Description: Many students learn the details of skeletal anatomy but then find it difficult
to relate that knowledge to real human beings when they present for clinical examination and
assessment. This atlas aims to fill the gap between descriptive and palpatory anatomy and to
help the student make the link between the two. It addresses the clinical appearance of normal tissues
and their function, and provides a guidance on how to examine and assess normal joints.
