A brief introductory chapter helps students understand the terminology and patient images described in subsequent chapters. Each chapter is focused on a region of the body and begins with an anatomical overview to give readers a clear understanding of each region essential to understanding the anatomy shown later sectional images. To demonstrate the clinical application of this anatomy, the overview is followed by a series of patient CT, ultrasound, and MR images shown in multiple planes. After the patient images, clinical cases of selected CT, MR, ultrasound, and PET/CT including 3D images have been greatly expanded to motivate students by giving examples of how their knowledge of sectional anatomy can be applied to patient exams." "This third edition is still one of the best sectional anatomy books." Doody's Reviews Cris A. Zimmermann, RT(R)(Froedtert Hospital)
