SUMMARY

The 27th Edition ofStedman's Medical Dictionaryreflects the thorough revision and critical review by 44 medical consultants, as well as a team of skilled editors and expert lexicographers. Readers will note extensive updates in all specialties, though most notably in the terminology of genetics, oncology, pediatrics, pulmonology, emergency medicine, bacteriology, and laboratory medicine. Additionally, in accordance with the nomenclature approved by the International Federation of Associations of Anatomists, gross anatomy and neuroanatomy terminology now reflects the Terminologia Anatomica (TA), while still retaining the Nomina Anatomica Latin terms for histology and embryology. Anatomical definitions are found where readers are most likely to look -- at the English translations of the Latin terms. This 27th Edition further includes veterinary medicine terms, now focused solely on terminology relevant to human medicine. Stedman's 27th contains more than 1,050 images, many of which are in color and new to the Stedman's Dictionary, and serve to expand and clarify the meanings of terms. Every image was reviewed by specialty consultants for clarity, scientific accuracy, and currency. Numerous tables present complicated information in schematic format to facilitate learning. There are also 64 pages of full-color anatomy and diagnostic medicine images, as well as a 32-page quick-reference anatomical atlas showcasing art from 'adam.com.' A complete index containing the names of each structure accompanies these richly labeled illustrations.Brand newto the 27th Edition, the'Genus Finder'speeds the search for definitions of genus species names by spelling out the genus abbreviations under the species names. Along with the new features in the 27th, readers will continue to benefit from features found in previous editions, including: 'High Profile Terms, ' 131 concepts that so profoundly affect the practice of medicine that they warrant more than the standard dictionary definition 'Word Finder,' a long list of multiple-term entries in the front of the book to speed readers to the definition they seek Cross-References, printed in blue, to point readers quickly to the preferred term where the definition appears 'Combining Forms,' highlighted to help readers build their medical vocabulary 'Precision Thumb Tabs,' which appear at the edge of every page, constantly orienting the reader in the book and speeding the search Readers will find Stedman's 27th more accessible, informative, and comprehensive than before. It is the perfect guide for those who wish to speak and write more precisely about health care.Stedman, Thomas Lathrop is the author of 'Stedman's Medical Dictionary Illustrated in Color', published 2000 under ISBN 9780683400076 and ISBN 068340007X.
