Virtual Autopsy

Designed with medical students in mind, Leicester (England) University's Virtual Autopsy site takes the student on a virtual tour of seven autopsies. Several options allow for efficient navigation of the site: Cause of Death is a self-assessment quiz students may take after "performing" each autopsy; Return to History takes the user back to the beginning of each case; and Choose another Case lets the user move between the seven cases. Each case contains nearly a dozen detailed color images of certain key parts (including tissues) of the human anatomy--lung, body, heart, head--with hyperlinks to further information. By clicking on the dictionary icon, for instance, a student links to a pop-up page with detailed descriptions of that particular condition. Aspiring pathologists are sure to find this worthwhile, and the absence of gruesome images makes it a good learning site for many budding medical scientists as well.
