The Visible Human Project
Visual Man contains over 1800 actual cross-section images of a
cryosectioned male cadaver. These images came from the body of
an executed murderer, Joseph Paul Jernigan, who was embedded
in gelatin, frozen, sliced crosswise into over 1800 millimeter
thin slices, then digitally photographed. The images are in 24
bit JPEG format.The Windows interface is very easy to use and
runs direct from the CD-ROM. Perform slideshows over specific
areas. Zooming. Great tool for learning about the body.
The project represents a major medical breakthrough that will
surley advance the progress of medicine and public health.
"This is the first time such detailed digital information about
an entire human body has ever been compiled", says A.B.
