How To Use The Virtual Anatomy Homepage
[back to main page]
|Welcome to the homepage of the Plastination Laboratory
at the University of Vienna.
Here you can learn Human Anatomy online.
At this time there is already a very large amount of pictures and information on this site, and it continues expanding.Most of the specimens shown are preserved using different methods of PLASTINATION. If you would like to know more about Plastination, just click on the round logo in the center of the main page (or scroll down to the bottom of this page for the same link):
|By clicking on the active sectors on the main page you can move on to the different parts of the virtual anatomy homepage.|
Once you have reached a subunit site, you can choose i.e. from a list of available section series
(frontal, transversal, sagittal, slices conserved with different plastination methods etc.)
or other subunits i.e.'surface anatomy' from the 'neuroanatomy' site;|
Here is an example: by clicking on the 'neuroanatomy' sector you will move on to the following site:
Here you can choose from the different slice orientations (frontal, transversal, sagittal), or you
can go to the surface anatomy of the brain ,vascular anatomy of the brain or brain MR tomography images.|
By clicking i.e. on the 'frontal' link you will move on to the actual images of a plastinated frontal brain slice series. The pictures are labeled with numbers and the corresponding structures are listed on the right of each image.
You can turn the labels off by clicking on the link above the name list 'exam mode'.
On the no-label version
there is another link in the same place bringing you back to the labeled image.('textbook mode')
The arrows in the 'navigation bar' on the left of the picture allow you to move to the next/previous image in the series and a small picture shows you the current level.
The non-labeled version of most of the brain slices has also another link on the right (under the 'textbook mode' link). It opens a corresponding MR tomography image to compare with the plastinated slice.
Every page has a link to the main page, so you can go back quickly from anywhere in the site. The navigation to every other part of the site is similar to the one shown above.
We hope you will enjoy learning anatomy online.
