 Anatomage Table Allows Students to Dissect Virtual Cadaver

Medical students at University of Edinburgh can now take advantage of the Anatomage Table that will allow them to examine human bodies and virtually dissect it.

The screen displays a life size image of male and female bodies, created from CT scans, which can be seen from front, bank and sideways, providing a great detail about the body and the relationship of structures beneath the skin.

The students can not only remove organs from the body, but they can also add organs, veins, arteries, nerves or tissue, which will allow them to study the relationship between different body parts.

"The beauty of the Anatomage Table is that you can rotate and view the body in all three planes in a unique 3D experience. Although it will never, I believe, replace the experience of dissecting and handling a real cadaver, it will allow students to handle a virtual cadaver without all the legislation that accompanies the use of a real one. So far we have received a lot of good feedback from the students and surgeons who have tested it out", Gordon Findlater, who is the Professor of Translational Anatomy, said.
