This concise, authoritative text emphasizes functional and living anatomy and its imaging in medical practice, an approach which allows readers to progress through the fundamentals of anatomy with or without the use of dissection supplements. The central chapters provide 13 seminars requiring two to three hours of study, systematically treating thoracic, abdominal, pelvic, and perineal organs, with introductions to their development. Each seminar also contains questions designed to help students monitor their progress. The text is richly illustrated with radiographs and endoscopic views of both healthy and diseased organs. Plastic covers and a spiral binding facilitate use of the book in the laboratory.
