Anatomy is among the most visual of the sciences.
Because the diagnostic tools such as MRI, CT, etc. have become routine medical procedures, sectional anatomy has drastically become more important part of anatomy courses in Medical schools. My goal was to design a practical interactive visual application for students studying anatomy that would help them understand complicated sectional anatomy of human body.
I have used 360 sectional images from the visible human male dataset of National Library of Medicine.
This atlas app enables the user to navigate through the human body and select an sectional region of interest to examine fine details of anatomy. The program itself was designed to afford a great deal of interactivity and to be very easy to use. Each anatomical structure can be identified by just taping finger on it. They are all labeled both in English and Latin based on Terminologia Anatomica of FCAT.
