This guide is intended for students and faculty in the Michener Institute's Medical Laboratory Science program. It will show you the best resources for doing research in this field. Some online resources will require you to log in with your Michener account if you are not on campus. To learn more about off-campus access, watch the video below.
Are you new to research at the post-secondary level? Try using this assignment tracker from the University of Calgary to help you organize your work and complete assignments. The tool provides steps, a timeline, and helpful tips to guide you through the process of completing papers, reports, presentations, and group projects.
Please note that this resource should be used as guidance only; any information provided by Michener instructors should take precedence over the information shared in the above link.
Not sure if your thigh bone is really connected to your hip bone or where on earth you would find a quadratus lumborum? Well luckily for you, we at the LRC have access to Anatomy TV - a 3D interactive anatomy exploration program!
You can use the MRI function to access cross-sectional 3D anatomical images correlated with real CT/MRI scan data. You can scroll through axial, sagittal, and coronal CT/MRI slices of the lungs, bones, and soft tissue (trunk, thorax, abdomen, male pelvis, and female pelvis). You can follow a structure through the body by clicking on it and scrolling up or down the spinal column. Accompanying the highlighted area is a small descriptive paragraph that includes information on blood supply, innervation, and gross anatomy. This feature is incredibly useful for identifying how structures move throughout the body and what their relation is to other structures. [Thanks to LRC Student Assistant Rebecca for this write up!]
