Book Contents | The Authors

The publication of this new textbook represents a major advance in the integration of anatomy teaching with the study of clinical medicine. Written by a Family Practitioner and two Surgeons with over 100 years of anatomy teaching between them, Illustrated Clinical Anatomy describes core anatomy in relation to normal function and to disease.

While being traditionally structured by body region, the content of each chapter is highly innovative, including highlighted descriptions of clinical relevance and clinical photographs and images, in addition to a brand new set of anatomical drawings in full colour. Each clinical condition listed in the curriculum recommended by the American Association of Clinical Anatomists is systematically described and illustrated, using the best modality to demonstrate anatomical relevance.

Illustrated Clinical Anatomy’s key features include:

  • 400 colour anatomy drawings
  • 100 specially commissioned photos of surface anatomy, with line overlays where required
  • 200 clinical colour photographs
  • 200 black and white images including radiographs, MRIs, CTs
  • core text which is supplemented by tables of higher level data
  • each chapter is completed by a self-assessment section of MCQs and SAQs (short answer questions), with answers
