INTERACTIVE SPINE (CD-ROM)
View the spine in detailed 3D with this teaching, training and reference tool. 3D models include all individual anatomical features of the entire vertebral column and spinal cord - choose views of the enire spine or focus on cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacral regions.
Peel away over 20 layers of anatomy from skin to bone and rotate the model at any stage to view and identify any anatomical structure. All structures have accompanying text and links to additional images and video clips including labeled dissections, annotated illustrations and clinical slides.
Detailed and labeled cross section anatomy can be viewed in 3 planes and compared with equivalent MRI in up to 20 slices.

“The Interactive Spine offers a 3D (at last!), computer graphic model
of the human spine with such incredible detail of all the individual anatomical
features that it far exceeds anything I ever imagined possible. This is the
definitive anatomical tool for osteopaths.”
An independent review by Robin Shepherd, D.O.
“The Interactive Spine in this reviewer’s opinion is an essential
tool for the use in teaching, in the clinic and in presentations. This software
has unmatched power to convey anatomical features in a comprehensible format
and can be used as a powerful resource to educate the jury and adjudicator”
Disability Today (US)
“The anatomy of the spine is complex, as anyone trying to understand
serial axial spinal MRI slices will tell you. The subject is ripe for a lucid
and authoritative analysis, which this CD – wonderfully and enjoyably
