Netter's Concise Radiologic Anatomy
Designed to make learning more interesting and clinically meaningful, this new resource matches radiologic images—including advanced reconstructions—to the exquisite artwork of master medical illustrator Frank H. Netter, MD. In contrast to all other anatomic/radiologic atlases available, Netter's Concise Radiologic Anatomy begins with the anatomy and matches radiologic images to the anatomic images that are indelibly etched in the minds of those who refer to Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy on a daily basis. Concise text enables you to quickly and conveniently access the key anatomic and radiologic knowledge associated with the images. Organized and color-coded in the same manner as Netter’s Atlas of Human Anatomy, it’s a perfect companion guide to the Atlas—and a perfect guide for understanding the clinical context of normal anatomy.Table of Contents
- Presents side-by-side radiology examples of normal anatomy and common variants with corresponding anatomy illustrations, demonstrating the clinical relevance of the anatomy and providing direct, at-a-glance comparisons between idealized anatomic illustrations and real-life medicine.
- Includes a brief background in basic radiology including reconstructions and a list of common abbreviations to provide a foundation of knowledge for the images presented.
- Follows the same organization and color-coded format of Netter’s Atlas of Human Anatomy, for easy reference.
"Overall, I would recommend this book as a useful adjunct for the medical gross anatomy student, particularly those with an interest in radiology or surgery. While it does not attempt to replace the standard anatomic atlas, or supplant more definitive radiologic imaging references, the application of image reconstruction provides a novel way to transition from anatomic illustrations to the complexities of advancing radiologic image presentation." --Clinical Anatomy
"The authors state that their intention is to "expose" any student of anatomy" to radiologic images and to show how "modern radiology portrays human anatomy." They definitely accomplished this task. However, the handbook (as the authors refer to this atlas) does require one to have priori knowledge about human gross anatomy. This atlas is a worthwhile addition to anyone's collection of anatomical reference books and would probably be most effectively used by students in their c1erkships or residents when correlating radiologic images to the anatomy that they may have forgotten, but should remember!" --American Association of Anatomists
"The Netter diagrams are superb. The quality of the matching radiological images is also quite superb…fulfils its mission of correlating high quality radiological images with Netter anatomy drawings. It provides the reader with a modern high quality radiological atlas, which would be of interest to medical students, allied health professionals, surgical and radiology residents and indeed most hospital based practicing doctors." - M.J. Lee, Surgeon journal
"We read with interest the audit article of Mohamed et al.1 Th ey report 50 consecutive cases of intra-gastric balloon therapy (IBT) with complications in four cases. At our district general hospital, we have no experience of this technique, except the following. A 36-year-old woman presented six weeks after having IBT performed by a specialist in an eastern European city. She made an unremarkable recovery from the procedure and returned home to the UK."
