Accessing Cyber Anatomy

The resource, Cyber Anatomy, has been a hot topic of discussion lately. Some of you may have seen the YouTube Video showing students using the 3-D version, or you may have heard the online version being discussed during this year’s State of Carver College of Medicine Address.  If you have not heard about it, Cyber Anatomy is a resource that allows one to view anatomical structures in a 3-D format. The images can be rotated, peeled and otherwise manipulated.  Recently, both Harvard Medical School and Cornell have started using the 3D adaption, but it was at Hardin Library for the Health Sciences first.

Hardin Library currently provides access to both the online version and the 3D version on Cyber Anatomy.  To access the online version, you only need a computer that is hooked up the internet and a HawkID and password.   You can access the software by going to the Hardin Library website and clicking on the link for “Health Sciences Resources A-Z.” You will need administrative rights to the computer so that a 3DVIA player plug in can be installed. 

If you are interested in a more immersive experience, we have the 3D version of Cyber Anatomy in the Hardin Library Simulation Center.  You will need to reserve Cyber anatomy ahead of time.

If you have any questions about this software or the Hardin Simulation Center, please contact Amy Blevins, Clinical Education Librarian.
