Il libro

The Atlas of Histology was created in 2011, in the form of a WEB site, to provide students with the possibility to consolidate what they learned, during the laboratory activity with the microscope, about the histological characteristics of different tissues. It consists of five chapters, the first describing staining methods and the next four dealing with tissues. This new version presents more than 500 images obtained from specimens on record. Different staining methods were used to highlight each specific characteristic of the tissue. For better didactic efficacy, several images are graphically annotated; in those cases where the additional graphic part is overwhelming, the same image is reproduced without annotations.   
For a better access and consultation of the content using a tablet the ePub "Atlas of Histology" has been divided into four separately downloadable files:

  • Part 1. Stainings
  • Part 2. The tissues: epithelial tissue
  • Part 3. The tissues: connective tissue
  • Part 4. The tissues: muscle and nervous tissue
