Atlas of Anatomy

Price: $42.00



The Atlas of Anatomy for Allied Health is the outgrowth of Dr. David Ward’s anatomy & physiology instruction and his expertise in photography and photomicroscopy. The third edition is a major revision. The Atlas is expanded, reorganized and includes many new photographs and illustrations, including photographs of cadaver material. There is a new introductory section: Overview of Anatomy. Each subsequent section is reorganized and expanded to maintain the theme of “overview to detail.”

  • The overall goal of the Atlas is to provide a compact and integrated reference of gross and microscopic anatomy for pre-nursing and other allied health students.
  • The Atlas is also designed to be used as a primary guide or as a supplement to laboratory exercises in anatomy.
  • Based on four-color photographs and illustrations of anatomical models, cadaver material, specimens and histological material from anatomy labs.
  • Each page focuses on a specific topic, is clean and simple in design, and parallels the organization of anatomy and anatomy/physiology textbooks.
  • Includes brilliant four-color photomicrographs with a wide range of magnification using fluorescence, darkfield, polarized light, and standard brightfield microscopy.
  • The Atlas includes a comprehensive index of all structures labeled in the four-color photographs and illustrations.
