Overview

This new text features a compilation of clinical cases that use a problem-based approach to illustrate the clinical significance of the subdisciplines of anatomy. Seven separate sections present anatomy in a regional format. Each section contains several clinical cases that walk you through various patients' presentation, history and physical examination information, laboratory and diagnostic test results, diagnosis, and treatment. A series of related questions and accompanying answers follow each clinical scenario, probing your understanding of the clinical issues relevant to that body region.
  • Features more than 80 clinical scenarios that promote interactive learning and build a foundation of knowledge for clinical practice.
  • Presents information in seven sections to correspond with a regional approach to anatomy: head and neck, back, thorax, pelvis and perineum, upper extremity, and lower extremity.
  • Covers the subdisciplines of anatomy including anatomic pathology · cell biology · embryology · gross anatomy · histology · neuroanatomy · and radiologic anatomy.
  • Includes references to Gray's Anatomy for Students, and follows a parallel organization, making it easy to use both books together.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David W. Brzezinski, MD (University of Michigan Medical School)
Description: This new regional gross anatomy book is oriented around 61 clinical cases. While asking the student to work through various carefully crafted cases, the book incorporates other disciplines such as pathology, embryology, histology, radiography, and cell biology. A comprehensive multiple-choice examination at the end of the book assesses the student's mastery of the material.
Purpose: The book is intended to complement students' standard anatomy texts while focusing on relevant clinical correlations. As more and more medical programs are moving toward problem-based learning, books such as this one are becoming very useful. As such, the book certainly meets the author's objectives.
Audience: While the author states that the book is aimed at professional students and residents, it is likely best suited for students who have more available time and are looking to build their clinical knowledge base as well as their basic science knowledge. The author is an associate professor of anatomy at Des Moines University.
Features: This is a regional anatomy book that approaches the broad topic of gross anatomy from a clinical perspective in a case-based format. Other important disciplines such as pathology, histology, embryology, cell biology, and radiology are integrated into the material. The greatest asset of this book is its focus on clinical scenarios which will greatly facilitate students' understanding of difficult material. The images are also extremely useful. It should be emphasized, however, that this book is meant to function as a complement to other, more complete anatomy texts. In fact, it is claimed that the book has parallels to Gray's Anatomy for Students, Drake et al. (Elsevier, 2004), but I could not readily find the correlation. Such references should be included. Also, references should be included at the end of each case that direct students to other relevant resources for further learning.
Assessment: This is an excellent complementary resource for professional students looking to solidify their anatomy knowledge and begin to acquire fundamental clinical knowledge for the years to come. The embryological content, sometimes slighted in other books, is particularly useful and is very clinically important. This should not be a student's primary resource, but should be used to solidify concepts after mastering them in a different venue. By using this book, students will retain very important information for the rest of their careers and will more fully appreciate the importance of gross anatomy and the complexity of the human body.
