From the Publisher:

This second edition of Derek Field's unique book outlines the skills required to identify the relationship of structures with the surface, and the art of palpating through the skin.Informative and invaluable, the book unlocks a vast quantity of information unavailable by the eye and aids the practitioner to facilitate patient assessment and diagnosis using manual contact techniques.New colour illustrations show marker dots depicting exact location with clear leader lines to bones, joints, muscles, nerves, arteries and veins together with descriptions of the surface marking of organs.Essential reading for students and practitioners of medicine, physiotherapy, nursing, chiropractic and osteopathy. Indeed all those for whom the accurate location and palpation of surface structures is an essential skill whether used to determine a diagnosis or apply treatment.

Review:

"This is a well presented account of surface anatomy ... deserves a place amongst the classic pieces of medical writing."Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine
book will prove very useful to students studying pure and applied anatomy, both at undergraduate and post graduate level. It would also be an asset as a reference tool in the clinical setting, particularly in the out patient physiotherapy department."Physiotherapy
can see this book becoming a firm favourite with undergraduate students and also a useful text for trained physiotherapists who need to refresh their memory occasionally, perhaps when palpating an unfamiliar area."Manual Therapy (1998) 3(2), 112 114
