Front Cover
Lippincott-Raven Publishers, 1997 - Medical - 902 pages
Long established as a standard textbook of gross anatomy, Hollinshead's Textbook of Anatomy is now in its Fifth Edition. Like its predecessors, this volume presents the anatomical facts and concepts necessary to fully understand the three-dimensional dynamic structure of the human body. The text is suited for independent study as well as for use in conjunction with structured courses. Important changes have been made in this edition to meet the demands of contemporary education in the health-related professions. The seven chapters on the back and limbs have been completely rewritten to integrate developmental considerations and functional anatomy with topographical anatomy. More than 200 new illustrations have been added to this edition, including many radiological images obtained with state-of-the-art imaging methods. The illustrations depict both normal anatomy and lesions to sharpen the reader's understanding of the appearance of normal structures. Many of the previous edition's illustrations have been modified and enhanced.
