BoneLab is a teaching and learning tool for medical professionals, students and anyone who is interested in skeletal anatomy. It is based on the integrated human 3D skeleton model with the highest level of detail presently available. BoneLab is a free program for Windows XP.
Students can interact with the 3D model and create new views, colorize it, add annotations and notes and save it. Instructors can use BoneLab to teach and present anatomical content to students and patients, using predefined views.
A dictionary of annotation words is automatically maintained and helps to quickly access all views related to a specific anatomical term. By adding views and annotations, the personalized dictionary will grow and will adapt to individual anatomical content, language and learning habits. The BoneLab user interface is view-centric like Google Earth's. Very compact view files can be exchanged and distributed to other BoneLab users, which makes it a valuable tool for collaboration and distance learning.
