The world's most trusted clinically focused anatomy text! Renowned for comprehensive coverage, the best-selling Clinically Oriented Anatomy guides students from initial anatomy and foundational science courses through clinical training and practice. The eighth edition reflects significant new information and updates and maintains the highest standards for scientific and clinical accuracy. Comprehensive updates reflect changes in the clinical application of anatomy as well as new imaging technologies, focusing on the anatomy that students need to know. Extensively revised "Clinical Blue Boxes" explore the practical applications of anatomy, and helpful icons distinguish the type of clinical information covered in each. Clinically relevant anatomy focuses on physical diagnosis, interpretation of diagnostic imaging, and understanding the anatomical basis of emergency medicine and general surgery. Insightfully rendered, anatomically accurate illustrations, with updates throughout , make this book an aesthetically rewarding learning resource. Combined with many photographs and medical images, these stunning visuals facilitate comprehension of anatomical concepts and retention of "mental images" of anatomical structures. New and updated medical imaging and integrated surface anatomy within each chapter demonstrates the relationship between anatomy, physical examination, and diagnosis. Expanded "Overview and Basic Concepts" chapter includes functional systemic anatomy summaries and introduces approaches to studying anatomy, terminology, imaging, and more. Inclusion of new sections describing the enteric nervous system (considered by some as a "second brain") and its unique role in the innervation of the digestive system gives students cutting-edge insight into this significant scientific discovery. A more realistic approach to the musculoskeletal system explores the action and use of muscles and muscle groups in daily activities, emphasizing gait and grip. "Bottom Line" boxes summarize information to facilitate ongoing review and underscore the big-picture viewpoint. Clinical Blue Box animations, case studies, and interactive multiple-choice questions online at thePoint.lww.com facilitate review and self-testing.

This heart anatomy book describes the cardiac development and cardiac anatomy in the development of the adult heart, and is illustrated by numerous images and examples. It contains 550 images of dissected embryo and adult hearts, obtained through the dissection and photography of 235 hearts. It has been designed to allow the rapid understanding of the key concepts and that everything should be clearly and graphically explained in one book. This is an atlas of cardiac development and anatomy of the human heart which distinguishes itself with the use of 550 images of embryonic, fetal and adult hearts and using text that is logical and concise. All the mentioned anatomical structures are shown with the use of suggestive dissection images to emphasize the details and the overall location. All the images have detailed comments, while clinical implications are suggested. The dissections of different hearts exemplify the variability of the cardiac structures. The electron and optical microscopy images are sharp and provide great fidelity. The arterial molds obtained using methyl methacrylate are illustrative and the pictures use suggestive angles. The dissections were made on human normal and pathological hearts of different ages, increasing the clinical utility of the material contained within.

The team behind this book were brought together by their connection to a single, remarkable place: the dissection facilities of the Human Anatomy Teaching Group at the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience, University of Cambridge. Here, anatomy is taught through human cadaveric dissection and applied anatomy sessions to first and second year medical students. Today's undergraduates benefit from a rich heritage of anatomical teaching and learning in Cambridge. 2016 marks the 300th anniversary of the establishment of the first Anatomical School at the University, whilst dissection within the Cambridge colleges dates back to the first half of the sixteenth century. Cambridge is one of a decreasing number of medical schools where undergraduates learn anatomy primarily through hands-on dissection. Our programme would not be possible without the unparalleled generosity of those who donate their bodies for anatomical teaching and research. Students' experiences of dissection remain with them throughout their medical careers, shaping their interactions with patients.Not only do they acquire a detailed understanding of the structure of the human body along with anatomical variations, but a dissection-based teaching programme also encourages the development of other key professional skills such as respect and empathy, teamwork and communication, haptic discrimination and manual dexterity. This book is therefore both a tribute both to the remarkable altruism of our donors to whom we are indebted, and to the significant difference that good anatomical knowledge makes to patient care. This book was originally conceived to help students navigate the perplexing language of anatomy, especially for those who have not previously studied Latin or Greek. However, we quickly realised the potential of an illustrated guide as an aid for all students learning the structure and function of the human body, as well as its likely appeal to a wider public. Together, the authors bring to the project a range of expertise in fields encompassing surgery, history, linguistics, medical illustration and, of course, human anatomy.

Fully updated with the latest scientific research, the book presents a unique 'whole systems' view of myofascial/locomotor anatomy in which the body-wide connections among the muscles within the fascial net are described in detail. Using the metaphor of railway or train lines, the book explains how patterns of strain communicate through the myofascial 'webbing', contributing to movement stability and postural compensation. Written in the clear and accessible style that characterised the success of previous editions, the book guides the reader in the effective application of the Anatomy Trains theory via the use of abundant diagrams, photographs and educational film sequences on an associated website (www.myersmyofascialmeridians.com). Anatomy Trains: Myofascial Meridians for Manual and Movement Therapists will be ideal for all those professionals who have an interest in human movement: massage therapists, structural integration practitioners, craniosacral therapists, yoga teachers, osteopaths, manual therapists, physiotherapists, athletic trainers, personal trainers, dance and movement teachers, chiropractors and acupuncturists. ""Anatomy Trains" is certainly not devoid of personality. It is this personality combined with a non-scientific writing style, yet supported clearly with scientific references, that makes or breaks the book as a reader. If approached with an open mind then there is a clear working theory that flows throughout the text and even now in its 3rd edition, the book appears novel and rogue.

Have you ever wondered why our bodies look and work and fail the way they do? One of the world's leading experts in evolutionary history, Neil Shubin reveals the secrets of our biology: why if we want to understand our limbs we should take a close look at Tiktaalik, the first fish capable of doing a push-up; why if we want to know why we hiccup, the answer is in the way fish breathe; and why it is that fish teeth are surprisingly similar to human breasts.

All current modalities will be represented including MRI, CT, CT and MR myelography, perfusion and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), spinal CT and MR angiography, digital subtraction angiography (DSA), spectroscopy, and dynamic imaging. Plain films and fluoroscopic images will be included as well. Developmental anatomy, fetal MRI, and spinal anatomy of the newborn with ultrasound is also covered. Gross anatomical photographs of cadaveric specimens and correlative color drawings further enhance understanding of the complex spinal matrix and vasculature.Written by two neuroradiologists and an anatomist who are deeply involved in medical education, the goal is to offer an extensive multimodality atlas of manageable size to be used as a learning tool in the classroom or clinical reference at the workstation or in the office.The text is minimal; the hallmark of the book will be sharp, beautiful images with detailed anatomic labeling-many acquired with newly developed advanced techniques that allow visualization of structures not possible with routine imaging. According to Dr. Borden, the addition of these images will elevate a conventional anatomic spine atlas (of which there are several) to one at the cutting edge of technology-an atlas for the 21st century, which should have a long shelf life since anatomy doesn't change.

Taking a uniquely holistic approach, this book explores how the psoas affects the health of the body, mind, and spirit: Physically, as the only muscle that connects the upper and lower body Emotionally, as a messenger to and from the brain and a vessel of deeply rooted feelings Spiritually, as an integrator within the root of the lower chakras, subtly affecting the flow of life energy throughout the body Understanding and working with the psoas can help: Alleviate lower back pain Strengthen the core Correct posture Reduce trauma Open energy channels No matter our level of fitness or flexibility, how we use the psoas and take care of it is crucial to our life experience. With detailed illustrations and key stretching and strengthening exercises, including complete chapters on the role of the psoas in Pilates and yoga, The Vital Psoas shows readers how to release this muscle to create balance, harmony, and freedom of movement.
