Selecting Anatomical Structures

Once you have launched a View from the Muscle Attachments, Region Views, Skeletal Views, or Index, you can select anatomical structures within that View using the following actions:

Selecting a single anatomical structure: To select an anatomical structure, tap it once. The structure is highlighted and a breadcrumb trail appears at the top of the screen, displaying hierarchical information about the structure, including its name (the structure's name is the last in the hierarchy and will be shown).

Tapping on the speaker icon to the right of the name allows you to hear the pronunciation of the structure. A second selection overrides the first selection (unless in Multiple Select mode; see below), so that only one structure at a time is highlighted. To deselect a selected structure, tap on it once.

Selecting multiple anatomical structures: To select multiple anatomical structures, first tap on the Tools menu at the bottom of the screen, and then tap on the "Multiple Select" button. The Multiple Select mode allows you to select as many structures as you wish by tapping each structure once. All remain highlighted, but only the most recently selected structure selected is displayed in the breadcrumb trail at the top of the screen. To deselect any selected structure, tap on it once. To return to Single Select mode, go back to the Tools menu and tap on the "Single Select" button.

Selecting an anatomical grouping: When any anatomical structure is selected, a breadcrumb trail appears at the top of the screen displaying hierarchical information about the structure, including that structure's system (e.g., Skeletal System). To select any of the larger groupings, tap once on the desired name in the breadcrumb trail. The associated anatomical structures are added to the model if necessary, selected, and highlighted onscreen.

Deselecting structures: If Multiple Select mode is on, deselect a single structure by tapping on it again, or deselect all structures by tapping the "Deselect All" button in the Tools menu. If Single Select mode is on, tap on a background area
