This book is invaluable as a medical terminology reference – initially designed for the derivation of the anatomical terms; it has expanded to include tables of medical, pathological and other specialist terms; tables of prefixes and suffixes which allow interpretation of terms and lists of abbreviations commonly in use. It also includes forms of address, titles, major medical associations and other useful material; such as the preparation of specimens for the laboratory. Many small illustrations are used to demonstrate the terms throughout the book.

Dr Neill is passionate about making subjects clear through the use of images, and her belief that ‘a picture tells a thousand words’ informs the approach to the A to Z books, where the guiding principle is to make learning anatomy as straightforward as possible. She is also intensely aware of the needs of those studying anatomy for the first time, and the A to Z books were developed in close collaboration with students.
