Clinically Relevant Anatomy

I like the clinical correlations that Dr. Canby uses to tie in the anatomy!

Good, though some essential structures not covered.
By Nikita T. on 04. February 2017 for Thoracic Viscera

Everything is covered very well and in a comprehensive manner, but coverage of thoracic osteology is missing. There is also no lecture about the muscles surrounding the thoracic area.
