Atlas of Anatomy for Allied Health

David G. Ward, Ph.D

The Atlas of Anatomy for Allied Health is the outgrowth of Dr. David Ward’s anatomy and physiology instruction and his expertise in photography and photomicroscopy.

  • The overall goal of the Atlas is to provide a compact and integrated reference of gross and microscopic anatomy for pre-nursing and other allied health students.
  • The Atlas is also designed to be used as a primary guide or as a supplement to laboratory exercises in anatomy.
  • Based on four-color photographs and illustrations of anatomical models, specimens, and histological material from anatomy labs.
  • Each page focuses on a specific topic, is clean and simple in design, and parallels the organization of anatomy and anatomy/physiology textbooks.
  • Includes brilliant four-color photomicrographs with a wide range of magnification using fluorescence, darkfield, polarized light, and standard brightfield microscopy.
  • The Atlas includes a comprehensive index of all structures labeled in the four-color photographs and illustrations.
