  • Key Features

    Features side-by-side radiography, MR, CT, and ultrasound images that illustrate normal and abnormal anatomy, helping you quickly identify conditions while improving your diagnostic skills.

    Covers clinical conditions found in the main core of textbooks and radiologically depicts the clinical correlates that you’re exposed to daily, making it the ideal companion resource for any medical gross anatomy course.

    Uses concise, brief text that explains the condition, thus allowing the radiologic images to guide you to the differentiating factors.

    Incorporates discussions of imaging modality choices for a range of pathologies to help you understand how to select imaging procedures for various clinical situations in the clinical environment.

    Offers the visual guidance you need to study for and pass your exams.
