Bones in the body by location

Update: Oct 5th, 2010

 

A medical transcriptionist will need to be familiar with the body anatomy, including the bones in the body.  Because I specialize in orthopedics memorizing the bones by location is especially helpful.  This list breaks down the bones of the body by their location and sometimes can be just the clue you are looking for when deciphering a physician’s dictation.
