Abstract:


    This sketch describes three dimensional (3D) computer graphics (CG) produced to illustrate the development of a human embryo for education in embryology, which is one of the basic subjects in professional medical education (Fig. 1). Although similar CG have already been produced for TV programs, they are insufficient in precision for professional medical education.
