Book Preface

This book provides medical students, dental students, allied health students, and nursing students with a basic knowledge of anatomy that is clinically relevant. In this new edition, further efforts have been made toweed out unnecessary material and reduce the size of the text. The following changes have been introduced.

1. The text and tables have been reviewed and trimmed where necessary.
2. All the illustrations have been reviewed and some have been discarded where duplication occurs.
3. The anatomy of common medical procedures has been carefully reviewed. Sections on the complications caused by the ignorance of normal anatomy have been retained.
4. The Clinical Problems and Review Questions are available online at Each chapter of Clinical Anatomy is constructed in a similar manner. This gives students ready access to material and facilitates moving from one part of the book to another. Each chapter is divided into the following categories:
1. Clinical Example: A short case report that dramatizes the relevance of anatomy in medicine introduces each chapter.
2. Chapter Objectives: This section focuses the student on the material that is most important to learn and understand in each chapter. It emphasizes the basic structures in the area being studied so that, once mastered, the student is easily able to build up his or her knowledge base. This section also points out structures on which examiners have repeatedly asked questions.
3. Basic Clinical Anatomy: This section provides basic information on gross anatomic structures that are of clinical importance. Numerous examples of normal radiographs, CT scans, MRI studies, and sonograms are also provided. Labeled photographs of cross-sectional anatomy of the head, neck, and trunk are included to stimulate students to think in terms of three-dimensional anatomy, which is so important in the interpretation of imaging studies.
4. Surface Anatomy: This section provides surface landmarks of important anatomic structures, many of which are located some distance beneath the skin. This section is important because most practicing medical personnel seldom explore tissues to any depth beneath the skin.
5. Clinical Problem Solving and Review Questions:
Available online at, the purpose of these questions is threefold: to focus attention on areas of importance, to enable students to assess their areas of weakness, and to provide a form of selfevaluation for questions asked under examination conditions. Many of the questions are centered around a clinical problem that requires an anatomic answer.

To assist in the quick understanding of anatomic facts, the book is heavily illustrated. Most figures have been kept simple, and color has been used extensively. Illustrations summarizing the nerve and blood supply of regions have been retained, as have overviews of the distribution of cranial nerves.
