The practice of medicine now requires physicians to understand and interpret digital images of body structure obtained by CT, MRI and ultrasound. Imaging technology has made major advances in increasing resolution and flexibility in visualization and three-dimensional reconstruction of the human body. The rapid expansion of digital data bases and systems has brought those images to the computers of doctors' offices. Interpretation of digital images requires detailed training in the anatomical sciences and is no longer limited to specialists. .
To address these issues, faculty of the Department of Anatomy and Pathology and the Department of Radiology have assembled a data base of images for study and review by medical students, faculty and health professionals. The images below have been made accessible by being placed in PowerPoint files. In many cases, images can be reviewed as a series in registration, permitting structures to be traced in successive sections.
This library is organized in three sections. The first section has PowerPoint files of radiographic images organized by body region. The second part contains complete labeled CT and MRI series. The third part has links to other websites that are particularly useful for review of Anatomy and Radiology. This library is in an ongoing process of assembly and organization. We welcome and appreciate any inputs and donations of images.

RECOMMENDED TEXTS FOR REVIEW
This excellent atlas has a number of radiographs, ultrasound, CT and MRI images presented as matched unlabeled and labeled pairs.
Title: Anatomy in Diagnostic Imaging
Authors: Peter Fleckenstein and Jorgen Tranum-Jensen
Publisher: W. B,. Saunders
Edition: Second Edition (in paperback)
ISBN: ISBN-10: 072169358X, ISBN-13: 978-0721693583
Many students have found this book to be excellent for review of Radiology. It also includes links to a very useful website (see below):
Title: Learning Radiology: Recognizing the Basics
Author: William Herring
Publisher: W. B,. Saunders
Edition: Second Edition (in paperback cost $55.95 at Amazon.com) released 2011
ISBN: ISBN-10: 0323074448, ISBN-13: 978-0323074445
Anatomy for Diagnostic Imaging (Third Edition) by Stephanie Ryan, Michelle McNicholas and Stephan Eustace. This is a very good text (available in Kindle) which is organized by system and correlates different types of images with anatomical structure they depict. It is an excellent review for students who are thinking of specializing in radiology but useful in other ways as well. The use of 3D reconstructions and Ultrasound is exceptional and there are clinical correlates ('radiology pearls') throughout.
OTHER RECOMMENDED TEXTS
Emergency Radiology : Case Studies by David T. Schwartz - A very good resource covering multiple topics from the plain film to abdominal X-rays to cervical spine and so on. Easy to read, lots of pictures, excellent learning resource for anyone going into radiology, emergency medicine, or any field of medicine that requires radiologic interpretation.
Felson's Principles of Chest Roentgenology Text with CD-ROM (Goodman, Felson's Principles of Chest Roentgenology) by Lawrence R. Goodman MD. The text that practically all medical students use between their third and fourth years of medical school in preparation for the radiology rotation/4rth year exam. This book is designed to teach the student a systematic and organized way to approach a chest film. The text is able to be completed over one weekend, but more importantly, the material sticks with the reader as the text is designed in a question and answer format and repetition is key. There are plenty of images. There is also a CD which contains even more images and discussion.
Squire's Fundamentals of Radiology: Sixth Edition (Hardcover) by Robert A. Novelline. Another excellent learning resource. Was designed to encompass topics from all of the fields in Radiology. Does include radiologic and anatomic correlates in the beginning).
Radiology Secrets by Scott Pretorius MD - This text is probably designed more for the student going into the field of radiology. However, the topics covered are extensive and written in a way that almost any student can understand. The image to text ratio is less but the images provided are effective. The book is written in the typical Secrets format of question and answer.
The Requisites (Series). The series provides a set of resources broken down by radiologic topic. It is best used as a compliment to other sources to further read about medical conditions and differential diagnosis.
Cranial Nerves: Anatomy, Pathology, Imaging by Devin K. Binder, D. Christian Sonne and Nancy J. Fischbein - This is a problem-based book that reviews the basic anatomy of the cranial nerves and correlates pathology with excellent images obtained by a variety of contemporary techniques. It is probably more a book for specialists but is extremely useful as a resource for modern brain imaging.
SECTION I: DOWNLOAD POWERPOINTS OF IMAGES BY BODY REGION
SECTION II: DOWNLOAD LABELED CT AND MRI SERIES
Note: Some files have Scout images indicating the plane of section for orientation on each PowerPoint slide. We recommend that you look at these files first if you are starting to review CT or MRI.
