Nose and Sinuses is an interactive graphics program developed by Michael Benninger, M.D. showing the normal anatomy of the nose and sinuses. Clearly animated anatomical drawings show front and side views of the nose including the nasal cavities, sinuses and the olfactory bulb. An extensive video section shows normal, operation and post operation views.
The rollover feature (placing the cursor on any structure) allows the user to identify the names of structures and obtain descriptive information. Animations of normal and infected sinus can clearly be seen for ease of learning.
Side views include animations of common nose bleeds, smelling and sinuses-each complete with rollovers for ease of learning.
Nose and Sinuses provides over 20 videos of the normal nose and a variety of pathologies. The user can run the video at regular, slow and fast speeds as well as control each frame via a slider bar.
A full color, plastic laminated card that details the Nose. Included with the Nose and Sinuses software or available separately.
