Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This update is a great addition to the field of anatomy. It adds clinical correlations and online tools that are helpful to educators and students. The photographs of human dissections are easier to learn from and help students form mental images of bones, muscles, and vessels in the human body. Overall, I have found McMinn and Abrahams' atlas to be very helpful in learning human anatomy and I would recommend it to any student or educator."-Anne K Demas, Medical Student(Midwestern University Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine) Doody Review: 4 stars
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anne K Demas, Medical Student(Midwestern University Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine)
Description: The seventh edition of this atlas contains not only real dissections, but also clinical thumbnails, radiological images, and lymphatics. New features since the 2008 edition include online 3D videos and clinical cases to help students better understand the anatomy of the human body and its importance in clinical medicine.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an atlas that correlates the "real" human body dissections directly with clinical practice areas such as radiology, endoscopy, and clinical problems. The radiological and endoscopic images provide a variety of ways to view the human body, and the clinical thumbnails online help students make connections between the anatomy and real clinical problems. Technology plays a big role in the field of medicine and the authors have succeeded in creating an atlas with additional online resources that encourages the use of technology to better understand the human body and the importance of anatomy in clinical practice.
Audience: This atlas is especially good for students taking anatomy during their first year of medical school. The real human dissections, the different views of each part of the body, the progressive depth of dissections, and the surface marking images are all very helpful in learning and understanding the anatomy of the human body. The authors are educators who understand what tools are needed to teach students anatomy and they used this knowledge to create a very useful and detailed atlas.
Features: The atlas is organized from head to toe. Each chapter is dedicated to a large area of the body which then gets broken down into very detailed images. Each chapter begins with the skeleton and depicts the landmarks, different views, and the muscle attachments for each bone. This is very helpful, as most atlases do not go into this much detail or show as many views of each bone. The chapter then moves on to surface marking images, which show that part of the body with drawings on the skin. These are great to have at the beginning of each chapter because they help students visualize where everything is located underneath the skin. The chapters then gradually progress from a superficial dissection to a deep dissection. This helps students understand the layers and also the relationship of different structures to one another. The first chapter, head and neck, is done exceptionally well and includes some color-coded illustrations, short paragraphs to help better explain an image, and reference images to help show the orientation of a zoomed in area. The end of each chapter contains a few pages of clinical thumbnails that can be accessed online to help students correlate the anatomy they have just learned to actual clinical cases they may face in the future. Throughout the atlas, this detailed outline is maintained, but certain aspects do not receive as much attention as expected. Some of the heart images are unnecessary, such as the image of the transverse sinus and oblique sinus, while others are not included, like the left atrium. Also, the perineum is usually a difficult area for students to understand and more drawings to help them orient themselves and understand the relationship of the perineum to other parts of the body would have been helpful. Overall, however, this atlas is very educational and would be my first choice.
Assessment: This update is a great addition to the field of anatomy. It adds clinical correlations and online tools that are helpful to educators and students. The photographs of human dissections are easier to learn from and help students form mental images of bones, muscles, and vessels in the human body. I prefer this to Netter's Clinical Anatomy, 3rd edition, Hansen (Elsevier, 2014), which, although it has great illustrations, has no real dissections to help students when they are dissecting cadavers. I would also recommend this atlas over Color Atlas of Anatomy: A Photographic Study of the Human Body, 7th edition, Rohen et al. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2014), which, although it has real dissections, lacks the number of images and views that this atlas provides. Overall, I have found McMinn and Abrahams' atlas to be very helpful in learning human anatomy and I would recommend it to any student or educator.
