The Visible Heart

The Visible Heart

This animation focuses on the gross anatomy of the human heart. The model of the heart is semitransparent, allowing users to see through the thick cardiac muscle into the four heart chambers.

A Quick Time VR movie of a human heart is in the left window. Users can rotate it with the mouse to get a better view of structures that may otherwise be difficult to see. By using other keys, users can zoom in.
