This anatomic atlas on CD-ROM and CD-I (compact disk interactive) demonstrates the potential for high-quality imaging on compact disk. It is the first in a series of anatomic studies on CD. It provides cross-section examinations of the sinuses and base of the skull that can be viewed and scanned in coronal, sagittal, and axial progression. A zoom feature is available in both anatomic and histological modes.

Once installed, the program is very intuitive. Orientation can be easily changed from one plane to another or to histological, computed tomographic (CT), or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) views of the area being studied. Scanning in the various planes can be accomplished in a stepwise fashion and in fast-or slow-motion video. Various structures labeled in the anatomic sections can easily be accessed with the mouse. Although no labels are attached to the histological, CT, or MRI images, the anatomy sections can be quickly switched
