It's time to see your body as you've never seen it before. It's time to venture Inside the Body with the latest imaging techniques to discover the remarkable inner workings of the human anatomy. Our photographic journey begins with individual cells - the tiny building blocks of life. We see the extraordinary patterns created by red blood cells, magnified thousands of times. Astonishing images then reveal the startling architecture of tissues and complex organs that make up the body's network of systems. Finally, pictures shed light on some of the mysteries that surround our brain and senses. Informative text explains just how these ground-breaking images have been taken and what they represent, making this book a truly unique reference tool.
