A beautifully illustrated, one-stop resource that bridges all four anatomical sciences
Clinical Anatomy, Histology, Embryology and Neuroanatomy: An Integrated Textbook by Jamie Wikenheiser bridges all four anatomical sciences in one volume with clinically focused anatomical text and exceptional illustrations. The book fills a gap in the literature, serving as a one-stop resource for multiple courses and board-review preparation, and also provides an invaluable reference for professional practice. The primary goals of integrating the four sciences into one book are to enhance students’ understating of the subject matter, better prepare them for national exams, and most importantly—enable them to deliver optimal care to their future patients.
The introductory chapter includes clear explanations of anatomic terminology and an overview describing all systems of the body. The rest of the textbook is organized by region to better align with how most professional schools organize their curriculums, while also providing flexibility to fit alternate curriculums. Chapters on the Back, Thorax, Abdomen, Pelvis and Perineum, Lower Extremity, Upper Extremity, and Head and Neck regions are followed by multiple chapters focused on Neuroanatomy. Region-based chapters with multiple organs begin with an introduction to gross anatomy, followed by descriptions of the associated neurovasculature and lymphatic drainage. Development and the histology of organs is presented alongside the neurovasculature.
