How does BodyViz help me teach anatomy?
Through our Pro software license, BodyViz empowers instructors with an easy-to-use content creation tool with endless flexibility. The course content produced in BodyViz software can be applied directly to the curriculum, supplementing existing (or generating new) lecture material, PowerPoint slides, lab activities, homework, quizzes, exams, etc. Along with the content creation tool, our Interactive Anatomy Content modules provide instructors with structured, ready-to-use educational material that integrates directly within the preferred learning management system, providing easy access for students and effortless progress monitoring for instructors.
How does BodyViz help students learn anatomy?
BodyViz was developed to provide students with limitless access to engaging, hands-on learning experiences with real human anatomy in any learning environment. This interactive approach enables students to virtually dissect, explore, and visualize anatomy in 3D, just as they would in the cadaver lab. With significantly increased exposure and interaction with real anatomy in 3D, students can visualize and comprehend anatomical structures and the spatial relationships between them in a much more effective manner, both inside and outside of the anatomy classroom.
What is the difference between modeled anatomy software and real anatomy software?
Real Human Anatomy is what sets BodyViz apart from the rest. Unlike the computer-generated, modeled anatomy applications, BodyViz renders actual patient anatomy into vivid, accurate 3D visualizations. Paired with our library of over 1,000 studies, students can easily and consistently engage themselves with real-life examples of natural variations, pathology, injury, developmental stages, and more.
What is the benefit of 3D anatomy software over a virtual dissection table?
Accessibility for students is the biggest differentiator between BodyViz software and virtual dissection tables. Unlike virtual dissection tables, where students are often restricted in their time working hands-on with the program due to the need for sharing, BodyViz provides each and every student with their own dissection platform. This approach gives students significantly more time working hands-on with real anatomy. In addition, BodyViz is loaded directly onto student and instructor computers, providing a zero-footprint cadaver lab that they can take with them on the go.
How does BodyViz integrate into my existing curriculum?
BodyViz can be integrated into your curriculum in any manner requested. Our team of Solution Consultants has completed installations for hundreds of anatomy instructors and will work with you to personalize a BodyViz solution to meet your individual curriculum and student needs.

What body parts is BodyViz able to visualize?
BodyViz generates anatomical studies directly from MRI/CT scans, visualizing everything shown in the imaging data in true, vivid 3D volumes. Our library contains over 1,000 studies, providing hundreds of examples of anatomy detailing the human body from head to toe. In addition to our human studies, our library also contains an array of veterinary scans. To view a comprehensive list of our studies, contact us today.
How long does it take to get up and running with BodyViz?
BodyViz has been developed with the end-user in mind, making it easy for students and instructors to become virtual dissection pros. While our training sessions for instructors typically range from 2-3 hours, students equipped with the simplified version of our 3D anatomy software (the BodyViz student license) will master the software controls within a single class period.
