About the Author:
This popular atlas maps out the structures of the human body and puts them in a clinical context. It incorporates an unrivalled collection of cadaveric, osteological, and clinical images with surface anatomy models, interpretive drawings, orientational diagrams, and diagnostic images. The 5th Edition features over 50 new dissection photos, many of which are taken from a distance to make them more recognizable in the lab setting. It also offers a more streamlined, user-friendly design, more clinical tips, and a companion CD-ROM with seven anatomical animations.
- Displays x-ray, MR, and CT images next to corresponding dissections, teaching readers to recognize anatomic structures in diagnostic images.
- Helps readers differentiate between similar structures on specimens (ie. veins, arteries, and nerves) with interpretive drawings.
- Offers orientational diagrams that make it easier to relate the dissections in the text to real experiences in the lab.
- Provides an unobstructed view of the artwork by using a numbered labeling system, which also allows readers to self-test by covering up the key and identifying each numbered structure.
- Includes over 50 new dissections photos, many of which are taken from a distance to make them more recognizable in the lab setting.
- Features a redesigned page layout that correlates illustrations, headings, and labels with more clarity.
- Uses more distinctly color-coded chapters to improve accessibility.
- Makes it easy to locate dissection sites on real life models with 50 new 'locator' images (surface anatomy models).
- Adds 20 new clinical tips (300 in all) that are referenced with icons on each page and then listed at the end of each chapter.
- Moves the Systemic Review to the front of the book, adding a series of anatomical cross-sections.
- Offers a PC and Mac compatible CD-ROM with seven anatomical animations (hand, shoulder, knee, foot, hip, spine, and head & neck) in QuickTime format. Allows users to add and remove layers of skin, muscle, etc.
- rotate animations for a complete view from all angles
- turn labels on and off to test recognition skills
- export images to their hard drive
- test themselves with multiple-choice questions linked to each label as well as with a separate quiz function
- link to www.fleshandbones.com. Icons in the book refer readers to the animations at appropriate points.
Peter H. ABRAHAMS , MB BS, FRCS (Ed), FRCR
We have few authors as dynamic and entrepreneurial as Peter Abrahams. He combines a part-time Family Practitioner job, in a busy North London GP practice, with academic positions at Girton College and Kigezi School in Cambridge, in addition to numerous publishing activities (ranging from Editorial Board of Clinical Anatomy to Consultant on Inside the Human Body). He has been involved in the publication of numerous Mosby anatomy titles, in print and non-print formats, and took over the McMinn atlas in its last, fourth edition. He is an efficient, business-like author with a great delivery record.
Sandy C. MARKS Jr. BS, DDS, PhD
Sandy is a graduate with highest honours fromWashington and Lee University (B.S.1960, the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry (D.D.S. 1964) and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (Ph.D. in Anatomy 1968). He did postdoctoral training at the National Naval Medical Center and the National Institute of Dental Research before joining the Department of Anatomy at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 1970, where he is presently Professor of Cell Biology, Radiology and Surgery. He has taught anatomy, cell biology, neuroanatomy and embryology since 1965 and has been the North American Editor of the journal Clinical Anatomysince 1991. He is a founding member and former President of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists and has been an External Assessor and External Examiner in Anatomy for medical and dental students at the National University of Singapore and at the University of Malaya. He was brought on as U.S. co-author of the 4th edition of McMinn's Color Atlas of Human Anatomy, in a bid to improve the book's marketability in North America.
Ralph is now a freelance photographer, sculptor and restorer of vintage cars! Earlier in his career he was photographer at the Royal College of Surgeons, under the management of Bob McMinn. He owns the copyright to all images taken at the RCS at that time, and has in his possession copies of most of the photographs used in all the Mosby(-Wolfe) anatomy atlases published down the years…
