The Human Body in Health and Disease is designed as a short course covering the basics of human anatomy and physiology with an emphasis on the mechanisms of disease. The book includes basic concepts of anatomy and physiology, integrated disease-related information, clinical applications, and terminology — all without excessive detail. It is written by an author team known for its clarity of presentation and outstanding illustration program.
This must-have manual for surgical residents and vascular surgery trainees is copiously illustrated with more than 250 original line drawings. The author presents in a step-by-step fashion the techniques for all common vascular reconstructions, basics of exposure and access, as well as invaluable technical pearls and tips. The text provides the surgical trainee with the opportunity to review and practice the necessary vascular reconstructions before entering the operating room. The illustrations and clear instructions make this a manual that is referred to again and again throughout the surgical residency.
The update of this classic text links basic concepts in neuroanatomy with clinical correlations. Highly readable and extensively illustrated, the new edition reflects the state-of-the-art in pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of neurological disorders. Discusses the latest advances in molecular and cellular biology in the context of neuroanatomy. The first edition of Correlative Neuroanatomy was the first book published in the Lange series by Dr. Jack Lange in 1945.
Neuroanatomy in Clinical Context, Ninth Edition provides everything the student needs to master the anatomy of the central nervous system, all in a clinical setting. Clear explanations; abundant MRI, CT, MRA, and MRV images; full-color photographs and illustrations; hundreds of review questions; and supplemental online resources combine to provide a sound anatomical base for integrating neurobiological and clinical concepts. In thus applying neuroanatomy clinically, the atlas ensures student preparedness for exams and for rotations. This authoritative approach—combined with such salutary features as full-color stained sections, extensive cranial nerve cross-referencing, and systems neurobiology coverage—sustains the legacy of this revolutionary teaching and learning tool as the neuroanatomy atlas.
New and hallmark features elucidate neuroanatomy and systems neurobiology for course success!
NEW! Chapter on Herniation Syndromes decodes the elegant relationship between brain injury and resulting deficit.
NEW! Clinical information integrated throughout the text is screened in blue for quick identification on the page.
NEW! Enhanced clinical images emphasize clarity and detail like never before, including full-color images replacing many in black and white, higher-resolution brain scans, and reprocessed spinal cord and brainstem images.
MRIs complement full-color anatomical illustrations, allowing for visualization of structures both as they appear to the unaided eye and on imaging studies.
Unique, full-color illustrations integrate clinical images of representative lesions with the corresponding deficits highlighted.
Full-color stained sections facilitate the easy identification of anatomical features.
Dozens of pathway drawings superimposed over MRIs connect structure with function of neural pathways.
Located on thePoint, this atlas’s companion website offers a variety of supplemental learning resources to maximize study and review time!
Question bank featuring over 280 USMLE-style and chapter-review style questions

Written by experienced and well-respected physicians and professors, this new all-color volume presents the ultrasonic topographical and pathotopographical anatomy of the body, including the head, neck, chest, anterolateral abdominal wall, abdominal organs, retroperitoneal space, male and female pelvises, and lower extremities.
Specific and non-specific ultrasonic symptoms are suggested for normal and abnormal developmental variants, diffuse and local pathotopographical anatomy. This color atlas contains comparative topographical and pathotopographical data and is the first manual of its kind for students and medical specialists in different areas, including those specializing in medical sonography. The original technology was tested at clinics in patients subjected to ultrasonic monitoring. Because of early detection there were no false-positive or false-negative results. The therapy was effective, and, in some cases, the use of the original method of “seagalography” (optometry and pulsemotorgraphy) has made it possible to develop new methods of treatment and/or to determine the optimal doses of drugs, as well as to develop effective drug complexes for treatment of a given pathology.
This important new volume will be valuable to physicians, junior physicians, medical residents, lecturers in medicine, and medical students alike, either as a textbook or as a reference. It is a must-have for any physician’s library.
How do you learn A&P best? Whatever your learning style…by looking, listening, or doing, or a little bit of each…the 2nd Edition of this innovative, multiplatform approach to anatomy & physiology is designed just for you.
Tackle a tough subject in bite-sized pieces. A seeming huge volume of information is organized into manageable sections to make complex concepts easy to understand and remember. You begin with an overview of the body, including its chemical and cellular structures, then progress to one-of-a-kind portrayals of each body system, grouped by function. A wealth of full-color illustrations, figures, sidebars, helpful hints, and easy-to-read descriptions make information crystal clear. Each unique page spread provides an entire unit of understanding, breaking down complex concepts into easy-to-grasp sections.

“The integration of graphics and text is very engaging for learners. Thompson silences the academic distractions found in traditional A&P textbooks and emphasizes all the ‘take away points’ in a concise and informative manner. The task of learning A&P is now less threatening.”
—Jason Johnson, Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology
“My students absolutely love the Thompson A&P book. It is concise and makes learning the material seem less daunting. It really hits all learning styles with the pictures, videos, text and workbook. I have seen a significant increase in student success since we implemented this book!”
—Shayna Turner RN, MS, Isabella Graham Hart School of Practical Nursing
“The numerous graphics are vivid and relevant allowing the student to focus on the concept rather than multiple paragraphs of reading. The “Life Lesson” inserts further engage the student by placing covered concepts into real-world situations. Understanding Anatomy & Physiology is both instructor and student friendly.”
