Praise for this book:

"Impressive...remarkably effective." - Journal of the American Medical Association

"[Five stars] A brilliant masterpiece, filled with anatomical illustrations of great accuracy, appropriately labeled and aesthetically appealing." - Doody's Review

Atlas of Anatomy contains everything students need to successfully tackle the daunting challenges of anatomy.

Complete with exquisite, full-color illustrations by award-winning artists Markus Voll and Karl Wesker, the atlas is organized to lead students step-by-step through each region of the body. Each region opens with the foundational skeletal framework. The subsequent chapters build upon this foundation, adding the muscles, then organs, then vessels, then nerves, and finally presenting topographic anatomy for a comprehensive view. Each unit closes with surface anatomy accompanied by questions that ask the reader to apply knowledge learned for the real-life physical examination of patients.

  • Brief introductory texts that provide an accessible
    entry point when a new topic is presented

  • Clinical correlates and images, including

Awesome book. Maybe better than Netters. The diagrams are very well done- big and clear. What I really like are the schematic drawings of the muscles- they show all muscles individually with simple drawings to show origin and insertion. Very useful for understanding what the muscle does. They also include X rays and MRIs in the book so you can easily translate basic anatomy into clinical understanding.
