Gray's Anatomy: The Anatomical Basis of Clinical Practice, Part 2

Front Cover
Elsevier Churchill Livingstone, 2005 - Human anatomy - 1627 pages
Not since it first published in 1858 has Gray's Anatomy introduced so much innovation to the world of anatomical references. A team of renowned clinicians, anatomists, and basic scientists have radically transformed this classic resource to incorporate all of the newest anatomical knowledge...reorganized it by body region to parallel clinical practice...and added many new surface anatomy, radiologic anatomy, and microanatomy images to complement the exquisite artwork that the book is known for. In addition, a new, multimedia package enables users to consult the printed book...access a dynamic, continuously updated web site...or explore a CD-ROM containing all of the book's images plus 9 fully rotatable, strippable anatomical models. Although there are now many books called Gray's Anatomy, only this 39th Edition carries on the true lineage of the original text. And, only this 39th Edition delivers so much pragmatic, clinically indispensable information. The result is, once again, the world's definitive source on human anatomy.
  • Unparalleled description of human structure serving as the ultimate resource on human anatomy
  • Spectacular artwork programme including almost 700 entirely new illustrations; permitting the reader to learn and memorise 3-D relationships of anatomical structures and apply this knowledge to their surgical, dental or physiotherapy practice
  • Editorial board comprising mainly clinicians, not basic scientists, ensures applicability to surgeons, radiologists, etc.
  • Regional organisation ensures all anatomical content relevant to say, an operation on the shoulder, is contained in one place and not scattered between body-system sections
  • Fewer pages for a crisper, more accessible book
    • A new organization-by body region, rather than by organ system-parallels the way physicians approach patients.
    • A new clinical emphasis ensures relevance to everyday practice.
    • Updates reflect the very latest understanding of the pelvic floor - the inner ear - the peritoneum - preimplantation embryology - assisted fertilization - smooth and cardiac muscle - wrist kinematics and kinetics - the temporomandi¬bular joint - blood supply to the muscles and skin - topographical, clinico-pathological, and functional anatomy - cross-sectional and endoscopic imaging - the spread of infection along fascial planes - anatomical landmarks that facilitate differential diagnosis - key anatomical variants throughout the body - and many other crucial areas.
    • Almost 400 new illustrations nearly 2,000 in all, over half of them in full color-depict all structures with optimal clarity, includ¬ing surface anatomy, radiologic anatomy, and microanatomy.
    • A new, multimedia package enables users to consult the printed book...access a dynamic, continuously updated web site...or explore a CD-ROM containing all of the book's images plus 9 fully rotatable, strippable anatomical models.
