New subscription to Visible Body’s Human Anatomy Atlas & Anatomy and Physiology Modules
Visible Body is a 3D visualization and learning tool used to explore the systems of the human body.
The “born digital” models are created by graphic artists specializing in medical illustrations. The learner can manipulate the models to rotate them, view cross-sections, add or delete different organ systems, and virtually dissect by fading or removing different layers.
The Human Anatomy Atlas contains more than 4600 anatomical structures, including all major organs and systems of the human body. Features include detailed definitions (in both French and English), the ability to search for specific structures, save custom 3D views and create annotated notes.
Anatomy and Physiology provides anatomy and physiology’s core concepts in self-guided units through illustrations, 3D models and animations. This module was created to complement the learning needs of university students taking Anatomy & Physiology courses and naturally aligns with textbooks and course materials. Quizzes and unit reviews allow learners to assess and track their progress
