This popular atlas incorporates an unrivalled collection of cadaveric, osteological, and clinical images with surface anatomy models, interpretive drawings, orientational diagrams, and diagnostic images - emphasizing a well-rounded visual perspective of a real human body as seen by modern doctors. The 6th Edition offers new endoscopic images, 250 new dissection photos (including eight pages of new dissections on lymphatics), and 300 new clinical thumbnails. A bonus DVD - new to this edition - includes 1,000 additional photos not found in the text, as well as questions and answers that accompany each section from the book.
Presents 300 new clinical thumbnails - with relevant clinical notes and additional images on the DVD - that emphasize the clinical relevance of images depicted and demonstrate their clinical relevance.
Offers 250 new dissection photos that enhance the overall quality and scope of the images shown · eight pages of new dissections on lymphatics · 50 new illustrations reflecting the increasing use of diagnostic imaging in anatomy teaching · and 20 new endoscopic images to reinforce memorization of structures.
Features a bonus DVD with 1,000 clinical photos not found in the text...more information on clinical correlations...and questions and answers that accompany each section of the book.
Displays X-ray, MR, and CT images next to corresponding dissections, showing how to recognize anatomic structures in diagnostic images.
Presents interpretive drawings to help you differentiate between structures with a similar appearance (i.e., veins, arteries, and nerves).
Offers orientational diagrams that make it easier to relate the dissections in the text to real experiences in the lab.
Provides an unobstructed view of the artwork by using a numbered labeling system, which also allows you to self-test by covering up the key and identifying each numbered structure yourself.
REVIEWS OF PREVIOUS EDITION:
"It's hard to fault the concept or execution of this magnificent atlas" -- Journal of Audiovisual Media Medicine
"...high quality overall, buying a copy will most likely be a beneficial investment for the future." -- Professor Chris Kelly, Cambridge University, Murmur - Cambridge University Medical Society Magazine, UK
"...composed of large picture dissections of actual cadavers of which the print quality is excellent and gives you a realistic view of what you are going to be faced with. It includes surface locators so that it is clear which places were dissected on the live model. The numbered features on the pictures make it particularly user-friendly for revision, as do the different cross-sections of each dissection."
An added incentive to buy this atlas is the added inclusion of a CD-ROM which can make revision more interactive." -- First Year Medical Student, Rectum - Leeds University Student Medical Magazine, UK
"...exactly what I need for this portion of my course - clear concise pictures to complement anatomy sessions...don't think I can really fault the book." -- Medical Student, University of Bristol, UK
BMA Book Awards 2008 - Highly Commended
"This book is easy-to-read and up-to-date with excellent pictures of anatomy. The clinical correlations are of the highest quality. This is an excellent book with good clinical cross references and the new DVD make this a must for all students of medicine, surgery and allied fields."
