Exploring the Anatomy of the Human Body

Post by Nunzio » 8 years ago

I just found this program that let you see different layers of anatomy including the vascular system.
You will need Google Chrome or equivalent browser.

Have fun with the cursor.

I should mention that to see the vascular system you should click on the minus sign on the left bottom and then move all the cursors to the left except for the heart. This will isolate the vascular system. Use the plus sign to enlarge the image and use you mouse pointer to rotate the image.
If you click on a vein it will tell you its name.
Have fun and let me know if you like it

If you search for 'azygos vein' you get a good view. This is how I finally visualized where it is after much wondering

I also looked at the hemiazygos vein. The hemiazygos showed the potential to be pinched or compressed between the descending aorta and the bony spinal column as it passes between the two (behind the heart)...very interesting.
It's a paradigm shift

I have to agree the Azygous is not well represented; to me it is smaller than in real life and is missing the proper arch on top.
