Practical Anatomy is designed to enable novice anatomists to grasp the biological background of the human anatomy while understanding its complexity within the clinical context.
As a guide to the dissection of the human cadaver, it provides an account of the biological and systemic foundations of the human body.
In keeping with the tradition of its predecessor this revised edition is primarily aimed at undergraduate allied health sciences and medical students who are encountering dissection for the first time and are intimidated by the volume of information to be digested.
In addition, some dissections of more complex regions of the anatomy have been integrated into the text for more advanced students.
This version has built on the solid foundation of the first edition of Practical Anatomy and Man’s Anatomy, incorporating all the features unique to these texts while updating the methodology and including the latest anatomical terminology as outlined in the Terminologia Anatomica.
The text and illustrations have been simplified to provide a clear, concise and accessible dissection guide.
