Summary
A dramatic pictorial tour. The desire to see and understand the inner workings of our bodies starts at an early age. The curiosity to glimpse what happens inside the body's systems, organs and even the brain is a continuing scientific quest. The magnificent illustrations in Photographic Atlas of the Body are created by imaging technologies and the latest scientific methods. Dramatic close-up photography of human anatomy is combined with clear, descriptive text to explain the human body's functions and inner workings. The images of Photographic Atlas of the Body are organized in five major sections: Imaging Techniques Cells Biological systems Tissues Brain and Senses. Each section opens with a clearly written introductory essay. Vivid, full-page images follow, each with a simple pictogram identifying the location and concise captions explaining the body part's function and significance. Sixteen types of imaging instruments and techniques are explained including: X-ray and radioactive (Barium meal) CAT scan MRI, SEM, TEM, NMR Optical and microscopy Acoustic and ultrasound. Each of these methods creates a unique portrait of the unseen world within each of us. Photographic Atlas of the Body is a valuable guide to, and reference for, the internal workings of the body
