Anatomy professors believe that the best way to learn anatomy is by dissecting the human body and working with specimens. Physicians maintain that the best way to study medicine is by seeing live patients. In order to bridge this gap between theory and practice; we created this book, where clinical cases are associated with anatomical questions.
Anatomy is the backbone of medicine. Students learn about the body structure and main organ systems in this course along with minute details, which all have a clinical significance. This book was specifically designed for first year medical students to facilitate their learning of Anatomy.
These cases are not a substitute for clinical experience with real patients, but they do reinforce critical thinking rather than superficial factual accumulation. They are based on history taking, examination and medical images. The student should approach these clinical cases as if they were seeing a real patient.
The cases are arranged by regions of the body and followed by medical images. We hope you enjoy working with and are challenged by the clinical cases and medical images presented here and you can apply this into your exams and future practice.
