Preface

Nearly a third of a century has passed since the first edition
of Clinically Oriented Anatomy appeared on bookstore
shelves. Although the factual basis of anatomy is remarkable
among basic sciences for its longevity and consistency,
this book has evolved markedly since its inception. This is
a reflection of changes in the clinical application of anatomy,
new imaging technologies that reveal living anatomy in new
ways, and improvements in graphic and publication technology
that enable superior demonstration of this information.
Efforts continue to make this book even more student
friendly and authoritative. The sixth edition has been thoroughly
reviewed by students, anatomists, and clinicians for
accuracy and relevance and revised with significant new
changes and updates.




KEY FEATURES
Clinically Oriented Anatomy has been widely acclaimed for
the relevance of its clinical correlations. As in previous editions,
the sixth edition places clinical emphasis on anatomy that is
important in physical diagnosis for primary care, interpretation
of diagnostic imaging, and understanding the anatomical basis
of emergency medicine and general surgery. Special attention
has been directed toward assisting students in learning the
anatomy they will need to know in the twenty-first century,
and to this end new features have been added and existing features
updated.




Clinical correlations. Popularly known as “blue boxes,”
the clinical information sections have grown, and many of
them are now supported by photographs and/or dynamic
color illustrations to help with understanding the practical
value of anatomy. In response to our readers’ suggestions, the
blue boxes have been grouped together within chapters,
enabling presentation of topics with less interruption of the
running text.
Bottom line summaries. A new feature in the fifth
edition, frequent “bottom line” boxes summarize the preceding
information, ensuring that primary concepts do not
become lost in the many details necessary for thorough
understanding. These summaries provide a convenient
means of ongoing review and underscore the big picture
point of view.




Anatomy described in a practical, functional context.
A more realistic approach to the musculoskeletal system
emphasizes the action and use of muscles and muscle groups
in daily activities, emphasizing gait and grip. The eccentric
contraction of muscles, which accounts for much of their
activity, is now discussed along with the concentric contraction
that is typically the sole focus in anatomy texts. This perspective
is important to most health professionals, including
the growing number of physical and occupational therapy
students using this book.




Surface anatomy and medical imaging. Surface anatomy
and medical imaging, formerly presented separately, are
now integrated into the chapter, presented at the time each
region is being discussed, clearly demonstrating anatomy’s
relationship to physical examination and diagnosis. Both natural
views of unobstructed surface anatomy and illustrations
superimposing anatomical structures on surface anatomy
photographs are components of each regional chapter. Medical
images, focusing on normal anatomy, include plain and
contrast radiographic, MRI, CT, and ultrasonography studies,
often with correlative line art as well as explanatory text,
to help prepare future professionals who need to be familiar
with diagnostic images…
