    Thanks for the advice.
    It reminds me of something my surgery resident once told me. He said when you're in the operating room looking at bloody red muscles, it's not as easy to identify them as looking into a colorful Netter's.

    Oh yeah, that really right...

    Damn, you need years in surgery to become a good surgeon!

    But even after all those years, you're still a surgeon ^^

    Just kidding, nothing wrong with surgery but it's probably not for me. When learning things like this I generally learn roughly where they are, pinpointing exactly where the lines go on a picture isn't really that relevant. People vary a bit and you're there to spot it, not to draw on asymptomatic patients.

    Key points:
    1. There is no C1 dermatome
    2. On the trunk, C4 and T2 dermatomes are contiguous
    3. The thumb, middle finger and fifth digits are innervated by C6, C7, and C8, respectively.
    4. The nipple is at the level of T4
    5. The umbilicus is at the T10 level
    6. In the posterior axial line of the leg (meidal thigh). the lumbar and sacral dermatomes are contiguous
