Once you search a term, such as Arthritis, you will have a scrollable list of results.  Those terms with a checkbox are official terms that are indexed.  Other terms point to officially indexed terms with a different nomenclature.  Notes define a term, and Qualifiers provide additional terms that focus on a specific relationship to the main term.

Once you have accessed an indexed term, you may view it from a Relational (broader and narrower) view, or you may view it from a Hierarchical view, which will show its hierarchical pathway from the Root of the MeSH Thesaurus. 

When you have chosen an indexed term, you may look specifically either choose Major, which will look only at those items that have that topic as a major focus, or you may expand to Explode, which will include all narrower terms to your selected term in the search.  Then you may Add to search.
