Anatomy Atlases

This site contains several anatomy atlases that were formerly maintained at the University of Iowa's Virtual Hospital site. This page is the portal to the following atlases: Atlas of Human Anatomy, Atlas of Human Anatomy in cross section, Atlas of Microscopic Anatomy - A Functional Approach, Anatomy of First Aid - A Case Study Approach, Illustrated Encyclopedia of Human Anatomic Variation, and Lessons From a Bone Box. Each atlas has a table of contents and provides in depth information on aspects of human anatomy. The site also contains links to a number of digital libraries.

This site presents an ecletic collection of materials pertaining to Human Anatomy. The most helpful portion of the site, in my opinion, is where the cross sections are presented. I also enjoyed reading about the case studies under "Anatomy of first aid". The content seems sound, although the student might have trouble navigating the site on its own since the different portions are not well articulated.

I am using a PC running windows 7 and encountered some problems opening the videos on the "Anatomy in a box" section.
