The main object of studying anatomy is to obtain a mental image of the human body rather than to memorize numerous terms. Pictures of dissections aid the imagination of the student enormously and thus guide his work from the known to the unknown.

It is not the object of this work to teach plain anatomical facts; its aim is to show the relation of structure to function, whether it is normal function or function disturbed or impaired by injury or disease. It is explanatory and utilitarian.

The authors focus on concise descriptions of steps in the dissection process and provide key illustrations. Additionally, students can access a large videodisc image gallery which serves as a guide to the various steps of dissection.

This volume combines, in a practical manner, the subjects of surgical anatomy and operative surgery, because a knowledge of the one is essential to the proper study of the other. Drawings have been used largely for the purpose of illustration.
