Over the last 14 years, National Geographic has been working with Dr. Vic Spitzer, a professor at the Colorado Anschutz University and Susan Potter, on his way to life as "Cadaver."
"Susan, like many donors, came to the donation of her body," said Spitzer. "He saw an article on human vision and divided his body, understanding how many pieces of body he was doing."
Spitzer is a Human Simulation Director at Anschutz Medical Campus at Colorado University. The process is to see a body through a cork body, through a thick human hair.
"Seeing the slicing through the body is a way of looking at CT and MRI, but now you can reposition these slices again and differentiate them from other ways," said Spitzer.
Spitzer says Potter died at the age of 87 years ago and had major issues such as breast cancer and diabetes. They said they were all, but they forced an older body to study.
"In general, young specimens teach anatomy," said Spitzer. "There were 26 surgeries and other diseases."

Spitzer told the body of Potter about 27,000 pieces of crisscross that were stitched through the millimeters thick, each slice to walk.
"We allow you to remove a muscle at the same time or to isolate an artery or a nerve, explaining to the non-nerve name, but where it travels … what happens," said Spitzer.
He explained that this relationship is deep in our body, that each doctor receives information on what happens to the patient.
"It's not just for the help of CU medical students, but in the future with the help of many others," said Spitzer. "This means that everyone in the world can see the ants and the outer body and lifestyle and accept it."
