A cornerstone of gross anatomy since 1943, Grant's Atlas of Anatomy continues to reach students worldwide with its realistic illustrations, detailed surface anatomy photos, clinical relevance, and muscle tables.

Renowned for its accuracy, pedagogy, and clinical relevance, the new edition of this classic anatomy atlas features many improvements, including updated artwork, more vital tissue colors, new conceptual diagrams, vibrantly re-colored illustrations, and a more consistent art style. Clinical integration has been greatly enhanced in this edition, with clinical material clearly highlighted for easy identification. In addition, the organization within each chapter has been updated to provide a clearer and more consistent approach.

A companion Website offers student and instructor versions of Grant's Interactive Atlas, including images from the book, video clips from Acland's DVD Atlas of Human Anatomy, USMLE-style questions, image-based drag-and-drop questions, and electronic flash cards from Gould's Clinical Anatomy Flash Cards.

Medical and health professions students as well as faculty and practitioners continue to rely on Grant's Atlas for its accuracy and comprehensiveness. See what this new edition has to offer!

"Compared to [other atlases on the market], I find the contents and the images of this book significantly better mainly because of the life-like images and also the [accompanying] brief descriptions... [which help keep the interest level going strong."
--3rd year student
