Since its first publication a decade ago, Atlas of Human Cross-Sectional Anatomy has become a standard reference for the interpretation of sectional images obtained with either computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. Now, this Third Edition has been substantially expanded and updated, offering entirely new sections on the major joints, as well as dozens of new images of the head obtained with the latest MR technology. This atlas presents detailed illustrations of anatomical cross-sections-- meticulously drawn and labeled-- that are matched with high-quality CT or MR images or actual photographs of cadaver sections.
This Color Atlas of Anatomy features outstanding full-color photographs of actual cadaver dissections, with accompanying schematic drawings and diagnostic images. The photographs depict anatomic structures more realistically than illustrations in traditional atlases and show students exactly what they will see in the dissection lab. Chapters are organized by region in order of a typical dissection. Each chapter presents structures both in a systemic manner from deep to surface, and in a regional manner. This edition has additional clinical imaging, including MRIs, CTs, and endoscopic techniques. New graphics include clinically relevant nerve and vessel varieties and antagonistic muscle functions. Many older images have been replaced with new, high-resolution images. Black-and-white dissection photographs have been replaced with color photography.
The gold standard of excellence for 25 years, Frank H. Netter, MD’s Atlas of Human Anatomy offers unsurpassed depictions of the human body in clear, brilliant detail - all from a clinician’s perspective. With its emphasis on anatomic relationships and clinically relevant views, Dr. Netter’s work provides a coherent, lasting visual vocabulary for understanding anatomy and how it applies to medicine today.
With this new reference, nonprofessionals can learn about anatomy from the same illustrations their physicians trained with in medical school. High-quality, anatomically correct color illustrations show the human body in detail in this beautifully produced volume. Concise supplementary text from Harvard Health Publications is scientifically accurate, and written so that it can be easily understood by general readers and students outside the medical profession. Detailed and labeled illustrations cover the primary systems of the human body, including: Musculoskeletal System Digestive System Respiratory System Brain and Nervous System Heart and Cardiovascular System Kidneys and Urinary System Sense Organs: Eyes, Ears, Nose, Mouth, and Sense of Touch Reproductive Organs This authoritative atlas of the human body makes a fine study aid for health science students. It is also a handy addition to the home reference bookshelf and deserves a place in every high school library. 186 color illustrations.
