For the first time, the more than 900 photomicrographs are available digitally in an interactive atlas on CD, offering images available for download with zoom capability. The new edition of this veterinary-specific histology atlas provides veterinary and veterinary technician students with an essential pictorial resource for interpreting histologic preparations.
Clinical correlationsthroughout the text demonstrate clinical applications and reinforce the idea that histology is pertinent not only to pathology and physiology, but in fact comprises one of the essential bases of clinical practice.
New! "Pathological Considerations" section at the end of each chapter.
Helpful tables providean at-a-glance summary statement of key points.
Bolded key terms, bulleted lists and chapter summariesemphasize the "need to know" information in every chapter.
A combination of USMLE-style questions and image based questions in each chapter.
For more than three decades, Junqueira's Basic Histology has been unmatched in its ability to explain the function of cell and tissue structure in the human body. Updated to reflect the latest research in the field, and enhanced with more than 1,000 illustrations, most in full-color, the Fourteenth Edition reflects the most comprehensive and modern approach to understanding medical histology available anywhere. This well-regarded classic is distinguished by chapters focusing on the cytoplasmic and nuclear compartment of the cell, the four basic tissues that form the organs, and each organ system.
In response to reader demand, the legends are now concise, stand-alone summaries of the illustrations. Applauded for its visual appeal, Junqueira’s is enhanced by full-color micrographs that comprise a complete atlas of tissue sections. These state-of-the-art micrographs highlight the important features of every tissue and organ in the human body, while full-color, easy-to-understand drawings provide just the right level of detail necessary to clarify the text and make learning easier.
• Presents the major systems of the human body through scanning and transmission electron microscope images
• Has images prepared almost exclusively from human tissues
• Includes electron micrographs of common pathologies such as fibrotic and emphysemic lung, kidney stones, sickle cell anemia, and skin parasites
• Contains sets of 3D images in most chapters
The publication first elaborates on the techniques used in the study of cells and tissues, cell and cell division, and epithelia. Discussions focus on the qualitative and quantitative methods for the identification of the composition of cells and tissues, surface membrane of the cell, cytoplasmic contents, and the nucleus. The text then examines blood and lymph, development and destruction of blood corpuscles, and connective tissues.
The manuscript takes a look at adipose tissue, cartilage, and bone, including development and functions of adipose tissue, hyaline cartilage, fibro-cartilage, elastic cartilage, and joints and synovial membranes. The book then ponders on muscular tissue, nervous tissue, peripheral nerves, ganglia, neuroglia, and meninges, blood circulatory system, lymphatic system, thymus, and spleen, and adrenals, thyroid, and parathyroid glands.
The publication is a valuable reference for medical students and readers interested in the structure of the cells, organs, and tissues of the human body.
400 FULL-COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS
Medical Histology: The Big Picture is a different kind of study tool. With an emphasis on what you “need to know” versus “what’s nice to know”, and featuring more than 400 full-color illustrations and micrographs, it offers a focused, streamlined overview of human histology. You’ll find a succinct, user-friendly presentation designed to make even the most complex concepts understandable in a short amount of time.
