||3 Dimensional Reconstruction
Based upon a serial reconstruction from individual embryo slice images (27 mm Human embryo, Carnegie Stage 22 approximate day 56).
The endoderm and mesoderm initially contribute many structures in the gastrointestinal tract, respiratory and renal systems. Note the relative size and position of individual structures and organs at this early stage of development. Below the animation is a more complete description of each system.
These 3d movies were part of the UNSW Medical degree Independent Learning Project (ILP) prepared by Aashish Kumar (2006).
