Abstract

The multimedia study of medicine has moved into a new era with the introduction of the newest and most ambitious product from A.D.A.M. Software, Inc. The company's line of interactive medical teaching aids, first launched in 1993, reaches new heights with A.D.A.M. Interactive Anatomy, released this spring for both Macintosh and Windows 95.

This newest A.D.A.M. CD offers over 20 000 anatomical structures in four different primary views. It incorporates three-dimensional images based on the Visible Human data set, cadaver photographs from the Bassett collection, and myriad pinned anatomical images.

The opening menu offers four options. "Dissectible Anatomy" provides a layer-by-layer guided dissection tour of either male or female anatomy, down through hundreds of layers. The huge database can be viewed in multiple windows at the same time, so that a viewer can compare the same anatomical structure in anterior, lateral, medial, posterior, lateral arm, and medial arm views.
