9780443067945: Surface Anatomy: The Anatomical Basis of Clinical Examination, 4e

This innovative and highly praised book describes the visible and palpable anatomy that forms the basis of clinical examination. The first chapter considers the anatomical terms needed for precise description of the parts of the body and movements from the anatomical positions. The remaining chapters are regionally organised and colour photographs demonstrate visible anatomy. Many of the 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, biopsying organs and making incisions. The accompanying text describes the anatomical features of the illustrated structures.

  • Over 250 colour photographs with accompanying line drawings to indicate the position of major structures.
  • The seven regionally organised chapters cover all areas of male and female anatomy.
  • The text is closely aligned with the illustrations and highlights the relevance for the clinical examination of a patient.
  • Includes appropriate radiological images to aid understanding.
  • All line drawings now presented in colour to add clarity and improve the visual interpretation.
  • Includes 20 new illustrations of palpable and visible anatomy.
  • Revised text now more closely tied in with the text and with increasing emphasis on clinical examination of the body.

About the Author:

Professor Lumley is a prolific author. For Churchill Livingstone he has published, in addition to this book, Essential Anatomy and Surgical MCQs. He is the new author of Hamilton - Bailey's Demonstration of Physical Signs in Clinical Surgery (Butterworth Heinemann) as well as the co-author of Clinical Examination of the Patient (Blackwells). He is a surgical adviser to PasTest and has contributed to several of the revision books for MRCS and undergraduate examinations.

Review:

"An extraordinary work of art that in my opinion deserves a prize. Structures are shown on anatomical figures by means of numbers, or outlines in the case of bones, or coloured green or brown for other organs. The author says that one of the objects is to illustrate palpable anatomy that ‘can be seen, felt, moved or listened to’ and should be ‘supplemented by self examination.'"
