|Hello Jim,
|If you are looking to purchase ready-made files I would contact Visible
|Productions in Ft. Collins, CO. They do great work and have compiled
|their database of human anatomy from the visible human project
|and other
|studies. They can also give you the file in many different formats to
|suit your needs. I believe that they are also the ones providing some
|of the anatomical data you can purchase from Viewpoint Datalabs
|( Contact them at
|These guys are definitely experts and have spent much time making the
|models "prettier" than what you'd be able to pull out of the visible
|human yourself.
|Hope this helps.
|Best regards,

|Thanks for your suggestion. We've actually connected with
|Hugo. I think
|Visual Human Project and Hugo are one and the same. The sight and the
|data is cumbersome and somewhat inadequate. Not to say we
|lack a lot of
|experience in pulling out specific body parts. We're still novices and
|I'm searching for alternatives.
|Many thanks,
|Jim Williams

|Dear Jim and list,
|If you do a web search I guess you may find people who have 3D files of
|various body parts, usually bones and joints but other stuff too. The
|alternative is to get access to the Visual Human Project. It
|contains CT
|and MRI data of two whole people. There are conditions that apply and
|you have to register to get access but once you do you can
|create any bits you want.
