Bassett Anatomy Search draws from a 3-D photographic images database of anatomical images of the human body.

The database is named after Dr. David Bassett, a professor of anatomy at Stanford Medical School, pioneered many innovations in dissection. Beginning in 1948, working in collaboration with an early 3-D photographer, they compiled a 24-volume Stereoscopic Atlas of Human Anatomy.

In 2008 Lane library catalogued the 1,547 three-dimensional photographic images of human anatomy and in early 2009 introduced two dimensional versions of all those images on our website.
