If you want to see the real thing, there is an exhibit at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, I don't know the official name but I call it "The Human Section." A real cadaver was sliced vertically into thin pieces and mounted in formaldehyde between panels of plexiglass. The last time I saw it, about 10 years ago, it was in an appalling state of conservation. But I suspect the museum really wants this grisly exhibit to go away, it was moved to a distant stairwell and is hard to find, even if you know where it is.
