Following a logical structure, each chapter explains in a clear friendly manner the key knowledge expected of students. Improved diagrams with clear labelling and full colour illustrate key anatomical features bringing the text to life. Learning objectives introduce each dissection and clear step-by-step instructions make it easy to follow in the dissection lab.
Throughout the book new clinical application boxes and radiology images explain how anatomy relates to clinical medical practice. At the end of each part, multiple choice questions allow students to quickly review their knowledge before checking the answers in ‘Answers to MCQs’.
Student friendly and richly illustrated, this new edition of Cunningham’s brings expert anatomical teaching to the modern day student of medicine, dentistry and allied health sciences. Retaining the trustworthy authority of the previous editions, this sixteenth edition offers a contemporary account of this excellent practical anatomy book.
These well-known and popular manuals appear in their sixteenth edition in an entirely new format. The text has been redesigned to make it more accessible to the students, to highlight key terms and to set the dissection guide apart from the main text. Illustrations have been revised, with many improvements and new additions. The text has been expanded to include more explanations and new material o embryology, organogenesis and congenital malformations of clinical significance. New imaging and diagnostic techniques such as CT scanning are included as an introduction to the usefulness of these methods and to help the reader appreciate the close packing of the body’s various structures. The manuals provide a complete textbook for medical students, a feature increasingly necessary as the time available for teaching anatomy is cut back and the need for detailed anatomical information in many branches of clinical work increases.
