Anatomy is often simply defined as the science concerned with the study of the structure of biological organisms. Within all biological organisms, and indeed most mechanical devices of far less complexity than the human body, structure and function are intimately related. Thus, a more accurate definition of contemporary human anatomy would be the study of structure and its relation to function in the human body.
The study of anatomy possesses specific importance in clinical research. To understand the pathology, it is very important to understand the anatomy. If you don’t know how the body operates when everything is normal; you can’t understand why we get sick when the body doesn’t operate. So the understanding of anatomy helps us to identify certain therapies that can bring back the body to normal state from being diseased.
