Abstract

There are many ways to approach the gross anatomy of the hand. Beyond traditionally descriptive anatomy and functional anatomy, rheumatologists and other clinicians should consider additional approaches such as (a) layer-by-layer anatomy, (b) cross-sectional anatomy and (c) regional (and more importantly) and subregional anatomy. This chapter will elaborate on the above-mentioned additional approaches.
