Anatomy For Beginners is presented by pioneering anatomist, Dr. Gunther von Hagens and pathologist, Professor John A. Lee. Dr. von Hagens pioneered a procedure known as plastination, which preserves bodies and body parts for educational and display purposes. This works basically by substituting water and fat in the body tissue with special polymers that can preserve even the finest detail. This results in specimens that are immaculately preserved and presented, offering incredible opportunities for medical education. Many of these specimens are used in the program. Dr. von Hagens has also exhibited these specimens around the world in an exhibition titled Body Worlds, which displays genuine examples of human anatomy in a very public forum.
