In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Written by one of the great teachers of Anatomy, this 50th anniversary edition of Clinical Anatomy continues to provide thousands of medical students, postgraduate trainees and junior doctors across the world with essential anatomical information within a clinical setting. It is particularly appropriate for those preparing for the Membership of the Royal College of Surgeon's Exam. For this new edition, Professor Harold Ellis is joined, for the first time, by a co-author. Professor Vishy Mahadevan is Barber's Company Reader in Anatomy at the Royal College of Surgeons, a renowned teacher of surgical trainees and is also an examiner for the MRCS Exam. Together they provide a detailed, easy-to-follow structured text suitable for anatomy students and trainees of all levels. Fully revised and updated, this new edition features new and re-drawn illustrations, new images of normal anatomy (radiographs, CTs and NMRs) to aid understanding, a revised neuroanatomy section to provide greater clarity and an expansion of the lower limb section. In order to provide revision support, Clinical Anatomy has its own website featuring digital flashcards of all the images found in the textbook available to download for free at www.ellisclinicalanatomy.co.uk
