Spread the love


Product description

First published in 1991, Human Sectional Anatomy set new standards for the quality of cadaver sections and accompanying radiological images. Now in its third edition, this unsurpassed quality remains and is further enhanced by some useful new material.

As with the previous editions, the superb full-colour cadaver sections are compared with CT and MRI images, with accompanying, labelled line diagrams. Many of the radiological images have been replaced with new examples, taken on the most up-to date equipment to ensure excellent visualisation of the anatomy. Completely new page spreads have been added to improve the book’s coverage, including images taken using multidetector CT technology, and some beautiful 3D volume rendered CT images. The photographic material is enhanced by useful notes, extended for the third edition, with details of important anatomical and radiological features.


“This does an excellent job of providing beautiful, well labelled photographs of cross sections of embalmed human material in conjunction with classic radiological images … This book is a must for radiologists in training who are learning to interpret sectional images. 4 Stars!”
―Dr George C. Enders, University of Kansas Medical Center, Doody Publishing Service

“[it is] essential for at least one copy of this atlas to be readily available in all hospital and departmental libraries. It will be consulted very frequently by radiologists and radiographers, clinicians, medical students and students of other paramedical disciplines – in fact by anyone who wishes to deepen their appreciation of cross-sectional anatomy.”
―RAD Magazine, 2008

“This is certainly the best text book of sectional anatomy about. It is beautifully produced and the photographs of cross sections of embalmed human material are the best I have ever seen. This book is an absolute must for radiologists and radiographers in training but it is also an essential reference book for anatomists and medical students. I would also strongly recommend it to those studying for the MRCS and the intercollegiate FRCS, as the ability to interpret images is an important part of the viva component of the examination. It will be consulted frequently by anyone who wishes to enhance his or her appreciation of cross-sectional anatomy. It is a veritable gem.”
―Annals of The Royal College of Surgeons of England

“I would recommend this book to any student studying medicine.”
―Oxford Medical School Gazette
