By Shu-xin Zhang M.D., Ph.D. (auth.)

The starting scholar of histology is usually faced by way of a paradox: diagrams in lots of books that illustrate human microanatomy in a simplified, cartoon-like demeanour are effortless to appreciate, yet are tough to narrate to genuine tissue specimens or images. In flip, images usually fail to teach a few very important positive factors of a given tissue, simply because no person specimen can exhibit all the tissue's salient fea­ tures both good. This atlas, packed with photo-realistic drawings, was once ready to aid bridge the space among the simplicity of diagrams and the extra advanced genuine­ ity of microstructure. the entire figures during this atlas have been drawn from histological arrangements utilized by scholars in my histology sessions, on the point of sunshine microscopy. each one drawing isn't really easily an outline of somebody histological part, yet can also be a synthesis of the major buildings and lines noticeable in lots of arrangements of comparable tissues or organs. The illustrations are consultant of the common positive aspects of every tissue and organ. The atlas serves as a compendium of the elemental morphological features of human tissue which scholars can be in a position to recognize.

Cartilage and Bone Bone: Periosteum and Lamellae Periosteum is a layer of dense connective tissue investing all bones except on the articular surfaces. It consists of outer and inner layers. The outer or fibrous layer is very dense fibrous connective tissue. The inner or osteogenic layer is more cellular and vascular, and is a kind of loose connective tissue containing blood vessels and fusiform osteogenic cells or osteoblasts near the surface of the bone.

The cells of the striated duct are cuboidal or low columnar with striations, which are formed by the basal infoldings of cytoplasmic membrane and mitochondria as identified by electron microscopy.

The total quantity of blood is about 5 to 6 liters, accounting for 6 % to 8 % of the body weight. Blood serves as a vehicle transporting oxygen, nutrients, metabolic waste products, carbon dioxide, cells, and hormones throughout the body. Plasma, which constitutes 55 % of the total blood volume, is the fluid that contains various inorganic salts, carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins. The plasma proteins, which exert a colloidal osmotic pressure, include albumins, globulins, and fibrinogen . Serum, a yellowish fluid, is identical with plasma without fibrinogen, a soluble protein that polymerizes to form the insoluble fibrin during blood clotting.
