Key Features

  • Get a clear understanding of surface, gross, and radiologic anatomy with a resource that’s great for use before, during, and after lab work, in preparation for examinations, and later on as a primer for clinical work.
  • Learn as intuitively as possible with large, full-page photos for effortless comprehension. No more confusion and peering at small, closely cropped pictures!
  • Easily distinguish highlighted structures from the background in each dissection with the aid of digitally color-enhanced images.
  • See structures the way they present in the anatomy lab with specially commissioned dissections, all done using freshly dissected cadavers prepared using low-alcohol fixative.
  • Bridge the gap between gross anatomy and clinical practice with clinical correlations throughout.
