The Visible Human Project is "a digital image library of volumetric data representing a complete, normal adult male and female.
Moreover, with the completion of the first phase of the visible human project, which provides high-resolution MR (magnetic resonance) and CT (computed tomography) imaging scans of male and female anatomies, we can seriously contemplate coupling organ-level models that integrate anatomical, biophysical, and physiologic data to produce a computer-based virtual human.
New initiatives at NLM include the Visible Human project, a digital image data set of the entire body utilizing magnetic resonance imagery (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans; DocView, a Windows application that can provide document images over the Internet; and Online Images from the History of Medicine (almost 60,000 images are available).
To ensure anatomical accuracy, the virtual patient model incorporated high-resolution digital images of human anatomy from the National Library of Medicine's Visible Human Project.
Others which are in progress and which have major implications for health sciences libraries include, but are not limited to, the Unified Medical language System (UMLS), expert systems such as AI/RHEUM, and the Visible Human Project.
The set of surgical anatomical models created for those modules was constructed while referencing the National Library of Medicine's Visible Human Project as well as patient specific CT and MRI volumes.
The Visible Human Project of the US National Library of Medicine has transverse CT, MR and cryosections, at precise millimeter intervals, is the world's largest data set of 3D male and female anatomical information.
