Editorial Reviews

Review

 A brief introductory chapter helps students understand the terminology and patient images described in subsequent chapters. Each chapter is focused on a region of the body and begins with an anatomical overview to give readers a clear understanding of each region essential to understanding the anatomy shown later sectional images. To demonstrate the clinical application of this anatomy, the overview is followed by a series of patient CT, ultrasound, and MR images shown in multiple planes. After the patient images, clinical cases of selected CT, MR, ultrasound, and PET/CT including 3D images have been greatly expanded to motivate students by giving examples of how their knowledge of sectional anatomy can be applied to patient exams."

"This third edition is still one of the best sectional anatomy books."

Format: Hardcover
I was required to use Mr. Madden's book and workbook for a sectional anatomy class I took for a medical program. This could be a pretty good book, but misses the mark for several reasons:
1. Mislabeling. Many structures are just plain labeled wrong, sometimes egregiously wrong, such as aorta for trachea, etc.
2. Incomplete labeling. For example, in a section where location and identification of common carotids is hugely important, Mr. Madden labels either one side of the image only or something like "int/ext common carotid" without distinguishing which is which. However, knowing which is which is vital!
3. Text boxes. Usually Mr. Madden notes salient features in the text boxes on the facing plates to the CT or MR. However, even when he stresses important anatomical landmarks, he DOES NOT LABEL them on the diagram accompanying the image. The student reads the words but has no way to identify the structure. This is pointless!
4. Lack of correlation: Many times, structures just "appear" on a plate with no connection to their partial appearance on preceding or subsequent plates; yet it is this exact skill that is the foundation of an understanding of sectional anatomy.
5. Workbook: At no time in the workbook does Mr. Madden show a simple schematic indicating the plane of section. This is vital for reference and, again, for correlation.
6. Erroneous terms: There are erroneous, mistyped, misedited, or just plain invented medical terms, such as "optic chiasma" (should be chiasm) and "lenticular nucleus" (should be lentiform).
This book seems like a work in progress but no one is improving it. Why not? For the money, the medical student should get a lot more.

Like others have said "there must be a better textbook out there"

The descriptions go from elementary to MD level. Most of the 2D drawings are difficult to get an idea of where parts are located in a real 3D world.

This book doesn't do it for me or most of my other classmates.

**** update ****

Have found a much better book.

This book is much more accurate, MUCH better drawings which makes this difficult subject easier to understand.

This book is very good for BASIC sectional and cross-sectional anatomical information. It is probably good enough for a Radiography Program's student Modalities Course, but may not contain enough in-depth cross-sectional information for anyone studying to become certified in CT. (NOTE: I myself am NOT certified in CT)

Very difficult to correlate the line drawings with the blown-up grayscale CT slices, which just don't seem to look the same as the real thing. The Sagittal MR slices in chapter 2 are exceptionally difficult for the intended audience to follow.
Factual and typographical errors occur throughout this text, such as identifying the vertebral foramen as the trachea on page 55.
It seems like there could have been a better effort to develop the reader's understanding of 3D anatomy, rather than the brief review of freshman anatomy that is given.
Instructors, please don't inflict this torture on your students.

The book that I bought from this seller is in very good shape. Besides the few highlighted words in the book, I can barely tell it was used. The price was very cheap which was amazing and it arrived to me before I needed it which means it was right on time. Thank you :-)

This book gives you the points of interest that you need to know, without going overboard. It is not overwhelming like some others seem to be. If you are studying CT, then I would recommend this book. It is a little pricey, but worth it.

This book has MRI images and CT images that are not great for sectional anatomy. They could do have done a better job.
