About this book

Based on 25 years experience, Saladin offers a teaching system that will both motivate and enable students to understand and appreciate the wonders of human anatomy. The necessary information is structured around a consistent and unique framework of pedagogical aids, with diagrams digitally rendered for an accurate 3-D representation of human anatomy. There are also full-colour photographs of dissected human cadavers for comparison. Each chapter is broken down into five or six easily digestible sections, complete with objectives, and insights into clinical applications.
