Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is an atlas of anatomic drawings of the torso with representative imaging modalities.
Purpose: "An atlas of normal anatomy and some common pathologic conditions is provided. "
Audience: Trainees in surgery and radiology are an appropriate audience for this work, which comes from radiologists and medical illustrators based in the United States.
Features: Developmental features of the chest and abdomen are discussed first, followed by a review of individual organ, vascular and neurologic anatomy. The pelvis is presented beginning with its bony confines followed by pelvic contents including vascular, female and male organs. Each major chapter begins with a phrase outline highlighting imaging modalities and key anatomic points. Each anatomic region is introduced with beautiful color drawings followed by imaging modalities, which optimally depict the anatomic region. Axial CT, CT reconstruction, ultrasound, MRI, and plain radiographs are presented. Occasional plain angiography and gastrointestinal contrast studies are also employed. Legends on the illustrations review key anatomic concepts and radiographs are marked to clearly indicate key findings. The table of contents divides content into anatomic areas while the index of 50 pages provides excellent access to drawings and images. As an atlas, detailed discussions of imaging techniques, selection of images, and limitations of imaging strategies are not provided.
Assessment: This beautiful hardcover book is a unique contribution that screams out for accompanying electronic access to make its illustrations available for a teaching setting. The superb medical illustrations and CT reconstructions are the technical highlight of this work. Unfortunately, many of the plain radiograph, axial CT, and MR images have insufficient contrast to replicate data from contemporary technology. I like the concept of this book, but having the images only in print limits utility.
