Key Features

  • Build on your existing anatomy knowledge with structures presented from a superficial to deep orientation, representing a logical progression through the body.
  • Identify the various anatomical structures of the body and better understand their relationships to each other with the visual guidance of nearly 1,000 exquisitely illustrated anatomical figures.
  • Visualize the clinical correlation between anatomical structures and surface landmarks with surface anatomy photographs overlaid with anatomical drawings.
  • Recognize anatomical structures as they present in practice through more than 270 clinical images — including laparoscopic, radiologic, surgical, ophthalmoscopic, otoscopic, and other clinical views — placed adjacent to anatomic artwork for side-by-side comparison.
