The two CD-ROMs that comprise Histology contain images from glass slides used for the histology course at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC). The authors note, "In the study of histology, students have traditionally used microscopes to study specimens on glass slides. Here we have attempted to recreate the look and feel of a microscope in a digital format."

Slides are organized in traditional fashion by tissue type and organ system. The first CD includes "Cells and Tissues," "Immune System," and "Skeletal Tissues." The second CD has slides of the endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, and reproductive systems, the skin, and the liver and gastrointestinal tract.
