Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: 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.
