Injection anatomy is anatomy pertinent to where the tip of the needle is located within the tissue layers. This is vastly different to surgical and radiographical anatomy. Standard anatomical text normally highlights the distribution of the structures (vascular and nerves). This is a 2- dimensional learning approach. However, then gave is a 3- dimensional structure. Therefore, teaching and learning of anatomical structures requires the understanding of depth in relation to the tissue planes. The 3 dimensional approach.
We have formatted this book to make 3-dimensional injection anatomy understandable and relevant to every day clinical practice. We sincerely hope that by bringing you the evidence base and the simplification of such a complex subject, it will enable the injecting practitioner to confidently inject soft tissue fillers with lower risk to the patient.
