A comprehensive introduction to medical terminology with an outstanding full-color art program. The text is organized by body systems and places a strong emphasis on anatomy and physiology, as well as roots, prefixes, and suffixes. Real-world application cases and physical exam, diagnosis, and treatment sections add a realistic clinical component to most chapters. A separate chapter on surgical terms is unique. Concept maps help students see how specifics fit into the big picture. Workbook style exercises include definitions, word building, vocabulary, crossword puzzles, spelling, abbreviations, and cases. A medical dictionary is built into the appendix.
