The treatment of the constantly increasing amount of new information and its practical application set an almost unsolvable task for the conscientious specialists of some fields in medical practice. Above this, the once acquired knowledge also needs up-to-date active knowledge. This is especially valid for the elements of anatomy both in the case of physicians working in the manual fields and of medical students. The authors of eMedlas.com, with these compilations try to give powerful help to the people mentioned with the possibility of renewing the existing knowledge in a short time.
Our anatomy section was created by Prof. Phd, János Vajda and Phd. Károly Csányi, edited by Phd. Lajos Patonay. The authors treated the anatomy of the human body in 25 topics. This compilation of great significance contains color slides of original preparates, their rough sketches, nomenclature, written explanation and its audio material. The pictures can be enlarged while the drawings are printable together with the written texts to insure immediate knowledge-tests.
The online human anatomy section contains 554 excellent quality slides of original preparates, the same amount of sketches, 5.344 nomenclatural terms and 9 hours of audio explanation with the related written texts. The view of the topics requires 20-25 minutes. During this time, with revision, the users can reactivate the earlier acquired knowledge. At the compilation the authors were led by functional attitude and they emphasized mostly the spatial positions which are difficult to imagine and the syntopy of the organs.
The authors are convinced that with this series they can contribute to deepening the elements of anatomy and the physicians working in manual fields, physician teams and medical students can use it gladly and successfully in rejuvenating their knowledge and in its practical application. The series or its parts - as thorough educational material - can come into account for those who do not work directly with medical science.
The histology section was created by Phd. Mihály Kálmán and Phd. Lajos Patonay. It contains over 400 color photographs showing almost all histological structures found in the human body. In case when it was absolutely necessary (in order to understand the spatial structure) we included drawings to aid users with orientation. The photos are grouped into 24 thematic albums, followed up by an overview of differentiation between various tissues and organs. In general, the topics follow the usual division of chapters in textbooks and atlases, with two exceptions: all salivary glands, including the pancreas and the lacrymal gland, are discussed in one chapter, while the chapter on the nervous system is, on account of the huge number of photographs, divided into several parts. In these two cases the "general" and the "detailed" histological descriptions have not been separated.
The user of our online histology section is supposed to be in command of the theoretical background, therefore written texts are limited to memory-refreshing remarks related to the images only. We tried to mark every recognizable structure on the photographs. Therefore beginner may find unfamiliar structures (even on the very first photos) that they will only learn about later on. However, it is important to get used to the fact that there can be more structures on a photograph than it is supposed to show. We did not find it necessary to take photos of different magnification (or images depicting different parts of the same organ) from the same section. Using several different sections proves to be helpful in learning to differentiate the consistent and significant characteristics of histological structures from the special features of individual sections. Certain structures are shown on several similar photographs.
The amount of text is limited, and serves as more of a reminder, rather than a basis for study. In the case of similar pictures the text is only shown with the first image. With the others, it is only referred to.
The photographs used in our online human histology section were taken by us, but we are much obliged to many of our colleagues in our Institute and in the Human Morphology and Development Biology, for helping us in our work.
We hope that the above two sections of eMedlas.com will be a great help during study or practicing.
The eMedlas.com Team
The eMedlas.com provides two great online medical compilations.
Our human anatomy and online histology sections are based on two outstanding atlases of the human body.
We are very proud that both our anatomy and histology modules are part of the recommended literatures at multiple universities in Europe.
