Human Anatomy: A Conceptual Approach features material that has been placed in perspective and focuses on concepts and functionally relevant facts. The book aims to make the study of human anatomy interesting and relevant for the reader, while also enabling students and health professionals alike to make the best use of their time while studying and reviewing Gross Anatomy. The book has been organized keeping in mind the Anatomy curriculum followed by medical and dental institutions. Special emphasis has been laid on structure-function relationships to direct the student towards achieving a better understanding of the organization of the human body. Other key features of this book are the simplicity of language and the use of anatomical terms relating to positions, directions, and relations; a style adhering to the International Anatomical Terminology (Terminologia Anatomica) published in 1998 (Thieme) and approved by the International Federation of Associations of Anatomists (IFAA).
