Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: George C. Enders, Ph.D.(University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This is a collection of high quality, full-color photographs of sections of embalmed human material with corresponding sectional radiological images, mainly CT images, with occasional MR images.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide photographs of the detailed anatomy that is increasingly visible in sectional radiological modalities of CT and MR as the quality of these radiological images continues to improve with newer technology.
Audience: This atlas is intended for radiologists, radiographers, anatomists, medical students, and postgraduate physicians in radiology, surgery, and medicine. The book is extremely useful for anyone learning how to interpret sectional radiological images.
Features: The heart of the book is an amazing series of full-color photographs of sections of embalmed cadavers. These sections offer superb detail and very high quality anatomical detail. The sections have numbers superimposed on the photographs that correspond to tables of identified structures. On the page opposite the photograph, the anatomical section is a rendition of how and where the section was made and a radiological example of a similar section. Generally, the quality of the anatomical sections and the updated radiological image is amazing. There also is a written notes section that often points out key anatomical structures or draws attention to key clinical points. The book has been very carefully laid out to be user friendly.
Assessment: This does an excellent job of providing beautiful, well labeled photographs of cross sections of embalmed human material in conjunction with classic radiological images. The third edition has added some of the latest in three-dimensional radiological reconstructions and added CT images with increased sensitivity and specificity. This book is a must for radiologists in training who are learning to interpret sectional images.
