Steding’s and Virágh’s Scanning Electron Microscopy Atlas of the Developing Human Heart comprises a complete and extensive exposure of the spatial and temporal aspects of human cardiac development as seen with scanning electron microscopy. Apart from serving as a unique overview on cardiac development in the human embryo, this atlas gives an updated morphological reference of cardiac embryology for topographic correlation and enables the projection of experimental results in animals to the human situation.
Steding’s and Virágh’s Scanning Electron Microscopy Atlas of the Developing Human Heart offers a readily accessible reference aid for scientists working in the fields of molecular, biochemical, genetic and morphological investigation of cardiac development. Additionally, it serves as a helpful tool in the education of medical students, clinicians, pathologists and geneticists.
