Anatomy 101

The word Anatomy comes from the ancient Greek word Anatomē, which means “dissection”. This branch of medicine studies the structural organisation of the human body and its parts, organs, and vascular supply. The observation of the body parts with the only assistance of the naked human eye is known as gross anatomy or macroscopic anatomy. The study of those body structures or body tissues that are only visible using special equipment such as a microscope is referred to as microscopic anatomy or histology.

Anatomy 101 is aiming to provide comprehensive and easy-to-digest information on the structure and function of a variety of human body parts. Improved knowledge of human anatomy and how the body systems interact sets the basis to understand illnesses and make informed decisions about your health care.
