The Academic Medical Center (AMC) uses Amira to build a 3D Atlas for Human Embryology

Academic Medical Center

The 3D Atlas of Human Embryology project was funded by the Academic Medical Center (AMC) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in 2009. Since then, over 75 students, under the supervision of embryologists of the Department of Anatomy, Embryology & Physiology, have contributed to this labor-intensive project, investing over 45,000 hours of work. The result of this effort is an embryology atlas with more than 15,000 manually annotated sections and a duplicate series of fully reconstructed human embryos covering the phase of organogenesis, between Carnegie stage 7 (15–17 days old embryo) and 23 (56–60 days).
