This superb atlas of the sectional anatomy of the head and neck (exclusive of the CNS) is presented in two complementary planes, coronal and horizontal. Sixty-four exceptional pen-and-ink illustrations accurately capture the fine detail of 3mm thick sections through the region. Every detail was exactly transferred from photographs of the section and its identification was confirmed by microdissection of the exposed surface. These pen-and-ink images have been reproduced at natural size in labeled and unlabeled pairs, an approach that allows the complete identification of structures without masking critical anatomical detail. The captions that accompany each set of illustrations provide brief, authoritative information about the section and how it relates to adjacent tissues. Difficult concepts such as regional compartments and facial spaces are clearly explained, reflecting the broad experience of the senior author in teaching the basic as well as the applied clinical anatomy of the head and neck. Twenty-two sections have been selected for radiographic imaging. These high-resolution radiographs portray planar detail at a level which closely simulates that revealed by high-quality CT images of the region. Introductory chapters review the history of sectional anatomy and provide a unique overview of the fundamental organization of the head and neck. They enhance the value of an atlas that will guide the student and clinician through a sequential study of this anatomically intricate region and will aid radiologists in interpreating bony images and relating them to the soft tissues which surround them.This superb atlas of the sectional anatomy of the head and neck (exclusive of the CNS) is presented in two complementary planes, coronal and horizontal.
