Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Apr 26, 2010 - Medical - 488 pages
Written by one of the great teachers of Anatomy, this 50th anniversary edition of Clinical Anatomy continues to provide thousands of medical students, postgraduate trainees and junior doctors across the world with essential anatomical information within a clinical setting. It is particularly appropriate for those preparing for the Membership of the Royal College of Surgeon's Exam.

For this new edition, Professor Harold Ellis is joined, for the first time, by a co-author. Professor Vishy Mahadevan is Barber's Company Reader in Anatomy at the Royal College of Surgeons, a renowned teacher of surgical trainees and is also an examiner for the MRCS Exam. Together they provide a detailed, easy-to-follow structured text suitable for anatomy students and trainees of all levels.

Fully revised and updated, this new edition features new and re-drawn illustrations, new images of normal anatomy (radiographs, CTs and NMRs) to aid understanding, a revised neuroanatomy section to provide greater clarity and an expansion of the lower limb section.

In order to provide revision support, Clinical Anatomy has its own website featuring digital flashcards of all the images found in the textbook available to download for free at www.ellisclinicalanatomy.co.uk
