The Atlas of Descriptive Histology is the most comprehensive histology atlas available. It covers all tissues and organs, each subject prefaced by introductory boxed text. Full-color high-resolution micrographs, gathered from colleagues both domestic and international, provide superb image quality. By showing images of the same area at successively increasing magnifications, the book provides students with an experience similar to that they would get from an actual microscope. Careful descriptions of each micrograph include those details a student should be able to recognize.
For the Student
Each copy of the Atlas of Descriptive Histology includes an access code that gives the student a subscription to the textbook's Companion Website. The site features a flexible image viewer that allows the student to view any of the micrographs in the book. Features of the image viewer include:
*Each micrograph from each plate in the textbook is provided separately.
*A zoom tool allows the student to view the micrograph at either low resolution or high resolution--providing greatly increased detail.
*Labels and leaders can each be displayed or hidden independently.
*A self-quiz mode allows the student to test themselves on structure identification.
*Each micrograph can be downloaded for incorporation into student notes or presentations.
For the Instructor
Instructor's Resource Library
The Atlas of Descriptive Histology Instructor's Resource Library includes multiple versions of every micrograph from every plate in the textbook, as well as an instructor version of the image viewer from the Companion Website. The IRL includes the following:
*Micrographs provided in three formats: Without leaders or labels, with leaders only, and with leaders and labels.
*All images provided as both low-resolution and high-resolution JPEGs.
*A PowerPoint presentation of all images for each chapter.
*The instructor version of the image viewer, which includes all the features described above, with the addition of a pen tool that allows drawing on the image during lecture.
