This new text features a compilation of clinical cases that use a problem-based approach to illustrate the clinical significance of the subdisciplines of anatomy. Seven separate sections present anatomy in a regional format. Each section contains several clinical cases that walk you through various patients' presentation, history and physical examination information, laboratory and diagnostic test results, diagnosis, and treatment. A series of related questions and accompanying answers follow each clinical scenario, probing your understanding of the clinical issues relevant to that body region.
Features more than 80 clinical scenarios that promote interactive learning and build a foundation of knowledge for clinical practice.
Presents information in seven sections to correspond with a regional approach to anatomy: head and neck, back, thorax, pelvis and perineum, upper extremity, and lower extremity.
Covers the subdisciplines of anatomy including anatomic pathology · cell biology · embryology · gross anatomy · histology · neuroanatomy · and radiologic anatomy.
Includes references to Gray's Anatomy for Students, and follows a parallel organization, making it easy to use both books together.
