Studying human anatomy

Human skeletal structure

Certain professions, especially medicine anatomy diagram of human body and physiotherapy, require the study of human anatomy in depth. Textbooks usually split the body into human body outline the following regional groups:

  • Upper limb — includes the hand, forearm, arm, shoulder, axilla, pectoral region and diagram of the human body scapular region.
  • Thorax — contains the region of the chest from the human body organ diagram thoracic inlet to the thoracic diaphragm.
  • Abdomen — everything from the thoracic diaphragm to the pelvic brim or to the diagram of human body pelvic inlet.
  • The back — about the spine and its components, the intervertebral disks human body anatomy and bodies
  • Pelvis and Perineum pictures of the human body — the pelvis consists of everything from the pelvic inlet inside the human body to the pelvic diaphragm. The perineum is the region between the genital area and the embalming a human body anus.
