The latest edition of Dorland’s Illustrated Medical Dictionary, the world’s leading medical dictionary for over 100 years. Thoroughly revised and updated, it contains over 120,000 terms from all medical specialties, including expanded coverage of CAM, the latest drugs, Terminologia Anatomica, and thousands of new terms. Over 450 illustrations have been added, for a total of over 1500, and once again the latest versions of Dorland’s Electronic Medical Speller and Dorland’s Pocket Medical Dictionary, PDA version, are included at no cost, together with audio phonetics for over 35,000 terms, a brand new feature. Dorland’s 31st edition continues the tradition of being the most complete, most authoritative medical dictionary available.

Completely overhauled for this new edition, this is a top-notch medical dictionary; coloured illustrations, photographs and tables are all used selectively to highlight points and facilitate understanding. The dictionary comes with a CD-ROM allowing you to install an e-book version on your PDA and a spell-checker on your PC. Both the e-book and spell-checker are easy to install and use, although both require web-access from your PC for installation.

The PDA version is a shortened version of the paper-based dictionary. The apparent lack of diagrams on the PDA version is a bit of a shame. In terms of searching for a word or abbreviation there is the usual index. The index is complemented with a search facility; this greatly speeds-up the ability to look-up words. As per the paper version there are also links between related definitions - flicking to and through these different links is easier on the PDA.

The spell-checker slots neatly into Microsoft Word and Microsoft Office - it contains all the words in the dictionary, and works well in Word XP. The installation even includes a test document to determine whether the installation was successful - a nice thoughtful touch.
