The Sectional Anatomy Study Tool is a web-based program to help the user learn human anatomy through images produced by CT-scan (computed tomography) and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). The user can easily navigate through the stacks of image “slices” of each body section. The label “on” / “off” feature provides users an opportunity for self-assessment.
This tool contains a comprehensive set of both CT and MRI images of the human body in all three planes (i.e., the axial, coronal and sagittal planes).
Areas of Application
Potential users would be individuals who desire to have a thorough knowledge of human anatomy or who need to interpret diagnostic images of the human body typically found in the healthcare setting.

A BRIEF DEMONSTRATION:
B)How to Use” information screen
C)To select your viewing options:
1. Pick A Region: “Head” selected
2. Pick A View: “CT Facial Bones Coronal” selected
3. Click on “Go”
D)Results: CT Facial Bones, coronal view. Page opens with labels off. Note that we have navigated to image 9 of 29. The icon in the upper right corner indicates the approximate level within the body section.
E)Same image with labels turned “on” (on/off switch located on Navigation bar at the top).
