To learn human anatomy, medical students must practice on cadavers, as must physicians when they want to brush up on their anatomy knowledge. However, cadavers are in short supply in medical schools worldwide. One potential solution to this problem is the virtual human anatomy and surgery system. VHASS uses cryosection images - cross-section natural-color images generated by slicing a frozen cadaver-to reconstruct the human body. By creating 3D models that include details of human organs, we can give medical students and physicians unlimited access to realistic virtual cadavers.
