Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Archana Laroia, MD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: (Sandeep Laroia, MD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics) , collaborated on this review.)

Medical students often struggle with translating their knowledge of anatomy into cross-sectional imaging. This book pairs images of normal and abnormal anatomy of the same area of the body using plain x-ray, CT, MRI, and ultrasound.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a visual experience so that the images become meaningful to medical practitioners. This is a worthy goal and the authors have succeeded in jumpstarting the translation of medical imaging.
Audience: Although this book targets medical students, it would be useful for allied health professionals as well.
Features: Almost every page has two or more sharp, crisp images on good quality, glossy paper. All images are labeled in red, making it easy to follow, and are accompanied by boxed brief descriptions and references to Gray's Anatomy for Students , 2nd edition, Drake et al. (Elsevier, 2010) and McMinn's Clinical Atlas of Human Anatomy , 6th edition, Abrahams, et al. (Elsevier, 2008). The layout leaves space for additional note-taking. Separate chapters cover all major organ systems and the book follows an intuitive, head-to-toe approach. While this book is strongly recommended for medical students and other allied health professionals, the labeling could be more extensive, so all important landmarks on an image are covered, not just the basics. Some of the images certainly can use more labeling; the mammogram on page 40 has no labeling, and sagittal spine reconstructions on page 110 and 111 can use more labels. The vascular system could have been a separate chapter, although some of the entities of this system are covered with other organ systems. The 11-page index is very useful. The book is easy to carry for quick reference, fitting in a white coat pocket.
Assessment: This is a high quality, useful pocket reference for medical students. There are other applied anatomy books, such as Applied Radiological Anatomy for Medical Students , Butler et al. (Cambridge University Press, 2007) , and Essential Medical Imaging , Gibson and Mitchell (Cambridge University Press, 2009). However, combining normal and abnormal anatomy on the same page leads to a deeper understanding and fulfills the targeted audience's requirements superbly.

From the Publisher
"As a non-clinician, I found this text to be interesting and fascinating. In fact, I could not put it down. Visuals of the human body that depicted the beauty of normal along with the insidiousness of disease processes and events served to enhance my knowledge. This book would be a great resource for medical students, alternative health professionals who deal with imaging, and for students of anatomy and pathology." -Karen M. Gana, PhD, American Anatomical Association Newsletter, September 2010

    Great radiologic pocket reference

    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.
