Radiology and surface anatomy is the working anatomy of the clinician. Some of our student/trainees will become surgeons and/or interventionalists and will have the opportunity to see the anatomy deep to the skin. Both surgical and medical specialties require radiology and surface anatomy expertise. An anatomy course should lay down fundamentals and basic concepts for the student/trainee to appreciate what is deep to the skin surface and navigate multiple image mediums with confidence.
Learning the anatomy architecture of ultrasonography is absolutely essential because ultrasound is the stethoscope of today.
