First Prize in Surgery BMA Medical Book Awards & Joint Winner of The Richard Asher Prize at the 2002 Society of Authors and Royal Society of Medicine Medical Book Awards. This unique new book is designed to facilitate the comparison between normal and abnormal anatomy, both on the surface and, by the use of radiological imaging, within the body. It covers all common problems that present to the surgeon which can be detected by eye, ear or feel. It serves as a starting point to help understand how anatomy, clinical history and examination can be used to point at the diagnosis in patients with surgical conditions.Using a superb series of color photographs and radiological images, many with interpretative line drawings overlays, the book illustrates the core anatomical knowledge and shows its relevance to the clinical history and examination of patients with surgical conditions which the student or trainee surgeon will encounter. The text is short, yet comprehensive, and is closely linked to the visual presentation of the surgical disease.
