Stedman's 26th edition has taken on a whole new look. Color illustrations have been added to highlight important definitions and provide a more exciting visual approach to medical language. There are also 12,000 new terms that reflect the dynamic growth of fields such as biotechnology, biochemistry, genetics, embryology, epidemiology, radiology, and neurology. In addition, 125 high-profile terms are highlighted in green.

Some of the new features that make Stedman's/26 even easier to use are as follows:

  • Precision thumb tabs that show the first two letters of the last word on each page for quick orientation.
  • Anatomic definitions located at common English translations of Latin terms.
  • 29 color anatomical images from the A.D.A.M. (reg.) Software Program in their own section.
  • Green Synonyms: Green means go to the main term where definitions can be found.
  • 1,200 Greek and Latin word parts.

"...1000 new color illustrations, 10,000 new entries, and expanded definitions for 125 high profile terms have been added to the 100,000 authoritative entries in this updated classic reference."

Editorial Reviews

**** The standard authority on medical language, the 25th edition (1990) is cited in Brandon-Hill and ARBA 1991. The 26th edition adds 12,000 new terms, many of them concentrated in the rapidly developing areas of biotechnology, biochemistry, genetics, embryology, epidemiology, radiology, and neurology. Among the features new to this edition are 125 identified high profile terms with expanded definitions; listing of terms primarily by English translations of the Latin (with the Latin terms cross-referenced to their English equivalents); 1,000 new color illustrations, photographs, and tables; and 29 color anatomical plates near the center of the volume. Every new edition of Stedman's is cause to celebrate; this one is the best and easiest to use yet. Essential. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
