dc.description.abstractDigitised Diseases is a new web resource which contains photo-realistic 3D models of bones, together with detailed descriptions, clinical synopses, radiographs and CT data. The images give broad coverage of disease conditions affecting the human skeleton. The project – a collaboration between the University of Bradford, Museum of London Archaeology and the Royal College of Surgeons of England – came about following recognition of conflict between the requirements of researchers and students and the need to preserve collections of material; repeated handling of the bones can cause appreciable damage. This article explains the importance of archaeological and historical specimens for modern medical research and training, and thus the usefulness of the project, which makes a huge amount of data freely available; it also describes some of the collections that have been digitised.en_US
