Internists tend to leave anatomy in the hands and minds of the surgeons, except in their localized fields of interests. This isolation is particularly brought home when one peruses a profusely illustrated book like this one.
This is clinical anatomy, topographic anatomy, which any physician can use. Unlike conventional texts, it is correlated with the person and with clinical conditions and interspersed with practical, clinical hints in the recognition and therapy of painful conditions.
It is fun to look over the pictures and to learn again of the wonders of the human body. Exact techniques are given of various block, aspirations, therapeutic injections. The section on collateral circulation is especially valuable and can easily be remembered.
