1. Imaging Atlas of Human Anatomy, 4th Edition by Weir, Abraham, Spratt, Salkowski
A very comprehensive book which will help any radiology registrars pass their first anatomy exam. The depth is exactly what you need for the exam. The layout is clear with good and non-intrusive labelling.
This book is brilliant for learning cross-sectional imaging anatomy. It has a radiological image on half the screen with an illustration which matches the imaging on the other half. It allows you to learn and appreciate the interactions between each anatomical structure. This definitely accelerated my key understanding of cross sectional CT and MRI of the chest, abdomen & pelvis. A book I would highly recommend to any junior radiology registrars.

1. IMAIOS - e-Anatomy: radiologic anatomy atlas of the human $74.99 / year
One of the best online anatomy demonstrating tool. It allows you to navigate through radiological images with labels throughout the scroll. With the use of illustrations, you would begin to appreciate the 3D anatomical structures. Occasionally, it does not have accurate labels and overlaps with others. There are other free similar online websites which also allow you to scroll and learn anatomy but IMAIOS allows you to interact with the images further by removing layers e.g. muscles, vessels etc.
You can get a discount if you were to pay for a group subscription.
A large collection of images with various modalities are available on this website. There are currently over 1500 questions and growing. The unique selling point of this anatomy quizzing website is that there is nothing similar at present. This closely follows the FRCR anatomy exam style with a single arrow per image. There is an option of a trial subscription of 30 mins in order to gain a better appreciation for the way the website functions. The format is clear with images of good quality and allows you to have a degree of flexibility with your answers. The level of difficulty is similar to the expected standard from the FRCR anatomy exam. This website is the brainchild of Dr Garry Pettet, the radiologist who also wrote an FRCR Physics revision book.
