(Approximately 600 illustrations are new or have been re-rendered in a consistent modern style.)

Now, for the first time, Porth’s Pathophysiology is supported by PrepU, an adaptive learning system that help students learn more, while giving instructors the data they need to monitor each student’s progress, strengths, and weaknesses.
