As a medical student in gross anatomy, I found this book to be an excellent resource to supplement your studying.
Stephen McTowelie
It is helpful when I'm not able to make it into the lab or I want to see what the structures are really supposed to look like.
kirst
This being photographs of real bodies means that you see all of the tissue types in every image, and they are well labeled.

I am a first year medical student and find that this is a great tool to use when for studying for practicals. For me, the two best features are:

-The lines that point to structures only have numbers on them, with a small area of the page that says what those numbers correspond to. This makes it very easy to test yourself. The downside to this is that if it is your first exposure to the structures you're looking at, you'll be constantly looking at numbers and finding the corresponding name, which isn't as quick & easy as if the lines were labeled with the name of the structure. However, this is also why it's good to have some familiarity with the structures before using this book by, say, studying the first time with a regular anatomy book.

-This being photographs of real bodies means that you see all of the tissue types in every image, and they are well labeled. I find it easier to remember what nerve or artery supplies a given muscle if I can see them both at the same time, which many regular texts don't do, at least not often enough.

As another reviewer noted and as I have alluded to, this should be used in conjunction with another anatomy book. Use a standard one to learn the structures and concepts, and then use this one to help you identify it on a real cadaver. Plus, it's always good to see things more than once. I use the Thieme Atlas of Anatomy as my primary atlas and love it. It's a relative newcomer, so you don't hear about it as often as the established giants like Netter and Grant's, but I think it's superior to either of them. The art work is incredible (better than Netter) and it includes some occasional extras peppered throughout, like small radiographs and sidenotes.

Rohen is seminal to every facet of anatomy I care to think of. The extremely high quality of the prosections aid in lab and dissection work, the few diagrams clearly express functional relationships and the image and binding quality superb.

This new edition has added a badly needed online consult and as with previous editions tweaking of the image content (this does however differ little from previous editions). Rohen does need to be used in conjunction with more typical atlases, commonly Netter's or Grant's as due to its purely pictorial nature some information is obscured. That being said Rohen is as close as you can get to learning human anatomy without having wet specimens sitting in front of you.

To put it simply Rohen is the bomb.

I have Grant's, Moore's, Blumenfield, Haines, and a few other random anatomy texts, but Rohen's is THE best for anatomy practical exam preparation. I also have the Rohen's Photographic Anatomy Flash Cards, but don't bother with those; just get the book.

I am a first year medical student and this is the only book I use in my anatomy class. We are doing a full human body dissection and half of our grade is practical testing with structures tagged on 22 different cadavers. This book is great because it labels structures on real cadavers. I am more than happy with this purchase and highly suggest this book to any person dissecting a human body (serial killers not included).

This is an excellent resource, however, I am disappointed with the pelvic section and the arterial systems for each section. I think they could improve those areas with more diagrams.

This is the most detailed photographic atlas of human anatomy that I have seen. It is an excellent study companion for gross anatomy lab.
I highly recommend it for any student taking gross anatomy.

Good book for finding all the structures you can't or the ones that your lab partner sawed in to from the start. Very thorough pictures and labeling, easy reading layout. I enjoyed it!
