Product description

"McMinn's Color Atlas of Human Anatomy" is one of the most successful atlases of human anatomy ever published - well over one million copies have been sold worldwide in more than 20 different languages. Incorporating an unrivalled collection of cadaveric, osteological and clinical images, McMinn's atlas maps out the structures of the human body and puts these structures into a clinical context. The fifth edition has been carefully revised to improve the photographic content and thereby make this outstanding resource even more useful. Fifty new dissection photographs of stunning clarity have been added to the book. Positive user feedback has prompted us to add more Clinical Tips - there are now 300 examples of these in the book to highlight the clinical correlates of the anatomic structures. The layout of every single page has been revised - and each chapter is colour-coded - to ensure maximum accessibility. More orientational diagrams and helpful line artworks have been added, extra surface anatomy and imaging have been included. The font size has been increased to ensure optimal readability. "McMinn's Color Atlas of Human Anatomy" remains an outstanding guide to the human body, ideal for exam preparation, self-study and as a primer for laboratory work. "McMinn's 5/E" will now include a free PC and Mac compatible CD developed by Primal Pictures with seven stunning anatomical animations in QuickTime: Hand, Shoulder, Knee, Foot, Hip, Spine and Head & Neck. The functionality will include the ability to: add and remove layers of skin, muscle, etc, from the animations; rotate animations completely for complete view from all angles; activate labels on/off to test recognition skills; and, export images to hard drive. This title is self testing - user selects an image and is presented with a multi-choice question on the highlighted label; there is also a separate quiz function.
