High Yield Gross Anatomy 4th Edition PDF
9.57 MB PDF
High-Yield Gross Anatomy addresses many of the recurring clinical themes of the USMLE Step 1. The information presented in this text prepares you to handle not only the clinical vignettes found on the USMLE Step 1, but also the questions concerning basic gross anatomy concepts. Like the USMLE Step 1, the discussions are comprehensively illustrated with a combination of drawings, MRIs, CT scans, radiographs, and cross-sectional anatomy. In addition, High-Yield Gross Anatomy directly addresses clinical issues and common clinical techniques (e.g., liver biopsy, tracheostomy, and lumbar puncture) that require knowledge of basic gross anatomy to deduce the correct answer.
For High-Yield Gross Anatomy, Fourth Edition, Dr. Thomas Louis has again contributed his considerable gross anatomy teaching experience to improve and narrow the focus of the book. Dr. Louis has taught gross anatomy for about 30 years in both cadaver-dissection and computer-assisted distance-learning gross anatomy courses. He has been a leader in developing computer-assisted distance learning at the Brody School of Medicine and has received national recognition for his efforts.
Dr. Louis used High-Yield Gross Anatomy in his physician assistant gross anatomy course for 4 years with excellent success and supplemented the clinical anatomy presented in the book with critical basic anatomy figures and diagrams to assist students in learning the gross anatomy relationships of these clinically relevant areas. Dr. Louis and I have added some of these figures and diagrams to further enhance your understanding. In addition, Dr. Louis has compiled a plethora of clinical vignettes, many of which are included in this edition.
I would like to thank Dr. Edward A. Monaco, III, for his suggestions and contributions to many of the chapters (especially the chapters on the Lymphatic System and Eye). Dr. Monaco has a PhD in Neuroscience from SUNY Upstate Medical University and is currently completing his medical studies at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City.
