Anatomy of the chest and the lungs : anatomical illustrations
This e-Anatomy module presents an illustrated anatomy of the lungs, trachea, bronchi, pleural cavity and pulmonary vessels. This thoracic and pulmonary anatomy tool is especially designed for students of anatomy (medical and paramedical studies).
Anatomical illustrations of the lungs
All the anatomical illustrations are original and produced by Dr. Antoine Micheau. They were drawn in Illustrator using 3D modelling derived from medical imaging (principally thoracic scan). The anatomical drawings are organised in a fairly classical manner so as to be easily usable as a standard anatomical atlas. The user navigates between different groups of images using the "Illustrations" tab:
General Anatomy: diagrams showing the general organisation of the thorax with the pleural cavity and mediastinum
Anatomy of the lungs
Histology: histological diagrams of the trachea, oesophagus, a segmental bronchus, a bronchiole and the alveolar wall.
Segmental bronchus : Histology
The bronchial tree details the trachea in anterior and posterior views as well as the bronchial tree and its various subdivisions (segmental bronchus, intrasegmental bronchi, terminal bronchiole, respiratory bronchiole, lobule and acinus).
Trachea : Bronchi , Bronchial tree
Lobule: anatomical diagram showing the architecture of a pulmonary lobe (alveolar sac, alveolus, bronchiole, smooth muscle...)
Lobule : Medical illustrations
Lungs - illustrations: anatomical drawings of the gross anatomy of the lungs in various views (anterior, posterior, lateral and medial).
