Clinically Oriented Anatomy, Fifth Edition
provides first-year medical and allied health students with the clinically oriented anatomical information that they need in study and practice. This book is renowned for its comprehensive coverage of anatomy, presented as it relates to the practice of medicine, dentistry, and physical therapy. This latest edition is fully updated with new content and additional features, including new surface anatomy and updated diagnostic images, new "Bottom Line" summaries that reinforce important concepts, and new clinical "Blue" boxes.
Two bound-in CD-ROMs contain interactive case studies, USMLE-style review questions, and layered, rotatable anatomical illustrations generated from three-dimensional models of MRI images.
Doody's Review Service -- "This is the ideal book to accompany human cadaver dissections.... The book has extensive clinically relevant information and is so well organized that it should provide support for practicing healthcare professionals throughout their career. This edition has an expanded introductory chapter on systemic anatomy, with significantly improved coverage of the autonomic nervous system, a complicated area that new students often have particular difficulty with. The use of clinical "Blue Boxes" has expanded with descriptions of pathology, injuries, and clinical procedures that are relevant to the anatomy being discussed. These blue boxes are one of the longtime highlights and strengths of the book which have been increased in number and strengthened with illustrations. Summaries called the "Bottom Line" have been added that at times are useful take home messages, though occasionally the sentences end up being lengthy and a bit run-on. Students will most likely find these useful when reviewing material prior to exams. The number of illustrations now rivals some anatomy atlases. Many of the illustrations will be very useful to both readers and teachers because they efficiently drive home key points or relationships that are clinically relevant. Some embryology has been added, which is very useful. With this fifth edition, Clinically Oriented Anatomy, the gold standard North American human anatomy text has risen substantially in value. The authors are to be congratulated on this superb anatomical text that is ideally suited to learning and teaching human anatomy for healthcare providers." Weighted Numerical Score: 98 - 5 Stars
