The recent progress of medical imaging due to CT, MRI, and the three-dimensional reconstruction of cerebral structures calls for a better understanding of the anatomy of the brain. Therefore, this book comprises serial sections â 2 mm thick â of the cerebral hemispheres and diencephalon in the coronal, sagittal, and axial planes. So as to point out the level of the sections more accurately, each section is shown from different angles emphasizing the surrounding hemisphere surfaces. This three-dimensional approach has proven to be extremely useful to apprehend the difficult anatomy of the gyri and sulci of the brain. Certain complex cerebral structures such as the occipital lobe, the deep grey matter (basal ganglia and thalamus), and the vascularization are demonstrated in greater detail. The second edition of this successful atlas has been completely revised and updated. 44 serial sections have been added showing the brain in much greater detail. Mostly two MRI views of improved quality are presented with almost every section. A chapter on the vascular anatomy of the brain with beautiful color drawings has been added.
