Gray's Clinical Photographic Dissector of the Human Body pdf

Gray’s Clinical Photographic Dissector of the Human Body, by Drs. Marios Loukas, Brion Benninger, and R. Shane Tubbs, helps you take a clinical approach to the study of anatomy.

This unique dissection guide uses full-color photographs rather than anatomical drawings to orient you more quickly in the lab, and points out the clinical significance of each structure and every dissection you make.

You will also find valuable information on several emergency procedures used today to further reinforce the clinical correlations. With 1,300+ photos, this resource is a great way to learn or review anatomy and its relevance to clinical practice.

  • Consult this title on your favorite e-reader, conduct rapid searches, and adjust font sizes for optimal readability. Compatible with Kindle®, nook®, and other popular devices.
  • Easily relate anatomy structures to clinical conditions and procedures.
  • Perform dissections with confidence by comparing the 1,350 full-color photographs to the cadavers you study.
  • Understand the pertinent anatomy for 18 common emergency procedures such as lumbar puncture and knee aspiration.
  • Depend on the same level of accuracy and thoroughness that have made Gray’s Anatomy the defining reference on this complex subject, thanks to the expertise of Dr. Marios Loukas, a leading authority in the worldof clinical anatomy.

Review – Gray’s Clinical Photographic Dissector

“I wish I could have used this book when I took gross anatomy. It is a welcome combination of the two-book system my peers and I used — one photographic atlas and one diagrammatic dissector. As medical students, we live on details and technicalities. When I took anatomy, we spent an inappropriate amount of time trying to match the drawings of anatomical structures to the cadaver at hand.

One of the strengths of this atlas is a well-defined ratio of text to photographs. While traditional dissectors rely on dotted lines and artistic renderings, this photographic dissector offers a follow-along flip-book to dissection.  This photographic dissector is superior to both the standard dissector and the photographic atlas in the way that each section carefully maintains an anatomical landmark in each stepwise dissection photograph, helping in students’ orientation to the evolving dissection views.

I hope the second edition of this dissector incorporates some of the traditional diagrammatic methods. While I would still choose this dissector over any of the others available, as photographs are infinitely superior to artist renditions, I would still benefit from the occasional overlaid guidelines, instructional arrows, or other schematics adding instructional graphics to some of the more challenging dissections.

Lastly, while there are lengthy descriptions and numerous labels in each image, I hope that the second edition will include bolding of the terms that are the new focus in the image sequence.”- Mike Green, BS, BFA(Midwestern University) Doody Review: 82/100
