dc.description.abstractObject: This paper presents a 3D framework for Anatomy teaching. We are mainly concerned with the proper understanding of human anatomical 3D structures. Materials and methods: The main idea of our approach is taking an electronic book such as Henry Gray’s Anatomy of the human body, and a set of 3D models properly labeled, and constructing the correct linking that allows users to perform mutual searches between both media. Results: We implemented a system where learners can interactively explore textual descriptions and 3D visualizations. Conclusion: Our approach allows easily performing two search tasks: first, the user may select a text region and get a view showing the objects that contain the selected structures, and second, using the interactive exploration of a 3D model the user may automatically search for the textual description of the structures visible in the current view.
