Book Description

1 Jan 2008 0781770572 978-0781770576 11Rev Ed
diFiore's Atlas of Histology with Functional Correlations, Eleventh Edition, explains basic histology concepts through full-color, schematic illustrations. These illustrations are supplemented by more than 450 digitized full-color online photomicrographs of histological images. Part One explains tissues and their relationship to their systems; Part Two addresses organs in a similar way. Targeting undergraduate, allied health and first and second year medical students, the 11th Edition includes new and enhanced images through redrawing and digitization to provide increased detail. This edition also features updated illustrations and information on the functions of cells, tissues, and organs of the body based on advances in research and expert recommendations. The atlas' student-friendly "Functional Correlations" sections help students study structure and function together. Students also benefit from a "realistic" perspective as more than 70 micrographs appear adjacent to color illustrations. A companion website offers student and instructor versions of diFiore's Interactive Atlas with all of the images from the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pros and Cons... 30 July 2006
By Ocular/Orbital Surgeon - Published on
I used this book for medical school histology in combination with the Junqueira textbook. I liked this atlas because it is predominantly drawings and so you get to see the "ideal" appearance of things. There are lots of labels on the drawings pointing out the different features of what is being illustrated...this is very helpful and other atlases and textbooks I saw did not do as good a job with this. There is some text as well which is mildly helpful.

Other people in my medical school class used the wheater book, gartner, or strete and seemed happy. There were a few instances where I would have preferred to see a photograph instead of a drawing, but overall I was very happy with this book and would use it again. This book was particularly helpful in the "lab" portion of histology when identifying cells and tissue structures on slides.

5.0 out of 5 stars An invaluable reference work for Histology students 16 April 2000
By Bruno Dantas - Published on
I am a senior physiology/neurobiology major taking a course in histology who is fortunate enough to have a copy of Di Fiore's atlas. In fact, I have all but substituted the atlas for the course textbook. Here's why... According to Aristotle, art captures the universal essence of things. In few places have I seen the truth of this claim as clearly as in Di Fiore's Atlas. The illustrations in this remarkable atlas truly present the structural features of tissues and organs in an idealized, universal way that has helped me identify actual, imperfect samples time after time. Not only are the images of the atlas of superb quality; the text ("functional correlations") are also top-class. In fact, Eroschenko's text is what every student dreams of: a streamlined presentation of only the most relevant information, without the choppy feel of an outline. So if you are looking for a histology atlas with excellent illustrations that show the universal features of tissues and organs and a very economical, no-nonsense text, then Di Fiore's Atlas is for you!

This would make a good text for an introductory course (perhaps a second year college course), but would not be considered anywhere near superior for any type of advanced course (e.g. 400-level college course, graduate study, medical school).

The strengths of DiFore's Atlas are that it is a good blent between an atlas and a text. There are a good number of pictures as well as very concise text. The clinical correlations are a very good addition, but seems to be less and less a distinguishing factor as there has been a great shift to a clinical emphasis in the sciences.

The majority of the images in this atlas are artistic renditions (i.e. drawing) of histological sections. Therefore, you are getting the most ideal situations.

But there's the rub. The main problem with this atlas is that it predominantly drawings and not real histological samples. It would have been much better if it were around 1:1 or 1:3 drawings to images. You do not get to train yourself to identify what is background "noise" and what are actual important landmarks and cells.

I would not recommend buying this text unless you are trying to learn histology on your own outside of class.

4.0 out of 5 stars The histological maze 6 Aug 2005
By drcarmen - Published on
This is a very easy-to-use, beginning text in histology. It is an excellent supplement to standard texts used in Anatomy, but lacks some depth. I appreciate the outstanding images and the clear labels that accompany them. It is well-organized, and reasonably priced.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't need the new edition 31 Aug 2008
By Summer Day - Published on
I am a medical student and I actually had the main author as my instructor - Victor Eroshenko.
The atlas is helpful, although the most helpful part is the CD. If you have histology lab as part of your course, the CD is helpful for giving tissue slides, labels, and descriptions. If you don't have a lab as part of your course, I'm not sure if this text is necessary.
I had the opportunity to look at the 2007 and the 2005 editions, and there doesn't seem to be much difference. Save yourself a lot of money and buy the tenth edition!
