Overview

Anatomy is a fundamental subject for first-year medical students. At this stage in their careers, wards and bedsides are far from their minds and the thought that anatomical origins or interrelationships might be clinically relevant is remote. Thus, once the ward is reached, anatomical facts are largely forgotten. However, be it for the palpatation of the abdomen, the interpretation of a CT scan, the location of an organ to biopsy, or listening to lung sounds, an understanding of anatomy in its clinical context is essential. This is what Professor Ellis's highly successful revision text provides.

The structure of the book is regional, and begins with surface markings, followed by detailed discussion of each organ or constituent part. These anatomical descriptions are immediately followed by Clinical Features, the component which makes the book unique.
