PHILADELPHIA, August 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

New app edition includes more than 1,000-color illustrations, making
anatomy come alive anywhere, anytime

Elsevier, the leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and services, announced today its new Gray's Anatomy
for Students App, for iPad, is now available on the App Store. The app
includes content from Gray's Anatomy for Students, Second Edition.

The Gray's Anatomy for Students App provides access to a
clinically-oriented, student-friendly textbook for human anatomy. Beginning
with a general chapter on the body, students are introduced to the
anatomical terminology, positioning, medical imaging and overview of body
systems. The content then progresses through the body in a logical manner,
building on the body's complexity as the reader becomes familiar with the
subject matter.

"Today, more and more students and clinicians are turning to the iPad
for content, so we wanted to provide a version of one of the best-selling
textbooks of anatomy where students can access all the leading content
without having to carry the actual book," said Dr. Richard Blake, co-author
of Gray's Anatomy for Students, Second Edition. "Through a digital, simple
version, this app will give students access to anatomical terminology
anytime and anywhere."

The Gray's Anatomy for Students App has several features, including:

        - Complete text and full HD illustrations;
        - Scrollable thumbnails of all illustrations;
        - Convenient searchable index;
        - Pinch and zoom figures;
        - Mark and label function, including the ability to save images to
          "My Photos" or adding notes to text and/or figures;
        - Index to clinical content, surface anatomy, tables and notes.

In its second edition, Gray's Anatomy for Students is highly recommended
by both staff and students. A team of authors with a wealth of diverse
teaching and clinical experience has updated and revised the new edition to
efficiently cover content that is learned in contemporary anatomy classes.
An improved format, updated clinical material, and remarkable artwork by
renowned illustrators Richard Tibbitts and Paul Richardson make anatomy
easier to master. Unique coverage of surface anatomy, correlative diagnostic
images, and clinical case studies demonstrate practical applications of
anatomical concepts, and an international advisory board, comprised of more
than 100 instructors, ensures that the material is accurate, up to date, and
easy to use.

The Gray's Anatomy for Students App is available for $79.99 from the App
Store on iPad or at
