Few Useful Imaging Atlases

DAVID, Online Atlas of Human Anatomy at http://www.cid.ch/DAVID/Mainmenu.html is an elegant site developed by JC Oberson MD, from the Diagnostic Imaging Center, Lausanne, Switzerland. The site serves as a ready reference on labeled cross section images of various anatomical areas, principally derived from MRI and CT. Besides this, the website accommodates impressive images, schematics and descriptive text.

3D Gallery Physiological Imaging at http://everest.radiology.uiowa.edu/gallery/mpegs.html is an impressive website on physiologic imaging from University of Iowa. The site delivers astonishing movies of various medical entities merging the disciplines of physiology, anatomy and radiology. The site has presentations and analysis of images for quantifying both structure and function. Understandably, the site highlights the frontier research in integrative physiology that hold the key to the final pathway towards the understanding of human as an integrated living organism. Some of the material include soft tissue of upper airway in obstructive sleep apnea, color coded images of adult human lungs, shaded surface display of the diaphragm of a patient with emphysema etc

Digital Anatomist Project is available from University of Washington at http://www9.biostr.washington.edu/da.html. The site is famous for hosting its Interactive Atlases on Brain, Neuroanatomy, Knee and Thoracic Viscera, in a fascinating and futuristic style. In particular, the Thoracic Viscera by DM Conley and C Rosse is an excellent item. Derived from cadaver sections, MRI scans, and computer reconstructions, there are illustrative features on 2-D and 3-D views of the brain, Eye Movements, Hypothalamus and Limbic System, Cortical Connections, 3-D views of thoracic organs and 2-D and 3-D views of the Knee

4. The Whole Brain Atlas at http://www.med.harvard.edu/AANLIB/home.html is an innovative educational website which specializes on information of the brain. The Atlas project is a product of the Departments of Radiology and Neurology at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, the Countway Library of Medicine, and the American Academy of Neurology. It is "an information resource for central nervous system imaging which integrates clinical information with magnetic resonance (MR), x-ray computed tomography (CT), and nuclear medicine images". Within the atlas, useful sections available include a Neuroimaging Primer, Top 100 Brain Structures, Normal aging and Vascular anatomy

5. Atlas of Brain Perfusion SPECT
from the Brigham & Women's Hospital, Boston is accessible at http://brighamrad.harvard.edu/education/online/BrainSPECT/BrSPECT.html . The coverage is comprehensive, with topics ranging from the normal brain anatomy, normal SPECT studies, procedures and protocols, Instrumentation and Radiopharmaceuticals. A large database of cases is also available in this atlas which contains nearly 1100 files totaling 50 MB of image data.

Atlas of Myocardial Perfusion SPECT is another spectacular online atlas from the Brigham & Women's Hospital, Boston. This atlas contains nearly about 1400 files and is accessible at http://brighamrad.harvard.edu/education/online/Cardiac/Contents.html . A list of educative slide shows is available at http://brighamrad.harvard.edu/education/online/Cardiac/SS/SS.html

7. Cardiac MRI Atlas
at http://www.scmr.org/edu/atlas/intro/index.html is principally an introduction to cardiac anatomy. Authored by a team of qualified personnel "the atlas has been designed as an introduction to cross-sectional cardiac anatomy ". It contains five separate cross-sectional views of the heart at end-diastole and nearly 750 labels. Within each view is a series of sequential images making a total of 98 anatomical images. The images are fundamentally in long axis, short axis, axial , coronal and sagittal views.

The Anatomy of the Couinaud Liver Segments is available as a tutorial at http://everest.radiology.uiowa.edu/nlm/app/livertoc/liver/liver.html . The illustrative tutorial developed at the University of Iowa deals with an array of material encompassing scan protocols, traditional surgical view with ultrasound correlation, definition of the Couinaud segments and movies and references in the literature

9. Obstetrics & Gynaecology Image Index is a large collection of images in relation to the speciality of Obstetrics & Gynaecology. This useful site, reachable at http://matweb.hcuge.ch//Selected_images/selected_medical_images.htm , has material on developmental and genetic diseases, ectopic pregnancy, hysterosalpingogram, obstetrical ultrasound etc

10. Interactive Knee at http://www.rad.upenn.edu/rundle/InteractiveKnee.html is a collection of graphical material, sourced from the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center, dealing with the Visible Human Knee and MR Knee Images.
