The Sixth Edition continues the tradition of this great book by applying anatomic knowledge to state-of-the-art imaging. Chapters have been reorganized to help the reader better interpret imaging studies by clearly demonstrating what to expect and where to look for disease spread from each individual organ. Up-to-date chapters written by top experts explore the dynamic concept, explain its embryologic and anatomic basis, and classify the mechanisms of disease progression. The latest imaging modalities, including CT, MRI, ultrasound, and PET, are incorporated throughout to illustrate these fundamental concepts.
Featured in this Edition:
Emphasis on the anatomic mechanisms of disease spread.
Images displayed in various formats, including 3-D and multiplanar.
State-of-the-art graphic illustrations that explain anatomic changes and make anatomic findings easy to understand.
New case study section that facilitates comprehension and the application of topics presented.

"This is a major update of a classic book on the spread of disease within the abdominal cavity. ... Written for radiologists, particularly those in training or in the beginning years of practice, the book covers core knowledge that should be learned at that level. Surgeons also may enjoy reviewing this material for the imaging correlation. ... This classic book on radiology of the abdomen does a wonderful job ... . I highly recommend this book for residents in training." (Charles C. Matthews, Doody's Review Service, June, 2011)
"Meyers' Dynamic Radiology of the Abdomen: Normal and Pathologic Anatomy is the sixth edition of a book aimed at the practicing abdominal radiologist. ... The text is clear and concise and the content well organized, with many high-quality images. ... beautifully illustrating the normal and pathologic anatomy of the extraperitoneal spaces, clearly fulfilling its intended purposes. We highly recommend it as a valuable addition to the bookshelf of the practicing abdominal radiologist or radiology resident in training." (Helen Stunell and Alison Harris, Radiology, Vol. 261 (3), December, 2011)
"The aim of this work was to introduce a systematic application of anatomic and dynamic principles to the practical understanding and diagnosis of intraabdominal diseases. ... This sixth edition was obviously written in the same spirit as its predecessors. ... Richly illustrated, well-presented and updated, this book is undoubtedly a state-of-the-art work. It will be of greatest interest for radiologists as well as other physicians dealing with abdominal pathology, even and certainly if they do not have to live alone on a desert island." (B. Grignon, Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy, Vol. 33, 2011)
