Web Resources

Clinical Cases

Clinical Cases and Images is a useful resource that brings together various pearls of medical wisdom and aims to bridge the gap between clinical theory and practice.
This well organized site contains a good collection of case histories, with links to imaging, and clinical examination and procedure websites, making this a feature rich site with a strong focus on clinical learning.

Hosford Muscle Tables

This web site is an index containing detailed information about the skeletal muscles of the human body. Included is each muscle's origin, insertion, action, blood supply and innervation

Hypermuscles in Action

This is a multimedia interactive HTML document which will help medical students learn the muscle actions of the human body. Each muscle action is listed in the Table of Contents. You can read about each movement as you travel down the page or you may go directly to a movement for a description by clicking on the blue title. An asterisk (*) indicates that a movie can be played at that location. Click on the blue heading to see the movie.

Surgical Procedures

This page provides links to prerecorded webcasts of surgical procedures. These are actual operations performed at medical centers in the United States since January 2004. The videos last an hour. Please note that you cannot send in questions by email, though the webcast may say that you can, because you are not seeing these videos live. Most videos dated after July 15, 2007 are in Flash format. You will need Flash to view the programs.

Visible Body

The Visible Body consists of highly detailed, anatomically accurate, 3-D models of all human body systems, developed by a highly trained team with decades of experience in medical illustration and biomedical visualization. The Visible Body allows all users to visualize and quickly and easily explore relevant areas of the human body, enabling them to explain how more than 1,700 anatomical structures—including major organs and systems—work together.
