AnatomyTV - 3D Dentistry & Podiatric Medicine

Update- 3D Dentistry should be working again.  Supported browser are Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari.  Podiatric Medicine will open once with no problems.  If you close the window and want to go back in, you will need to clear your browser history and cookies.  You can also access both 3D Dentistry and Podiatric Medicine via the main AnatomyTV link.  3D Dentistry is in the Clinical Specialties section and Podiatric Medicine is in Other Products. -10/5/18

The AnatomyTV - 3D Dentistry & Podiatric Medicine databases are not working.  The Podiatric Medicine database will open the first time you click on it.  If you close the window you will have to clear your history to open the program again.  The 3D Dentistry database gets stuck on the Unity web player download page.  We have contacted the vendor and will update this blog when the problem is resolved.
