Pocket Tutor Surface Anatomy

by Richard Tunstall, S. Ali Mirjalili

Surface anatomy is essential for safe and proficient practice across multiple specialties and professions reliant on the use of topographical anatomy. The term includes any anatomy that can be located, related to, accessed, examined or viewed via the surface of the body. This book consists of 9 chapters. Chapter 1 reviews core principles, terminology, palpation techniques, movements and cutaneous innervation. Chapters 2–8 each describe surface anatomy of a region of the adult body, and chapter 9 reviews the surface anatomy of the neonate. Pocket Tutor Surface Anatomy Second Edition will benefit both students and practitioners across a wide range of disciplines. It can be used as a quick reference whilst in lecture or clinic, but is equally suitable as a resource for more indepth learning.
