Color Atlas of Pathology
Pathologic Principles - Associated Diseases - Sequelae
by Ursus-Nikolaus Riede
Edition: 1st., 2004
In the study of medicine, pathology is the subject that concentrates on the mechanisms of a disease process and the morphologic changes in tissue that it causes. Therefore, it is only natural to attempt to render the material more accessible to students by making maximum use of illustrative images while keeping tedious theory to a minimum.
This pathology book focuses on general pathology. Aside from general pathology, the initial phase of the medical school curriculum customarily includes the basics of the pathology of organ systems and processes including the respiratory system, liver, gastrointestinal tract, excretory organs, nervous system, and endocrine system. The book covers these topics as patterns of injury that can affect more than one specific organ or tissue.
