VH Dissector

VH Dissector is a software application that allows you to visualize anatomical structures based on the Visible Human Project. There is a web page on the course lab page describing where the software is found on campus. Currently, computers outside of the anatomy lab do not have a tutorial built in to the software. Therefore, the following tutorial was prepared expressly for students in this course.

Veins on Cadavers. This will be a list of the veins that you are responsible for identifying on the cadavers, during the lab practical exam.

Anatomy TAs: Please report typos in the lab manual to me. Check the Lab Manual Errors page first to see if we are already aware of the error.
