Atlas of Clinical Gross Anatomy uses over 500 incredibly well-executed and superb dissection photos and illustrations to guide you through all the key structures you'll need to learn in your gross anatomy course. This medical textbook helps you master essential surface, gross, and radiologic anatomy concepts through high-quality photos, digital enhancements, and concise text introductions throughout.
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.

"This revised edition is appropriate for all students in the health sciences and distinguishes itself from other atlases with its excellent dissection photographs, overviews, and clinical correlations. Each chapter includes osteological and radiographic images associated with the area, which results in repetition of figures throughout the book. It would be better to combine the osteological and radiographic images at the end of the four major regional sections rather than repeating plates in multiple chapters. The chapter on the perineum (chapter 38), omitted a few structures. This is not equivalent to a comprehensive textbook, but it provides more information and clinical comments than other basic atlases. It offers photographs of actual structures rather than illustrations, which may appeal to some students." Erin Leslie, PhD(Midwestern University) Doody Review:80/100
