"The Multi-Dimensional Human Embryo"
MetadataShow full item record
The Multi-Dimensional Human Embryo website (http://embryo.soad.umich.edu/) is a publicly accessible online database of the first three-dimensional images and animations of human embryos during different stages of development. Both the images and animations were created using magnetic resonance microscopy and compiled for easy access. The virtual collection of images is the result of a collaborative project between the University of Michigan, the Center for In Vivo Microscopy at the Duke University Medical Center, and the Human Developmental Anatomy Center at the National Museum of Health and Medicine. The project was funded by the National Institutes of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). The Multi-Dimensional Human Embryo is the first comprehensive collection of its kind, both in scope, organization, and the 3D nature of the images.
