Anatomy, the cornerstone of medical science, is the first path aspiring doctors embark on, exploring the human body in its most intimate detail. It is a fundamental study aiming to educate students about the structure and function of organs in healthy subjects, providing a strong foundation for understanding pathological processes and diseases.
This book, presented in three volumes, is a meticulously crafted work to guide you through this journey. Volume 1 focuses on the Musculoskeletal System, detailing the introduction to anatomy, bones, joints and muscles. Volume 2, Systems and Organs, delves into the rest of the body’s systems and related organs, excluding the musculoskeletal system,neuroanatomy and special sense organs. And finally, Volume 3, Neuroanatomy and Special Senses offers an insightful view into the brain, nervous system and special sense organs.
The present volume, Musculoskeletal System, is designed to be in sync with the curriculum of the musculoskeletal system as presented in medical education. The book is organized to mirror the progression of a medical student’s study: an introduction, a comprehensive exploration of the bones, joints and muscles, followed by a clinically-relevant correlation of these systems. We made this volume to help undergraduate and postgraduate students of the faculty of medicine get the critical information they need about the musculoskeletal system.
