About the Books

These comprehensive references present a detailed overview of brain and spine anatomy and adjacent structures acquired through the use of multiple imaging modalities and advanced techniques—including MRI, CT, CTA, MRA, functional MRI, DTI with tractography, digital subtraction and catheter angiography, x-ray, fluoroscopy, and ultrasound. Written by neuroradiologists and prominent educators, these state-of-the-art atlases will serve as authoritative learning tools in the classroom and invaluable practical references at the workstation or in the office or clinic.

"This atlas provides high quality images of the brain and adjacent structures in MR, CT, and neonatal ultrasound. The images are clearly labeled with a thorough index to allow for cross referencing between modalities. It is helpful to have atlases for finer techniques, such as the MR evaluation of Liliequist's membrane and temporal bone CT. However, the inclusion of higher-end imaging such as fMRI, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and CT perfusion makes for a complete neuroanatomy atlas that will be useful for a long time.

Inside the Atlases

Each atlas contains more than 1,000 meticulously presented and labelled images acquired through the use of multiple imaging modalities and advanced techniques that allow visualization of structures not possible with conventional MRI or CT scans. Take a closer look at sample images from both atlases now.

These downloads contain selected images from chapters on the brain, cerebellum, cranial nerves, and regional intracranial anatomy and orbits, as well as high quality images that expertly visualize the human spine and adjacent structures.

 

Bonus Content: Watch Videos

Watch high-resolution videos available online only and generated from hundreds of images used to illustrate cranial anatomy in Imaging Anatomy of the Human Brain.

Sagittal T2 of the Brain

This movie clip is a loop generated from 340 images from a 3D High Resolution T2 weighted MRI sequence of the subject used in Chapter 3 of Imaging Anatomy of the Human Brain.

T2 Axial Cranial Nerves

This video clip was obtained using a high resolution T2 weighted 3D sequence called DRIVE. This video was created from 380 images. The T2 DRIVE sequence is very useful to visualize the cranial nerves as in this case. These images were used to illustrate various cranial nerves in Chapter 6 of Imaging Anatomy of the Human Brain.

 

Axial MRA Source

This movie clip, generated from 180 axial (cross sectional) images, represents the source images used to create the maximum intensity projection (MIP) magnetic resonance angiographic (MRA) images which will be demonstrated in movie clips to follow. This set of images shows the normal intracranial arterial vasculature. This MRA was obtained without the use of intravenous contrast material.

Intracranial MRA

This movie clip was generated after creation of the maximum intensity projection (MIP) images utilizing the axial source images seen in the above video clip. The intracranial arterial vasculature is normal in appearance. The video clip was created by linking the MIP images in different projections (angles). Please note the slight degree of patient motion during the movie clip.

 

Intracranial MRV

This movie clip demonstrates the normal appearance of the intracranial venous system by linking individual maximum intensity projection (MIP) images with the head appearing to move from side to side. The patient is not actually moving. The appearance of motion is created by linking multiple MIP images in different projections (angles). Please note the slight degree of patient motion during the movie clip.

Intracranial MRV 2

This movie clip demonstrates the normal appearance of the intracranial venous system by linking individual maximum intensity projection (MIP) images with the heading appearing to move in an up and down motion. The patient is not actually moving. The appearance of motion is created by linking multiple MIP images in different projections (angles). Please note the slight degree of patient motion during the movie clip.

 

Axial T2, Brain

This movie clip was generated using 372 axial (cross sectional) images reformatted from the original set of images obtained in the sagittal (from the side/lateral) plane. These images were obtained using T2 weighted MR technique. Normal intracranial anatomy is demonstrated.

Coronal T2, Brain

This movie clip was generated using 462 coronal (from the front) images reformatted from the original set of images obtained in the sagittal (from the side/lateral) plane. These images were obtained using T2 weighted MR technique. Normal intracranial anatomy is demonstrated.

 

Axial T1, with Contrast

This movie clip was generated using 267 axial (cross sectional) images reformatted from the original set of images obtained in the sagittal (from the side) plane. These images were obtained using T1 weighted MR technique. The images were obtained after the intravenous administration of contrast (gadolinium). Contrast is identified within the intracranial arterial system, and more prominently the venous system, in addition to structures lacking a blood brain barrier such as the pituitary and pineal gland and the dura. The structures demonstrating enhancement become white using T1 weighted images. Normal intracranial anatomy is demonstrated.

Coronal T1, with Contrast

This movie clip was generated using 335 coronal (from the front) images reformatted from the original set of images obtained in the sagittal (from the side/lateral) plane. These images were obtained using T1 weighted MR technique. The images were obtained after the intravenous administration of contrast (gadolinium). Normal intracranial anatomy is demonstrated. Contrast is identified within the intracranial arterial and more prominently the venous system in addition to structures lacking a blood brain barrier such as the pituitary and pineal gland and the dura. The structures demonstrating enhancement become white using T1 weighted images.

 

Coronal T1, Hippocampus

This video clip was generated using T1 weighted MR images obtained in the coronal (from the front) plane. Detailed, normal anatomy of the hippocampus and adjacent structures is demonstrated.
