Computer-based Histology Atlas for Human Anatomy and Cell Study
Histology Atlas with 5000 Color Images and Instructional Explanations
Histology is the study of the structure and function of the cells, tissue and organs of the human anatomy as viewed through a microscope. The Histology Time on CD helps students learn anatomy and cell biology through a computer-based histology atlas of cells, tissues, and organs. The CD contains more than 5,000 light microscope images organized into nineteen chapters covering cytology, tissue types, and organ systems. Each chapter has a series of histology, descriptions and explanations in an instructive format, and practice questions combined with instructions and self-testing modes. With more than 5,000 images, the Histology Time on CD is far ahead of the many other histology CDs now available, most of which contain around 1,000 images. This atlas brings the histology laboratory into the students' home environment and can be used on any laptop computer. The CD is a very useful supplement to medical or general histology courses.
Learning Modes of the Histology Atlas CD for Anatomy and Cell Biology Study
Within each chapter, a series of histological images is available for study in one of four modes:
- MicroLab, with descriptions and explanations of images in instructive format
- Quiz Time, a series of image-based identification questions
- Multiple Choice exam, a series of multiple choice questions not based on images
- K exam, a series of K-type questions also not image based
The practice questions are short, non-vignette type questions that test the student's ability to identify structure or test the student's knowledge of structure-function relationships. Practice questions are delivered in random order each time questions are accessed so no pattern can be detected or inferred. Items can be flagged, and a subset of questions generated for repeated review.
FEATURES OF THE HISTOLOGY TIME ON CD

HistoArtTM When Histology Becomes Art
HistoArtTM is a unique combination of the disciplines of histology and art. When viewed through a microscope, the cells, tissues, and organ systems of the body reveal unique patterns and textures that can be digitally captured into visually attractive, colorful, and striking pieces of art. The art serves as a reminder that the body is beautiful. 50% of the net revenues from HistoArtTM support medical education.
