Back cover copy

Designed as a companion text for an atlas, this accessible and affordable work presents gross anatomy in an expanded outline format. Its conciseness and logical organization permit easy previewing of the subject matter before a lecture or laboratory as well as efficient learning and reviewing of the material before an examination. Although the text is succinct, its coverage of gross anatomy is comprehensive and written at a level of detail appropriate for the medical student. The book begins with an introduction establishing basic principles and terminology that will serve the student throughout the remainder of the text. Overviews of the nervous, muscular, skeletal, and vascular systems are also included in this introduction. The main body of the text is organized in the following sequence: The Back, The Thorax, The Abdomen, The Perineum and Pelvis, The Head and Neck, The Upper Limb, and The Lower Limb. Clinical notes that highlight anatomy relevant to current medical practice appear throughout these chapters. Since each regional anatomy chapter is complete in itself, the order in which they are studied is optional.show more
