Designed to make learning more interesting and clinically meaningful, Netter's Concise Radiologic Anatomy, 2nd Edition matches radiologic images-from MR and ultrasound to CT and advanced imaging reconstructions-to the exquisite artwork of master medical illustrator Frank H. Netter, MD. As a companion to the bestselling Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy, this updated medical textbook begins with the anatomy and matches radiologic images to the anatomic images; the result is a concise, visual guide that shows how advanced diagnostic imaging is an amazing "dissection tool" for viewing human anatomy in the living patient!

  • Quickly review key information with a concise, user-friendly format that is organized and color-coded to be in-line with Netter’s Atlas of Human Anatomy, 6th Edition.
  • View direct, at-a-glance comparisons between idealized anatomic illustrations and real-life medicine with side-by-side radiology examples of normal anatomy and common variants with corresponding anatomy illustrations.
  • Improve upon your knowledge with a brief background in basic radiology, including reconstructions and a list of common abbreviations for the images presented.
  • Broaden your visual comprehension with the help of 30 brand-new ultrasound images.
  • Access the complete contents online at Student Consult.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The book includes an informative introduction section on radiological and ultrasound imaging techniques, a helpful and useful glossary, and an extensive index. The facing pages include a full-color Netter anatomic illustration with clinically relevant notes and a radiographic or ultrasound image with select anatomical descriptions. The clinically relevant notes are informative as are comments on normal anatomical variation. The book also includes access to the ebook version on the Student Consult website."-Erin Rae Leslie, PhD(Midwestern University) Doody Review: 4 stars

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Erin Rae Leslie, PhD (Midwestern University)
Description: The second edition of this radiological anatomy reference features new ultrasound images and text revisions. The first edition was published in 2009.
Purpose: The purpose is to match radiological images, including special views and advanced image reconstructions, to Dr. Frank H. Netter's anatomic drawings. The second edition improves upon the first with the addition of ultrasound images, which were incorporated in response to the increasing use of ultrasonography across many medical specialties. The revisions and corrections of various figure labels and legends were warranted to improve the clarity and accuracy of the book.
Audience: This is an appropriate, reliable reference for professionals in the health sciences and graduate-level health science students with a background in gross anatomy.
Features: The book includes an informative introduction section on radiological and ultrasound imaging techniques, a helpful and useful glossary, and an extensive index. The facing pages include a full-color Netter anatomic illustration with clinically relevant notes and a radiographic or ultrasound image with select anatomical descriptions. The clinically relevant notes are informative as are comments on normal anatomical variation. The book also includes access to the ebook version on the Student Consult website.
Assessment: This revised edition is appropriate for all in the health sciences and distinguishes itself from other books with the quality of the medical images, especially the striking number of rendered computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) images. However, the usefulness of the ultrasound images to nonexperts is debatable. The book would benefit from including orientation information with the images. In addition, there are still some typographical and figure labeling errors. This is most appropriate for use as a reference, as it is less comprehensive than other books incorporating Netter's illustrations and radiographic images, i.e., Netter's Introduction to Imaging, Cochard et al. (Elsevier, 2012).
