PostSubject: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Atlas of Anatomy   Wed Sep 14, 2011 11:42 am

Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), 08-JUN-09, Volume
301, Issue 17, Jason M. Organ, PhD, Center for Anatomical Science and
Education, Department of Surgery, Saint Louis University School of
Medicine, St. Louis, MO -- "As the number of anatomy curriculum hours
continues to decrease at many major medical schools, Tank and Gest
recognized the need for a new anatomical atlas emphasizing those
structures most likely to be taught in the modern curricula. Provided
with the unique opportunity to build an original atlas from the ground
up, the authors of this fine volume did not disappoint. Drawing on their
combined 60 years of classroom teaching experience, they designed an
atlas with a strong approach to presenting anatomical information in a
sequence not only logical from a teaching perspective but highly
accessible to students as well. In fact, the authors' primary intent in
their design was to create images that are faster and easier for
students to use, because 'speed and ease of use have become critical
needs in the era of compressed anatomical curricula'... "In each
section, the authors take their audience on a journey from outside in,
beginning with surface anatomy and ultimately progressing deeper through
different dissection fields. This approach, coupled with consistent
viewpoints for the images (ie, specimens are always placed in anatomical
position, and perspectives are always directly anterior, posterior,
medial, or lateral), makes the information easily accessible to the
novice anatomy student and the not-so-novice instructor alike. "One
of the most striking differences between this atlas and its
contemporaries is the effective use of a ghosting technique in many of
the illustrations, wherein a structure passing behind another structure
is still visible through the structure in the foreground. The advantage
of this technique is that 3-dimensional relationships of important
structures-relationships often left to the imagination of the reader in
other atlases-can be appreciated in 2 dimensions...Some of the most
effective uses of this ghosting technique are found in the illustrations
of the inguinal region...Students often struggle to understand which
tissue layers of the anterior abdominal wall contribute to the
superficial and deep inguinal rings...This ghosting technique not only
allows Tank and Gest to show an external view of all 3 muscular layers
and the transversalis fascia (with the contents of the inguinal canal
appropriately illustrated) but also enables them to 'reverse' the image
and present an internal view of the same structures and their
3-dimensional relationships. Indeed, the illustrations and labeling of
the pectineal and lacunar ligaments are among the best I have seen, and I
often found myself reaching for this atlas when students visited me
with questions outside of the dissection laboratory. "In addition to
the atlas, the authors and publisher offer a set of online supporting
products...For example, all of the illustrations are available in an
interactive, electronic format, enabling students to search images and
compare features across images. Students can also use the interactive
labeling exercises available online to test their individual knowledge
of anatomy in preparation for examinations. "In short, this is a
modern atlas constructed to complement a modern anatomy curriculum and
designed to meet the needs of modern, computer-s

Product Description
Endorsed by the Canadian Federation of Medical Students
(CFMS), Fédération des étudiants et des
étudiantes en médecine du Canada (FEMC) Featuring
more than 750 new, modern images, the Lippincott Williams &
Wilkins Atlas of Anatomy is a vibrantly colored regional atlas of human
anatomy offering an unprecedented combination of visual aesthetic appeal
and anatomical accuracy. Many student-friendly features set this atlas
apart from others on the market, including a unique art style featuring
bright colors, color coding of anatomical elements, judicious use of
labeling, and no extraneous text. Each plate teaches specific
structures and relationships-displayed using artistic techniques such as
"ghosting," layering, and color selectivity-providing immediate focus
and resulting in easier and faster comprehension. This unique pedagogy,
in combination with the atlas' beautiful art style, will make this new
anatomy atlas the preferred choice of teachers and students alike.
Packaged with the atlas is an online interactive atlas with all of the
images, including fully searchable legends and labels and "zoom and
compare" features. Also included are electronic flash cards that permit
students to test their knowledge of newly learned concepts and
