Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0877791252, Hardcover)Medical lingo is nearly a language in its own right, so for students of medicine or amateurs who'd like to understand their doctors' conversations, a dictionary of medical terms is a necessity. With a section on medical prefixes and suffixes, more than 2,000 new entries added since 1986, and thousands of illustrations, the recent version is 112 pages longer and a lot easier on the eyes. There's information on AIDS, biochemistry, psychiatry, and geriatric medicine, concise definitions for procedures, tests, and medications, plus all the terms and topics that hit the headlines or appear in your physical report.
