Electronic media has begun to impact all areas of eduction, but a 3-D interactive visualization of specimen dissections in the laboratory environment is a unique and powerful means of teaching anatomy. As such, the complete dissection and photo acquisition of the forearm and hand, is carried out successfully. It is found that a full human body dissection can be completed and recorded with the Digital Dissection System, which will provide anatomy students with a complete, web-based, 3-D training manual.
