"Visible Human"

The Center for Human Simulation (CHS) is a synthesis of human anatomy and computed three-dimensional imaging. This exhibit will display a three-dimensional, high-resolution simulation of human male and female anatomy (the Visible Human) as derived from direct analysis of anatomical specimens and radiological imaging. The general purpose of this Center is to facilitate the collaboration of anatomists, radiologists, computer scientists, engineers, physicians and educators to promote the application of this and other anatomical data to basic and clinical research, clinical practice and teaching. These technological advances enable health care professionals to electronically model normal, pathologic and procedural changes in, or manipulations of, human anatomy. A major goal of the Center is to develop simulators that provide interactions with computerized anatomy in virtual space.
