Also new to this edition are: end of chapter questions that follow the National Board test format; a focus on anatomical areas that are commonly traumatized due to auto accidents, gunshot and knife wounds; and greater emphasis on pediatric anatomy. Embryological explanations about congenital defects also have been added. Chapters are organized by body region, from body surfaces to deep structures.
