Antoine Micheau, MD, Denis Hoa, MD

Published on Sunday 24 August 2008

SECTION: Anatomy of the thorax, abdomen, and pelvis

Images and anatomical references

This interactive atlas of human heart anatomy is based on medical illustrations and cadaver photography.
The user can decide whether or not to show the anatomical labels which provide a useful tool to create illustrations perfectly adapted for teaching.

Illustrated anatomy of the heart: illustrations and photography

 

 

Some illustrations have been drawn and coloured with Adobe Photoshop.

 

Heart - Human anatomy : Cross sections (Right/left ventricle, Right/left atrium, Interventricular septum

Heart : Cross sections

 

Others are based on an adapted 3D model (texturing and modelling) to the study of anatomy.

 

Heart - Photos : Diaphragmatic surface; Inferior surface, General Anatomy

Heart - Photos

 

 

The user will also find at least some cadaver photographs.
Anatomical structures were labelled according to the actual Terminologia Anatomica.

 

 

Anatomy of the human heart and coronaries: how to visualize anatomic structures

 

 

This tool provides access to several medical illustrations, allowing the user to interactively discover heart anatomy. Images are labelled, providing an invaluable medical and anatomical tool. The test mode allows instant evaluation of user progress.

The superior horizontal menu bar provides the groups of anatomic labels that the user needs to use (“Anatomical Structures”):
 

  • Morphology – pericardium
  • Myocardium – fibrous structures
  • Left cavities
  • Right cavities
  • Valves : aortic, mitral tricuspid and pulmonary valves
  • Left coronary artery
  • Right coronary artery
  • Veins
  • Conduction system
  • Mediastium vessels such as aorta, pulmonary arteries and veins, superior vena cava.

 

left atrioventricular valve ; Mitral valve, Aortic valve, Right atrioventricular valve; Tricuspid valve, Pulmonary valve

left atrioventricular valve ; Mitral valve, Aortic valve, Right atrioventricular valve; Tricuspid valve, Pulmonary valve

 

 

Conducting system of heart : Sinuatrial node, Atrioventricular node, Atrioventricular bundle

Conducting system of heart

 

To the bottom of this module, small images act as an interactive menu and allow the user fast access to the different anatomic views.
This module has been designed for anatomists, radiologists, cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, medical students and residents.

 

Left coronary artery : Anterior interventricular branch, Left circumflex artery (LCx),

Left coronary artery
