Visible Human Project

Visible Human Project Overview  

The Visible Human Project is an outgrowth of the NLM's 1986 Long-Range Plan and has resulted in the creation of complete, anatomically detailed, three-dimensional representations of the normal male and female human bodies.

A Guided Tour of the Visible Human  

As part of The Visible Human Project has generated over 18,000 digitized sections of the human body. This introduction and tour uses images and animals from the project to teach key concepts in human anatomy.
