Sorry for the necrobump but how good a resource would you say Weir et al is?

That's kind of a general question. I haven't used it extensively but it looks like a good book. The question nowadays might be whether you are 1) looking for a resource to study, versus a resource to look things up as needed, and 2) whether you prefer scrolling through images versus looking at numbered pictures in a book.

Yeah, sorry that was vague. 

 

I have used it extensively in the past but I would like to know what the level of detail in that book corresponds to. (i.e. for someone who's familiar with the content of the book, how would you rate how much they know in terms of what is expected of a medical student or radiology resident.) 

 

Not sure if this makes a little more sense...

Ok, thanks for clarifying. I think it's a good resource for radiology residents to learn from and use as a reference. Anything anatomical is fair game come exam time, but in practice the areas that one doesn't see on a regular basis fall away with disuse, necessitating a quick refresher here and there as needed. Weir in its entirety would be above medical student level (two books I listed above, Applied Radiological Anatomy and Applied Radiological Anatomy for Medical Students, demonstrate this difference in detail).

Excellent. Thanks for the reply. I rather like Weir so I guess I'll continue trying to keep up with it as I find that, like you said, the stuff that doesn't come up everyday tends to be less easily recalled. If you say it's resident-level knowledge then I guess it would serve me well when I shadow and/or help out in the radiology department.
