The caption drawings make the atlas
on August 7, 2002
This is a great resource for residents. A major problem with most atlases is that pictures of subtle findings are not properly annotated, so that the reader may miss the actual focus of the picture.
This atlas fixes the problem rather ingeniously: most pictures have an accompanying drawing that highlights and delineates each important finding and detail seen in the picture. Using these drawings, the reader can learn to identify these subtle but important features.
The use of such drawing makes so much sense that one wonders why more atlases do not employ the method.
I love the atlas for the great pictures, accompanying drawings, and good explanations.
