Instant Anatomy uses a unique structure to provide core information in an easily accessible ‘dip-in’ format. It neatly catalogues anatomy and anatomical relationships in a schematic, dictionary-style manner to aid rapid understanding and retrieval of anatomical facts and data.

Now fully updated, this fourth edition of Instant Anatomy is precise, concise and easy to navigate, enabling quick look-up and reference points for students, junior doctors and practising clinicians. It covers all the major aspects of anatomy with a consistent, logical approach that pulls together information that would otherwise be spread between sections of a large textbook. Featuring clear illustrations and an expanded surface anatomy section, it presents complex information in a clear and understandable way.
