About this course

By Dr. Shane Tubbs

Experience our first virtual dissection built in collaboration with the Gray’s Anatomy family of products. Follow an abdominal dissection from the superficial aspects of the anterior abdominal wall, the major organs and their blood supply, right through to the retroperitoneal space. Combining Complete Anatomy’s detailed virtual models and dissection videos from ‘Gray’s Surgical Atlas,’ this course will provide you with a clear and systematic guide of the abdominal region.
