Overview

The on-going core of this atlas is its standard of realistic illustrations that portray anatomical relationships. Photographs of actual cadaver dissections along with numerous schematic drawings aid the student in anatomic orientation. Chapters are organized by region, in order of a typical dissection. Each chapter contains two sections: a description and illustration of organs, and a depiction of those organs within the regional anatomy. New to this edition is an increase of MRI pictures, approximately 30 schematic drawings made even more precise, and an updated text where appropriate.
  • Remarkable dissections with unmatched, precise representation of color and structure
  • Instructive schematic drawings in addition to brilliant color dissection photographs
  • Didactic organization which reflects the functional aspects of the organ systems
  • An "external to internal" presentation of dissections as in the lab
  • Consistent application of clinical cases
  • NEW IN THE 5TH EDITION:

  • New photographs of freshly dissected specimens
  • Additional MRI and CT scans
  • Tables and charts of the nervous and muscular systems
  • Revised schematic illustrations that provide the most accurate information
  • A section on learning boards to serve as a review tool

This book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Larry R. Cochard
This is the third edition of an anatomic atlas combining photographs of human cadaver dissections with didactic line drawings, CT scans, and MR images. Like most photographic atlases, it is intended to depict human anatomy in the most realistic manner possible for use in dissection labs as an aid to identification, for lab review, or in anatomy classes where cadavers are in short supply. Although the book is primarily intended for first-year medical students, it will be a good reference for senior students, residents, or anyone else learning or reviewing anatomy. Most of the atlas consists of high quality color photos of sequential dissections organized by body regions. The pictures have unobtrusive, numbered leader lines with with keyed structures listed on each page. Unique features that make this atlas more than just an aid to cadaver identification are imaging sections and colored line drawings. The latter include nerve and vessel schemes, topography, systemic overviews, muscle functions, and other anatomic points that are helpful in learning anatomy. The book is attractive, comprehensive, and has an extensive index. Three editions have resulted in a good product, but the process has been mostly fine-tuning instead of a significant change of content. It takes a little while to find changes from the second edition. Some photos have been replaced, a few line drawings have been added, and most new MR images are of the extremities. As a learning tool, this atlas has the best of the old and the new. The didactic figures found in traditional atlases, the imaging modalities, and the excellent pictures combine to make this the most versatile of the photographic atlases. If you have a copy ofthe second edition, though, hang on to it.
From The Critics
includes this extraordinary atlas among its selections; the first edition was published in 1983. Now considerably revised and enhanced, the continues its mission of presenting human anatomy using color photos of cadavers, thus giving students a much more realistic experience of spatial dimensions than pleasantly colored drawings could ever accomplish. Each of eight chapters consists of two parts, the first describing the anatomical structure of the organs under consideration; the second depicting the regional anatomy, with desciption of the superficial layers followed by the deeper and deepest layers—thus gearing the work to complement dissection classes in medical and dental schools. Schematic drawings of nerves and vessels, the course of muscles, and the nomenclature of various regions enhance understanding of the details seen in the photographs. Rohen and Elke Lütjen-Drecoll are affiliated with the Universität Erlagen-Nürnberg Universitätsstr); Chihiro Yokochi is emeritus, Kanagawa Dental College. Of the 1,158 figures, 1,035 in color. The format is slightly oversize: 8.5x12<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

The new edition of this awesome, stunning atlas (2nd, 1988) is improved with new macrophotos, schematic drawings, and CT-scans and MR-images (providing a more detailed outline on cross-sectional anatomy, particularly of the extremities). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
