Duvernoy’s Atlas of the Human Brain Stem and Cerebellum: High-Field MRI, Surface Anatomy, Internal Structure, Vascularization and 3 D Sectional Anatomy (Προϊόν Ειδικής Προσφοράς)
Advanced MRI requires advanced knowledge of anatomy. This volume correlates thin-section brain anatomy with corresponding clinical 3 T MR images in axial, coronal and sagittal planes to demonstrate the anatomic bases for advanced MR imaging. It specifically correlates advanced neuromelanin imaging, susceptibility-weighted imaging, and diffusion tensor tractography with clinical 3 and 4 T MRI to illustrate the precise nuclear and fiber tract anatomy imaged by these techniques. Each region of the brain stem is then analyzed with 9.4 T MRI to show the anatomy of the medulla, pons, midbrain, and portions of the diencephalonin with an in-plane resolution comparable to myelin- and Nissl-stained light microscopy (40-60 microns). The volume is carefully organized as a teaching text, using concise drawings and beautiful anatomic/MRI images to present the information in sequentially finer detail, so the reader easily assimilates the relationships among the structures shown by high-field MRI.
- Explains how to read advanced MRI easily by precise correlation of clinical 3T MRI with 2-4 mm thick sections of the brain.
- Includes more than a thousand images displaying nuclear anatomy, fiber tractography, and vascularization of the brain stem and cerebellum in axial, coronal, and sagittal planes.
- Presents organized series of diagrams and images to teach with a minimum of text.
- Prepares you for coming advances in technology with 9.4 T images of the brain stem that rival light microscopy.
