Acland's Video Atlas of Human Anatomy

About this Resource

Acland’s Video Atlas of Human Anatomy supports the teaching and learning of anatomy with more than three hundred narrated videos of real cadaver specimens. Faculty, staff, and students can access Acland’s online via a desktop computer, tablet, or smart phone and can use the searching and navigation tools to find the videos needed for course or exam review.

Acland’s includes information about the upper extremities (shoulder, arm, forearm, and hand); the lower extremities (hip, knee, leg, ankle, and foot); the trunk (spine and musculoskeletal structures of the thorax, abdomen, and pelvis); the head and neck (head, facial skeleton, base of the skull, nasal cavity, oral cavity, larynx, facial muscles, scalp, brain, nerves of the head and neck, blood vessels of the head and neck, the eye, and the ear); and the internal organs (thoracic organs, abdominal organs, and the reproductive system).

Features include rotating videography which allows users to see anatomical specimens in real life 3D; easy to locate video clips via keyword search, A-Z index, and contents list; email functionality which allows users to send video clips to other users; a “favorites” tab which allows users to save videos for quick reference during lectures or labs; downloadable PDF transcripts for additional review or student and patient handouts; and regional organization of videos that take users to relevant parts of the body.
