Based on high-resolution radiological data, the 3D Anatomy Atlas allows students to experience anatomical structures in the finest quality and the most detail. With the 3D Anatomy Atlas you can fully rotate, zoom in and view isolated muscles, bones, nerves, and blood vessels. The application offers options to hide and fade structures, allowing students to see their location in relation to other tissues, bones, and important landmarks. Detailed educational descriptions allow students to discover muscle origin, insertion, function, innervation, and blood supply among other details.
