This new edition was revised and structured anew in different
ways. Each chapter is provided with an introductory front page
to give an overview of the topics of the chapter and short
descriptions. The whole introductory chapter “General Anatomy”
was newly arranged and supported with introductory texts, thus
facilitating students to better understand the complicated
“world” of gross anatomy. The large chapter 2 “Head and Neck”
was split into 5 sub-chapters with an introductory page each.
Furthermore, the drawings were revised and improved in many
chapters and depicted more consistently. In most of the chapters
new photographs taken from newly dissected specimens were
The general structure and arrangement of the Atlas were maintained.
The chapters of regional anatomy are consequently
placed behind the systematic descriptions of the anatomical
structures so that students can study – e.g. before dissecting an
extremity – the systematic anatomy of bones, joints, muscles,
nerves and vessels. For studying the photographs of the specimens
the use of a magnifier might be helpful. The enormous plasticity of
the photos is surprising, especially at higher magnifications.
In many places new MRI and CT scans were added to give consideration
to the new imaging techniques which become more
and more important for the student in preclinics. We would like
to express our sincere thanks to Prof. Heuck, Munich, who provided
us with the MRI scans.
In the underlying seventh edition photographs of the surface
anatomy of the human body were included again. We omitted
marks and indications in order not to affect the quality of the
Despite numerous additions and amendments the size of the
volume did not increase so that students both in preclinics and in
clinics are offered an atlas easy to handle and cope with.
While preparing this new edition, the authors were reminded of
how precisely, beautifully, and admirably the human body is
constructed. If this book helps the student or medial doctor to
appreciate the overwhelming beauty of the anatomical architecture
of tissues and organs in the human, then it greatly fulfils its task.
Deep interest and admiration of the anatomical structures may
create the “love for man”, which alone can be considered of
primary importance for daily medical work…
