Built on real anatomy from the National Library of Medicine?s Visible Human Project®, the Touch of Life Technologies VH Dissector platform for medical education provides students with an integrated environment for anatomical education and reference. With the ability to interact with correlated 3D and cross-sectional views of over 2,000 anatomical structures through identification, dissection, assembly and rotation the VH Dissector helps students understand the complex three-dimensional structure of the human body. Combining a complete electronic dissector with integrated 3D and cross-sectional atlases, the VH Dissector platform provides a comprehensive resource for gross anatomy education. Used in the dissection lab, for small group discussions or as a self-study resource, the VH Dissector provides: Step-by-Step Dissection Instructions Dissections are organized regionally and each dissection starts with an overview of the anatomical features of the area along with key concepts such as muscle function, innervation and blood supply. These introductions are then followed by step-by-step dissection instructions with correlated high-resolution labeled dissection photographs to help students quickly locate and identify structures in the lab. Within each step important relationships between key structures are highlighted and demonstrated through links to the VH Dissector?s 3D and cross-sectional views helping students better understand the complex relationships of the human body.
