PHOTOGRAPHS OF ANATOMY MODELS:
Available to all interested parties; these are photographs
of models and bones that we maintain in our Anatomy labs at MiraCosta College.
If you attend another college that does not have these particular
models, they will still be of use to you.
They will provide you with a novel perspective, testing your ability to
orient yourself, locate recognizable landmarks and identify structures that are
typically tested in an introductory
Human Anatomy course.
Instructions: Click on any of the
organ-system links below to see a list and thumbnail pix of the available
photos. Then click on the link of the
photo that you want to study. Most of
the images are mapped, so if you move & hold your cursor over an anatomical
structure (or in some cases a given number) the identity of that structure will
be exhibited on your screen. (If the identity does not
show up, try clicking on the image once to activate the image mapping feature.)

labeling of the photomicrographs or in the models, please contact me by email
and I will make the corrections.
