Lippincott Williams – Wilkins; 7th edition
This atlas; “Color Atlas of Anatomy: A Photographic Study of the Human Body 7th edition” (PDF) features full-color photographs of actual cadaver dissections; with accompanying schematic drawings and diagnostic photos. The photographs depict anatomic structures with a realism unmatched by illustrations in traditional atlases and show medical students specimens as they will appear in the dissection lab.
Chapters are organized by region in order of standard dissection; with structures presented both in a systemic manner; from deep to surface; and in a regional manner.
This latest 7th edition has additional clinical imaging; including CTs; MRIs; and endoscopic techniques. New graphics include clinically relevant nerve and vessel varieties and antagonistic muscle functions. Many older pictures and images have been replaced with new; high-resolution images. Older black-and-white dissection photographs have been replaced with color photography.
