General Anatomy-Principles and Applications is the first book published from the An@tomedia modular learning resource. Designed as an introduction to the principles of anatomy, General Anatomy ensures complete understanding of the foundations of anatomical knowledge and its practical orientation.
An@tomedia: General Anatomy - Principles and Applications integrates both regions and systems in a concise and easily understandable text. This is a practically orientated book that introduces general anatomy concepts to medical, nursing and allied health students. Containing essential information for immediate comprehension of anatomical concepts and principles, over 700 clear illustrations, diagrams and real pictures of dissections further assist clinical understanding.
