This text on gross anatomy can be used in a variety of professional programs, such as medical, dental, and chiropractic programs, by students in traditional, systemic, combined traditional/systemic, and problem-based curricula. It will be particularly useful to students when lectures and labs in gross anatomy are minimal. An opening chapter, expanded for this edition, covers principles of anatomy, imaging, and an overview of body systems, with some material moved from other chapters. Each regional anatomy chapter consists of a conceptual overview, material on regional and surface anatomy, and clinical cases. The art program features about 1,000 color anatomical illustrations by Richard Tibbetts and Paul Richardson, plus b&w diagnostic images, and labeled color photos of live models. This edition highlights clinical material throughout the chapters, rather than only at the end. Other new features include a restructured index, chapter tables of contents, and diagnostic images from emerging technologies. Chapter questions have been moved to a companion web site.
