Now in its third edition, Anatomy in Diagnostic Imaging is an unrivalled atlas of anatomy applied to diagnostic imaging. The book covers the entire human body and employs all the imaging modalities used in clinical practice; x-ray, CT, MR, PET, ultrasound and scintigraphy. An introductory chapter explains succinctly the essentials of the imaging and examination techniques drawing on the latest technical developments. In view of the great strides that have been made in this area recently, all chapters have been thoroughly revised in this third edition. The book s original and didactically convincing presentation has been enhanced with over 250 new images. There are now more than 900 images, all carefully selected in order to be user-friendly and easy-to-read, due to their high quality and the comprehensive anatomical interpretation directly placed alongside every one. Both for medical students and practising doctors, Anatomy in Diagnostic Imaging will serve as the go-to all-round reference collection linking anatomy and modern diagnostic imaging.Winner of the Radiology category at the BMA Book Awards 2015
