Computational Model Description


VHP-Female Version 2.2 - locked 10/31/2015 - VHP-Female College

DOI: 10.20298/VHP-Female-V.2.2

Created using the open-source high-resolution cryosection image dataset from the Visible Human Project® (VHP) Female of the U.S. National Library of Medicine


26 tissues, 184 individual tissue parts


VHP-Female Version 2.2 is a truncated Version 3.0 BASE  without individual muscles


Anatomical accuracy


VHP-Female Version 2.2 has been evaluated by a board of medical experts from Beth Israel Deaconess Med. Center, HMS, Boston, MA, USA:
