Overview

The first title in the new three-volume Lippincott Concise Illustrated Anatomy series, Back, Upper Limb and Lower Limb supports medical students as well as others studying anatomy—such as students in physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant, and dental programs—or seeking a specialty reference for the clerkship years and beyond. Each volume in the series includes outline text to accompany full-color, atlas-style images and illustrations from sources such as the Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Atlas of Anatomy. The unique regional focus of the series facilitates teaching and learning in semester or year-long anatomy systems blocks.

This volume on the back, upper limb and lower limb aligns with the musculoskeletal systems block. Two forthcoming volumes in the series--Thorax, Abdomen, and Pelvis and Head and Neck--cover other regions in depth.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: Each section in this illustrated book on the anatomy of the musculoskeletal system is accompanied by superior quality images and outline-format text that is filled with anatomic pearls.
Purpose: This offering is one of three volumes whose goal is to present the broad gamut of anatomy. This volume covers the back, upper extremity, and lower extremity. Volume 2 covers the thorax, abdomen, and pelvis, and volume 3 covers the head and neck. Dividing the material into three volumes and using wonderful figures and an outline format is an efficient way to review and access anatomy. The book flows easily and it would be a great anatomy resource just prior to surgical cases.
Audience: The audience for this series is broad and includes all healthcare professionals who deal with anatomy. I can easily envision this book's popularity among medical students in anatomy as a cost-effective review and guide. This volume will have special value for trainers, students, clinicians, and allied health professionals whose focus is the musculoskeletal system.
Features: Clearly, a book on anatomy would be nothing without high quality drawings or images. This one has an impressive group of high quality, beautiful anatomic drawings that serve as a wonderful guide and reference to healthcare professionals. The images are clearly the gem here. The outline-format text and guide is a bonus.
Assessment: This is a wonderful and efficient collection of anatomic images of the musculoskeletal system. One of the surprising benefits of this book is that it is amazingly cost-efficient. Clearly worth the investment to put on your shelf as an anatomic reference or to place in your office to educate your patients.
