Anatomy

Anatomy is a combination of the study of medicine and biology, since its main concern is the studying of the structure of all living things, it can be with regards to animals, human and plants. Anatomy is divided into sub categories, which are the gross and microscopic anatomy. Gross anatomy is the study of all structures that is visible to the eye. It can be seen clearly and does not need an aid of a microscope. Microscopic anatomy on the other hand is the complete opposite of gross anatomy. A person would need the use of a microscope; an example would be the study of cells.

The word "anatomy" comes from the Greek words "ana," meaning "up," and "tome," meaning "a cutting." Studies of anatomy have traditionally depended on cutting up, or dissection, but now, with imaging technology, it is increasingly possible to see how a body is made up without dissection.
