There are pictures of structures in cadavers from every angle possible.
A. Waterford
I was having a difficult time learning anatomy from Netter, and hated spending time in the cadaver lab, so this book really saved me.

I used this book along with Netter's atlas for my gross anatomy course in med school.

Although Netter's classic drawings are helpful in understanding the layout of human body systems, I find that this 6th Edition of Rohen is outstanding due to the excellent photography of professionally-dissected cadavers. It is much easier to identify complex structures on real cadavers in a Gross Anatomy lab using this reference; moreover, it is helpful as a tool to study when the cadaver lab is not open. Real bodies are much more difficult to analyze than idealized drawings--with this book, you can review before a laboratory excercise and have a more realistic expectation of what you are going to actually see.

People generally have different tastes in the types of atlases that they prefer to use, but I think that this one covers everything you would want to see.

I used this book along with Netter's atlas for my gross anatomy course in med school. However I found myself referring to Rohen far and away more often than Netter's. Because Rohen has actual photographs of cadavers it is VERY useful for studying for anatomy PRACTICAL EXAMS. What you see in Rohen is what you will see on your cadaver, whereas Netter's is pretty to look at but not at all realistic. Highly recommended!

I too, return to this atlas for the photo-realism. I especially appreciated the colored cranial bones (just like my favorite 3D model in class), colored bronchopulmonary segments of the lungs, and colored differentiation of the brain lobes. The photos of the skull break apart each individual bone into multiple angle views and pieces to expose all the hidden landmarks. They're also a good test of spacial recognition of the same landmark from multiple views and layers. Other photo atlases just don't have this breath and depth AND the photos in this one are the clearest I've seen. Most are shot on a black background for utmost contrast and clarity. The cadaver disections are clearly defined and distinctly detailed. Pencil sketches which further clarify the photos, are in black and white, using color to highlight only the featured system or organ, which is a different approach from Netter's.

I am a first year med student, and this book made a huge difference in my grades. You can only spend so much time in the anatomy lab, and the other atlas's that use drawings are great for learning theory, however this book allowed me to prepare well for practicals where you must identify the structure on a cadaver. Also, unlike studying real cadavers without definitive feedback, I was 100% certain whether I named the structure correct or not. The layout of the book is great. the pictures are real, and the arrows to the structures are numbered so you can name the structure without seeing the correct answer, then verify the number and name on the bottom of the same page. Well worth the investment, my grades went up significantly and made dissection much easier.

This is a fantastic supplement for gross anatomy. Netter's Atlas is better for visualizing the basic concepts of anatomy, and I would recommend purchasing that book before this one. If you can afford two anatomy supplements, though, the Color Atlas should be next on your list. No drawing can really replace an actual dissection. This atlas is much more useful for studying in preparation for a practical exam, whereas Netter's might better serve you when studying for your written. This (like Netter's) is also a rarity of a medical text insofar as it also makes a great coffee table book (if you don't have squeamish friends).

I am currently in my first year of medical school and the required books for Medical Gross Anatomy Lab are: Gray's Disection Guide for Human Anatomy and Netter's. Rohen's Color atlas of Anatomy has extremely clean disections and very good labeling, and now my required books are collecting dust because this book has everything I need. I use this book everyday and it goes everywhere with me, it is by far the best atlas for clinical anatomy- and it's a hardback too!

This my first foray into a photographic anatomy book and I was quite pleased, that is not to say it did not have its issues.

The first thing you will notice with this book is, it's very high quality and attractive. It's a beautiful cover, sturdy material and the pages are thick and rigid. There are few, and for most people, no accidental tears that can occur with thinner pages.

The content itself was very thorough, but not complete. While nearly all structures in the body are shown, not all are labeled, which can easily lead to some confusion when trying to classify it, two examples I recall are the labial veins or in certain pictures identifying the maxillary vs transverse facial artery. Basic mistakes, but they'll happen if you need this book to learn. Of course, the pictures are so clear, if you have a schematic atlas, the labeling may not even be necessary, but for me I prefer everything labeled. On the same topic, they add at least one schematic representation of what structure they are representing (not near the depth of a separate atlas though), and when a secondary visual is needed they would highlight with paint. Examples of drawings, trajectorial lines of the femoral head, General architecture of a synovial joint, Meningeal coverings of the spinal cord.

Overall, this book gives a great understanding of how an actual human body will look but could be difficult to learn from; it's best to have an idealized view of it, such as Netter's or Grant's.
