Anatomy Lab

Anatomy Lab

What better way to study human anatomy than to carry around a tiny dissected man in your pocket?  AnatomyLab, brought to us by the University of Utah, allows users to “virtually dissect” a human cadaver on an iPhone by going through real photographs of a cadaver during 40 separate stages of dissection.  It’s even been recently featured on CNN.com as one of the smartphone apps that could save your life, which I think is a bit strange…I’m not quite sure how this app could save your life, but it’s cool nonetheless.

It seems like a very useful study tool, one that I wish I had when I was studying anatomy, but there have been some reviews saying that it could improve through the use of higher resolution images. Read the full description, features and limitations here!
