ATLAS OF THE FUTURE IN THE HANDS OF RUSSIAN STUDENTS
A team of authors from three respected medical universities together with the publishing group GEOTAR-Media developed the first Russian interactive atlas of cytology and general histology, allowing the user to gain remote access to an extensive collection of microreparations and study them in virtual microscopy mode, fully reproducing the algorithm of light microscopy in practical classes.
The atlas contains over 280 high quality digitized images obtained using electron microscopy and modern equipment for scanning micro preparations, and also original schemes and tables summarizing modern ideas about the structural and functional organization of cells and tissues in mammals and humans. The didactic materials were prepared using the unique collections of the departments of histology at Yaroslavl State Medical University, I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University (Sechenov University), A.I. Evdokimov Moscow State Medical and Dental University. Micropreparations and electronic microphotographs, kindly provided by colleagues of several related departments and research laboratories staff, also supplemented the collection of the author's team.
The atlas has been prepared in accordance with the current FSES of Higher Education for the enlarged groups of specialties "Clinical Medicine", "Health Sciences and Preventive Medicine", "Fundamental Medicine" and is an indispensable addition to the existing textbooks and manuals on histology. An English-language version of the atlas is planned for students of Russian medical universities studying in English as an intermediate language.
In order to use the atlas, you must be registered and authorized on the GEOTAR-Media website. How to register is clearly shown in the Video Instruction.
What and How?
Two main sections of the atlas: cytology and general histology
Each of the sections contains a brief presentation of theoretical material and panoramic images of microsamples with the possibility of interactive navigation through in a wide range of magnifications. Digitized images of microscopic structures are accompanied with textual description and corresponding markup.
For example, this is how a slide with the image of multi-layered squamous non-keratinized epithelium looks like.
Separate sections provide a a general list of micropreparations, electronic microphotographs and drawings, as well as a list of reference oriented to a more in-depth study of the theoretical material.
