McMinn's Color Atlas of Head and Neck Anatomy Elsevier eBook on VitalSource (Retail Access Card), 4th Edition


McMinn’s Color Atlas of Head and Neck Anatomy is the only large format atlas of the human head and neck, incorporating outstanding dissections, osteology, and radiographic and surface anatomy images. Bari M. Logan, Patricia Reynolds, and Ralph T. Hutchings present a "road map" reference to the structures of the head and neck, ideal for study or exam review. New dissections and double page spreads provide detailed depictions for additional and more specific areas. The more complex dissections are accompanied by explanatory artwork and all dissections are accompanied by notes and commentaries. Reference lists and dental anesthesia information are incorporated into appendices at the back of the book. All in all, this is a beautiful and thorough atlas of the whole head and neck region.

"It is difficult find any fault with a book that has been so painstakingly prepared and remains so comprehensively relevant. A copy in the library for reference is not good enough - everyone should have their own!"

European Journal of Orhtodontics, July 2010
