About Concise Medical Dictionary:
This compendium features more than 20,000 current medical terms, many of which are generally not included in ordinary medical dictionaries or only briefly and inadequately defined. Focusing on the real-world language of practice, and including coverage of basic science, the Concise Dictionary of Modern Medicine provides readable, comprehensible definitions of terminology, jargon, acronyms, neologisms, and casual speech heard in today's practice.
About Dr. Joseph Segen:
A pathologist with a passion for informatics and an indefatigable collector of stray nuggets and arcane factlets, Dr Segen has produced another cornucopia of medical infobites cast in his trademark staccato style. His latest dictionary defines not only formal terminology but also jargon, neologisms, casual speech, and brand names pertaining to both the basic sciences and clinical medicine, with special attention to current topics in molecular biology, public health, medical education, legal medicine, alternative medicine, and professional practice issues.
