   Basic Radiography and Radiology Atlases Top

1. Radiographic Guide at is an atlas of routine radiographic procedures, offering material for radiology students as well as radiology professionals. The educative material offered here are on chest x-ray, barium enema, spine, and joints like hip, elbow, and foot. Besides, there are sections on techniques covering specialized areas like facial bones, orbits, sacrum, and sinuses. Furthermore, radiographic techniques for assessment of bone age and bone length are also available. A useful index to other topics is available at

2. Radiology Positioning Atlas at is an atlas illustrating the details of positioning during radiography of the human body. It is divided into anatomical areas like upper and lower extremities, pelvis, thorax, abdomen, vertebral spine, skull, facial bones, and orbits. For example, the section on lower extremities has radiographs of the knee - anteroposterior (AP), rolled lateral, horizontal ray lateral, skyline (tangential, axial, sunrise), intercondylar AP axial, posteroanterior (PA) axial (Camp-Coventry), PA axial (Holmblad), oblique (lateral or medial rotation), AP bilateral weight bearing, and PA bilateral weight bearing (Rosenbergs). A related portal on surface anatomy useful in positioning purposes is available at

3. Radiologic Anatomy is a site developed by Anthony L. Alcantara, and Huan Nguyen. It is available from It offers illustrative data on brain, upper abdomen, thorax, pelvis and upper thigh, and skull base.

4. Interactive Radiology Atlas is sourced from SUNY Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn, NY, and available at Offered in this atlas are sections covered by regions, e.g., head and neck, thorax, upper limb, abdomen, pelvis, and lower limb.

5. Atlas of Radiological Images v.1 is sourced from the General University Hospital and 1st Faculty of Medicine of Charles University in Prague and is available at The sections can be browsed under the following headings: Organ, Modality, Skill, and Random. Besides, there are links to popular images, newest images, and radiology case of the day.

6. Radiology Atlas offers illustrative images from the Department of Neurobiology and Developmental Sciences, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Available at, the material comprises of several sections that cover topics like thorax, abdomen, pelvis and perineum, upper limb, lower limb, and head and neck. Each topic has images sourced from radiographs, contrast studies, arteriograms, CT scans, MRI images, and hysterosalpingograms.

7. Radiology Anatomy Atlas is a free program, available for both Macintosh; and Windows; . It allows viewing of labeled images of human anatomy. There are two broad sections available in the atlas, namely Radiology Anatomy Atlas and Radiologic Human Anatomy Atlas. The atlas can be browsed at
