Abstract

Anatomical terminologies introduce and make up a large part of medical terminology. The proper use of terms in the correct way is imperative when communicating anatomical information, to ensure understanding by healthcare professionals and scientists worldwide. Health professionals must also know the common and colloquial terms people are likely to use when they describe their complaints. Furthermore, common terms people will understand must be used when explaining their medical problems to them. It is therefore necessary that the common terms equivalent for anatomical terms be learn and used appropriately when needed. Terminologia Anatomica (TA) lists anatomical terms both in Latin and as English equivalents (e.g., the common shoulder muscle is musculus deltoideus in Latin and deltoid in English). Unfortunately, the terminology commonly used in the clinical arena may differ from the official terminology. Because this discrepancy may be a source of confusion, many texts tend to clarify commonly confused terms by placing the unofficial designations in parentheses when the terms are first used—for example, pharyngotympanic tube (auditory tube, eustachian tube) and internal thoracic artery (internal mammary artery)
