A cornerstone of gross anatomy since 1943, Grant's Atlas of Anatomy continues to reach students worldwide with its realistic illustrations, detailed surface anatomy photos, clinical relevance, and muscle tables.

Renowned for its accuracy, pedagogy, and clinical relevance, the new edition of this classic anatomy atlas features many improvements, including updated artwork, more vital tissue colors, new conceptual diagrams, vibrantly re-colored illustrations, and a more consistent art style. Clinical integration has been greatly enhanced in this edition, with clinical material clearly highlighted for easy identification. In addition, the organization within each chapter has been updated to provide a clearer and more consistent approach.

A companion Website offers student and instructor versions of Grant's Interactive Atlas, including images from the book, video clips from Acland's DVD Atlas of Human Anatomy, USMLE-style questions, image-based drag-and-drop questions, and electronic flash cards from Gould's Clinical Anatomy Flash Cards

Medical and health professions students as well as faculty and practitioners continue to rely on Grant's Atlas for its accuracy and comprehensiveness. See what this new edition has to offer!

"Compared to [other atlases on the market], I find the contents and the images of this book significantly better mainly because of the life-like images and also the [accompanying] brief descriptions... [which] help keep the interest level going strong."
--3rd year student

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

For over 50 years, this publication has been the lab partner of students who appreciate fine artwork, realistic presentation, and concise observations. It features regional organization presented in a sequence based on how the reader would perform an actual laboratory dissection. This tenth edition includes increased sizing of many figures, more information on neuroanatomy, and new features such as tables of muscles, and an MRI section at the end of each chapter.

Editorial Reviews

Teresa A. Dombrowski
This atlas of gross anatomy features anatomical and schematic drawings, tables, diagnostic images, and accompanying text. The intent is to provide an atlas that can be used not only in the gross anatomy lab, but also as a reference throughout a practitioner's medical career. This atlas would be useful for any individual studying or practicing in a health-related field. The tenth editon has undergone considerable revision from previous editions. The number of diagnostic images, both MRIs and radiographs, has increased, and they are frequently correlated with anatomical drawings. The text that accompanies the illustrations has been updated and contains clinical correlations. The descriptions are sometimes a little terse, however, and should be expanded. The inclusion of tables listing muscle origin, insertion, and action provides a good study aid. The excellent anatomical illustrations used in previous editions of the atlas have been retained, with some new illustrations added when necessary. The illustrations are not overly labeled and key structures are emphasized. Many schematic diagrams are used in the text. While those that summarize lymphatic drainage are particularly good and easy to understand, those that summarize the autonomic innervation of different regions need stronger colors and consistent keying to be effective. There is also a need for a clear schematic illustration of the zones of the prostate. This atlas differs from most other atlases available, such as Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy, 2nd Edition (Novartis Medical Education, 1997), because it contains not only illustrations, but also a significant amount of factual and clinical informationin the accompanying text. It actually falls into the category of a text/atlas. Overall, it is excellent. Although students may originally be overwhelmed by the large amount of information presented, they will find it an invaluable reference tool throughout their career.
From The Critics
Reviewer: Loretta Lucille White, DNS, RN (Indiana State University)
Description: Grant's Anatomy offers an exquisite and comprehensive depiction of the human body. Last published in 1999, this newest edition features drawings that provide unique visual dissections of body structures for the discerning student of anatomy.
Purpose: The authors state that their purpose is to provide an updated version of this book while preserving the integrity and strength of previous editions. The authors fully meet and exceed their objectives in this fine reference. Students of anatomy will readily recognize the value of this book with its complete, thorough, and clear depictions of the human body.
Audience: Although written for medical students and faculty, this book has widespread applications. Grant's Anatomy could easily serve as a comprehensive, "must have" reference for anyone who is studying or practicing in a healthcare field. The authors' academic credentials attest to their ability to write such a book as this and illustrate the extraordinary credibility they bring to this work.
Features: All body structures are described in narrative and pictorial forms. In a unique approach, the authors use illustrations that depict sequential dissections of body parts allowing for an "outside to inside" perspective much as if a student were actually in the dissecting room. The inclusion of many actual body scans and x-rays enhance understanding of the content. A minor but potentially useful change would be to arrange the content in a "head to toe" format because that is the typical order healthcare professionals review and assess the human body.
Assessment: I have taught basic anatomy and physiology to nursing students for many years and know the value a clear and concise reference has for new learners:especially for such a technical and involved subject. I have always used Hole's Human Anatomy & Physiology, 10th edition (McGraw-Hill, 2003) as a primary text, but Grant's Anatomy would serve as a wonderful supplement.
New edition of the classic laboratory manual that features representations of actual dissections rather than idealized views of human anatomy. Color schematic illustrations supplement the dissection figures to clarify anatomical concepts, show the relationships of structures, and give an overview of the body region being studied. Contains many new illustrations and simple orientation drawings, expanded coverage of neuroanatomy, diagnostic imaging sections at the end of each chapter, and muscle tables. Annotation c.

    Very good atlas

    Grant's is an excellent atlas and is perfect for use in lab or studying elsewhere. The drawings are quite good but the most useful information may be in the text next to many illustrations--many muscle details (origin, insertion, innervation, etc.) and written relationships of structures (VERY useful for practical exams).
