Use the Anatomy Tree to explore anatomy at different levels of detail

Feature availability


The Anatomy Tree has multiple uses across the BioDigital Human platform, but its primary purpose is to enable exploration of the individual anatomical structures that compromise your 3D model.

Follow the steps below to drill down to deeper levels of detail using the Anatomy Tree's built-in browsing functionality.

  1. Open the Anatomy Tree.

    Note: The location of the Anatomy Tree varies depending on which part of the platform you are using. For instructions on how to access the Anatomy Tree from the View page, Human Studio, and the Human Viewer, see Where can I find the Anatomy Tree?.

  2. Click the drop-down arrow next to the anatomical system name, such as Muscular system. This will open the next anatomical grouping in the list.

    Tip: After the anatomical system, the next grouping is usually a set of regions (such as the muscles of the head and neck, back, upper limb, etc.) or functional areas (such as the heart, arterial system, and venous system).

  3. Continue using the drop-down arrows next to each anatomical grouping to expand lower and lower levels of detail.
  4. Click the name of the anatomical grouping to select it. The grouping – and everything it contains – will turn yellow in the 3D model to the right.
  5. To collapse an anatomical grouping, click the drop-down arrow again.
