Abstract

The availability of the huge amount of information provided by the data sets of the Visible Man and Women offers to medical and bio-engineering professionals and researchers possibilities previously difficult to imagine. The Vizible Human Dataset allows the generation of 3D models of any anatomical structure of the human body with a level of detail never reached before. Both 2D images and 3D models can be used for educational purposes, for simulation of interventions or for navigation inside our body, to develop computer aided surgery tools and environment, or to have a deeper understanding of human anatomy.
