Anatomy is a fundamental subject for first year medical students who are required to know where everything is and what it is called. This forms the basis of examination at the end of the first year. This study of anatomy is achieved through illustrated texts, the study of skeletons, bottled specimens, and the dissection of human cadavers. At this point the thought that anatomical origins or interrelationships might be clinically remote. However, be it for the palpation of the body cavity, the interpretation of a CT cross section, the location of an organ to biopsy, or listening to lung sounds, an understanding of anatomy in its clinical context is essential. This is exactly what Professor Ellis provides in this highly successful revision text.

Clinical Anatomy is a classic. Written by one of the great UK teachers of Anatomy, previous editions of this book have been an invaluable resource for thousands of medical students and trainees throughout the world.
This short revision text provides an understanding of anatomy in its clinical context. Taking a regional approach, surface anatomy is explained and followed by detailed discussion of each organ or constituent part. Clinical features are included after each anatomical description. These emphasise the clinical significance of a structure and highlight how disease or injury affects that structure. Throughout the book simple, easily reproducible colour line drawings and radiographs are used to illustrate structures.
The clinical emphasis of the book makes this text an essential purchase for medical students and especially for surgical house officers preparing for the Membership of the Royal College of Surgeon’s Exam.About the Author:
