some medical related stuff:

Atlas of clinical medicine ( I do not feel good when I say this, but it can be inspiring) It shows pictures of different diseases and deformities.
www.fleshandbones.com/imagebank/bytitle.cfm?ISBN=0723431949
Human cadaver dissection-by regions( it may be disturbing ). It can be useful for some of you. Althogh I spent a couple of hundred hours doing this kind of stuff I don't think I would be able anymore to do it....:er: :\
www.med.umich.edu/lrc/coursepages/M1/anatomy/html/courseinfo/video_index.html
Old medical instruments & stuff
