1. How do I use InnerBody?
If you are brand new to InnerBody, we invite you to check out the instructional video that we created in hopes that it would provide a good introductory overview of the features on the site.
There are many interactive ways to learn about anatomy on InnerBody, whether you arrive hoping to learn about a particular body part or instead aim to explore an anatomical system without any one particular object of interest. You can explore anatomy by system (like the cardiovascular system for example), by general region of the body (like the head, or the legs), or by jumping to a specific body part and branching out from there. By hovering your cursor over the image, you can learn about the various objects featured in them. Helpful anatomy term lists are also located on every anatomy page for you to scroll through and see what objects are featured in that particular system and area of the body. Hover over each one to see a description of them.
If you have trouble finding what you’re looking for either in the image or in those lists of objects, we also provide a site search bar where you can type the desired organ or body part, and see all options on our site.
If you have a question that the video does not cover, please send us the question via our Feedback Form.
2. I am unable to navigate easily around InnerBody. Nothing happens when I click or mouse-over the images. What am I doing wrong?
95% of the technical issues our visitors encounter are caused by using an outdated browser. Please update your browser and try again. Here are the update links: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari.
3. I updated my browser and still have a technical issue. What now?
Please send us details about your technical issue via our Contact Form, and we will look into it ASAP.
4. I would like to request that you add a very cool new feature to InnerBody. How do I do that?
Please fill out our quick Feedback Form and share with us your idea!
5. I would like to request permission to use images or written content that I have found on InnerBody. How can I do that?
Sorry, but we do not permit the use of our content. However, if it is for strictly educational, not-for-profit purposes, we do in some cases allow our content's use. To make a request, please contact us via our Contact Form. Please understand that we get hundreds of requests to use our content each month. If we fail to reply to you in a timely fashion, please do not assume that the request was granted. Thanks in advance for your understanding!
6. I think I found a mistake on InnerBody. How do I report it to you?
While we try our best to make sure that everything on InnerBody is labeling properly and factually correct, we are human and are not perfect. Please describe what you suspect is in error on our short Contact Form. If possible, please include the webpage’s address in your email - that information helps us greatly.
7. I want to access InnerBody from my favorite mobile device. Do you have an iPhone/iPad or Android app currently available?
Currently, InnerBody Explorer works best on an iPad or Android Tablet. You can access it on an iPhone via your browser, but we admit the overall experience is less than optimal (we are finding it very difficult to fit all the information on the smart phone’s tiny screen). We are currently looking into ways to make your mobile experience even better.
8. Why do some images have both Female and Male view options, while others do not?
In an effort to keep our visitors’ experience decluttered, we have done our best to provide gender-specific anatomy images wherever there are important anatomical differences between men and women, but not where differences would be more trivial or non-existent. If you are concerned that we have overlooked an area of meaningful anatomical difference between the genders, please let us know via our Feedback Form.
9. The ‘Change Anatomical System’ and ‘Change View Angle’ toggle buttons at the top of the images are not working for me - why is that?
The first question we generally ask is: “Are you using the current version of your browser, or has it been a while since you updated?” If you are using an older browser version, it’s likely the reason why those buttons and other features aren’t working properly. Please update your browser version - here are the update links: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari.
If you are using the current version of your browser and those buttons aren’t working: what color are they? Normally, those two buttons are blue. When they are grey, it means from this particular page there is no option to change anatomical system or view angle, whichever the case may be.
Lastly, those buttons are not meant to be clicked - if you hover over them where they are blue, you will see options unfold beneath each of them. Clicking those unfolded options is the way to change view angle or change anatomical system.
10. How do I cite an anatomy page?
