Handbook of Osteology Dedicated to Education is the thoroughly revised and updated edition of the popular book. All the diagrams have been replaced by new ones making them more accurate and simple. Graphics have been made informative, illustrative and appealingly attractive by incorporating subtle colours synonymous with widely accepted international colour code. International norms have been adopted for abbreviations, terminology, definitions, descriptions and labelling. Although the book carries complete description of each bone, yet only extremely essential information is included in the text in a lucid manner to make it a handbook for medical students. The unique feature of this book is its diagrams which have been independently drawn by the author himself to avoid factual inaccuracies. Clarity in the language and the unique way of presentation further enhance the value of the book. The book will fully serve the interests of undergraduate medical students as a text and a rich resource book handbook for postgraduate students in anatomy, orthopedics, surgery and related specialties.
