Utilizing the Visible Human Data Set, commissioned by the National Library of Medicine, the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse is developing a set of software applications which will provide anatomy students with In such an environment students assume primary responsibility for their examination of anatomical data and take an active role in applying their existing knowledge to the identification and visualization of new anatomical detail.
The software environment consists of three components organized in a client/server model. The client tools consist of a data set browser and image annotation application. The client tools communicate with image generation daemons. The client tools are written in NEXTSTEP (soon to be JAVA) and are run on Pentium based machines. The image generation daemons are run on an HP PA-RISC K-200 server which also houses the Visible Human data set.
The gallery contains a collection of images, stereo-pairs and animations (MPEG and QuickTime(TM)) generated using the Digital Cadaver (TM) system.
