A Guide To Dissection Of The Human Body 2nd Edition PDF
In this second edition of the Guide certain dissecting instructions have been
revised to increase clarity. The text, too, has been carefully gone through
and improved by making it more compatible with a range of requirements
of various anatomy courses. The terminology has been checked and brought
up-to-date according to the most recent version (1998) of the Terminologia
The major aim of the Guide remains to provide a well-rounded dissecting
manual that reinforces, but does not replace, a textbook of human anatomy.
The details of human anatomy covered here are of interest and importance
primarily in a medical context. To this end the Guide has been designed for
medical, dental, osteopathy and physiotherapy students, and for those
students studying alternative medicine where dissection of the human body
is required. It has also been planned for those postgraduate students who
are proceeding to specialize in the various clinical (surgical, radiological,
emergency medical, gynaecological) sciences and who need to revise their
anatomical knowledge through dissection.
Again it gives me great pleasure to thank Professor Colin Wendell Smith,
University of Tasmania, for his advice on the latest anatomical terms and
Professor Charles Oxnard, University of Western Australia, for his helpful
comments and practical suggestions. I also wish to thank Associate Professor
Colin Hinrichsen, University of Tasmania….
