This book describes the visible and palpable anatomy that forms the basis of clinical examination. It should be supplemented by self examination of normal subjects and lead to the examination of patients. The first chapter considers the anatomical terms needed for precise description of the parts of the body and movements from the anatomical position. There follows a description of pathological terms, clinical examination and the additional tools used in clinical practice. Normal heights, weights and infant milestones are tabulated. The remaining chapters are regionally organized and colour photographs demonstrate visible anatomy. Many of the same photographs are reproduced with numbered overlays, indicating structures that can be seen, felt, moved or listened to. The surface markings of deeper structures are indicated together with common sites for injection of local anaesthetic, accessing blood vessels, and making incisions. The text describes the anatomical features of the illustrated structures.
