Understanding abdominal anatomy and physiology is essential to understanding the human body as a whole. The abdomen contains all of the digestive organs as well as the liver, kidneys and gallbladder. In addition, many important blood vessels travel through the abdomen, including the aorta and the inferior vena cava. As a future or current health care professional, insight into this region of anatomy will be critical to your success.
Many conditions and diseases affect the abdomen and its structures. Therefore, a firm grasp of abdominal anatomy is necessary to effectively diagnose and treat patients. Who better to review abdominal anatomy with, than an experienced expert?

The description of the layers of tissue above vs. below the arcuate line has been explained to us in the PA anatomy class, yet remained unclear. After the visuals and the step-by-step walk through in your lecture, finally, I understand! Thank you! :)
Dr. Pickering walks through each piece of parietal and visceral peritoneal pleura and makes it so much easier to understand. Great video!
Best video I have found on the inguinal canal! Simple, clear and easy to understand.
This subject was so difficult to study in my textbook, but this lecture series on the inguinal canal has been a life-saver! Dr. Pickering really clarifies this topic for you.
