If you are a resident doctor or consultant, chances are you will at some point be presented with a referral letter and a radiograph or imaging report by a patient asking that time-honored question: On such occasions, most students or resident doctors would perhaps wish that they had an atlas in their pocket. It is in the pockets of white coats that Drs. The authors have just released the fourth edition of a 3-volume set of computed tomography and magnetic resonance images of the body of which volumes 1 and 2 were provided for this review.
Volume 1 covers the Head and Neck region, contains illustrations and weighs in at pages while volume 2 contains illustrations in pages that deal with the Thorax, Abdomen and Pelvis. Special magnetic resonance imaging such as cholangiopancreatography and urography, as well as MR angiography and MR mammography also receive attention in the book. In keeping with current trends, both volumes are available as printed copies or else as digital download files.
Use of digital versions requires the proprietary application VitalSource BookShelf which is available free to download for desktop or tablets; in my hands, I found the application easy and straightforward enough to use on desktop and tablet.

However, the digital versions of the book are associated with an annual subscription. Moeller has done an extraordinary job of rendering the radiographic images in illustrated color diagrams.
Presentation of the images is systematic and uniform. Only normal anatomy is depicted in the images. Every plane is addressed: Each CT or MR slice is laid out on 2 pages. The first page shows the image, the plane and level at which the slice was obtained, and in many instances a minimally annotated miniature thumbnail illustration that demonstrates lymph nodes and organ segments.

The second page shows a larger fully annotated colored illustration that demonstrates and identifies all the anatomical structures depicted on the image. Muscles, bones, nerves, vessels and lymph nodes are all depicted in the illustrations and appropriately colored. Care was also taken in conforming to anatomical and clinical conventions for numbering cardiac vessels and mediastinal lymph nodes.
Anyone expecting to see traditional regional anatomy groupings of the material in the book may be a bit disappointed.
