- Hardin Simulation Center
Hardin has many simulation devices available to help practice basic skills. A list of those available can be found by clicking on this link.
- Cyber Anatomy 3D
This interactive software allows students to dissect and explore the human anatomy in 3D.
- Anatquest:Anatomic Images Online
The U.S. National Library of Medicine's Visible Human Project has produced high resolution (4096 x 2048 x 24 bits) cryosectional color images of human anatomy. The Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications, an R&D division of the NLM, through its Communications Engineering Branch, has created a database for this image dataset as well as for 3D rendered images of anatomic objects created from cryosectional images (cross-sections or slices).
- E-anatomy: Human anatomy, medical imaging, and illustrations
This website allows users to see images and illustrations of various parts of the anatomy. Several portions can be accessed for free while some others require a subscription. Registration is also required.
- Google Body
Google provides a 3D model of the human body. Using this program you can look at various parts of the anatomy and share what you are seeing with others by copying the URL. Must have google chrome or another compatible browser installed on computer.
- Human Anatomy Online
Allows the user to pick a body system and click on various parts to learn more about it.
- The Visible Human Project®
The Visible Human Project® is an outgrowth of the NLM's 1986 Long-Range Plan. It is the creation of complete, anatomically detailed, three-dimensional representations of the normal male and female human bodies. Acquisition of transverse CT, MR and cryosection images of representative male and female cadavers has been completed. The male was sectioned at one millimeter intervals, the female at one-third of a millimeter intervals. Source: National Library of Medicince Website
eSkeletons allows users to select a skeleton and view various bones including morphology, insertions, and origins of these bones. There is also a PDA source available for download. Source:University of Texas at Austin
- Inner Body
This free website provides labeled images of different parts of the human body including skeletal, digestive, muscular, lymphatic, endocrine, etc.
- The Second Look Series
The Second Look series is free a self-review and evaluation tool for learners who are about to take a histology quiz or exam. The files review the important material in a concise question style. For best use, open the file within the Power Point program and run it as a slideshow. Also available for the iPad (but only connective tissue comes free and preloaded).
