Wilson MuseumThe prosections in the Wilson Museum are of high quality and in many instances, show structures not clearly displayed in tutorial room specimens. Prosections by some of Australia's eminent surgeons and physicians can be found in the museum, dating back to those of T.K. Potts, 1912 (335 D 211). Computer-based resources (eg. Netter Interactive Atlas of Anatomy, Brainstorm) and X-rays are also located in the Museum.
Location: Room W401, Anderson Stuart Building (Open: 8.30am - 6pm, Mon to Fri)

How to find Museum Specimens: "177 G 332"
|First 3 numbers (177)||indicate the 'bottle' or 'pot' number|
|Letter (G)||indicates the cabinet (marked at the top of each cabinet)|
|Next 3 numbers (332)||indicate the position of the pot in the cabinet.
First number indicates the vertical division (row) in the cabinet,
Second number indicates the shelf (from above down),
Third number indicates its position along the shelf, from left to right.
*When you have found the position of the pot, check the
number marked on the upper part of the pot to see you have the correct

Interactive Atlas of Anatomy (Netter's)Available in the Wilson Museum and the Medical Library (611.00222 32).
This CD-ROM contains diagrammatic images from Dr Frank Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy. Images can be searched by plate number (plate number in atlas and CD are identical), by region, or by system. Labels and points can be switched on or off. Self testing is possible. There are no accompanying text descriptions with these images.
The Clinical Anatomy Interactive Lesson (C.L.A.S.S.)Available in the Medical Library (611 153).
This CD-ROM has 3 modes of use. An alphabetical atlas mode, for quick reference to structures. Textbook mode allows you to explore the material like a textbook (chapters). Lesson mode presents the material in the form of Socratic questions eg. "How does the intestine change from a tube to an elongated coiled structure?" Images are predominantly photographic, some are diagrammatic, and there are some animations (eg. development of the gut, biliary system). Descriptive text is associated with each image.
BrainstormAvailable in the Wilson Museum.
This CD-ROM allows you to explore the anatomy and functional connections of the brain and spinal cord. It includes cross-sectional anatomy, cranial nerve examination, self-testing. Text descriptions are available for each image.
