Interact with 3D Anatomy Models

  1. Interactive 3D anatomy models are designated by a cube on the topic’s icon. Click on the icon to open the model in the main screen.
  2. Brief written information about the anatomy appears to the left of the model, along with buttons that name key anatomical structures. Click on these buttons one by one to see these structures highlighted in blue in the model.
  3. Click directly on an anatomical structure to highlight it and see its name at the top of the screen. Click on the speaker icon to the right of the name to hear the structure’s pronunciation, or click on the definition icon to read its definition.
  4. Further explore the model by rotating it, hiding and fading structures to see behind them, and zooming in to take a closer look. Click on the “Tips” icon in the bottom-left corner of the screen for visual instruction on these controls.
  • Rotate with the on-screen joystick, or click and hold while dragging your mouse to turn or tilt the model.
  • Pan the model by using the arrows around the on-screen navigation wheel, hitting the space bar and clicking the mouse to move the model about the screen, or holding the middle mouse button (scroll wheel) down and moving the mouse.
  • Zoom in or out by using the zoom bar under the on-screen navigation wheel, or use your mouse wheel. You can also double-click on a structure to zoom in.
  • Select a structure by clicking on it and turning it blue. You can then hide or fade it by clicking on the on-screen buttons. To select through a faded object, hold down the T key and select it
