Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: George K. Niiro, PhD (Midwestern University)
Description: This interactive CD-ROM provides information about the musculoskeletal system. PC requirements include a 468 processor with 8 MB of RAM and Windows 3.1 or Windows 95. Mac requirements include a 68040 processor at 25 MHz with 4 MB of RAM. Installation of the program was flawless and the program started up without a hitch.
Purpose: The purpose is to present an interactive 3-D computer graphic model of the human skeleton showing bony detail, landmarks, and muscle attachments.
Audience: This program is intended for students of anatomy in graduate, medical, and allied health schools. Residents, attending physicians, and surgeons might also find it valuable. Undergraduate students taking an anatomy course with a more selective focus (i.e., the musculoskeletal system) might also find it useful.
Features: This is a computer-generated, 3-D model of the human skeleton based on CT scans of an actual skeleton showing bony details and muscle attachments. Given these limited objectives (see comments below), this is, for the most part, a successful program. The 3-D models show muscle attachments quite well, but they lack detail. Photographs of a skeleton would show more detail. Navigation is a strength of the program; I found moving from one region of the skeleton to another quite simple. Clicking on the 'Skeletal Navigator' instantly brought up the desired part of the skeleton on which bony landmass or muscle attachments could be called up just as quickly. In an adjoining window, appropriate text material is presented. The text also contains links to labeled images of actual soft tissue dissections. Also included are a search engine, sound clips, and clinical tidbits. Quizzes are included that can be used to test the user's knowledge.
Assessment: The professional edition provides the ability to add customized quizzes and slide presentations and the package does deliver on that promise. However, the customized quizzes are limited to the questions already included with the program. Authors of quizzes merely select which questions are asked. I, for one, would not want to take the time to create quizzes or slide presentations solely on the musculoskeletal system (see related review of the student edition). In courses that I teach, blood vessels, nerves, connective tissue structure, etc., need to be equally considered. For these reasons, the professional edition provides, in my judgment, little added value. I do not see the need for different editions of the product.
