Teacher Review

This app is absolutely loaded with information that is presented in a way that has a real impact on its user. It offers information on the essential anatomy of 10 systems, more than 8,200 anatomical structures, and everything is offered in 3D. The details you will find in these graphics are really second-to-none. This app's graphics engine was custom-built specifically for an app so you know you're getting the ultimate best out there.

This is a multiple selection mode that lets you isolate, fade, or hide multiple or individual structures (when using the iPad), there is a custom search mode, and there are multiple search options. Use the bookmark tool to help you out, learn how to pronounce each of the structures with the audio pronunciation, and use the quiz to help you determine how well you are retaining the information.

There are options to hide, fade, isolate structures, a multiple selection mode, create customizes pins, bookmarks, slice through structures, learn correct pronunciation and Latin nomenclature, quiz mode, and the option to share anatomical images via social media.
