This concise, photographic atlas of human gross anatomy includes almost 300 color photographs, 70 color line drawings and 70 black & white photos. The contents are aimed at the relatively shorter and less detailed anatomy courses now being taught. It does not set out to provide the comprehensive and detailed coverage of the existing atlases, which can be either too complex or provide unnecessary depth for some students. Photographs of anatomical dissections are accompanied by brief explanatory captions. The book is organised on a body region basis and each chapter begins with a one-page overview that 'sets the scene' for the illustrations that follow, i.e. it orientates the student and permits greater conceptual understanding of the chapter content.
This is a brand new concise, photographic atlas of human gross anatomy, compiled by a highly regarded, active teacher of anatomy to medical and allied health students in Sheffield.
Clearly labelled dissection photographs serve to highlight the most important structures of the body as they will be seen in the anatomy lab. Surface and radiological anatomy images are also included to show how structures and surface landmarks present in clinical practice. Brief, accompanying text explains the core descriptive anatomy and a stethoscope icon flags the text which is of clinical or functional relevance.
Organised on a body region basis, this atlas can be used as a primer for practical anatomy classes, as an accessible guide to the subject during anatomy courses and as a revision aid prior to exams. It is ideal for medical students - particularly for those on the less detailed anatomy courses now being taught - and is also highly suitable for nursing and allied health students (in Occupational Therapy, Radiography and Manual Therapy, for example).
- Clear dissection photographs show students the anatomical structures they will see in the lab
- Concise running text 'sets the scene' and explains inter-relationships of structures
- Variety of images used - gross, radiological and surface anatomy - reflect the way in which anatomy is now taught and tested
