Highly Commended, Basic and Clinical Sciences Category, BMA Awards 2007! This best-selling atlas contains over 900 images and illustrations to help you learn and review the microstructure of human tissues. It starts with a section on general cell structure and replication. Basic tissue types are covered in the following section, and the third section presents the microstructures of each of the major body systems. The highest-quality color light micrographs and electron micrograph images are accompanied by concise text and captions which explain the appearance, function, and clinical significance of each image. The accompanying website lets you view all the images from the atlas with a "virtual microscope", allowing you to view the image at a variety of pre-set magnifications.
"This is an excellent book that should be used by everyone starting to learn histology. It is superbly simple and colourful with informative diagrams that are clearly labelled! This book makes histology enjoyable: much better than staring for hours on end down a microscope and not knowing what you are looking at! I like the way it divides the sections into the different body systems. The index is very useful. High-quality illustrations are provided in this book and the printing quality is excellent. I will happily recommend it to all science and medical students!"
