Description

Now in its 9th edition, this standard text offers a regional description of the human body that is very user-friendly, following logical dissection sequences. It provides students with all pertinent information on a region (such as the upper limb) in one chapter which includes its bones, muscles, joints, blood vessels, nerves, etc. in a compact and logical order. The book is fully illustrated and includes superb color plates. Among the complete textbooks of human anatomy, it is perhaps the most concise. For this edition the authors have included a new discussion of medical imaging techniques and have added many new diagnostic images. All their examples of imaging techniques are state-of-the-art quality and are related to the normal anatomy. They have also included a new section on terminology that will materially aid the student in understanding the common Greek and Latin prefixes, suffixes, and stems of anatomical terms. Finally, they have expanded the embryology section. As in all previous editions, refinements have been made throughout the book in both the text and the illustrations.show more
