“With this atlas, we set out to go beyond what has been previously published... It is our hope that the Atlas will provide new insight and an improved understanding of the anatomy of the brain and surrounding structures."
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 06, 2015
This August, Demos Medical will release Imaging Anatomy of the Human Brain, a spectacular, comprehensive visual atlas offering the most precise, cutting-edge images of normal cerebral anatomy available today. Truly an “atlas for the 21st century,” the book presents a detailed overview, with more than 1,000 black and white and color images acquired through the use of a vast array of techniques, including computer generated 3D modeling of the brain. Images from advanced techniques, such as diffusion tensor imaging and tractography are presented allowing visualization of the detailed white matter fiber tracts, not possible to see on standard MRI imaging.
This state-of-the-art atlas will serve as an authoritative learning tool in the classroom, and as an invaluable practical resource at the workstation or in the office or clinic, for clinicians, trainees, and students in the neurologically-based medical and non-medical specialties.
The book – written by neuroradiologists Neil M. Borden, MD and Scott E. Forseen, MD and anatomist Cristian Stefan, MD – is available for preorder from Demos Medical via the link above, and from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Additionally, it provides a single source reference, which allows the interested reader ease of use, cross-referencing, and the ability to visualize high-resolution images with detailed labeling.
Commented co-author Neil M. Borden, MD: “With this atlas, we set out to go beyond what has been previously published in terms of content and breadth of coverage. Our goal was to use the best available techniques to provide high resolution images with extensive labeling and detailed color illustrations of the brain and cranial nerves, and focused views of certain clinically relevant brain structures that can be difficult to see on routine imaging. Views of the facial skeleton, orbits, paranasal sinuses, temporal bones, and calvarium are included, and 3D reconstructions offer a different perspective to integrate the information from the images. It is our hope that the Atlas will provide new insight and an improved understanding of the anatomy of the brain and surrounding structures."
Of Imaging Anatomy’s release, Beth Barry, Publisher, Demos Medical, said: “For radiologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons and more, Imaging Anatomy is a revelatory book that delves deeper into the human brain than any visual guide today. Demos Medical is excited to publish it as part of its decades-long tradition of excellence in neurology and beyond.”
A companion volume, Imaging Anatomy of the Human Spine, from author team Scott Forseen and Neil Borden, will be released in December and may also be preordered.
