Published on supports the teaching of anatomy with more than 300 narrated videos of REAL cadaver specimens. This dynamic tool can be used during lectures, for review purposes before or after lab, and as a supplement to dissection, particularly if access to cadavers is limited.

  2. 2.  Only video atlas to show human specimens in natural color, in combination with instructive audio, to bridge cognitive gap between dissection lab and independent review  Web optimized for anytime/anywhere access, with intelligent search/navigation tools, email and save to “my favorites” functionality, PDF transcripts  Easy integration into LMS for courses or IP authentication for broad institutional access
  3. 3.   WHAT IT IS: Site supports teaching and learning of anatomy in ‘real-life 3D’ (300 video clips + audio featuring real anatomical specimens captured through rotating videography) HOW IT’S DELIVERED: Institutionally via IP authentication, referring URL, or user name/password OR individually via purchase at online store or local/online bookseller via ‘hard product’ + code Institutional version (annual): 978-1-4511-2776-8 / pricing varies Single User Version (access card for 1-year online subscription): 978-1-4511-4500-7 / $99.95 Single User Version (1-year online subscription): 978-1-60913-434-1 / $99.95 Single User Version (6-month online subscription): $79.95
  4. 4. Who Is Intended For? Medical and dental students. In first-year studies, the Video Atlas is productive and time efficient as a preview, as an adjunct to dissection, and as a review tool. It is also helpful for students who need to re-learn clinically relevant anatomy for their surgical rotations. Since surgeons in training must re-learn anatomy at many stages in their careers the Video Atlas is popular with interns and residents in surgical specialties. Medical practitioners. Practicing surgeons and physicians value the Video Atlas as a quick way to renew their anatomical knowledge, and also as a way to help their patients understand an ailment, injury, or procedure. Allied Health students. The Video Atlas is widely used by students and teachers in nursing, physical and occupational therapy, kinesiology, and massage therapy. For students who don't have access to dissection facilities, the Video Atlas provides an appreciation of the real human body and a direct understanding of the mechanics of body movement. Secondary and undergraduate students. The Video Atlas is used in many high school and undergraduate anatomy classes. The videos can be understood without any prior knowledge of anatomy. The narration is delivered in simple, everyday language, apart from the necessary use of the anatomical names of structures.
  5. 5. Unique Features Fresh human specimens in their natural colors The Video Atlas images are direct video recordings of real human anatomic specimens. The cadavers used were not stiffened or discolored by embalming. Their tissues retain the color, texture, and mobility of the living body. Real movement Besides showing the structure of the human body in its natural beauty, the Video Atlas shows moving structures - muscles, tendons and joints making the same movements that they make in life. Exquisite dissection The dissections were done by skilled clinical anatomists, using the finest surgical techniques. Studio lighting accentuates the shape and definition of the structures. A black background enhances their outline. Building complex structures step-by-step In each part of the body, the Video Atlas starts with structures that give you the foundation for your understanding. The bones are shown first, then joints and their movements, then the muscles, and then the blood vessels and nerves. This is the reverse of the order that is seen in dissection, where the foundation is not understood until the end.
  6. 6. The Functionality  Search by TOC  Index  Keyword  Email a clip to a student or colleague  Save clips to ‘my favorites’ for quick reference  PDF transcripts
  7. 7. New in 2.0!  Self-Assessment  Multiple choice “need-to-know” identification questions (250 total or 50 per region/volume) with still images or short clips taken from Acland videos. Student will answer questions in test mode, then receive results with prescriptive remediation in the form of short rationales accompanied by links to the relevant Acland video for review. Mirrors the practical exam given in most North American Gross Anatomy labs.  All 320 clips to be updated with increased audio volume levels  Instructor User’s Guide and FAQs  Mobile Optimized View
  8. 8. Who Is Dr. Acland? Dr. Robert Acland is a professor emeritus in the Department of Anatomical Sciences at the University of Louisville School of Medicine. He gained his expertise in instructional video during his first career, as a pioneer and teacher of microsurgical techniques. In his second career as a clinical anatomist, Dr. Acland directs his school's renowned Fresh Tissue Dissection Laboratory, where he teaches anatomy to students and surgeons, and pursues anatomical research. Working with fresh, unembalmed cadavers, Dr. Acland has pioneered new and highly effective techniques of anatomical videography that give the viewer a clear three-dimensional understanding of spatial relationships.
