Overview

Praise for this book:

Impressive...remarkably effective.—Journal of the American Medical Association

[Five stars]

A brilliant masterpiece, filled with anatomical illustrations of great accuracy, appropriately labeled and aesthetically appealing.—Doody's Review

Atlas of Anatomy contains everything students need to successfully tackle the daunting challenges of anatomy. Complete with exquisite, full-color illustrations by award-winning artists Markus Voll and Karl Wesker, the atlas is organized to lead students step-by-step through each region of the body. Each region opens with the foundational skeletal framework. The subsequent chapters build upon this foundation, adding the muscles, then organs, then vessels, then nerves, and finally presenting topographic anatomy for a comprehensive view. Each unit closes with surface anatomy accompanied by questions that ask the reader to apply knowledge learned for the real-life physical examination of patients.

Features:

  • 2,200 full-color illustrations of unsurpassed quality
  • Brief introductory texts that provide an accessible entry point when a new topic is presented
  • Clinical correlates and images, including radiographs, MRIs, CT scans, and endoscopic views
  • Muscle Fact pages that organize the essentials, including origin, insertion, and innervation — ideal for memorization, reference, and review
  • Navigators that orient the reader with location and plane of dissection
  • A scratch-off code provides access to WinkingSkull.com PLUS, an interactive online study aid, featuring over 600 full-color anatomy illustrations and radiographs, labels-on, labels-off functionality, and timed self-tests

This atlas provides everything students need in just the right format, making the mastery of human anatomy eminently achievable.

From the Publisher
The 2200 full-color illustrations are...impressive. The artists, with their sensitive rendering of light and shadow, have achieved a remarkably effective 3-dimensional representation of structures...without sacrificing clarity. Throughout, extensive tables and charts make it easy to find factual information..It seems likely that the trend away from buying or even using books will continue as online resources become more prevalent...However the beauty of the images in Thieme's Atlas of Anatomy, and the clarity of the concise tables and textual notes, may help stem the ride and rekindle student interest in the use of books.—Journal of the American Medical Association[Five stars] A brilliant masterpiece, filled with anatomical illustrations of great accuracy, appropriately labeled...aesthetically appealing...flows logically and systematically through the regions of the body...indispensable...for medical students...and medical residents in surgical specialties.—Doody's ReviewThe illustrations by Voll and Wesker are exquisite...The shading and color used are extremely detiled and visually pleasing. Illustration labeling is easy to read. Atlas of Anatomy is a very useful tool for the medical student. It provides complete and informative coverage of the subject matter with the highest quality artwork available in any atlas...Atlas of Anatomy serves as an excellent source of high-yield information and is highly recommended.—JAOAHave you ever pulled out an atlas of anatomy to show a patient a tendon or muscle that is a source of his symptoms? Or have you referred back to your anatomy text from school to remind yourself of the relationship between structures? Are you a student taking anatomy? Then the newly published book from Thieme, Atlas of Anatomy, and its interactive website, www.winkingskull.com, should be on your reference shelf and bookmarked on your computer. The drawings appear to leap off the page in three rather than two dimensions... I was blown away by the website... It is engagingly interactive...highly recommend[ed].—ADVANCE for Physical Therapists and PT AssistantsOf the several atlases that are available to the student, the [atlas] is one of the most useful and complete. Its 623 pages not only cover the gross anatomy of the human body, but also have extensive illustrations encompassing the peripheral innervation, lymphatics, arterial supply, and venous drainage of the various regions... Many radiographic images are included when appropriate to integrate the anatomy with the radiology. In addition, surface anatomy illustrations and clinical correlation boxes are generously sprinkled throughout the atlas to integrate this information with future clinical experiences. The completeness of this Atlas along with its presentation, clarity of illustrations, and content brings everything together for the student. This Atlas is indeed a powerful learning tool for students. It will be utilitzed by the students in gross anatomy and neuroanatomy, and by the clerks in surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, radiology, and neurology. Finally, this is an atlas that they will return to as first-year residents when they review specific regions of the human body for their training.—Clinical AnatomyThe illustrations have exceptional clarity, which makes them visually pleasing and engaging... Comprehensive...Gilroy, MacPherson, and Ross have achieved their goal of creating a single-volume atlas of anatomy...The atlas employs excellent organizational strategies; it is filled with excellent illustrations, diagrams, and clinical notes.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Valeria A. Forlizzi, (Facultad de Medicina - UBA)
Description: This atlas is a brilliant masterpiece, filled with anatomical illustrations of great accuracy, appropriately labeled and aesthetically appealing. It flows logically and systematically through the regions of the body: back, thorax, abdomen and pelvis, upper and lower extremities, head and neck, and neuroanatomy.
Purpose: This is intended to provide a foundation for the study of anatomy for medical and other health professions students completing a human anatomy course with dissection. It also is valuable for established health professionals who wish to review the relationship of anatomical structures or need to show a student or a patient a key anatomical relationship.
Audience: This atlas is indispensable not only for medical students enrolled in a beginning course in anatomy and medical residents in surgical specialties, but also for health professions practitioners, when in need of reviewing forgotten anatomical concepts.
Features: Regional anatomy and dissection approaches are discussed throughout the book, in different chapters. Limits and contents of the respective regions are described in summary form in detailed tables and very clear schematic diagrams. However, landmarks could be added and marked, to help students learn important surface anatomical relationships that are crucial for developing appropriate physical exam skills.
Assessment: This is a very useful atlas, especially considering it is a single comprehensive volume and not very expensive, when compared with other atlases such as the multivolume Thieme Atlas of Anatomy, Schuenke et al. (Thieme International, 2007) and the more expensive Atlas of Human Anatomy, 4th edition, Netter (Elsevier, 2006).

    Best Atlas for Medical Students

    As a Professor of Anatomy and Course Director of a Clinical Human Anatomy Course for medical students, I have reviewed numerous atlases. I believe that this atlas is the best available because of the quality and accuracy of the drawings. While some other Human Anatomy Atlases are cartoonish by virtue of the over-embellishment of the anatomy, this atlas depicts anatomy as accurately as it can be depicted in drawings. Only a atlas of actual dissection photographs can depict anatomy more accurately.

    This is an extremely helpful anatomy atlas. I love the layout, and how it separates the bones, muscles, etc. accordingly. This is a great asset to anyone studying the human body.

    An excellent supplemental or primary review resource for the health care student or professional

    The overall organization, page layout, and image quality are superb. Frequent clinical correlates connect the structure with conditions encountered in the clinical setting.
