Presents a new way to learn about the anatomy of the human body. This book explores anatomy from four different perspectives: Regions: includes surface and functional anatomy; Systems: includes conceptual and clinical anatomy; Dissection: includes practical procedures and post-mortem; and; Imaging: includes sectional and endoscopic anatomy.
an@tomedia: A new approach to medical education
an@tomedia is a unique way to learn about the anatomy of the human body. It is a comprehensive, self-paced learning program that explores anatomy from four different perspectives:
These perspectives teach you how the body is constructed (from regions and systems) and how you can deconstruct the body (with dissection and imaging techniques).
Unlike any other anatomy multimedia program, an@tomedia combines an interactive photographic and illustrated atlas with detailed, serial dissections of real human bodies and coloured overlays. Most other available products are animated and lack detailed content, because they are designed for a specific learning task (eg. preparation for an exam). Most are also limited in their interactivity and educational value because they do not address multiple perspectives of learning anatomy.
an@tomedia is arranged in nine modules. The content for each module is distributed on a single CD-ROM, and can be used on both Macintosh and PC computers. These interactive CD modules provide additional depth and detail to complement the book, General Anatomy: Principles and Applications . Five modules are currently available:
Four more modules, Upper Limb, Lower Limb, Neck, and Head are in development and will be released at regular intervals.
PLEASE NOTE: The CD works on normal PCs/MACs. Any external application/software installed to run the CDs can cause a problem in viewing the CD.
