaped arrangement of afferent and efferent projection fibres, which join the grey matter to lower centres. On the computed tomography (CT) image, it appears as a curved linear area of low attenuation termed the centrum semiovale. The superficial temporal artery, of which the parietal branch can be seen at (7), is the smaller terminal branch of the external carotid artery, the other being the maxillary artery. The middle terminal branch can be seen immediately in front of (4).

In this subject it is about average. It may be much larger or, conversely, may be all but absent. It is generally more prominent in males. In the presence of a mid-line metopic suture of the frontal bone, which is present in about 9% of subjects, the frontal sinuses develop separately on either side of the suture. The distal extremity of the cerebellum (20), the cerebellar tonsil on each side, lies immediately superior to the foramen magnum (15). Lumbar puncture in a patient with raised intracranial pressure must never be performed; this would result in the cerebellar tonsils herniating through the foramen magnum with compression of the medulla oblongata, with its contained vital respiratory and cardiac centres, and resultant death.

It is divided by a median septum (22) and drains anteriorly into the nasal cavity at the sphenoethmoidal recess. Note the relations of the labyrinthine artery (40), a branch of the basilar artery (37), the facial nerve (41) and the vestibulocochlear (or auditory) nerve (42) as they enter the internal auditory meatus of the temporal bone together with the close relationships of the trigeminal nerve (V) (39) and the cerebellum (35). As an acoustic neuroma of the vestibulocochlear nerve enlarges, it stretches the adjacent cranial nerves V and VII anteriorly and also presses on the cerebellum and brain stem to produce the cerebello-pontine angle syndrome.
