Thanks
By Karen L. on 14. February 2017 for Lungs, mediastinum and cardiac valves

the part on parietal pleura is a bit unclear as it confuses us when the lecture only focuses on talking about the location of inferior border of visceral pleura. Moreover, it confuses me when you only talk about the anterior , middle and posterior part of the inferior mediastinum but not mentioning that in the superior mediastinum. It makes me hesitate whether there are anterior, middle and posterior parts in the superior and what viscera can we find there...

 
Clinically Relevant Anatomy
By Shelley D. on 12. February 2017 for Thoracic Viscera

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

 
Great lecturer.
By Kristian H. on 07. February 2017 for Heart (Cor)

Very good summary of the structures, is straight to the point and is easy to follow.

 
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.
