Cross sectional imaging like CT and MRI is the mainstay of medical imaging. Radiologists interpreting these images need to be thorough in human anatomy. Because of the vastness of the subject, it is difficult to remember anatomy. This atlas is our attempt to provide the quick reference for imaging anatomy to the radiologist while reporting. It will also be helpful to the radiology residents and those who need to understand the human anatomy. CT and MR images of all body parts are given in all three planes. These images are accompanied by color diagrams for better understanding of the anatomy. The structures are labeled on these color images. We have also given CT and MRI angiographic images with labeling of all relevant branches. We hope that in the era of Internet and ‘Professor Google’, where everything is available, this atlas will still serve as a handy, convenient and quick reference for reporting radiologists.
