Product description

This title is an indispensable dip-in revision aid. "Instant Anatomy" is quite different from other anatomy books available. It presents the fundamental anatomical information needed for clinical practice in an easily accessible dip-in format. Each topic is concisely displayed in a double-page spread to provide a unique anatomical approach across systems. This logical and intuitive approach emphasizes the anatomical relationships needed for cross sectional scanning and computer generated reconstructional imaging. It allows structures such as blood vessels and nerves to be seen in their entirety instead of regionally as they are so often described in standard textbooks. This edition has been updated and expanded to include more on the foramina chapter. It is ideal for junior doctors and MRCP/MRCS candidates, medical students on clinical attachments, nurses and other allied health professionals.
