Overview

This set of 220 flash cards is based on the images in Color Atlas of Anatomy: A Photographic Study of the Human Body, Sixth Edition. This is the only gross anatomy flash card set that includes full-color photographs of actual cadaver dissections. The photographs realistically depict anatomic structures as seen on the cadaver, allowing students to prepare for lab dissections and study for practical laboratory exams.

On the front of each card is an image with key structures labeled. On the back of each card are hints to help identify the structure and relevant clinical pearls.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David W. Brzezinski, MD (University of Michigan Medical School)
Description: This is a collection of flashcards that use color photographs of expertly dissected cadaveric images taken from Color Atlas of Anatomy: A Photographic Study of the Human Body, 6th edition, Rohen, et. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2006). The cards demonstrate a regional approach to the entire human body, and are intended to be used as an adjunct to the atlas as students prepare for laboratory-based examinations.
Purpose: According to the author, the purpose is to help students in the health professions prepare for practical examinations in a medical gross anatomy and/or neuroanatomy course. Specifically, these cards were created so students would be able to study actual post-dissection photographs of the human body and assess their knowledge of how important anatomic structures actually look (as opposed to an artist's rendition). These cards nicely meet the purpose and are very pragmatic.
Audience: The target audience includes students in a human gross anatomy course who wish to assess their knowledge of the anatomic structures and relations of the human body as they actually look in the cadaver. These are ideal for students preparing for an upcoming practical examination.
Features: These flash cards contain well over 200, full-color photographs of actual cadaver dissections. The photographs are taken directly from Rohen's atlas, and references to the corresponding pages are provided on the back of each card. Each card (and corresponding photograph) has four anatomic structures that are labeled, but not identified. The back of the card provides students with the proper identification, as well as relevant identification hints and pertinent clinical information. When used for their intended purpose, these flashcards are an excellent resource. If I were to make any suggested changes, it would be to add more labels. Ideally, to circumvent the labeling issue, students will hopefully identify as many structures as they are able, and then confirm the accuracy of their identification by consulting the Rohen atlas.
Assessment: There are many sets of anatomic flashcards on the market, but none use color photographs. Therefore, for the purpose of practical examination preparation, these cards are second to none.
