Overview

High-quality atlas illustrates a didactic,technical approach in finding the different anatomical structures (bones,ligaments,tendons,muscles and nerves) in the lower extremities. The photos are unique and exquisite in their presentation of the structures. Palpation is used as a diagnostic tool in the clinical examination,and these photos are an important tool for the student and clinician. Line drawings indicating appropriate anatomy introduce each section,and serve as another learning tool for the student. The atlas can be used as a textbook in gross anatomy courses and as a reference for beginning practitioners. The book will be of interest to students and practitioners in physical therapy,occupational therapy,podiatry,as well as osteopaths and other anatomy audiences in the medical,nursing and physician assistant markets.
