Take a CD-ROM reader and a computer loaded with Microsoft Windows 3.1, preferably equipped with at least a 17-inch monitor, and one can embark on a dazzling journey through the temporal bone and posterior cranial fossa. This is the second in a series of interactive anatomy software programs published by Elsevier Science. Dr Berend Hillen of the Department of Functional Anatomy, Utrecht University, the Netherlands, is the editor of the series, the first disc of which was devoted to the paranasal sinuses and the anterior skullbase.
Installing the software is a nearly bullet-proof process. The installation is accomplished through the Windows file menu, which runs the install program from the compact disc, installing the necessary drivers and taking up about 3.5 megabytes on the computer's hard disk. A CPU of the power of a 486-66 MHz, 8 MB of RAM, and at least a double-speed CD-ROM reader optimizes viewing.
