The human body is explored in more than 450 color and black-and-white drawings, diagrams, and photographs using the latest techniques and equipment -- CAT-scans, thermography, computer mapping, crystal scintillation, and X-ray photography. A concise text provides an excellent introduction to the way the body works, explaining each different body system -- from locomotor to urogenital -- and outlining the varieties of human tissue. In addition to explaining the complex wonders of the human body, the text sheds light on specific health problems and indicates the areas where science still finds human anatomy a mystery.
A perfect introduction to human anatomy and physiology for the student, artist, or layman.
