Created by Healthline and GE Healthymagination in partnership with Visible Productions, the app features Retina display-ready anatomy models of both sexes, including anatomical structures for common specialties such as orthopedics, cardiology, and neurology.

According to West Shell III, chairman and CEO of Healthline Networks:

BodyMaps for iPad brings human anatomy to life for everyone. The exceptionally high quality imagery combined with our industry-leading health search technology, simple navigation and compelling content makes it a powerful learning tool, one that grows with users as they increase their knowledge levels over time.

Key Features include:

  • Social media ready so users can easily share images via email or Facebook
  • Search using either clinical terms or everyday language.  For example, typing in “eardrum” will take you to an image of the tympanic membrane
  • Mark-up tool to draw directly on an image to illustrate specific conditions, procedures, or therapies
