Chosen as fourth most preferred computer-assisted learning resource for anatomy self-directed study by medical students in the article "Medical Student Preferences for Self-Directed Study Resources in Gross Anatomy"
Chosen as an interesting and helpful Web site for radiologists in the article "Internetressourcen fur Radiologen. Eine Positivauslese (Internet resources for radiologists - A positive selection)"
"In summary, the MERLOT Biology Editorial Board Editorial Board wishes to acknowledge the valuable contributions that (Atlas of Human Anatomy) has made to advancing the teaching and learning within the discipline. (Atlas of Human Anatomy) is a model of the scholarship of teaching that can benefit faculty teaching and student learning around the world."
"Between 1979 and 1981...Dr. Bergman was busy at that time and continued for years after compiling the definitive tome on anatomical human variants, which was first published in book form in 1988, and now is available gratis on the Internet (http://www.anatomyatlases.org/AnatomicVariants/AnatomyHP.shtml). The website, which is curated by Dr. Bergman, allows alphabetical searches of variant structures by type (e.g. cardiovascular vs. nervous), is richly illustrated and...allows far more access than any book could...I would like to publically thank Dr. Bergman for his work as do the letters that follow from prominent anatomists...Many of us use Dr. Bergman's website regularly. We use it when we teach, quickly checking a variant that an energetic medical student thinks he or she has discovered and wants to name after himself/herself. Most importantly, however, I use it in my role as Editor of the Compendium of Anatomical Variants for this journal. As stated in previous editorials (Carmichael 2006; Vilensky and Carmichael, 2010), Clinical Anatomy is not interested in re-publishing case reports on anatomical variants that have been described previously unless there is a new clinical perspective on such a variation. Nevertheless, every year the journal receives 20-30 manuscripts describing variants that a very quick search of Dr. Bergman's website would have revealed to the authors that their presumptive ''new'' variant was not new at all and that it would not be published in Clinical Anatomy. Such a quick check of the website is my first action upon receiving a manuscript."
"...useful site for anatomical variations and cross-sectional anatomy..."
...our aim is to constitute an online compendium for anatomical variations similar to the invaluable book written by Ronad A Bergman, Adel K Afifi and Ryosuke Miyauchi [Bergman RA, Afifi AK, Miyauchi R. Compendium of Human Anatomical Variations. Baltimore: Urban and Scdhwarzenberg. 1988]. - (Note this book is the basis of Anatomy Atlases' own Illustrated Encyclopedia of Human Anatomic Variations)
"...a set of useful educational anatomy atlases..."
"This is an extensive collection of anatomical images and makes an excellent reference tool. As well as conventional line drawings of each section of the body, there are cross sectional images, microanatomy slides, and a list of links to various digital image banks. The index is easy to follow and the "search" facility is also useful. A clinical section includes relevant anatomy for procedures such as chest drain insertion and amputation."
"The Anatomy Atlases database has an extensive encyclopedia, complete with images and videos, and a unique section on the anatomy of first aid."
"All the anatomy you will ever need is here."
"'Atlas of Human Anatomy' offers fantastic images of human body parts."
"This is an anatomy atlas with detailed labeled drawings."
"Finally, the human body exhibits an infinite variety of variations from "normal" structure, as well as, normal and variant development of structures with age. It is unrealistic to expect that samples of all variations at all stages of development can be sectioned, so information on aging and body variation must be cataloged and coded for use in simulations. The best electronic collection of this kind is currently provided by Bergman et al. at Anatomy Atlases."
"This work [Atlas of Human Anatomy in Cross Section] provides a high-quality colour photographic and radiological atlas of cross-sectional anatomy...This is a great resource for the anatomist, surgeon, and radiologist. Given its easy-to-use format and attractive photography it may also act as a good educational and diagnostic aid."
"The Atlas of Microscopic Anatomy is aimed at promoting an understanding of the structure and function of cells, tissues, and organs as viewed under light microscopy. Classroom-oriented, it provides concise structural/functional correlations clearly labeled for easy assimilation."
