Video

  • This podcast will demonstrate how to use the Anatomy.tv.
  • Anatomy.tv contains information about regional anatomy, exercise, injuries and acupuncture, and systemic anatomy; including layered 3D interactive anatomical diagrams and models, MRI scans and anatomical cross sections and animations and movies.
  • On loading Anatomy.tv you are presented with a menu detailing the different features of Anatomy.tv. I will start by looking at the regional anatomy. I am going to look at the hand, which will open in a new window.
  • At the top of the screen there are tabs showing different views, including MRIs, slides, movies and animations. The left hand of the screen displays the 3D model with additional text relating to the anatomical part. At the bottom of the screen are controls to rotate, zoom, print and save the model, as well as a scrollable list where you can choose which layer to look at.
  • I will look at the systemic edition. Select other products from the left hand menu and then select systemic. This will open up in a new window. This page lists of each of the different systems that are available to examine. I am going to choose blood vessels.
  • This page displays an entire systems overview, with a layered model and written description. Use the options at the bottom of the interface to select the layers and rotate the model.
  • For more help and information, please ask a member of staff in the Library or visit the Library web site.
