This compact atlas provides medical, dental, allied health, and biology students with an outstanding collection of histology images for all of the major tissue classes and body systems. The Fourth Edition features a completely re-digitized image collection, along with other hallmarks of this atlas that have been proven over time, including its concise writing style, compact size/format, and quick introduction/background for each chapter that reviews essential concepts, histophysiology, and clinical considerations.

A bound-in interactive student CD-ROM contains all the images from the book with compare and full-screen view modes, zoom, label rollover and on/off features, along with USMLE-style and identification review questions.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ronald P. Jensh, B.A., M.A., Ph.D.(Thomas Jefferson University)
Description: This is the fourth edition of an atlas of histologic images in the traditional manner. It has a number of three dimensional full color illustrations, as well as short descriptions of each photograph. An outline of the topic precedes the photographs and there are numerous clinical correlative examples. It has been several years since the last edition.
Purpose: As an atlas, the purpose is to provide students with visual examples of microscopic images of the various cells and tissues of the body and their arrangement in each of the major organ systems. The objectives of the authors are clearly evident and they have succeeded in attaining those objectives.
Audience: The atlas is intended for use primarily by students in upper division college (3rd and 4th year) and first year medical students. It would also serve well for students needing to review for pathology, traditionally a second year medical school topic, as well as postgraduate medical students and biology graduate students. The authors are recognized authorities in this field.
Features: This atlas is structured in the traditional manor, covering first the primary tissues of the body, then each of the organ systems, in turn. The sequence is similar to other atlases and histologic textbooks. The photographs are well executed and are appropriately color balanced and corrected. As one who has seen many atlas/text photographs that were not, I especially appreciate this. In this day and age, because of digitization, there is no reason why photographic images should not be color balanced and these authors have done an excellent job of addressing this concern. The photographs are well labeled and the labels are not obtrusive. In addition, the three dimensional illustrations are in color and are exceptionally well done. Undoubtedly, students will appreciate this aspect of the atlas and it will aid them in understanding the full character of the images they are studying. The clinical correlations are a nice feature, always appreciated by students. The CD-ROM is well done, providing a clear and uncluttered layout. The only reservation I have is that it is often hard to determine what the arrows are pointing to because the photographs, even with the zoom feature, are relatively small. Still, students will learn well by practicing with the questions and attempting to get the correct answers.
Assessment: This well done atlas is a major step up from the previous edition. It will be very useful to the target audience and compares very favorably to other atlases currently available.
