Medical publishing has come a long way since Grey's Anatomy. Now we get CT scans, MRI's and ultrasound images. There is also much more information about the function of various anatomical structures. Anatomy is particularly informative when it includes studies of malfunctioning body parts and systems. The book CLINICALLY ORIENTED ANATOMY makes a good companion to a textbook on histology. There is a lot of material to cover, and one book cannot cover it all on its own. Comparative anatomy and developmental biology are also examples of areas that are important, but cannot be covered in one book. A book specifically on dissection would also be something to consider as a supplement. But overall, I am happy with my purchase.

I am a first year PT student with not the most extensive anatomy background, so I am basically learning my anatomy out of this book. I love it because it has pictures and text. A lot of people like to us an anatomy 'atlas' but I like the text, so I can learn about what I am seeing. The pictures are nice and clear and the important information on innervation and muscles is summarized in tables.

This book is a very basic yet detailed anatomy textbook, with colored atlas. I guess I really liked the text, and the clinical blueboxes in which it explains the clinical relevance. As for the colored atlas, I strongly recommend this book:

Atlas of Human Anatomy: with Student Consult Access

It's amazingly detailed, accurate and definitely helped me a lot in terms of identifying features. So, definitely get both books and have fun in anatomy!

Incredible anatomy text Jan. 28 2010
By st0w - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Clinically Oriented Anatomy is, without a doubt, the best anatomy text I have come across thus far. And at this point, I've got a shelf full of anatomy books. The writing is very clear and in nearly every passage, easy to follow. Sometimes the descriptions get a bit confusing if you aren't comfortable yet with anatomical orientation (superomedial, aborad, etc) but that will come with any anatomy text - it's part of the process of learning anatomy. The passages are far more easy to read than Gray's Anatomy for Students, and the blue box clinical correlates and sectional summaries do an excellent job tying things together. At the end of a given section, I always find myself coming away with a very solid understanding of the material I've just read.

It has been mentioned in other comments that the illustrations are not the best. And I agree with that. But this is a text, not an atlas, and therein lies the difference. The illustrations are meant to provide general orientation and understanding. The illustrations in Gray's Anatomy for Students are generally better than in this book, but they pale in comparison to any of the real atlases out there in content and detail. For true details and spatial comprehension, you need a real atlas. I'm preferential to Thieme for illustrations (the neurovasculature illustrations are just incredible) and Rohen for photographic images.

Combine a great text with one or two great atlases. That's the only way to truly learn anatomy.

Not so great Aug. 16 2010
By Alex - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I don't see how this book has almost five stars. In my first semester med school anatomy class everyone had this textbook (as it was recommended by the school). After the first month maybe 2 students still used it (out of 100 students). If you already know your anatomy and have a strong background, then this book will be great. If you are new to the game then all you really need is the gray's students edition for the introduction, the netters atlas for clarification, and the brs for details.

Dont be fooled by the whole 'clinically oriented' part, it's not as great as you think. The brs will explain these same fractures/diseases much faster and clearer...on top of that the brs online aspect supplies MANY more questions. AVOID.

Excellent textbook! Sept. 16 2009
By David P. Steigerwald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is very thorough with detailed pictures and explanations. It is well worth the money. I also bought Netter's, which is amazing, but is only pictures, no text. If you have little money, buy this one, not both and certainly not just Netter's.

Best anatomy textbook Aug. 25 2009
By Organicmedic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you have time, you should read this textbook in order to completely understand clinical anatomy. If you don't have time (like most of us), then the blue boxes are indispensable. The pictures throughout the text are a great complement to Netter's atlas. Great text!

Good book with nice illustrations Aug. 21 2009
By Michael W. Via - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Good book with nice illustrations. Minor oversight on a few illustrations (EX: where the Maxillary division of the trigeminal nerve exits the visocranium).
