Summary: Featuring more than 750 newly illustrated, modern images, including clinical images, this vibrantly coloured regional atlas of human anatomy offers an unprecedented combination of visual aesthetic appeal and anatomical accuracy. Its unique colour palette and colour coding of anatomical elements set this atlas apart from others in the market, along with its student-friendly features, including minimal text and labelling as well as isolated views of images. Even more distinctive, each plate was designed with a teaching/learning objective in mind, which aids in an immediate focus, and easier and faster comprehension. These features coupled with the atlas' unique art program allow this atlas to succeed in meeting market needs and student preferences.
Packaged with this brand new atlas is an online interactive atlas with all of the images, including fully searchable legends and labels, and zoom and compare features. Also included is a flash card engine which allows students to design and print their own flash cards and quiz themselves on newly learned concepts and structures.
Also available is an interactive atlas for faculty, which contains all of the images and the figures with slideshow and JPG export features. The image bank provides figures with labels and leaders on, labels off and leaders on, labels and leaders off, and JPG and PDF options. Faculty also have access to Moore: Clinically Oriented Anatomy's question test bank, which contains approximately 500 review questions with answers.

· Each plate has a teaching objective--achieved through various artistic techniques including "ghosting," layering, and colour selectivity--that helps students quickly grasp anatomical concepts.
· Image labelling is clear and uncluttered and is limited to the anatomical concept being highlighted.
· Images focus on "average" anatomy.
· Bright colour palette appeals to students' preferences; colour coding of anatomical elements imparts pedagogical consistency.
· Extensive reviews solicited from anatomists worldwide ensure accuracy.
· Images are presented in anterior and posterior views, as well as lateral views where appropriate.
· Anatomical terminology is consistent with standard anatomical nomenclature (Terminologia Anatomica).
