The Visible Human Project (VHP) is 25 years old and still going strong. The VHP digital images, representing the complete anatomy of a man and a woman, revolutionized our ability to view and understand human anatomy.

So what’s new? NLM has eliminated the requirement for a license in order to access the images.

Images from the VHP are now open access and available from the NLM Data Distribution webpage https://www.nlm.nih.gov/databases/download/data_distrib_main.html.

The datasets for either the male or female contain MRI, CT, and anatomical images.

Complete information about the project and the images is available on the NLM website at https://www.nlm.nih.gov/research/visible/visible_human.html.
