Each anatomical slice page of this site contains a viewer applet as shown in Figure
1. If you can't see an abdominal slice below, please see the
Figure 1: labelled anatomical image
The labelled anatomical
image is presented in a viewer that provides a number of useful functions for the
- The labels can be turned on or off by toggling the labels on/off button on the bottom
left of the image viewer.
- The user can zoom in on the image by using the right mouse botton over the image

- By clicking on the right mouse button and holding the SHIFT key down, the user can
pan around a zoomed image.
- Brightness and contrast can be altered using the controls at the bottom of the viewer.
- The settings remain the same from page to page so that the user is not required
to continually readjust them.
The orientation map (Figure 2) allows the
viewer to navigate directly to another slice (rather that sequentially as is required
when using the arrows below the viewer
applet. The user can click on
any of the green bars on the orientation map to switch directly to that slice.

Figure 3: Correlated image thumbnail
To the right of the orientation map is a thumbnail (Figure 3) of the correlated image(s). Click on an image thumbnail to take a closer view of it and its labels. Note that these are not
precise correlates (see Subject Information for a description
of the differing characteristics of the subjects).
