Sectional Anatomy for Imaging Professionals, 3rd Edition

An ideal resource for the classroom or the clinical setting, Sectional Anatomy for Imaging Professionals, 3rd Edition provides a comprehensive, easy-to-understand approach to the sectional anatomy of the entire body. Side-by-side presentations of actual diagnostic images from both MRI and CT modalities and corresponding anatomic line drawings illustrate the planes of anatomy most commonly demonstrated by diagnostic imaging. Concise descriptions detail the location and function of the anatomy, and clearly labeled images help you confidently identify anatomic structures during clinical examinations and produce the best possible diagnostic images.

    • Side-by-side presentation of anatomy illustrations and corresponding CT and MRI images clarifies the location and structure of sectional anatomy.
    • More than 1,500 high-quality images detail sectional anatomy for every body plane commonly imaged in the clinical setting.
    • Pathology boxes help you connect commonly encountered pathologies to related anatomy for greater diagnostic accuracy.
    • Anatomy summary tables provide quick access to muscle information, points of origin and insertion, and muscle function for each muscle group.
  • Reference drawings and corresponding scanning planes accompany actual images to help you recognize the correlation between the two.
    • NEW! 150 new scans and 30 new line drawings familiarize you with the latest 3D and vascular imaging technology.

No matter how you look at it , sectional anatomy is a tough subject. As an educator, I have experimented with several different sectional anatomy texts. When all is said and done, Kelley & Petersen’s book is the one I ultimately went back to. There are several reasons. One is that is it is complete to point of exhaustion on sectional anatomy. The other books out there are light on material, either in pictures, diagrams, or explanations. Kelley & Peterson is not light. But because of that, it can seem to be more book than necessary. So until something better comes along, this one is it.

I used this to supplement my required text book for my cross sectional anatomy class. The images were great, would recommend for most anyone.

I’m using this book for my MRI anatomy class. While I’ve just broken into this book, so far I’m loving it! The pictures in this book are remarkably high quality, with anatomical diagrams and CT/MRI sectional images included in many planes. The book also uses simple diagrams to show at what level/angle a particular slice in the sectional image displayed (a detail I appreciate). Furthermore, the sectional images are more than adequately labeled, with other anatomy being labeled that is glossed over in other anatomy books I’ve come across. In other words, it’s very detailed! The printed information is sufficient as well. My only gripe is the book is a paperback. While this book is a bit heavy already, I feel it is a little too flimsy as a paperback and I feel the material would be better supported as a hardcover. Besides that, I feel it is a great book!
