When I launch anatomedia the following error message appears:

You are using anatomedia on an iPad, and you have it in Portrait orientation
Rotate your iPad to a Landscape orientation and the content will appear
You are using anatomedia on a desktop computer and your Web Browser window is too small to show all of the content.
You need to increase the size of your browser window. The best way to do this is to maximise the window to full screen. The content area
of the window needs to be at least 992×652 pixels.
Custom scaling of text can also cause an issue on Windows computers. Navigate to Settings, System, Display and check that “Change the size
of text, apps, and other items” is set to 100%.
You also need to check that the window content is not zoomed. The zoom level of the window should be set to 100%.

You do not have to have any to prior knowledge of anatomy to use an@tomedia.
The interactive text, image overlays, labels and clinical questions are optional and allow you to explore anatomy at any level of difficulty.
An@tomedia should be of great interest to anyone, however, it is primarily for anatomy students in tertiary institutions worldwide.
The program presents anatomy from multiple perspectives, so it is appropriate for any course, whether regional/discipline-based or systems/problem-based.
an@tomedia could replace an entire anatomy course or optimally be used in existing courses as an extra learning tool for practicals, tutorials and
An@tomedia can be used by medical practitioners to explain anatomical issues to patients, and its layer-by-layer dissections offer an excellent alternative
where dissection is not performed for cultural or other reasons.
As medical curricula around the world become increasingly busy, the time spent in dissection and tutorials is being reduced.
An@tomedia bridges the educational gap by providing students with a detailed anatomy resource to use before, during and after their practicals.
It allows them to make better use of their time, and to focus on areas of clinical significance and anatomy relevant to practical procedures.
One frequent criticism of traditional (discipline-based) courses is that they don’t facilitate students’ problem-solving skills, while in problem-based
courses the content is often lost. By presenting anatomy from multiple perspectives, An@tomedia caters to both types of course.
Each module covers the equivalent of 40 hours of course contact time (20 hours of core activities such as lectures or practical classes plus 20 hours of
advanced activities such as dissection) for a grand total of 360 hours across all 9 modules.
An@tomedia is available as a web application which runs on Macintosh and PC desktop computers, as well as iPads and Android tablets.
An@tomedia is also available for institutional subscriptions (eg. universities, professional colleges, hospitals and libraries). See the Pricing
page for more detail.
An@tomedia represents 100,000 hours of work by the team (over a period of more than 20 years). The first seven modules (General Anatomy, Back, Thorax,
Abdomen, Pelvis, Upper Limb and Lower Limb) are fully completed.
Dissection and imaging perspectives from the Neck and Head modules are also now available online (with their Systems & Regions perspectives to
be added soon).
Terminology for this CD is based on Terminologica Anatomica (1998) produced by the Federative Committee on Anatomical Terminology (FCAT).
