Much of what we know about the actual process is based on the writings of early historians such as Herodotus who carefully recorded the process during his travels to Egypt around 450 B.C. Present-day archaeologists and other specialists are adding to this knowledge. The development of x-rays now makes it possible to x-ray mummies without destroying the elaborate outer wrappings. By studying the x-rays or performing autopsies on unwrapped bodies, experts are learning more about diseases suffered by the Egyptians and their medical treatment. A better idea of average height and life span comes from studying the bones.
He often combines his observations with the philosophy of Plato and Aristotle.

People in the medical profession were still learning about the human body. This is where the practice of dissection and body snatching played a role in shaping future society. The practice of body snatching and dissection during the Renaissance era greatly impacted the study of human anatomy.
Metaphors are used heavily in literature to describe and attribute meaning towards otherwise hard to describe objects and situations, as well as make comparisons and create a certain image. Medical metaphors do the same to describe diseases in a way which the general public can understand, but they have an even deeper impact as well. A study conducted in 2010 found that physicians use metaphors in almost 66% of conversations that they have when describing serious illnesses to their patients, and that the use of these metaphors truly enhanced the physician's ability to communicate (Casarett, 2010). These metaphors are used in order to relate the patients new feelings about an illness to feelings they already understand. Common medical metaphors

Using human cadavers one of the most widely used model in medical and clinical research for several decade .Considerable amount of literature have been published on different dissection methods of human body . (Romanes et al.,1986;Tank et al.,2008). These currant dissection manuals showed different approach to access different part of human body. However it is hard to find a standard literature which described the dissection method to access the coracoid process which can allow researchers, scientists and anatomists to approach this important anatomical structure with minimal injuries to the adjacent structures.
When the Spaniards reached the land that would become New Spain they found a culture with a sophisticated medical practice. Aztec physicians and healers had a wealth of botanical knowledge and were also capable of performing surgeries. Anyone making the assumption that the European medical tradition the Spaniards brought with them to the New World was in any way more advanced would be making an egregious error. The medicine practiced by the Aztecs was far superior to the medicine practiced by their conquerors. First, an understanding of the medical traditions the conquering Spaniards were coming from is necessary.

Scholars also used astrolabes and armillary sphere 's in order to study the skies, so that they could "make calculations for their calendars and maps" (Document 5). Although the Muslims made great advancements in these other fields, they made the greatest in the medical field of study. This was probably the most advanced because "Muslims had practical reasons for supporting the advancement of science" and medicine. The "rulers wanted qualified physicians treating their ills" (Document 1). The Islamic doctors learned how to treat the ill and then wrote their findings down in books.
