Pros and Cons... 30 July 2006
By Ocular/Orbital Surgeon - Published on
Format: Paperback
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.

An invaluable reference work for Histology students 16 April 2000
By Bruno Dantas - Published on
Format: Paperback
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.

The histological maze 6 Aug. 2005
By drcarmen - Published on
Format: Paperback
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.

Excellent book to start your medical career 25 April 2006
By N. Pavasia - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm a 2nd year medical student as of April 2006.

This book helped me a lot to put the whole picture togather. I even refer back to this book when reviewing for pathology.

The book title says it all...Histology pictures with functional correlations. All the body organ system presented with very good slide view pictures, which are all labeled + text explaining the labels and functional aspects of all the labels. This book helped me connect all the body organs.

I highly recommend this book for basic science histology class. Start your medical career right w/ choosing the right books and this is one of them.
