This thoroughly revised edition of the popular book features diagrams of surface anatomy in colour since colour captures a reality that is more consistent with the mode of learning and is an increasingly important element for most of the students today. In addition full labelling of the figures has been done for better understanding of the anatomic details. New digital X-ray plates ultrasonographs computerised axial tomographs and MRI scans have been included to bring in a touch of their clarity. The new imaging techniques have replaced contrast radiographic techniques like bronchography and cholecystography. Ultrasonography of hepatobiliary system is more sensitive than cholecystography in detecting small stones and biliary sludge. Contrast radiographs have their anatomical value to the student so chapters dealing with these have been retained. The text retains its essential essence and easy approach which the students have liked in this book over two decades. It makes an ideal textbook for the medical students to learn applied clinical and diagnostic aspects of anatomy.
