Praise for the First Edition:
"An excellent resource to review fundamental concepts that craft our understanding of the human body."
—The American Biology Teacher
Digital Histology: An Interactive CD Atlas with Review Text offers a complete introduction to histology with superbly clear and thoroughly labeled images andillustrations within an elegant navigation structure. While the printed book provides a handy, consistentlystructured outline for your review of key issues in thestudy of human histology, the CD-ROM is an inter-active, annotated digital color atlas of micrographs.
Features new to this edition include:
Over 1,200 light and electron microscopic images (almost 500 more images than in the first edition) that can be superimposed with labels and descriptive legends
New electron micrographs with diagrammatic overlays highlighting structural features
New sections on mitosis and meiosis, which contain stage-by-stage diagrams detailing structural events
A side-by-side diagrammatic comparison of thestages of mitosis and meiosis
Expanded coverage of supporting cells in nervous tissue; gametogenesis in the male and female reproductive systems; and hemopoiesis
The CD-ROM provides interactive learning on both Mac and PC platforms. In addition to its hundreds of new images, this new edition features a navigational tool that tracks current locations within the contents, as well as allowing linear and nonlinear access to any screen. It also features randomized viewing of images, especially helpful to use alongside the self-quizzes.
Digital Histology is an indispensable learning tool for students and teachers in medicine, histology, human biology, anatomy and physiology, and pathology. SHOW LESS READ MORE >

"Overall I thought this text was a good interactive learning tool. It provides a thorough introduction to histology for young pathologists with limited undergraduate experience and a useful revision too. Additionally, it would not look out of place as a basic histology resource in most pathology routine rooms ." (The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists, 1 July 2011)
