6th, completely revised and enlarged edition of a classic:
Now with even greater clinical application!
Prof. Dr. Petra Köpf-Maier, Berlin
The classic edition (Latin nomenclature) – out of print
New clinically relevant illustrations
Expanded chapter on head and neck anatomy
Consistent use of the current Terminologia Anatomica
The 6th edition of Wolf-Heidegger's Atlas of Human Anatomy has been
further revised, expanded and updated by Professor Petra Köpf-Maier.
A well-established classic, the atlas has been renowned for the high quality of its illustrations since its inception; the more recent editions, however, have also received praise for their didactic structure and clinical approach.
All illustrations are in color and are complemented in a highly instructive manner by a generous number of anatomical sections and selected radiological images (ultrasound, CT scans, MRIs). Placing these side by side serves to develop and train the skills needed to interpret these images correctly.
This edition includes numerous new clinically relevant illustrations shown within their practical context, ranging from herniated discs and paralysis symptoms to the consequences of a stenosed portal vein.
The chapter on head and neck anatomy, which is of specific interest to dental students, has been expanded with new illustrations, such as the temporomandibular joint, the structure of teeth, or the toothless aged skull.
The atlas consistently employs the current Terminologia Anatomica. Furthermore, the most important eponyms are introduced since they form an important part of daily clinical communication.
Wolf-Heidegger's Atlas of Human Anatomy has been designed and crafted explicitly for students of human medicine and dentistry in their preclinical and linical years, but will also appeal to clinical practitioners, who will appreciate the illustrations' superb quality and beauty as well as their continuing relevance to daily practical decision-taking.
