Overview


In spite of the advent of digital imaging modalities, the importance of interpreting conventional radiographs has not diminished. As with the first edition, this book presents radiographic anatomy as it appears in all commonly performed radiographic examinations. The visible anatomic structures are keyed to schematic drawings on the opposing page, thus aiding identification and interpretation. For the the new edition, many studies have been replaced with better quality radiographs and drawings.

Incl. standard radiographs for 170 radiographic examinations & their different projections.

Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: 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.

With no textual accompaniment, this pocket atlas is a strictly visual depiction of normal radiographic anatomy for 170 examinations. Each radiographic image, organized by anatomical structures, such as the skeletal system, chest and lung, and circulatory system, is accompanied by a labeled line drawing of the anatomy allowing for easy identification.
