The Dictionary of Medical & Health Terminology includes common-usage terms for every entry as well as the formally correct academic Hebrew translation. This user friendly eidtion is both comprehensive and up-to-date. Useful for every level of medical and paramedical personnel, students and teachers of life sciences.

When comparing this dictionary to the Academy of Hebrew Language Dictionary of Medical Terms, its important to note that the Academy of Hebrew Language Dictionary is menukad whereas this hardbac edition is not.

However, this hardback edition seems to be arranged more logically, has more translations, and is more practical. I like that if offers the correct as well as common translations. This is helpful because one will be used in everyday conversation, but the other will be printed in journals and literature. If any wants to know why the difference, I think that sums it up. I would recommend the hardback one.
