Another installment in the three-volume Lippincott’s Concise Illustrated Anatomy series, Thorax, Abdomen & Pelvis supports medical students as well as others studying anatomy—such as students in physician assistant and general surgery programs—or seeking a specialty reference for the clerkship years and beyond. Each volume in the series includes outline text to accompany full-color, atlas-style images and illustrations from sources such as the Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Atlas of Anatomy. The unique regional focus of the series facilitates teaching and learning in semester or year-long anatomy systems blocks.

In addition to Thorax, Abdomen & Pelvis, two additional volumes in the series—Head & Neck and Back, Upper Limb & Lower Limb—cover other regions in depth.
