The Visible Human Project to develop a three-dimensional anatomical visualization of the entire human body, an entire virtual cadaver, has now acquired another tool in its inventory of medical education resources. The Virtual Human CD-ROM, published by Gold Standard Multimedia, is offered as the first truly three-dimensional anatomical software. It combines the segmented and classified Visible Human database created from 1800-plus cross sections of the human body with a state-of-the-art volume rendering system, enabling the user to create life-like pictures of the human anatomy.
