Summary

Summary

Anatomy at a Glance is a concise, well-illustrated and accessible anatomy textbook. The book is designed to conform to the new guidelines for medical school anatomy courses, and the authors have focussed on the core details required in current medical teaching.

Anatomy at a Glance follows the now familiar, easy-to-use double page spread format of the at a Glance series. Each topic is presented with key facts and accompanied by clear and informative colour line diagrams, radiographs, CT and MRI scans. The content is both systematic and regional, so that the complete course of major nerves and blood vessels are described as well as their regional relationships. Clinical notes are also included where relevant.

Anatomy at a Glance fits the budget and reading time of medical students and junior doctors. It can be used either as primary or supplementary reading in a lecture-based course, or for exam preparation.
