We have designed a tutorial that allows the students to build the perineal structure from the pelvic diaphragm out or from the outermost fascial layer in [Figure 8]. The layers can be moved sequentially to allow views of deeper or more superficial layers respectively [Figure 9].
Images of this region obtained from the Visible Human
[Figure10] show spectacular detail and the important
anatomical structures are well illustrated. The male perineal data
gives the student an opportunity to view structures that otherwise go undissected
and poorly understood. It should be possible to separate these structures
from the Visible Human and incorporate them into the same sort of tutorial
as we have generated from illustrations [Figure 9,
Figure 10]. Once this area is built as separate
components other structures can be added and correlations made with internal
pelvic structures of the urogenital system.
