An adult skeleton consists of 206 bones. See each and every one of them like never before in this stunning full-color poster package. In this unrivaled collection, three life-sized photographic plates reveal the full majesty of the human skeleton, displayed from side, front, and posterior views. Accompanying these 6-foot-long plates are 20 smaller plates displaying individual bones from multiple anatomical regions. Meticulously labeled and captured in high-resolution photography, this superb set gives you the richest possible exposure to the human skeleton short of the real thing.
Contains new photos of the jaw for improved clarity and views.
Includes a new CD-ROM containing all of the images from the posters plus 100 additional clinical photos, clinical presentations, and radiographs that depict common problems and fractures of specific parts of the skeleton.
Uses life-sized, high-resolution photographic plates rather than undersized illustrations for an authentic learning experience.

Includes additional bone photos, separated into anatomical regions, promoting a thorough understanding of the skeletal system.
