McMinns Color Atlas of Human Anatomy, 5th edition, CD-ROM
Peter H. Abrahams and Ralph T. Hutchings
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.
