Sheet Plastinates

Sheet Plastinates are 1-5 mm thick Plastinated body slices from real human bodies. All of the bodily liquids from the specimens have been replaced by Polymers. In comparison to well-known diagnostic pictures of Computer Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Tomography (MRT), Sheet Plastinates illustrate anatomical structures, in color, either transparent or translucent. The intricate world of macroscopy is revealed, as areas of interest can be studied down to the finest issues, at the microscopic level. The colored, dry and odorless slices show the positions of the structural elements in relationship to each other and offer a clear, didactically valuable distinction of the different kinds of the tissue.
