The term “Anatomy” comes from the ancient Greek it means “to dissect“. The human anatomy is divided into two subdivision macroscopic and microscopic anatomy. Human anatomy can be specifically defined as a corresponding basic medical science, which deals with the scientific study of morphology of human body. In easy words, human anatomy is the study of human body structure. Human anatomy provides a detail but valuable explanation of end to end concepts of human anatomy. It is composed of several types of cells which are together forms tissues and then organ systems. The study of the human body includes anatomy, physiology and histology. Physiology emphasizes on the organs and systems of the human body and their functions. In this book all the topics are fully explained in such manner which are easily read and learn.
HUMAN ANATOMY: A CLINICALLY ORIENTATED APPROACH, part of the Illustrated Colour Text series, provides a highly illustrated short account of human anatomy for medical and other health science students. The illustrations include a high proportion of cadavaric photographs prepared especially for this book. The organisation of the book follows the normal regional approach; the text concentrates on the clinical relevance of the anatomy. Succint and highly illlustrated account of the subject suitable for courses that have restricted anatomical teaching. Illustations include a larage number of cadavaric photographs from specially prepared dissections Text emphasises clinical relevance of subject Now in the easy to access Illustrated Colour Text format More clinical material highlighted in boxes New chapter on anatomy of the breast
An understanding of the structure and function of the human body is vital for anyone studying the medical and health sciences. In this book, Leslie Klenerman provides a clear and accessible overview of the main systems of the human anatomy, illustrated with a number of clear explanatory diagrams.
"Anatomia clavus et clavis medicinae est." Anatomy is a fundamental science that studies the structure of the human body from ancient times. Over time, the discipline constantly expands with recent progress that has been produced in researching the human body. So, new methods of researching were incorporated in the anatomy development: plastic materials injections, plastination, computed techniques of sectional bodies, and embryology. Anatomic sections like macroscopic, mesoscopic, microscopic, and public anatomies; radiologic anatomy; computed anatomy; radiologic anatomies; and clinical anatomy contribute to realize a very complex discipline that represents the base of learning medicine.
The present volumes endeavour to integrate different subdivisions of anatomy to enable students of anatomy to learn all the relevant aspects of a topic like osteology, soft parts, development and clinical application at the same time. It is a common knowledge that bone carries our anatomy and forms its central part. As such, each topic begins with a brief description of the skeletal framework of the region followed by the description of the surrounding soft parts. The study of soft parts does not merely lie in parroting of relations of structures but it essentially relies on visualization of parts and regions based on dissection and diagrams. Anatomy, if not understood in its proper perspective and only memorised in parts, tends to be forgotten. Anatomy per se is a visual science and the best methods of visual recall of structural interrelationship are simple diagrams. Line diagrams which can be easily reproduced constitute an important feature of the book. Besides, this book is profusely illustrated. Every mutual relationship of soft structures has been explained by well-placed diagrams. It is widely recognised that anatomy can be made interesting, easy to understand and assimilate by dealing with its clinical application. At the end of each topic under the heading Clinical Application, close relationships existing between the regional anatomy and clinical medicine are explained. Thus, the book is meant to be very useful to the students during their clinical years also. It is hoped that the book will be highly useful for students of M.B.B.S.
This readable and succinct book provides a means for understanding the exciting underlying scientific principles on anatomy rather than setting forth an overwhelming list of facts for memorization. This landmark text is the first of its kind to take into account the revolutionary advances in developmental biology, engineering, evolutionary biology, and comparative morphology. Key features: Only text to focus on principles of body construction from their developmental, functional, comparative, and evolutionary underpinnings, rather than forcing memorization of excruciating anatomical details Engagingly written by a distinguished, award-winning, and internationally renowned medical doctor, researcher, author, and educator Provides an exciting alternative to "naming of the parts" books traditionally used to teach human anatomy Offers a fresh, yet eminently logical organization around four key concepts: developmental bases, comparative relationships, functional adaptations, and evolution Exquisitely and expansively illustrated with 100 all original photographs and special exploded diagrams highlighting important concepts
Students learn best when they can relate what they are studying to familiar issues, problems, and experiences, and Introduction to Human Anatomy and Physiology, 4th Edition does just that. With a clear and concise focus on anatomy and physiology, this new edition explains the normal structure of the human body and how it functions to maintain a state of balance and health — and covers need-to-know principles in an easy-to-understand manner. It focuses on how tissues, organs, and body systems work together to carry out activities such as maintaining body temperature, regulating blood pressure, learning, and responding to stress. Completely updated with a brand new art program, this engaging, user-friendly text clarifies concepts that are often difficult for various career-level health professions students to grasp through reading only.
