Practice anatomy skills online

Posted May 23 2009 10:14pm

e-anatomy: interactive atlas of human anatomy As a medical student, I never had a decent seminar in Radiology. Week after week we would go into a tiny room, and our doctor would show us x-ray and CT images from a distance of up to 10 meters (why didn’t I get closer? – because the room was crowded!) So how on earth was anybody supposed to learn in that kind of invironment? I am not proud of it, but I did not get much out those afternoon sessions. Even so, during my clinical rotations, I was expected to recognize certain lesions on CT, but I was not too successful as you may imagine.

That is why I am so glad I fould e-anatomy! Absolutely free of charge I get to practice my anatomy skills through CT and MRI images on a virtual workstation. The image quality is excellent, the labels are very informative, and if I chose to upgrade for only 40 dollars a year I could get even better service. Other subscription options are 1 dollar for a day, or 9 dollars for a month.  Institutions can also purchase a larger package, but the price is not available on the website.

All you need is a browser that supports Adobe Flash (sorry iPhone users), and a quick, free registration. They have a wide range of available content:



Skull, Sinuses

Temporal bone


Face (Bones)

Face (Soft tissues)
