The Language of Medicine, 8th Edition, shows you how to analyze and understand the meanings of medical terms in a way that makes sense-by breaking terms down into smaller word parts and clearly explaining them in relation to human anatomy, physiology, and pathology. Extensive hands-on practice, repetition, and case studies let you learn by doing-writing terms, labeling diagrams, and completing comprehensive, practical exercises.

Brings terminology to life with dynamic, three-dimensional illustrations, compelling clinical photographs, realistic medical cases, and laboratory and x-ray reports. Keeps it simple through the use of clear, nontechnical explanations of terms. Promotes active learning and teaches you how to study with a wealth of hands-on exercises. Follows a logical progression, from introductory chapters on word analysis, to an exploration of each body system.
