Resource of the week: Anatomy.TV

What is it?
Anatomy.TV provides a complete interactive 3D model of human anatomy, featuring animations that illustrate anatomical function, biomechanics, movement and surgical procedure.

Why use it?
  • Add/remove layers of anatomy and rotate any anatomical view through 360o, label any visible structure, save as .jpeg file.
  • Select a structure and view related textual descriptions.
  • View MRI slides in three planes: axial, coronal and sagittal and compare with equivalent sections on the 3D model.
  • View movies and animations and save as .mpg files
  • Test your knowledge with interactive quizzes
  • Use the detailed study guide as an aid to revision.

Images are derived from medical scan and dissection data interpreted by a team of staff anatomists, and constructed using advanced imaging by an in-house team of graphics specialists.
Our subscription also includes the 3D real-time body software, which allows structures such as veins, muscles and organs to be added or removed from the model.
