Doody ReviewsReviewer: Kenneth A Bell, DVM, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is an update of an excellent atlas of radiographic images of human anatomy, with both conventional imaging and images using radiographic contrast material. The previous edition was published in 2006.
Purpose: It is intended as a readily accessible tool for reading, learning, and reference.
Audience: Although it appears to be directed at students, the book should be useful for practitioners as well. It also could be helpful in educating patients about to undergo radiographic procedures.
Features: The book covers a wide gamut of radiographic anatomy using keys to identify anatomic parts and it does a good job of outlining pertinent anatomy. There are images that use radiographic contrast material or simulated contrast material with drawings outlining anatomic structures. It is pocket-sized and information is readily available. It would be helpful to include CT and MRI images in future editions.
Assessment: This is a good introduction to radiographic anatomy for medical students and beginning radiology residents. It also should be helpful to general internists and other clinicians. The images are excellent, making a detailed understanding of the anatomy possible. This edition would be more comprehensive if CT, MRI, and ultrasound images were added.
