Gold Standard Multimedia Miroscopic Anatomy
Gold Standard Multimedia Inc. has announced the CD-ROM release
of Microscopic Anatomy, an innovative cellular anatomy tutorial the company
has developed in conjunction with the University of Florida College of
Medicine. A Macintosh-based videodisc version of the software has been
primary course material at the College of Medicine for more than three years
and students who have used it praise it as one of the most useful tools for
basic science instruction.
The new CD-ROM integrates the original two-monitor videodisc program into
a single interactive interface for both the Macintosh and Windows platforms.
This release completes Gold Standard Multimedia's "Anatomy Suite," a three-CD
series which includes the Human Anatomy and Radiologic Anatomy programs
already in use at over 90% of all medical schools in the United States.
Microscopic Anatomy is modeled after the classroom exercises of Dr.
Thomas Hollinger, Associate Professor of Anatomy and Cell Biology at the
University of Florida. It presents a logical organization of 1,200 histologic
slides and electron micrographs, each with references to degrees of
magnification,detailed explanatory text,descriptions of the staining procedures
for the various specimens, and color arrows highlighting key structures.Zoom
capabilities allow full-screen enlargement of the slides for
closer observation. The program also features a five minute movie of Dr.
Hollinger demonstrating the set-up and use of a microscope.
Because Microscopic Anatomy is based on and intended for an educational
setting, it includes extensive quizzing and review features. The interactive
"practical"and written exam formats draw on a bank of more than 1,750
questions which offer immediate feedback and reinforcement.
The price for the Microscopic Anatomy (MA) Individual CD-ROM is US$99, plus
An Institutional CD-ROM version with additional tools for end-user modification
will be available
in the coming months for US$500.
