Biomedical Engineering Research: Handbooks & Encyclopedias


Visible Body Human Anatomy Atlas

  • Visible Body Human Anatomy Atlas 2017
    Includes 3D models of the male and female, cross section, MRI scan, cadaver images, 3D moving models of muscles and bones, and more. Definition, pronunciation, and disease descriptions are available. With this resource, you can create views into the human body, rotate and zoom into body regions, dissect anatomy, view structures from all body systems, compare models side-by-side with cadaver images and diagnostic images, and test your knowledge using a 1,000+ question test bank. This application can be downloaded and installed on a mobile device or used on a computer.
