The user is presented with images of the Head and Neck. The user can zoom in to any area of the head and neck - by taping on a region - taping again will zoom in further - eventually the user will have zoomed into a individual bone or bone region. The user can then identify the different bone parts by pressing on the flags. Each label is in English and in Latin and by pressing on the 'i' icon the user can access additional information on a label. There is also a super Magnification Mode that greatly magnifies a bone part allowing the user to press on flags that are close together!

The app can also be used as a visual reference tool by using the index: By simply selecting an English or Latin name from the index - the application will show the user where it is located - by zooming into the appropriate region and finding and labelling the item requested.

Throughout the app - even while zooming in - the user can get different views, including x-ray or skin views and of course the anatomical views: anterior, lateral, posterior, medial and even inferior and superior where appropriate.

This is a handy and fun testing tool - the app asks the user to zoom in and identify parts of the skeleton. If after three attempts the user is unable to identify the bone part or ligament he/she can ask the app to show them.
