Human Anatomy Resource

There are plenty of educational, medical, and tactical reasons to have a solid grounding in human anatomy.

For those of you with fairly modern 'puters (WinXP or better), you may want to check out Visible Body. Overview and tutorial vids are here.

Here's a blurb from the software vendor:

The Visible Body features:

* Complete, fully interactive, 3D human anatomy model
* Detailed models of all body systems
* Dynamic search capability
* Easy-to-use, 3D controls
* Seamless compatibility with Internet Explorer

This entirely Web-delivered application offers an unparalleled understanding of human anatomy. The Visible Body includes 3D models of over 1,700 anatomical structures, including all major organs and systems of the human body.

The Visible Body consists of highly detailed, anatomically accurate, 3D models of all human body systems. The models were developed by an extensively trained team with decades of experience in medical illustration and biomedical visualization. All anatomical content has been reviewed for accuracy by our panel of experts, including physicians and anatomists. The beta release includes content covered in an undergraduate-level Anatomy and Physiology course. Years of modeling and enhancement make it the most sophisticated and complete 3D model of the human body available.

The price is right, too - free.

The 3-D rotate feature is pretty darned useful, especially if you may face bad guys someday who might not have the couth to face you square on.

You know, so that you can shoot for the K5 zone like your paper targets.

Hat-tip to the good folks at Maggie's Farm.
