Naidich, T P; Duvernoy, H M; Delman, B N; Sorensen, A G; Kollias, S S; Haacke, E M (2009). Duvernoy's atlas of the human brain stem and cerebellum: high-field MRI, surface anatomy, internal structure, vascularization and 3D sectional anatomy. Wien, OE: Springer.

Full text not available from this repository.


- Explains how to read advanced MRI easily by precise correlation of clinical 3T MRI with 2-4 mm thick sections of the brain
- Includes more than a thousand images displaying nuclear anatomy, fiber tractography, and vascularization of the brain stem and cerebellum in axial, coronal, and sagittal planes
- Presents organized series of diagrams and images to teach with a minimum of text
- Prepares you for coming advances in technology with 9.4 T images of the brain stem that rival light microscopy

Advanced MRI requires a sophisticated knowledge of anatomy. This volume gives you that knowledge by correlating the thin-section brain anatomy with corresponding clinical 3 T MR images in axial, coronal, and sagittal planes. You’ll quickly learn the anatomic bases for advanced MR imaging.

The international team of authors correlates advanced neuromelanin imaging, susceptibility-weighted imaging, and diffusion tensor tractography with clinical 3 and 4 T MRI. This illustrates the precise nuclear and fiber tract anatomy imaged by these techniques. Each region of the brain stem is then analyzed with 9.4 T MRI to show the anatomy of the medulla, pons, midbrain, and portions of the diencephalonin with an in-plane resolution comparable to myelin- and Nissl-stained light microscopy (40-60 microns).

The atlas is expertly designed as a teaching text, using carefully organized diagrams and images to teach with a minimum of text. You’ll learn how to read advanced MRI easily by precise correlation of clinical 3T MRI with 2-4 mm thick sections of the brain.

Written for: Radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, neuroscientists working in brain physiology and MR physicists
