Sectional Anatomy for Imaging Professionals, Fourth Edition
This text was written to address the needs of today’s practicing health professional. As technology in diagnostic imaging advances, so does the need to competently recognize and identify cross-sectional anatomy. Our goal was to create a clear, concise text that would demonstrate in an easy-to-use yet comprehensive format the anatomy the health professional is required to understand to optimize patient care. The text was purposely designed to be used both as a clinical reference manual and as an instructional text, either in a formal classroom environment or as a self-instructional volume.
Included are close to 1000 high-quality MR and CT images for every feasible plane of anatomy most commonly imaged. An additional 350 anatomic maps and line drawings related to the MR and CT images add to the learner’s understanding of the anatomy being studied. In addition, pathology boxes describe common pathologies related to the anatomy presented, assisting the reader in making connections between the images in the text and common pathologies that will be encountered in clinical practice. Updated tables are used to summarize and organize key information in each chapter. For example, tables that summarize muscle group information include points of origin and insertion, as well as functions, for the muscle structures pertinent to the images the reader is studying.
NEW TO THIS EDITION
• Updated content to reflect the latest ARRT and ASRT curriculum guidelines
• Expanded images in the lymphatic system
• Second color added to the design to make difficult content easier to digest
CONTENT AND ORGANIZATION
The images include identification of vital anatomic structures to assist the health professional in locating and identifying the desired anatomy during actual clinical examinations. The narrative accompanying these images clearly and concisely describes the location and function of the anatomy in a format easily understood by health professionals. The text is divided into chapters by anatomic regions. Each chapter of the text contains an outline that provides an overview of the chapter’s contents, pathology boxes that briefly describe common pathologies related to the anatomy being presented, tables designed to organize and summarize the anatomy contained in the chapter, and reference illustrations that provide the correct orientation for ease of locating the anatomy of interest.
A Workbook and an Evolve site complement the text.
When used together, these additional tools create a virtual learning system/reference resource.
Workbook: The Workbook provides practice opportunities for the user to identify specific anatomy. The
Workbook includes learning objectives that focus on the key elements of each chapter, a variety of practice items to test the reader’s knowledge of key concepts, labeling exercises to test the reader’s knowledge of the anatomy, case studies to provide relevance for clinical applications, and answers to exercises.
Student Resources on Evolve: An image collection with approximately 1000 images.
Instructor Resources on Evolve: These resources include a test bank with approximately 500 questions and an image collection with approximately 1000 images.

Many provided encouragement and direction as the compilation of this text commenced. Danielle Frazier and Manchu Mohan had the tiresome duty of encouraging us to meet deadlines, which they did with grace and patience. Sonya Seigafuse had the daunting task of stra tegically pulling it all together. We are indebted to them for their editorial assistance in seeing this project through completion. We wish to extend our gratitude to everyone who thought the first, second, and third editions had value and to those who took the time to provide con structive criticism and suggestions for further improvements and increased accuracy. And to the many students, peers, and colleagues for providing feedback so that we could see the text from many different perspectives.
The following individuals and institutions deserve special acknowledgment:
• Chris Hayden for his tremendous patience, knowledge, and time invested in helping us find and create all of the new CT images for the third edition. And St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center for providing the CT images.
• Mary Pullin from Philips Medical Systems for providing some beautiful MR images.
• Dave Arnold and St. Luke’s Regional Medical Center, as well as Kevin Bean and Intermountain Medical Imaging, for providing the majority of the MR images.
We owe a debt of gratitude to Marie Dean who provided numerous new illustrations and revised many old drawings creating more accuracy and consistency in the visual presentation of the artwork throughout the text.
