The Eolas AnatLab System

The Eolas AnatLab System is a web-based virtual laboratory of human anatomical information which presents the user with a direct-manipulation interface to browse through a high-resolution reconstruction of an adult male cadaver. Users can slice the data from different directions, and interactively query a knowledge base by merely clicking on any structure in the section image. The AnatLab System responds by displaying the name of the anatomical structure and highlighting the extent of the structure on the section image being viewed. If the user clicks on the "more..." link, the system opens up a separate window and displays the corresponding Wikipedia page, to provide text-book style information and illustrations concerning the anatomical object of interest. The AnatLab product has been successfully beta-tested at the medical-school level.

A license for the AnatLab system has been donated by Eolas to the National Museum of Health + Medicine Chicago. The museum used the Eolas vScope cloud-based mobile virtual microscope subsystem of AnatLab to create the first neuroanatomical atlas of Albert Einstein's brain, as an Apple iPad app, which was released with worldwide press coverage in September of 2012.

A demonstration video of the AnatLab system is available for viewing click here to download (76MB).
