This book describes the visible and palpable anatomy that forms the basis of clinical examination. It should be supplemented by self examination of normal subjects and lead to the examination of patients. The first chapter considers the anatomical terms needed for precise description of the parts of the body and movements from the anatomical position. There follows a description of pathological terms, clinical examination and the additional tools used in clinical practice. Normal heights, weights and infant milestones are tabulated. The remaining chapters are regionally organized and colour photographs demonstrate visible anatomy. Many of the same photographs are reproduced with numbered overlays, indicating structures that can be seen, felt, moved or listened to. The surface markings of deeper structures are indicated together with common sites for injection of local anaesthetic, accessing blood vessels, and making incisions. The text describes the anatomical features of the illustrated structures.

Professor Lumley is a prolific author. For Churchill Livingstone he has published, in addition to this book, Essential Anatomy and Surgical MCQs. He is the new author of Hamilton - Bailey's Demonstration of Physical Signs in Clinical Surgery (Butterworth Heinemann) as well as the co-author of Clinical Examination of the Patient (Blackwells). He is a surgical adviser to PasTest and has contributed to several of the revision books for MRCS and undergraduate examinations.Review:
"An extraordinary work of art that in my opinion deserves a prize. Structures are shown on anatomical figures by means of numbers, or outlines in the case of bones, or coloured green or brown for other organs. The author says that one of the objects is to illustrate palpable anatomy that ‘can be seen, felt, moved or listened to’ and should be ‘supplemented by self examination.'"
