The Johns Hopkins Atlas of Human Functional Anatomy, fourth edition

With more than 200,000 copies sold, The Johns Hopkins Atlas of Human Functional Anatomy is a trusted and authoritative source of information about the human body for general readers and students at all levels. Now newly revised and expanded, the fourth edition offers more comprehensive coverage than ever. Included are:

• 226 color illustrations, depicting all organs and systems of the human body, by renowned medical artist Leon Schlossberg

• 29 chapters of descriptive text written by current and former faculty at one of the world's foremost medical institutions, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

• an index of plates and descriptions for quick identification of any structure, organ, or system

The fourth edition of the Atlas features seven new chapters and sixteen new plates, enhancing the treatment of the aorta, liver, thymus, breast, prostate, and hernias. Also new to this edition is a spectacularly detailed, two-page, full-color illustration of the interior of the male anatomy from head to thighs. As in previous editions, the description and explanation for each part of the anatomy are written by an expert in that particular field.
