Anatomage and the Virtual Human Project (VHP)
The Visible Human Project took on the task of creating the world’s most detailed digital body by documenting a comprehensive collection of cross-sectional images. The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Virtual Human Project (VHP) grants researchers and medical practitioners a revolutionized way to study anatomy. Virtually, 10 times more information than you’d get from an MRI scan.
The Visible Human Project is an effort to create a detailed data set of cross-sectional photographs of the human body, in order to facilitate anatomy visualization applications. The male’s frozen cadaver was dissected into 1-mm-thick slices, and the woman’s cadaver was sectioned just one-third of a millimeter. These detailed images accomplish VHP’s goal of transforming medical education.
