This expanded new, full colour edition of the classic Applied Radiological Anatomy is an exhaustive yet practical imaging resource of every organ system using all diagnostic modalities. Every illustration has been replaced, providing the most accurate and up-to-date radiographic scans available. Features of the second edition: • Completely new radiographic images throughout, giving the best possible anatomic examples currently available • Both normal anatomy and normal variants shown • Numerous colour line illustrations of key anatomy to aid interpretation of scans • Concise text and numerous bullet-lists enhance the images and enable quick assimilation of key anatomic features • Every imaging modality included Edited and written by a team of radiologists with a wealth of diagnostic experience and teaching expertise, and lavishly illustrated with over 1,000 completely new, state-of-the-art images, Applied Radiological Anatomy, second edition, is an essential purchase for radiologists at any stage of their career.
Description: This is a comprehensive textbook of radiological anatomy, with an emphasis on cross sectional modalities.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to describe radiological anatomy and promote understanding of anatomy by means of imaging.
Audience: This book is primarily intended for radiology trainees preparing for qualifying exams. It would be suited for a wide audience, including medical students, technologists, and practitioners. The book is multiauthored, with all contributors based in the U.K. All the contributors have significant expertise in their areas.
Features: All areas of radiological anatomy and all modalities are covered in this text. The radiological images are predominately cross-sectional (CT, and to a lesser extent MRI and ultrasound). In addition, multiple line drawings are used to good effect. There is less emphasis on plain film than often seen in textbooks of this type. The editors attempt to cover a large amount of material in a relatively limited space. The scope of this book is impressive; however, there are some notable omissions, and the level of detail may not be adequate for the needs of more advanced practitioners. For example, in the heart chapter, there is very little attention given to cardiac MRI. In the chest chapter, regional nodal stations are illustrated with a single line drawing without correlation with CT or MRI. Overall the quality of the images is high, although some of the MRI images appear to have been performed on older scanners.
Assessment: This textbook is notable for the wide range of coverage. As such, it is an excellent basic book that would be most useful for medical students and junior radiology trainees. Given the relatively superficial coverage of many areas, it would be less useful for practitioners needing a detailed reference.
