Key Features

  • An organization by body region, rather than by organ system, parallels the way most of today's anatomy courses approach the subject and facilitates quick reference.
  • Exquisite full-color artwork from Gray's Anatomy for Students, as well as Standring: Gray's Anatomy, 39th Edition and Sobotta: Atlas of Human Anatomy, 14th Edition, makes structures easy to visualize, remember, and identify.
  • Terms and descriptions based on Terminologia Anatomica ensure conformity with the most widely used and up-to-date international anatomical nomenclature system.
  • Definitions from Dorland's Illustrated Medical Dictionary deliver clarity and accuracy from cover to cover.
  • Dorland’s Spell Checker, included on a mini-CD in the back of the book, makes it simple to spell medical terms correctly on your computer.
