Atlas of Clinical Gross Anatomy

Atlas of Clinical Gross Anatomy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Responding to current trends in anatomy curricula, this innovative new resource covers surface and radiological anatomy and cutaneous and muscular innervations as well as gross anatomy. Outstandingly realistic three-dimensional photographs and illustrations, plus a consistent chapter organization, summary tables, and other user-friendly features, enhance readers' mastery of essential information. It provides students with a unique resource for use before, during and after lab work, in preparation for examinations, and later on as a primer for clinical work.

  • LARGE PHOTOS, typically just one per page, taken in such a way as to be as intuitive as possible: so, no more squinting over a small photo or wondering where on the live body the dissection image might relate to;

  • DIGITAL PHOTOSHOP TECHNIQUES used on some of the dissections to color enhance structures and thereby combine the best features of a photo atlas and an artwork atlas; so, no more puzzling over structures that are hard to distinguish from the background of the dissection, a criticism often levelled at photographic atlases;

  • Simple, non-parallel LEADER LINE LABELLING as opposed to matching numbers to a key at the bottom of the page: so, no need to spend time trying to find a number on a dissection, then matching it to a key at the bottom of the page;

  • SPECIALLY COMMISSIONED DISSECTIONS, all done to a uniformly high standard, all using cadavers that have been freshly dissected and prepared using low alcohol fixative: so, each dissection will look fresh, not washed out, while remaining intuitively easy to understand and reproduce in the dissection lab;

  • NavigationalBODY REGION ICON on the top right hand corner of every double page spread: so, no more flicking back and forth trying to find a particular part of the body - no need even to consult the Contents pages or Index for navigation purposes;

  • RIGOROUSLY CONSISTENT, SUPERFICIAL TO DEEP chapter structure:

    * Introductory overview text

    * Clinical correlations text

    * Surface anatomy illustration

    * Superficial dissection(s)

    * Muscle review table

    * Intermediate dissection(s)

    * Deep dissection(s)

    * Osteology & X-Ray

    * Each chapter follows the same pattern throughout so the reader will always know exactly what coverage to expect, and in which order;

  • Concise REVIEW TEXT including BOLD FACE TERMS and MNEMONICS: so, the student will be able to obtain a quick overview of the structures to be illustrated on the following pages and clarify any questions s/he may have about anatomic relationships;

  • Short CLINICAL CORRELATIONS text that bridges the gap between gross anatomy and clinical practice thereby enlivening the descriptive anatomy and relating it to real-life practice;

  • Photographic material which reflects not just the lab setting but also the PHYSICAL EXAM and SURGICAL INTERVENTIONS that students will encounter later on in clinical practice;

  • SURFACE ANATOMY for every structure with MUSCLES, major BONES and CUTANEOUS INNERVATION ghosted on to the surface: so, the student can learn to relate surface landmarks to underlying structures of clinical relevance;

  • SUMMARY TABLES for origin, insertion, innervation, action and blood supply of muscles: this is ideal for self-testing and review purposes, students have raved about this feature;

  • CROSS SECTIONS, X-RAYS, MRIs, CTs, ANGIOGRAMS, ENDOSCOPIC and LAPARASCOPIC VIEWS at the end of each chapter, to help the student (a) learn to identify structures as they will later appear during clinical practice and then, (b) when s/he starts to see these diagnostic techniques during clinical rotation, recognise where on the body the image relates to.

Book News Annotation:

Unusual for the size and clarity of its images, including nearly 500 color photos of dissections, this atlas is clearly organized and thorough in its presentation. Published in an oversized format (9.75x12"), much of the volume is devoted to full-page color and b&w plates of the body parts, x-rays, osteology photos, and photos of the dissections. The volume contains as well a wealth of superb color drawings as part of the textual description for each body part. This is a paperback reprint of the 2005 cloth original edition.
