The results of this study showed that there was no significant difference in effectiveness between the three student groups. The outcome of this project did not show an association between osteopathic palpatory training and increased effectiveness of clinical breast exams.The interpretation of the observations made by palpation is the key which makes the study of the structure and function of tissues meaningful. ... but without some knowledge of the language with which to ask questions, or a guide to interpret those observations in the life ... palpatory skills will develop.4 Stories are always told of physicians who developed their palpatory skills that now have become legend. One story that inspires most osteopathic students is of Dr. Ball of Eustis, Florida.
