Praise for this book: Impressive...remarkably effective. - Journal of the American Medical Association [Five stars] A brilliant masterpiece, filled with anatomical illustrations of great accuracy, appropriately labeled and aesthetically appealing. - Doody's Review Atlas of Anatomy contains everything students need to successfully tackle the daunting challenges of anatomy. Complete with exquisite, full-color illustrations by award-winning artists Markus Voll and Karl Wesker, the atlas is organized to lead students step-by-step through each region of the body. Each region opens with the foundational skeletal framework. The subsequent chapters build upon this foundation, adding the muscles, then organs, then vessels, then nerves, and finally presenting topographic anatomy for a comprehensive view. Each unit closes with surface anatomy accompanied by questions that ask the reader to apply knowledge learned for the real-life physical examination of patients.

Reviews

Have you ever pulled out an atlas of anatomy to show a patient a tendon or muscle that is a source of his symptoms? Or have you referred back to your anatomy text from school to remind yourself of the relationship between structures? Are you a student taking anatomy? Then the newly published book from Thieme, "Atlas of Anatomy," and its interactive website, www.winkingskull.com, should be on your reference shelf and bookmarked on your computer. The drawings appear to leap off the page in three rather than two dimensions... I was blown away by the website... It is engagingly interactive...highly recommend[ed].--ADVANCE for Physical Therapists and PT Assistants[Five stars] A brilliant masterpiece, filled with anatomical illustrations of great accuracy, appropriately labeled...aesthetically appealing...flows logically and systematically through the regions of the body...indispensable...for medical students...and medical residents in surgical specialties--Doody's ReviewOf the several atlases that are available to the student, the [atlas] is one of the most useful and complete. Its 623 pages not only cover the gross anatomy of the human body, but also have extensive illustrations encompassing the peripheral innervation, lymphatics, arterial supply, and venous drainage of the various regions... Many radiographic images are included when appropriate to integrate the anatomy with the radiology. In addition, surface anatomy illustrations and clinical correlation boxes are generously sprinkled throughout the atlas to integrate this information with future clinical experiences. The completeness of this Atlas along with its presentation, clarity of illustrations, and content brings everything together for the student. This Atlas is indeed a powerful learning tool for students. It will be utilitzed by the students in gross anatomy and neuroanatomy, and by the clerks in surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, radiology, and neurology. Finally, this is an atlas that they will return to as first-year residents when they review specific regions of the human body for their training.--Clinical AnatomyA fine addition to anatomical atlas classics...organized...with learners in mind. Especially useful are the musculature tables, which summarize origins, insertions, innervations, and actions. The combination of anatomical and clinical information makes this book a sold addition to collections that support courses in human anatomy.--ChoiceRichly illustrated with color drawings and multiple tables. It covers the entire body including the back, thorax, abdomen/pelvis, upper limb, lower limb, head and neck, and neuroanatomy.--American Journal of Neuroradiology "Have you ever pulled out an atlas of anatomy to show a patient a tendon or muscle that is a source of his symptoms?
