Visible Human Project® Images

The Visible Human Project® is an outgrowth of the National Library of Medicine's 1986 Long-Range Plan. It is the creation of complete, anatomically detailed, three-dimensional representations of the normal male and female human bodies. Acquisition of transverse CT, MR and cryosection images of representative male and female cadavers has been completed. The male was sectioned at one millimeter intervals, the female at one-third of a millimeter intervals.

The long-term goal of the Visible Human Project® is to produce a system of knowledge structures that will transparently link visual knowledge forms to symbolic knowledge formats such as the names of body parts.

The Visible Human CT data generated by Bill Lorensen is available for general use.

This data is resampled to 1.0mm isotropic resolution and saved in DICOM format. Both the Visible Male and Female are available either as regional tar files or as individual DICOM files.
