Gross Anatomy

Resources for Gross Anatomy Education

Regionally organized gross anatomy dissections and didactic information
For conveient access, we have listed the didactic material for our gross anatomy laboratory exercises regionally.
Anatomy Tables
Anatomy Tables comprise listings of all major body structures, with the essential information for each structure presented in a tabular format.
Gross Anatomy Atlas Images
Labelled images of gross anatomical specimens.
Neuronatomy Atlas Images
Labelled images of neuroanatomical specimens.
QuickTime VR Movies
Several QTVR movies of anatomical models are presented. The user can rotate and examine the specimens. We will be adding more QTVR movies during the fall of 1997.
Links to related internet sites
Internet sites which offer educationally relevant material for anatomical learning are grouped regionally. Also, relevant radiographic anatomy sites are listed.
Anatomical models available for study in the Marvin Computer Laboratory
The Marvin Computer Laboratory contains a large number of anatomical models which are made available for student use.
