Description: This is an update of a book that covers basic histology from the cell to organ systems. The previous edition was published in 2010.
Purpose: The purpose is to present cell biology and histology as it integrates with biochemistry and physiology. The book uses "Medical Applications" to illustrate the relationship of the material to the clinical setting. The book is effective in leading medical students and other healthcare providers through the basics of microscopic anatomy and to prepare them for subsequent studies in pathology.
Audience: It is intended for medical students and students in other healthcare professions. It also can be used by science undergraduate students.
Features: The book leads readers through the structure of cells and tissues. Later chapters discuss the organization of cells and tissues into organ systems. Over 1,500 high-quality diagrams and images illustrate the text. Each chapter ends with a summary of key points. "Medical applications" sections appear throughout the book to help readers understand the relevance of the material to clinical issues. Additional resources include a CD containing all images from the book and an online collection of 150 virtual slides.
Assessment: This is one of the most widely used books in the study of histology and is available in many different languages. This edition includes updated research and clinical developments that will help beginning students understand the relevance of the material. It also rolls out a new style and page design using new art work and images. Overall, this edition is more colorful and makes key points more easily accessible through new tables, chapter summaries, and expanded figure legends.
