The Biggest Breakthrough in Student Anatomy Texts Since 1858! Since the first publication of Gray's Anatomy in 1858, its practical approach and outstanding artwork have helped it become the best-selling anatomy book of all time. Now, Churchill Livingstone is proud to launch this completely new addition to the Gray's Anatomy family that is specifically tailored to meet the needs of today's anatomy students. Meticulous planning. Written by a team of authors with a wealth of diverse teaching and clinical experience, Gray's Anatomy for Students is carefully crafted to concisely cover the material taught in contemporary anatomy courses. An international advisory board, comprised of more than 100 anatomy instructors, ensures that the book is accurate, up to date, and easy to use. All-new, stunning artwork. More than 1,000 original and innovative illustrations describe and explain anatomical features with unrivalled clarity. Consistent use of color throughout makes body structures easy to locate and remember from illustration to illustration. In addition, over 300 photographs and radiological images depict surface anatomy and common clinical applications of anatomical knowledge. Clear organization. Following a regional approach suitable for any curriculum, Gray's Anatomy for Students contains chapters on the back, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and perineum, lower limb, upper limb, and head and neck. In each chapter... * Conceptual overviews review the body region and summarize the functions of its component parts, their relationship to other body organs, and other key features. * Regional anatomy details the key structures needed to fully grasp the anatomy, and integrates relevant clinical information to expand students' understanding. * Surface anatomy correlates externally visible features with interior anatomy. * Clinical cases and questions demonstrate real-life applications of anatomical knowledge and allow students to test their own understanding. Radiographs illustrate relevant clinical situations. Online resource. Gray's Anatomy for Students is also available online at studentconsult.com in a format that allows users to conduct advanced searches and add highlights, bookmarks, and personal notes. A complete image bank makes it possible to download all of the illustrations for use in electronic presentations and a full test bank facilitates study and self-assessment.
