Should I choose the Regional or Systemic Undergraduate Course?

The Undergraduate Human Anatomy Systemic and Regional courses are suitable for new users without a basic knowledge of anatomy, students taking anatomy for the first time, or for those desiring an in-depth and thorough anatomy review prior to beginning an upper division course. Both courses contain the same level of content information, however the teaching resources (Lectures, Recordings, Screens and Quizzes) are arranged differently.

I cannot use the Cut Tool on organs.

Right now, the Cut Tool in Complete Anatomy is not compatible with organs. We’re working on this, and hope to have an update for you in the future. You can cut all other anatomical structures in the model, and we hope this helps you in your anatomical education! If you need to cut through the heart, check out Complete Heart which allows you to do this.

How do I access the full female model?

We will be working on a full female model once we have finished developing our new Female Pelvis model, due for release in August 2018. This will be, by far, the most detailed female pelvis on the market, with major updates to the female pelvic bones, lumbar vertebrae, fascia both mesentery and vasculature. We are striving to generate a true representation of the female anatomy and not merely a feminized version of the male anatomy as is currently most common in the 3D anatomy market.
