For medical students and more generally for learning purposes, an open-source website with a 3D human body model, in which we can "navigate" (zoom and move/walk), a little bit like a "Google Streetview / Maps" user interface would be very useful.

Where to find such a resource?

Example of use case: I find it quite difficult to understand how pharynx/larynx/esophagus/mouth cavity/etc. are linked, and being able to "walk" in this zone in a 3D mode would be very insightful for learning purposes.

  • Are you a medical or biology student? If not, what level of details do you expect? – Jan Dec 9 '19 at 13:13
  • @Jan I'm interested for a high level of details indeed (targeted to medical or biology student) – Basj Dec 9 '19 at 13:21
  • I don't think there are any free 3D interactive videos available online - it needs to be a software that enables you to "walk through," anyway. This is a random example, looks promising: visiblebody.com/anatomy-and-physiology-apps/human-anatomy-atlas , it's 25$, which is surprisingly cheap if you ask me. This is not an option? – Jan Dec 9 '19 at 13:30
  • I'm trying human.biodigital.com/… since 30 minutes and it seems quite close to what I was looking for. – Basj Dec 9 '19 at 14:03

    @BobOrtiz Thank you for your comment, I just edited! – Basj Dec 9 '19 at 20:44

I'll update this answer if I find new useful resources.

I'm now trying this website: https://human.biodigital.com/view?id=production%2FmaleAdult%2Fmale_region_head_07&lang=fr

and it helped me a little bit to understand the laryngopharynx zone. The navigation is 3D (pan / zoom).
