The mouse is the most widely used laboratory mammal in biomedical research such as evaluation of the safety and effectiveness of new pharmaceutical products, research in tumor suppression, and vaccine and monoclinal antibody proportional studies. Rats are used to research a wide field including preclinical tests,
microbiological research, carcinogenic experiments, neurology, physiology, toxic tests, pharmacological effectiveness tests, etc. Anatomy is one of the important basic sciences and although much progress has been recently made in the field of human imaging diagnosis, information on sectional anatomy of experimental animals is lacking at present.
Features of these color atlases are as follows:
The specimens were not fixed but kept in a frozen state so that photographic information close to the living state could be obtained.
All photographs are in color for detailed observation.
Each atlas has numerous color pages, 2 pages of black and white macro-anatomical photographs are provided making the sectional atlas more comprehensible.
All pages consist of photographs so as to make the detail more comprehensive and three-dimensional than the usual pictorial atlas.
The anatomical terms used are in Japanese and English.
