Atlas of Clinical Gross Anatomy uses over 500 incredibly well-executed and superb dissection photos and illustrations to guide you through all the key structures you’ll need to learn in your gross anatomy course. This medical textbook helps you master essential surface, gross, and radiologic anatomy concepts through high-quality photos, digital enhancements, and concise text introductions throughout.

• Get a clear understanding of surface, gross, and radiologic anatomy with a resource that’s great for use before, during, and after lab work, in preparation for examinations, and later on as a primer for clinical work.
• Learn as intuitively as possible with large, full-page photos for effortless comprehension. No more confusion and peering at small, closely cropped pictures!
• Easily distinguish highlighted structures from the background in each dissection with the aid of digitally color-enhanced images.
• See structures the way they present in the anatomy lab with specially commissioned dissections, all done using freshly dissected cadavers prepared using low-alcohol fixative.
• Bridge the gap between gross anatomy and clinical practice with clinical correlations throughout.

• Master anatomy efficiently with one text covering all you need to know, from surface to radiologic anatomy, that’s ideal for shortened anatomy courses.
• Review key structures quickly thanks to detailed dissection headings and unique icon navigation.
• Access the full text and self assessment questions at

Get a clear understanding of the human body through surface, gross and radiologic anatomy all in one place.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Erin Rae Leslie, PhD (Midwestern University)
Description: The second edition of this clinically oriented gross anatomy atlas features several new images and extensive revisions. The first edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: This goal is to provide new images of several key dissections and revised chapters in response to user comments and suggestions. The second edition improves upon the first with extensive content and organizational revisions, plus 20 new image plates. These revisions were warranted in order to clarify many legends, emphasize key structures, and to make the book easier to navigate.
Audience: The book is appropriate for health sciences students, as well as for professionals as a reliable reference.
Features: Each chapter in this regional anatomy atlas includes an introductory overview with schematic diagrams, muscle tables, clinical correlations, and helpful mnemonics. Full-color photographs of cadaveric dissections, osteological specimens, surface anatomy projections, and CT and MRI images follow each overview. The book comes with access to the Student Consult website, which includes the electronic version and downloadable full-color images and illustrations. The excellent clinical correlations are useful to students looking to apply the material to realistic situations. The ethnic and sex diversity of the models and cadavers is superior to other atlases.
Assessment: This revised edition is appropriate for all students in the health sciences and distinguishes itself from other atlases with its excellent dissection photographs, overviews, and clinical correlations. Each chapter includes osteological and radiographic images associated with the area, which results in repetition of figures throughout the book. It would be better to combine the osteological and radiographic images at the end of the four major regional sections rather than repeating plates in multiple chapters. The chapter on the perineum (chapter 38), omitted a few structures. This is not equivalent to a comprehensive textbook, but it provides more information and clinical comments than other basic atlases, including Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy, 5th edition (Elsevier, 2011), Atlas of Anatomy, 2nd edition, Gilroy et al. (Thieme, 2012), and Color Atlas of Anatomy: A Photographic Study of the Human Body, 7th edition, Rohen et al. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2011). Although it is less comprehensive than Grant's Atlas of Anatomy, 13th edition, Agur and Dalley (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2013), in basic anatomical structures, it offers photographs of actual structures rather than illustrations, which may appeal to some students.
