About the Visible Human Project

The NLM Visible Human Project® has created publicly available complete, anatomically detailed, three-dimensional representations of a human male body and a human female body. Specifically, the VHP provides a public-domain library of cross-sectional cryosection, CT, and MRI images obtained from one male cadaver and one female cadaver. The Visible Man data set was publicly released in 1994 and the Visible Woman in 1995.

With the help of Dr. Richard Bruce, Daryn Belden, and Bryan Cheng I have downloaded the source data, organized and reformatted the images using Horos (Mac) and Retrobatch, and uploaded the images in both Radiopaedia (JPEG) and Pacsbin (DICOM) to help inspire and guide teachers and learners as they review cross-sectional anatomy highly relevant to radiology.
