Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael F. Dauzvardis, PhD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This work contains original pen and ink drawings depicting the cross-sectional anatomy of the human body. The drawings are modeled after plastic embedded cadaver sections.
Purpose: With the ever-increasing use of MRI and CT technology, a knowledge of 3-dimensional anatomy is a must for today's medical diagnostician. This book seeks to introduce the reader to cross-sectional and 3-dimensional human anatomy. The detailed drawings, with their self-assessment labeling system, more than fulfill the worthy objectives.
Audience: This book is useful for the medical student, resident, and practitioner. Although most applicable to the field of radiology, surgeons should also include this work in their libraries. The author, with his doctorate in anatomy and his artistic talents, is more than qualified to expound on cross-sectional anatomy.
Features: Because this book is an anatomical atlas, it relies almost solely on original artwork and is thus properly illustrated. References are current and pertinent. The book, a paperback, is attractive and of a manageable size. Illustrations are labeled with a numerical system that is cross-referenced to a list of the proper anatomical terms. This allows for self-quizzing about the various body regions. Original cartoon works peppered throughout the book provide not only comic relief but fascinating insight into the origin of anatomical nomenclature.
Assessment: This book should be a fixture in every medical library and bookstore. The author's simplistic approach to cross-sectional anatomy affords a vehicle for medical student self-study and a ready reference for the practicing clinician. By coupling detailed original drawings with a humorous approach toward the history of anatomical nomenclature, Poritsky has produced a winner in the field of cross-sectional anatomy.
