Overview

diFiore's Atlas of Histology with Functional Correlations explains basic histology concepts through realistic, full-color composite and idealized illustrations of histologic structures. Added to the illustrations are actual photomicrographs of similar structures, a popular trademark of the atlas. All structures are directly correlated with the most important and essential functional correlations, allowing students to efficiently learn histologic structures and their major functions at the same time.

This new edition features:

  • Expanded Introduction on basic histology techniques and staining as well as a more comprehensive list of stains that students may encounter in their histology course
  • New chapter on cell biology accompanied by both drawings and representative photomicrographs of the main stages in the cell cycle during mitosis
  • Contents reorganized into four parts, progressing logically from Methods and Microscopy through Tissues and Systems
  • Improved art program with digitally enhanced images to provide increased detail
  • More than 40 new photomicrograph images, including light and transmission electron micrographs
  • Student Resources: Online E-book, Interactive Question Bank for chapter review, and Interactive Atlas featuring all images from the book + more than 450 additional micrographs

diFiore’s Atlas of Histology is the perfect resource for medical and graduate histology students.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Guiyun Zhang, MD, PhD (Thomas Jefferson University)
Description: Histology is one of the important basic science courses for medicine. Mastery of this body of knowledge of tissue structure and function enables students to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the human design and provides them with an essential foundation for interpreting pathological aspects of disease. This new edition of a comprehensive histology atlas provides richly annotated photomicrographs, colorful illustrations, and informative functional correlations. Its 22 chapters emphasize basic and principal features of cells, tissues, and organs. The sequence of topics follows a traditional approach, moving from basic tissue types to cover all of the major organ systems.
Purpose: According to the author, the goal of this atlas is to "serve as a valuable supplement in histology laboratory where traditional histology is taught." This new edition provides students "with improved, realistic full-color composite and idealized illustrations of histologic structures," along with "actual light and transmission electron photomicrographs." The book includes functional correlations so that students can "learn different histologic structures and their major functions at the same time."
Audience: The book is intended for a diverse group of students, including undergraduates and graduates, as well as students of medicine, veterinary medicine, and other allied health sciences.
Features: This full-color atlas of histology is well written, expertly edited, and a joy to read. Each chapter begins with a brief and concise overview/introduction that helps students navigate. A brief but accurate description of a tissue or cell type is followed by beautiful illustrations and carefully annotated photomicrographs that accurately demonstrate the principal features of the cell or tissue. Functional (clinical) correlations are found throughout. These sections help students achieve a more complete understanding of tissue structure and biological function. The summary at the end of each chapter is a great feature that helps students learn. The first chapter (new in this edition) introduces basic histological staining techniques that provide a useful framework for interpretation of photomicrographs. Online ancillaries include an interactive atlas, a histology image library, and a helpful bank of high-quality, multiple-choice self-assessment questions.
Assessment: This is an excellent histology text and atlas. Each illustration and photomicrograph is carefully annotated to highlight principal features. Functional correlations provide students with an integrated set of clinically relevant information. The illustrated figures are especially helpful for students who are learning about histology for the first time. We are using this atlas as we teach our first-year medical student class.
