A three-dimensional presentation of human anatomy, narrated by Dr. Acland and demonstrated on fresh, unembalmed human specimens. Every joint and muscle is shown moving as it does in life, and an indexing reference booklet is provided for review. Indispensible for the serious student of anatomy or any work involving a comprehensive understanding of human movement.
The videos show you true images of real, exquisitely dissected human anatomical specimens, in three dimensions. As the camera moves from one viewpoint to another, the specimen appears to rotate in space, letting the viewer experience it as a three dimensional object. Acland's Video Atlas uses fresh, unembalmed specimens that retain the color, texture, mobility¢and beauty¢of the living human body.
A concise synchronized narration runs throughout the video. As each new structure is shown, its name appears on the screen. There is a self-testing feature at the end of each section. A visible time signal shows where you are in the program. The reference booklet gives you both an alphabetic and a chronologic index, with time locations for each structure.
- For students, Acland's Video Atlas is a time-saving aid to first-time learning, an effective way to relearn anatomy for clinical rotations, and a time-efficient tool for review at test time.
- For clinicians in training and in practice it assures a swift renewal of anatomic knowledge.
- For teachers, Acland's Video Atlas shortens the time needed to provide immediate, satisfying explanations of three-dimensional structure.
