Communication took a long leap by the fast evolving electronic medium virtually reigning the roost. All other disciplines are left with no option but to integrate e-medium rather inseparably to gain the advantage of ease and versatility. Anatomy is no exception. It is pertinent here to remember G.E.Muller�fs quote �g Teaching methods which place the student in an active situation for learning are more likely to be effective than those which do not�h. The crux of it is active situation.

Any academic activity like teaching, research or learning now finds e-medium indispensable. It makes the process interactive. Newer findings and interpretations find place in print medium so enormously that now it has become humanly near impossible to access every bit of it within given time period without taking recourse to e-medium.

With a computer at hand typing has become almost the thing of the past. Any printed matter can be scanned and optically character read to convert it into readable text which can even be read aloud for the user to hear or just print it. Readable matter can be dictated using voice/speech software to the computer which converts it into typed text and print it too. Spellings and grammar including punctuation�fs are automatically checked and corrected. Any bit or whole text can be copied, cut and / or pasted as per need. All these processes are used to eat up big chunks of time in earlier times.

Internet, the network of computers world over made things easy to access information in a fraction of a second from any where in the world. All that is needed is the know how. How to search for the matter you are looking for? The search engines make it easy if you are wellversant with the do�fs and don�fts. Some popular search engines are 1.askjeeves wherein simple focused question can yield results desired ,2. altavista can help if time frame is known as to when it was published , 3. yahoo gives all the links and related sites , 4. google searches for all the key words , while 5.rediff has good advanced search wherein you can dictate terms of reference to pin point what you want. Apart from these there are devoted or specific search engines for medical purposes like medexplorer specifically designed to search medical sites , medical world search for medical sites worldwide. Anatline is the latest browser for anatomy. Infoseek provides good medical links and automatic listing of related topics. Some web sites of interest are biomednet, healthgate, medscape, meditimes, indmedica, medvarsity and pubmed. Pubmed has listing of medical journals available on the net with years, if you are looking for full text journals available on Internet.

E-books make it easy to browse the voluminous texts in seconds. The brightest example is Gray�fs Anatomy which is available on compact disc (s).It is much easier to get at what you are looking for using a CD than the conventional printed text and it is light in weight and compact enough to carry too. The search concept existing in the e-book turns the learning pleasurable too. Three dimensional visualization has become simpler using 3D graphics on the computer than traditional methods. Multimedia brought forward bright expressions and audible correct pronunciations soft on mind to follow.

The software available is almost an unending list. Some, of interest for anatomists, are on the cover title as theme of the Journal. Softkey, Healthsoft, Flagtower, Andromeda, Dataexpress, Mosby and A.D.A.M. are some of the concerns that e-published useful software. Animated Dissection of Anatomy for Medicine (abbreviated as ADAM) revolutionized dissection of human on the virtual front using computers wherein you can dissect box-cut or use laser to reach depth you wish. Layerwise dissection is also possible. The best part of it is you can even undo.

Visual Man provides cross-sectional anatomy 1 mm thick sections from top to bottom of man in anatomical position. Imaging atlas of human anatomy has all that an anatomist needs in the radiological front including M.R.I and C.A.T. scan. Interactive skeleton is really interactive in letting the viewer have the skeleton of man in best of graphics. Functional anatomy of heart made on macromedia provides development of heart and its functioning including audible heart sounds and details concerning CAD.

Nine month miracle though primarily made for lay man has some interesting aspects many anatomists would like to note, regarding developmental anatomy. It is superfluous to speak of the need to go through the utility called Medical Dictionary as most of us often refer to it . But this on the e-medium has much greater advantages than what you get in the print medium as it is full of graphics and interactive with search facilities to ease out the user.

It is no exaggeration to say that the impact is essentially impressionable.. References on any given topic is so voluminous that data needed may be in varied sources. Getting to know what they all are, find where they are, acquire the data, select out the needed bits, analyze and bring about a reasonable compact account of it. It is a stupendous job with out seeking the recourse to e-medium. Doing all this manually is sheer wastage of manpower and time of the researcher. So there is need to hook on to e-medium for the best of results towards understanding Anatomy.
