Skills in Medicine – The Examination of the Abdomen


The examination of the abdomen is written primarily to aid medical students in developing the skills needed to examine patients with abdominal symptoms.

The book contains descriptions, photographs and video-clips that explain and demonstrate how the examination should be performed. We hope that these tools will make acquiring the necessary skills easier and more effective.
