Finally! A way to study anatomy on-the-go without having to carry around cumbersome flashcards. Modality, a company dedicated to making educational content portable, has transformed one of the best anatomy education resources, Netter’s Anatomy Flashcards, into a portable interactive application for the iPhone and iPod Touch. I’ll definitely be testing this out when it’s released in July.

[From Modality]

Coming to the App Store July 2008.

Using outstanding anatomical illustrations from Netter’s hugely popular Atlas of Human Anatomy (4th Edition), Netter’s Anatomy allows you to carry the bestselling reference for human anatomy on your iPhone or iPod touch. Navigate through images with the flick of a finger, pinch to zoom, and tap to test your knowledge of muscles, bones, vessels, viscera and the joints. Use study mode to explore images at your own pace and quiz mode to test yourself on what you know.

The concise text reviews areas of origin, insertion, action, innervation, and anatomical relevance. The notes also include clinical correlations, where appropriate. A regional organization parallels Netter’s atlas as well as most of today’s anatomy courses.

Additional features include:

• Customize your study set by adding and removing images.
• Toggle pins on and off to explore detailed illustrations with or without annotation.
• All content is locally stored on your device for anytime, anywhere access.
• Instantly look up structures in Wikipedia (requires network connection).

Netter’s Anatomy contains over 300 fully-annotated images.
