Color Atlas of Anatomy: A Photographic Study of the Human Body

Front Cover
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1998 - Anatomy - 486 pages
This atlas features outstanding full-color photographs of actual cadaver dissections, with accompanying schematic drawings and diagnostic images. The photographs depict anatomic structures more realistically than illustrations in traditional atlases and show students exactly what they will see in the dissection lab. Chapters are organized by region in order of a typical dissection. Each chapter presents structures both in a systemic manner from deep to surface, and in a regional manner. This edition has sixteen additional pages of clinical images-including CT and MRI-that students can compare with cross-sectional anatomic photographs. Many pictures have been electronically enhanced or rescanned for better contrasts.

Superb, amazing dissections. Older editions (which are still great) from 2002 may be found online for around $10-20. Highly recommended. Read full review
