Additional External Resources

  1. The Canine Skeleton in Real 3D Anatomy using anatomical models to aid e-learning, created using high quality detailed photographs, resulting in photorealistic 3D models.
  2. Canine Thoracic Organs in Real 3D Anatomy, showing the heart, lungs and ribs and allowing detailed and accurate visualisation of organs "in-situ".
  3. G.R.A.C.I.E. (Greyhound Resource for Anatomical Cross-sectional Interactive Education). An embalmed cadaveric female canine specimen sectioned transversely, imaged using MRI, displayed in Perspex anatomical pots and incorporated into a series of interactive online tutorials based on regions of the body.
