  • 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 like Netter (see p.9 of the sample chapter): 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;
  • ORIENTATION INSERTS when the dissection photo is an extreme close-up: so, students won"t be baffled anymore by close-ups they cannot understand;
  • 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;
  • Navigational BODY 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;
  • o Introductory overview text
    o Clinical correlations text
    o Surface anatomy illustration
    o Superficial dissection(s)
    o Muscle review table
    o Intermediate dissection(s)
    o Deep dissection(s)
    o Osteology

  • 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;
  • X-RAYS, MRIs, CTs, ANGIOGRAMS and ENDOSCOPIC 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.
  • Atlas of Clinical Gross Anatomy uses over 500 incredibly well-executed and superb dissection photos and illustrations to guide you through all the key structures you'll need to learn in your gross anatomy course. This medical textbook helps you master essential surface, gross, and radiologic anatomy concepts through high-quality photos, digital enhancements, and concise text introductions throughout.

    Key Features
    • Get a clear understanding of surface, gross, and radiologic anatomy with a resource that's great for use before, during, and after lab work, in preparation for examinations, and later on as a primer for clinical work.
    • Learn as intuitively as possible with large, full-page photos for effortless comprehension. No more confusion and peering at small, closely cropped pictures!
    • Easily distinguish highlighted structures from the background in each dissection with the aid of digitally color-enhanced images.
    • See structures the way they present in the anatomy lab with specially commissioned dissections, all done using freshly dissected cadavers prepared using low-alcohol fixative.
    • Bridge the gap between gross anatomy and clinical practice with clinical correlations throughout.

    Published Reviews "This revised edition is appropriate for all students in the health sciences and distinguishes itself from other atlases with its excellent dissection photographs, overviews, and clinical correlations. Each chapter includes osteological and radiographic images associated with the area, which results in repetition of figures throughout the book. It would be better to combine the osteological and radiographic images at the end of the four major regional sections rather than repeating plates in multiple chapters. The chapter on the perineum (chapter 38), omitted a few structures. This is not equivalent to a comprehensive textbook, but it provides more information and clinical comments than other basic atlases. It offers photographs of actual structures rather than illustrations, which may appeal to some students." Erin Leslie, PhD(Midwestern University) Doody Review:80/100
