Written for the modern medical student and designed to accompany any current gross anatomy textbook, this brand-new pictorial handbook presented by Drs. Vilensky, Weber, Carmichael, and Sarosi lets you quickly identify pathologic correlates of gross anatomy. Abundant side-by-side high-quality radiography, MR, CT, and ultrasound images of normal and pathologic conditions help you quickly develop the skills you need to differentiate between what’s normal and what’s not. Discussions on the choice of imaging modality for various pathologies will help you select the right imaging procedure in many clinical situations, making this a handy resource in the clinical environment. But best of all, this visual approach to pathologic correlates will help you ace your courses, the USMLE and NBME final exams.

• Features side-by-side radiography, MR, CT, and ultrasound images that illustrate normal and abnormal anatomy, helping you quickly identify conditions while improving your diagnostic skills.

• Covers clinical conditions found in the main core of textbooks and radiologically depicts the clinical correlates that you’re exposed to daily, making it the ideal companion resource for any medical gross anatomy course.

• Uses concise, brief text that explains the condition, thus allowing the radiologic images to guide you to the differentiating factors.

• Incorporates discussions of imaging modality choices for a range of pathologies to help you understand how to select imaging procedures for various clinical situations in the clinical environment.

• Offers the visual guidance you need to study for and pass your exams.

Anonymous More than 1 year ago
As a recent medical school graduate, I applaud the new atlas, Medical Imaging of Normal and Pathologic Anatomy. Especially where I completed my medical education, there was very limited exposure to radiology during the course of our clinical years. This atlas, however, supplements required radiology rotations by providing quick references to standard radiologic procedures for specific clinical entities and can be used on any clinical rotation during medical school. In my opinion, the atlas would serve as excellent white coat pocket literature during the clinical years. Its design is sleek, making it lightweight and easily carried on a daily basis. The table of contents organizes the book by organ system, allowing for quick reference. In preparing for patient presentations, students are able to swiftly glance at a particular diagnostic reference and possibly earn bonus points for suggesting radiologic studies and findings for my patient's pathology. Though some references contain additional clinical information that may be pertinent to answering important "pimp" questions, this is not a consistent feature throughout the book. Therefore, this atlas should not replace a general medicine pocket text, but does very well to supplement with radiographic studies. In addition to portability and quick referencing, this atlas also had ample space for recording personal notes. I think that having this book during second year, while embarking upon systemic pathology and introduction to clinical medicine, would have made better use of the book by documenting key points on individual pages. Not only would this result in additional information at one's fingertips on the wards, but it would also provide a preclinical orientation to the atlas. Overall, this atlas serves as a guide to radiologic pathology and medicine through the medical school experience. Though beginner students should refer to the authors' prior publication, Netter's Concise Radiologic Anatomy, for basic anatomic locations on film, more advanced students can use this atlas to guide their way through the wards, whether on Orthopedic Surgery or General Medicine, and become a shining star along the way.
