BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) – SKYCTC is now home to the latest in clinical technology. Anatomage is a groundbreaking leap forward for medical education, emerging as the latest innovation set to revolutionize the learning experience for healthcare students.
Anatomage offers a hands-on, immersive experience that goes beyond traditional methods, allowing students to explore anatomy and physiology in an interactive 3D environment.
“This allows students to have the actual hands-on experience of actually seeing the anatomy in 3D,” said Lori Slaughter, professor of radiography.
The exclusive content of Anatomage allows users to explore full simulations of various medical conditions, including childbirth, and examine a detailed cadaver of a cancer patient.
With an extensive offering of 1500 CT and MR images along with a video library showing pathologies, Anatomage becomes a valuable tool for educators.
The table is intended to help doctors and students understand the complex structures and mechanisms of diseases and body processes. By providing real-world clinical experience, extensive anatomical databases, and realistic simulations with clinically-based tools, Anatomage sets a new standard for studying anatomy.
“The institutions are now really starting to get this in and incorporate it into their programs,” Slaughter said. “Whether it’s program-specific or in anatomy, we can look at pathology and histology slides that are also available, which makes it very beneficial for other program areas as well.”
To highlight the ethical aspect of Anatomage, each patient model available on the platform represents an actual person who generously donated their body for scanning. This ethical approach adds a layer of respect and authenticity to the learning experience, reinforcing Anatomage’s commitment to advancing medical education responsibly.
As Anatomage gains traction in educational institutions, it is expected to redefine the landscape of medical education, offering a transformative approach aligned with the dynamic and evolving healthcare field.
