This dictionary is illustrated by one of the masters of medical illustration, Biagio Melloni. Packed with illustrations, it is a great resource. Illustrations are clear and large unlike many other illustrated dictionaries that have tiny images.

We ordered this book for our Cardiology Practice. It is a great book to have, very informative and easy to read. It has a lot of medical information with illustrations. It is probably one of the best resource books in my Medical Coding Department.
