1586630970 240 pages with Glossary, Further Reading and Index. There's never been anything like this before: the very first anatomically exact, and complete, three-dimensional, computer-generated reconstruction of actual human anatomy. These amazing color images come to life thanks to the National Library of Medicine's Visible Human ProjectT. For every structure, the database generates a incredibly detailed "wire frame" image, which then underwent contour mapping for a more realistic picture. First, the systemic anatomy appears: the skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems. Then, the focus is on the regional anatomy, including the head and neck (with brain, eye, and ear); thorax (with lungs and heart); abdomen (stomach, liver, gallbladder, spleen, intestines, kidney); pelvis; upper limb (arm, elbow, forearm, hand); and lower limb (thigh, knee, legs, and foot). It's the most fascinating mirror on our own construction ever produced, and will enthrall students, doctors, scientists, and anyone interested in the miracle that is the human body.
