  • Hello everyone, I just added an attachment to this topic. I went through the most recent version of the HITS list for this exam and selected the terms associated with the pelvis and perineum (the area I find the most difficult) and provided the location and other helpful information for each term. It should not be considered complete, but I think it is a helpful overview of terms we NEED to know for the practical for the pelvis and perineum. Hopefully everything is correct--please edit if it is not. Good luck and take care! smile -- AndreaConway - 17 Sep 2006 - 17:35
  • thanks smile i emailed the class, and hopefully we can reorganize the HITS list together (chaos? or success? we will see... ) -- ShwetaNamjoshi - 15 Sep 2006 - 18:53
