"A wonderful book, very appropriate, written with extremely good, didactic and smart illustrations! Clinical anatomy at its best!" - Dr Ludmilla Stane, Institute for Anatomy, Dusseldorf.
The publication of this new textbook in 2005 represented a major advance in the integration of anatomy teaching with the study of clinical medicine. This new edition builds on this well-received approach, bringing the content entirely up to date with increased emphasis on the conditions most commonly encountered by medical students and junior clinicians in training.
Structured by body region, each chapter includes plentiful clinical photographs and images supplementing the high-quality anatomical diagrams, using the best modality to demonstrate anatomical relevance. Highlighted descriptions of clinical relevance emphasise the integrated approach so central to current teaching practice, and facilitated by the wealth of both clinical and anatomical experience of the distinguished author team.
