SecondLook™ Mobile Applications
The SecondLookTM mobile applications are self-review tools, mainly for college and professional school-level students. They provide a series of images with questions and answers for users to test their knowledge and skill level before taking tests and examinations. SecondLookTM apps covering several basic biomedical subjects are currently available or are in preparation. All SecondLookTM applications are compatible with iPads and iPhones and with Android devices. See below for a list of SecondLookTM mobile applications that can be downloaded from the Apple iTunes Store and from the Google Play Store.
SecondLookTM Histology, an Award-Winning App
SecondLookTM mobile applications have been downloaded from the iTune and Google Play app stores more than 126,000 times from 205 different countries and territories. In 2013, the original Histology SecondLook™ app earned Dr. Hortsch the University of Michigan Provost's Teaching Innovation Prize.
Available SecondLook™ Mobile Applications:
The Histology SecondLookTM application is a study aid, for students learning or reviewing histology, also called microanatomy. It provides a comprehensive series of histology slides with questions and answers for users to self-test their level of knowledge, ability to recognize histological structures, and to understand their functional significance.
The Neuroanatomy SecondLook™ application is a review tool that uses neuroanatomical images for assessing the user's level of knowledge about the human central nervous system. The images in the Neuroanatomy SecondLook™ application were captured using the University of Michigan plastinated anatomy and histology collections.
The Musculoskeletal Anatomy SecondLook™ application is a review resource that helps users to assess their level of knowledge about the human musculoskeletal system. The images in the Musculoskeletal Anatomy SecondLook™ application were captured using the University of Michigan plastinated, osteology and embalmed anatomy specimen collections.
The Basic Radiology SecondLook™ application is a review tool that uses clinical images for assessing the user's level of knowledge about various aspects of human radiographic analysis. The images in the Basic Radiology SecondLook™ application were donated by University of Michigan faculty members and some images were used with permission from Oxford University Press.
The EKG SecondLook™ application is a study aid for medical learners who want to self-test their level of knowledge about this important procedure that is widely used in diagnostic cardiology.
Fetal Heart Rate Tracing
The Fetal Heart Rate Tracing SecondLook™ mobile application is a study aid for learners of the medical sciences to self-test their level of knowledge about this procedure used in pre-natal surveillance and diagnosis.
The Oral Radiology SecondLook™ application helps learners of the dental sciences to self-test their level of knowledge and ability to recognize technical errors, anatomical structures, dental disease, and maxillofacial pathology in intraoral and panoramic radiographs, as well as CBCT scans.
The Dental Anesthesia SecondLook™ application is a study aid for learners of the dental sciences to self-test their level of knowledge about anesthetic procedures used in standard dentistry.
