3D-DOCTOR, medical modeling, 3D medical imaging, image gallery Many of the images are contributed by 3D-DOCTOR users, thanks to them. If you have images or screen shots created using 3D-DOCTOR (or even the demo version) and would like to share with other 3D-DOCTOR users, you can email us your images (JPEG is the preferred format) and a brief description about the image and how it's created. We'll show it here and have a link directly to your web site. If you need to check if a 3D output file generated by 3D-DOCTOR is compatible with other programs you use, you can download some sample files using the following links (click the right mouse button and use Save Target As to get the file):

Murderpedia, the encyclopedia of murderers In 1981, Jernigan was sentenced to death for stabbing and shooting 75-year-old Edward Hale, who discovered him stealing a microwave oven. Jernigan spent 12 years in prison before his final plea for clemency was denied. At the prompting of a prison chaplain, he agreed to donate his body for scientific research or medical use. His cadaver was sectioned and photographed for the Visible Human Project. Visible Human Project Cryosection through the head of a human male. 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. A male and a female cadaver were cut into thin slices which were then photographed and digitized. The project is run by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) under the direction of Michael J.

Muscular System Anatomy, Diagram & Function Without muscle, humans could not live. The primary job of muscle is to move the bones of the skeleton, but muscles also enable the heart to beat and constitute the walls of other important hollow organs. There are three types of muscle tissue: Skeletal muscle: This type of muscle creates movement in the body. There are more than 600 skeletal muscles, and they makes up about 40 percent of a person’s body weight. When the nervous system signals the muscle to contract, groups of muscles work together to move the skeleton.

Hearing Test - Can You Hear This? We got a lot of positive feedback on our Can You Hear Like a Teenager? article, and it inspired us to take it just a little bit further. Check your hearing with a list of tones that go from 8Hz all the way up to 22,000Hz. It’s fairly common for people who are over 25 years of age to not be able to hear above 15kHz and also experience some level of hearing loss or hearing damage such as tinnitus. This online test will help you find out where your high frequency hearing cuts off. Musicians have a much higher risk of hearing loss that most people do, and many of us don’t really wear proper hearing protection.

1993: Joseph Paul Jernigan, Visible Human Project subject August 5th, 2013 Headsman On this date in 1993, Joseph Paul Jernigan died by lethal injection in Texas. Yet he lives on still. The National Library of Medicine's Visible Human Project Overview The Visible Human Project® is an outgrowth of the NLM's 1986 Long-Range Plan. It is the creation of complete, anatomically detailed, three-dimensional representations of the normal male and female human bodies. Acquisition of transverse CT, MR and cryosection images of representative male and female cadavers has been completed. The male was sectioned at one millimeter intervals, the female at one-third of a millimeter intervals. The long-term goal of the Visible Human Project® is to produce a system of knowledge structures that will transparently link visual knowledge forms to symbolic knowledge formats such as the names of body parts.
