REFERENCE PLATES
THE HUMAN ORGANISM
The following series of plates includes illustrations of the major organs of the
human torso and human cadaver photos. The F
rst plate shows the anterior
surface of the human torso and reveals the muscles on one side. Then, plates
2–7 expose deeper organs, including those in the thoracic, abdominal, and
pelvic cavities. Plates 8–25 are photographs of sagittal sections and transverse
sections of the torso of a human cadaver. These plates will help you visualize
the proportional relationships between the major anatomical structures of actual
specimens.
Variations exist in anatomical structures among humans. The illustrations
in the textbook and the laboratory manual represent normal (normal means the
most common variation) anatomy.
