Skin and oral cavity (LUMEN)

Good quality slide images of normal skin types can be examined interactively by zooming in and using arrow keys in a google-map type fashion. 킠Click on ‘show description’ for text and questions. 킠Requires large band-width.

Here is a related page (still LUMEN) which needs less bandwidth but is less interactive. 킠Select part 13: Skin (integument), although you can see from the menu on this page that there are earlier parts covering basics such as ‘epithelium and simple glands’, which you may wish to look at too.

Commentary on the skin slides runs down the left of the page, with a non-adjustable slide more centrally. 킠The two practicals test basic histopathology knowledge, with the answer revealed when you click on ‘answer’.
