Elsevier eBook on VitalSource - Access Card
With its unique clinical perspective and evidence-based coverage, Clinical Anatomy of the Spine, Spinal Cord, and ANS is the definitive reference for applying anatomic considerations to the evaluation and management of conditions of the spine and associated neural structures, including spinal impingement and subluxation. High-quality color illustrations and photographs, as well as abundant radiographs, CT, and MRI images, visually demonstrate specific anatomic and neuromusculoskeletal relationships and highlight structures that may be affected by manual and surgical spinal techniques or other diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
- A full chapter on surface anatomy includes tables for identifying vertebral levels of deeper anatomic structures, designed to assist with physical diagnosis and treatment of pathologies of the spine, as well as evaluation of MRI and CT scans.
- High-quality, full-color illustrations show fine anatomic detail.
- Red lines in the margins draw attention to items of clinical relevance, clearly relating anatomy to clinical care.
- Spinal dissection photographs, as well as MRIs and CTs, reinforce important anatomy concepts in a clinical context.
- Updated, evidence-based content ensures you have the information needed to provide safe, effective patient care.
- New section on fascia provides the latest information on this emerging topic.
- New illustrations, including line drawings, MRIs CTs, and x-rays, visually clarify key concepts.
