Preface

I began this atlas in Pittsburgh in 1988 with cadaver dissections, which I preserved in formalin tanks. In 1992, I began some simple ultrasound studies of the brachial plexus. By 1997, I was plastinating additional cadaver dis sections at the University of Rochester and making simple line drawings of my dissections. Jooyeon Ha, Sara Bednarz, and Chris Bickel joined me from the departments of animation and medical illustration at Rochester Institute of Technology. Together, we created professional illustrations, animations, and three-dimensional virtual reality reconstructions. In 2002, I began ultrasound-guided nerve blocks. In 2006, I returned to Pittsburgh and was joined by Nizar Moayeri, who, along with Gerbrand Groen (University of Utrecht), had created a large archive of microanatomical dissections of the brachial, thoracic, and lumbar plexuses. In Pittsburgh, Jaques Chelly assigned some outstanding fellows (Alon Ben Ari, Melina Moreno, and David Burns) to work with me on new techniques in ultrasound-guided blocks. At the same time, Dr. Chelly introduced me to the editors at LWW and the formal foundation for this atlas was begun. C. C. Li, James Chien, Steven Damelin, and Jungha An contributed new ideas in image processing. Phil Cory and Stuart Grant added new ideas in radiofrequency imaging and ultrasound. Assad Oberei, Robert Borcala, and Yun Jing added new insights into needle design. Steve Orebaugh wrote many of the chapters. Other collaborators from around the world graciously joined us. Steven Breneman and Meg Stanbury edited many of the chapters and images. All together, my colleagues and I have spent more than 8,000 hours working on these dissections, drawings, animations, and researches. The Fulbright Foundation, the National Institute of Health, the National Science Foundation, Sleeping Gorilla, the University of Pittsburgh, SonoSite, B Braun, Life Tech, and the Manipulative Therapy Foundation of Holland contributed more than 1 million dollars in support. I hope you enjoy the atlas…
