The new edition of this well-known text and atlas takes you from knowing human anatomical structures in the abstract to identifying human anatomy in a real body. It is the only text and atlas of gross anatomy that illustrates all structures using high-quality dissection photographs and clearly labeled line drawings for each photo. Plus, concise yet thorough text supports and explains all key human anatomy.
  • High-quality, richly colored dissection photographs showing structures most likely to be seen and tested in the lab improve your ability to recognize and interpret gross specimens accurately.
  • Interpretive line drawings next to every photograph let you test your knowledge by covering the labels.
  • Color-coding on interpretive artwork helps you differentiate among fat, muscle, ligament, etc.
  • Clinical Skills pages help you understand how to apply knowledge of gross anatomy to the clinical setting.
  • More clinical comments throughout the text further clarify anatomical drawings and photographs.
  • Cross sections added to the upper and lower limb sections increase your knowledge base.
  • Up to 50 new color photographs and new CAT scans and MRIs enhance your visual guidance.

Preface to fifth edition
This edition maintains the unique combination of concise yet comprehensive text with images of dissections, each undertaken to illustrate features described in the text. Typically the illustrations and text are grouped together on the left and right sides of self-contained spreads, making for easy cross-reference.
In this fifth edition we have been driven by a desire to improve the contents and enhance their relevance as new courses evolve. The text has been refined by remedying omissions and removing ambiguities. In addition, all the diagrams accompanying the dissections have been checked and, where necessary, amended to improve clarity and accuracy. Several free-standing diagrams, including those illustrating dermatomes, have been redrawn. The introductory pages for the chapters on the abdomen and back have been expanded and improved.
In many institutions changing educational approaches have resulted in the phasing out of traditional topographical anatomy courses that included dissection. In their place have appeared integrated courses which incorporate imaging and clinical anatomical relevance. We have responded to this trend by enhancing the radiographic content; for example, in the observation skills pages for the upper and lower limbs scans are accompanied by corresponding cadaver sections. New chest radiographs appear in the thorax chapter and several radiographs have been replaced by higher quality images. New material describing clinical correlations has been integrated throughout the text and none of the anatomical content of the fourth edition has been deleted.
The terminology conforms to the internationally agreed Terminologia Anatomica. In addition this edition possesses a list of “alternative terms”, including eponyms, which have been selected because they are used frequently. The larger font size for text introduced in the fourth edition has been retained and the font for figure labels changed.

Acknowledgements for all editions
The authors are indebted to Dr Waqar Bhatti, Professors R.S. Harris and A.R. Moody and to the Department of Radiology at Manchester University for the provision of radiographs, CT and MR scans.
Our families deserve a special mention, as without their untiring support and patience these editions would certainly not have come to publication.
We thank them all.
Preface to first edition
Despite the many anatomical atlases and textbooks currently available, there appeared to be a need for a book which combined the advantages of each of these forms of presentation. This book was conceived with the intention of filling that need. With a unique combination of photographs of dissections, accompanying diagrams and concise text, this volume aims to provide the student with a better understanding of human anatomy.
The basis of this work is the cadaver as seen in the dissecting room; therefore, reference to surface and radiological anatomy is minimal. Likewise, comments on the clinical and functional significance of selected anatomical structures are brief. However, comparison is made where appropriate between the anatomy of the living and that of the cadaver.
Each dissection was specially prepared and photographed to display only a few important features. However, since photographs of dissections are inherently difficult to interpret, each is accompanied by a guide in the form of a drawing. Each drawing is coloured and labelled to highlight the salient features of the dissection and is accompanied by axes to indicate the orientation of the specimen. Adjacent photographs often depict different stages of the same dissection to help the student construct a three-dimensional image.
The first chapter introduces anatomical terminology, provides general information about the basic tissues of the body, and includes overall views of selected systems. Because the six subsequent chapters describe anatomy primarily through dissection, a regional approach has been employed. Features of bones are described only when considering their related structures, especially muscles and joints; osteology is not considered in its own right. The internal structure of the ear and eye are beyond the scope of this book since the study of these topics requires microscopy; the anatomy of the brain and spinal cord are also excluded as they are usually taught in special courses.
The level of detail contained in this book is appropriate for current courses in topographical anatomy for medical and dental undergraduates. In addition, it will be of value to postgraduates and to students entering those professions allied to medicine in which anatomy is part of the curriculum.
The terminology employed is that which is most frequently used in clinical practice. Where appropriate, alternatives (such as those recommended in Nomina Anatomica ) are appended in brackets.
Preparation of the dissections and the text has occupied the authors for nearly five years. Our objective was to create a high quality and visually attractive anatomical work and we hope that the time and effort spent in its preparation is reflected in the finished product.

Human Anatomy User Guide

This book begins with a chapter on basic anatomical concepts. Then there are seven chapters, each with its own introduction, on the different regions of the body. Information is usually presented in dissection order, progressing from the surface to deeper structures. The limbs are described from proximal to distal with the joints considered last.

Texts and Photographs
Where possible the text and photographs are arranged on self-contained two-page spreads, so that the reader can locate relevant illustrations without turning a page. In these cases, the references in brackets appear as “(Fig.x.xx)”. Additional cross-references to illustrations or text are given as “(see Fig. y.yy)” or “(see page z)” which direct the reader to a different spread.

Accompanying Diagrams
Adjacent to each photograph is a line diagram in which colo
