The purpose of this dissection of the human shoulder is to gain an in-depth knowledge of the structures located inside, to identify if there is any pattern in which parts of the shoulder joint begin to degenerate first, and if certain pathologies in the shoulder can lead to the development of new ones. The expected results of this project are to successfully complete a full dissection of the shoulder region so that each structure remains intact and identifiable and without causing destruction to pathologies that already exist. A variety of unique dissection techniques will be used in order to produce the most precise views of the shoulder region.
