beautifully illustrated guide with clear, step-by-step descriptions that teaches 
readers how to identify and then distinguish between various body structures. It 
includes more than 800 full-color photographs of models with detailed drawings 
of muscles, bones, and tendons sketched directly onto their skin, and 
complementary color illustrations showing the functional significance of each 
anatomic region.

Key Features of the Second Edition:

        techniques for the shoulder
      • New photos and illustrations for the hand, 
        hip, and foot

practitioners and students to refine their knowledge of anatomy and thus 
optimize patient care.
