The Internet provides an excellent facility both for disseminating medical information rapidly and for accumulating a coherent and widely-available body of medical reference material, and the medical community has recently begun to tap its potential in a number of ways. The paper describes a service which is available on the WWW and which is designed to provide a 3D visualization system to advance the education of medical students and the professional development of qualified medical practitioners. Particular reference is made to the type of graphical support demanded by such a system, and the feasibility of providing such a resource, taking into account the equipment currently available to the likely users. A discussion of related issues such as user requirements and medical standards is included, and possible future developments are identified.
