About Visual Anatomy Lite

Visual Anatomy is a reference app that teaches students about human anatomy and physiology. Students can learn the names and functions of human organs and other structures, as well as terminology and locations related to surface anatomy. Diagrams help students visualize locations of internal body structures, and being able to tap and read about a structure is extremely convenient. The app includes lots of interactive content for students to learn, but most of it is nicely organized by body system.
