Overview

This companion resource to Gray's Anatomy for Students presents a vivid, visual depiction of anatomical structures. It demonstrates their correlation with appropriate clinical images and surface anatomy — essential for proper identification in the dissection lab and successful preparation for course exams. Clinically focused, consistently and clearly illustrated throughout, and logically organised...Gray's Atlas of Anatomy makes it easier to master the essential anatomy knowledge you need for exams and dissection labs.

• Learn anatomy in a logical fashion by following an approach that in many cases progresses from a superficial to a deep orientation in logical progression.
• Identify at a glance the various anatomical structures of the body and better understand their relationships to each other with the visual guidance of 1395 exquisitely illustrated anatomical figures.
• Visualize the clinical correlation between exterior and interior anatomy thanks to 85 surface anatomy photographs overlaid with anatomical drawings — more surface anatomy photographs than you will find in any other anatomy atlas!
• Recognize anatomical structures as they present in practice through 272 clinical images — including laparoscopic, radiologic, surgical, ophthalmoscopic, otoscopic, and other clinical views — placed adjacent to anatomic artwork for side-by-side comparison.
• Use additional online tools with bonus access to www.graysatlas.com with your purchase.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Geoffrey H Sperber, BDS, MS, PhD, FICD, Dr MedDent(University of Alberta Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry)
Description: This atlas, based upon Gray's Anatomy for Students, Drake et al. (Elsevier, 2004), contains highly colored, digitally generated images of regions of human anatomy accompanied by juxtaposed black-and-white images of radiographs, CAT scans, MRIs, and ultrasonographs. Its color-coded corner tabs makes regional identification of body parts easily accessible, but the most valuable feature is the access to a Web site.
Purpose: The purpose was "to produce an atlas that would build on themes and concepts established in the (predecessor) textbook." The atlas requires the accompanying textbook to be fully useful. Thus, the atlas partially meets the requirements for the necessary accomplishment of anatomical knowledge.
Audience: The atlas was compiled for students at an entry level of anatomy study, according to the authors. It partially meets this objective, but needs the accompanying text for full comprehension.
Features: It covers the entire anatomy of the adult human body in diagrams and clinical diagnostic photographs. The digitally generated drawings create an artificial "hard" portrayal of anatomical parts that somewhat divorces them from the reality of soft tissue anatomy. The access to online portrayals of real anatomy via the Web site is the most valuable feature of this atlas. There is no glossary in the book and none currently available on the Web site.
Assessment: The artificiality of the highly colored drawings detracts from its usefulness as an applied clinical anatomical atlas, but the atlas is rescued by the black-and-white real body images of X-rays, MRIs, CAT scans, and ultrasonographs. This newcomer to the plethora of human anatomy atlases already available* will not pose a serious challenge to them, and does not match the distinguished rubric of the classical Gray's under which it is published.

From the Publisher
"a collection of beautifully drawn anatomical illustrations; each clearly labelled allowing for easy identification of the various structures...an excellent, pictorial anatomy guide for medical students learning anatomy for the first time whether they're in the dissection room or as part of their private study."
UK Medical Student

BMA Book Awards 2008 - Highly Commended

"The quality of the artistic illustrations is high with some being particularly clear and helpful. This is a valuable and welcome addition to the anatomy world which any student of the subject will find a valuable resource to support their learning and understanding of the complexity of the human body."
