SUMMARY

The topography of the normal lymphatic pathways is comprehensively presented here in axial CT scans. Schematic figures corresponding to each scan make it easy to understand the topography. The main chapters cover the head and neck, the thorax, the abdomen and the pelvis. A short introduction to the lymphatic drainage system is also given. The additional description of the lymphatic nodes for every organ enables the reader to analyze CT scans systematically for enlarged lymph nodes. This atlas contains information vital for radiographers, who must determine how normal and pathologically enlarged lymph nodes are connected with certain lymph node groups in order to correctly stage tumors and their metastases. For radiotherapists, knowledge of the exact topography of a lymphatic drainage region will help to determine the best treatment volume
