Picture anatomical collection

The Institute of Anatomy curates more than 8‘000 human preparations and anatomical models. Around 450 anatomical specimens of the human body are presented in the collection, which is open to students and the public. In addition flexible models made of polyurethane as well as serial sections of various organs and body regions which are embedded in epoxyde resin can be studied by the visitors.

On each specimen the important anatomical structures are labelled by numbers which are explained by adjacent documents or photographic atlases.

The Anatomical collection is open for students and visitors. Groups are welcome after registration.
