Overview

The Thirteenth edition of Grant's Dissector restores this renowned anatomy lab manual to its original purpose, which is to serve as a step-by-step manual for dissection procedures. This new edition features a more streamlined approach to cadaver dissection, focusing on more accurate, specific, and clear steps. The overall number of pages and figures has been reduced, reflecting a general trend toward fewer contact hours in the gross anatomy lab.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: George C. Enders, Ph.D.(University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This is the 13th edition of a guide to the regional dissection of the human body for healthcare professional students. The 12th edition was published in 1999.
Purpose: Grant's Dissector is designed to be used as a step-by-step guide to regional gross anatomy dissection of the human body for those in healthcare professions where gross anatomy often takes up a smaller part of the curricular time than in previous generations. The dissector is to be used simultaneously with a good textbook and an atlas.
Audience: The dissector is designed principally for beginning medical, dental, and physical therapy students and other healthcare providers as their step-by-step guide to dissection of the human body to maximize the educational values of the cadavers. The author is the Director of the Division of Anatomical Education at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
Features: This edition of this classic dissection approach (it has been used for more than 60 years by many medical schools) has been shortened without sacrificing clarity or content. A major advantage of this edition is that the dissection steps have been numbered, thereby allowing instructors to more accurately detail steps that they may want omitted or modified. The dissector contains a number of new illustrations specifically designed to aid the process of step-by-step dissection. The dissector chapter order starts with the back and spine. One of the advantages is each regional chapter is self-contained, so that courses which dissect in a different order than that followed by the book will still find the dissector useful. Each regional chapter starts with surface anatomy, then covers osteology, contains a "Before you dissect...," section containing dissection objectives, numbered step-by step procedures, and ends with "After you dissect...," section intended to improve student retention of knowledge. Most key anatomical structures are bolded which often end up serving as a de facto checklist for pre-exam review. Minor steps in the dissection approach have been modified, especially those that are often very destructive of more superficial structures. This edition has retained the cross references to the four most popular atlases to aid the dissection process.
Assessment: The new authorship of the 13th edition has improved upon this time-honored classic dissector. It has retained its complete and thorough list of structures to be dissected and identified, but has done so in a more concise fashion, saving students' time.
