This publication is designed to satisfy the desires of radiologists and radiographers by means of truly depicting the anatomy that's regularly seen on imaging stories. It provides the conventional appearances at the most often used imaging recommendations, together with traditional radiology, ultrasound, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. equally, all proper physique areas are coated: mind, backbone, head and neck, chest, mediastinum and center, stomach, gastrointestinal tract, liver, biliary tract, pancreas, urinary tract, and musculoskeletal process. The textual content accompanying the pictures describes the traditional anatomy in an easy means and gives the clinical details required in an effort to comprehend why we see what we see on diagnostic photographs. important correlative anatomic illustrations in colour were created by means of a crew of scientific illustrators to extra facilitate understanding.

19) T1-weighted images may be performed after gadolinium administration in order to identify or confirm any possible lesions. The T1-dependent sequences characterised by short TR and TE have a high spatial resolution but lower contrast resolution. The white matter and the cortex have a similar intensity in adult patients, with the former slightly more intense. On the contrary, in infant and children patients, characterised by the ongoing developing process of the white matter (myelination), the cortex on T1-weighted images appears more intense in comparison with the white matter, and is still characterised by a high percentage of water.

Crispino 42 a b Fig. 12 Cranio-vertebral junction (a) AP radiography for the examination of the dens of the epistropheus. (b) CT coronal reconstruction with bone algorithm, high resolution: atlantooccipital joint (arrowhead), atlas-epistropheus joint (arrow). Atlas (ring), occipital condyle (circle), and odontoid process of the epistropheus (star) by the anterior arch, and of the spinous process, replaced by a tubercle (spinous tubercle). Instead, C1 features two lateral masses united by an anterior and a posterior vertebral arch.

Given the different length of the spinal cord and rachis, the more caudal sacrococcygeal roots need to vertically cross (as previously explained) the vertebral channel, in order to reach the corresponding pair of intervertebral foramina. On the way, the roots are freely floating into the cerebrospinal fluid of the dural sac and wrapped around the terminal filum (Fig. 9). Fig. 9 Coronal section of the spinal column, with the spinal nerves exiting from the neural foramina. It clearly shows the vertical course of the cauda equina.
