This book provides students with a systematic approach to histology which is ideal as a study companion to support students of medicine, biomedical sciences and life sciences in their studies and also as an excellent tool for medical board review.

This sixth edition has been fully updated by experts in the field, Stevens and Lowe’s Human Histology is designed to provide a highly-visual, well-structured, learning resource.

Key Features
  • Easy to read and follow – ideal grounding in the key concepts of histology, covering all the organ systems
  • Clear illustrations, over 500 visually-engaging photos and graphics bring concepts to life
  • Advanced Concept boxes link histology to cell biology and physiology for wider, integrated subject understanding.
  • Clinical example boxes anchors histology to its application in diagnosis as part of pathology and clinical medicine.
  • Carefully captioned histological images support development of microscopy skills
  • Review questions for self-assessment
  • Online review questions and clinical cases to support learning
  • Online video support: watch the experts discuss microscopic images and experience how to approach a visual understanding of histology.
  • An enhanced eBook version is included with purchase. The eBook allows you to access all the text, figures and references, with the ability to search, customize your content, make notes and highlights, and have content read aloud
