Way back in ’06, the DMC’s GROCS program sponsored a student-initiated project titled “The Virtual Anatomy Atlas”. Mike Wells, Dorothy Gotlib, Jacob Kurlander and Neda Mirafzel proposed to make high resolution images of specimens from the UM’s Plastination Lab available via the web for anatomy students everywhere. During their funded semester, the students accomplished a fine proof-of-concept video.
Five years later, students Mayur Patel and Levon Mesropyan came to DL1 to pick up where that project left off. This time, the Plastination Lab’s specimens will be photographed with a Fujifilm Finepix Real 3D camera. We’ll post updates on their progress here.
