Winner of the Richard Asher Prize for a First Medical Textbook for Students
Responding to current trends in anatomy curricula, this innovative new resource covers surface and radiological anatomy and cutaneous and muscular innervations as well as gross anatomy. Outstandingly realistic three-dimensional photographs and illustrations, plus a consistent chapter organization, summary tables, and other user-friendly features, enhance readers' mastery of essential information. It provides students with a unique resource for use before, during and after lab work, in preparation for examinations, and later on as a primer for clinical work.
Get a clear understanding of surface, gross, and radiologic anatomy with a resource that's great for use before, during, and after lab work, in preparation for examinations, and later on as a primer for clinical work.
Learn as intuitively as possible with large, full-page photos for effortless comprehension. No more confusion and peering at small, closely cropped pictures!
Easily distinguish highlighted structures from the background in each dissection with the aid of digitally color-enhanced images.
See structures the way they present in the anatomy lab with specially commissioned dissections, all done using freshly dissected cadavers prepared using low-alcohol fixative.
Bridge the gap between gross anatomy and clinical practice with clinical correlations throughout.
Master anatomy efficiently with one text covering all you need to know, from surface to radiologic anatomy, that's ideal for shortened anatomy courses.
Review key structures quickly thanks to detailed dissection headings and unique icon navigation.
Access the full text and self assessment questions at studentconsult.com.
Get a clear understanding of the human body through surface, gross and radiologic anatomy all in one place.
"This revised edition is appropriate for all students in the health sciences and distinguishes itself from other atlases with its excellent dissection photographs, overviews, and clinical correlations. Each chapter includes osteological and radiographic images associated with the area, which results in repetition of figures throughout the book. It would be better to combine the osteological and radiographic images at the end of the four major regional sections rather than repeating plates in multiple chapters. The chapter on the perineum (chapter 38), omitted a few structures. This is not equivalent to a comprehensive textbook, but it provides more information and clinical comments than other basic atlases. It offers photographs of actual structures rather than illustrations, which may appeal to some students." Erin Leslie, PhD(Midwestern University) Doody Review:80/100
