Gray’s Clinical Photographic Dissector of the Human Body, by Drs. Marios Loukas, Brion Benninger, and R. Shane Tubbs, helps you take a clinical approach to the study of anatomy. This unique dissection guide uses full-color photographs rather than anatomical drawings to orient you more quickly in the lab, and points out the clinical significance of each structure and every dissection you make. You will also find valuable information on several emergency procedures used today to further reinforce the clinical correlations. With 1,300+ photos, this resource is a great way to learn or review anatomy and its relevance to clinical practice.
- Easily relate anatomy structures to clinical conditions and procedures .
- Perform dissections with confidence by comparing the 1,350 full-color photographs to the cadavers you study.
- Understand the pertinent anatomy for 18 common emergency procedures such as lumbar puncture and knee aspiration.
- Depend on the same level of accuracy and thoroughness that have made Gray’s Anatomy the defining reference on this complex subject, thanks to the expertise of Dr. Marios Loukas, a leading authority in the world of clinical anatomy.

Dr. R. Shane Tubbs is Neurosurgery Professor; Structural & Cellular Biology Professor and Anatomical Research Director, CNRC; Surgical Anatomy Director at Tulane School of Medicine His “reverse translational anatomy” lab works researches clinical/surgical problems through anatomical studies. This investigative paradigm has resulted in over 1,500 peer reviewed publications. Dr. Tubbs’ lab has made novel discoveries in human anatomy and many anatomical feasibility studies from his lab have been used by surgeons from around the world. He has been a visiting professor to major institutions in the U.S. and worldwide. Dr. Tubbs has authored/edited over 50 books including Gray’s Anatomy Review, Gray’s Clinical Photographic Dissector of the Human Body, Netter’s Introduction to Clinical Procedures, Anatomy for Plastic Surgery of the Face, Head, and Neck, Nerves and Nerve Injuries, A History of Human Anatomy, and Bergman’s Comprehensive Encyclopedia of Human Anatomic Variation. He is an editor for the 41st and 42nd editions of Gray’s Anatomy, the 5th through 7th editions of Netter’s Atlas of Human Anatomy and is the editor-in-chief of the journal Clinical Anatomy, which is the official journal of the American and British Associations of Clinical Anatomists.
