Note for our readers
This atlas of anatomy, and all other atlases and books depicting human anatomy, provide illustrations that are representations of the human body. It must be remembered that no two bodies are anatomically identical. Variations in anatomy, many medically significant, may be found in the muscles, blood supply, nerves, all other organs, and the skeleton. The number of variations is finite, they have appeared repeatedly for over four hundred years, and have been cataloged. See Illustrated Encyclopedia of Human Anatomic Variation.Awards, Reviews, and Comments Book
