about

This 'in vivo' atlas contains more than 50 magnetic resonance (MR) images of the brain. Each structure is represented in the axial, coronal and sagittal plane, magnified in colour schemes and reconstructed in 3D images with a useful millimetric scale. The atlas offers the reader a practical and simple tool for surgical planning and for diagnostic and anatomical studies. The high level of anatomical definition of the in vivo MR images means that there is no loss in precision as a result of post-mortem changes. No doubt, this book is an excellent teaching instrument for all students of the neurosciences, regardless of the individual level of training and expertise.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This colour atlas of deep brain nuclei and other structures will prove to be a useful aid to both the functional neurosurgeon and the discerning neuroradiologist. ... The in vivo image capture, obtained with MRI, provides a more accurate view of these deep-seated neuroanatomical structures, making it superior to those atlases based on cadaveric imaging. Consequently, this atlas will prove useful both in the operating theatre and reporting room alike. The atlas is well organized and easy to navigate." (R.A. Trivedi, European Radiology, Vol. 14 (8), 2004)"This is a 3D atlas of brain structures acquired from MRI of normal volunteers, produced by the Department of Neurosurgery in Messina, Italy. . it is truly a pictorial atlas. . The 3D images are impressive and well produced technically . . In summary, this atlas may have most appeal to neurosurgeons but is a useful refresher for neuroradiologists . ." (P.White, Neuroradiology, Vol. 44 (11), 2002)
