Recently, the new Anatomage table has arrived at the Humanitas University.
This interactive and innovative anatomy visualization system, realistically sized at the dimension of a human adult being, enables e true and realistic educational environment.
A 3-dimensional reconstruction of the body provides a unique teaching experience in basic science such as Anatomy, Physiology, Histology, but also in applied clinical disciplines such as Cardiology, Radiology, Surgery etc. For example, the respective departments can visualize and manipulate patient scans and identify potential complications to develop a plan to ensure best outcomes prior to surgery.
Furthermore, the table may now be used to advance the scientific side of education by reconstructing and effectively visualizing pathologies, or exploring new diagnostic and therapeutic pathways, all while objectively analyzing the individual learning curve.
It allows individuals of various disciplines to create a truly collaborative environment: students, residents and professionals may use this new table to cross-disciplinary work on patient cases to further improve patient care and safety. As such, it advances translational science, bridging basic scientific understanding with a real clinical application.
In our interview below, Prof. Flavio Ronzoni, Professor in Human Anatomy and Head of the School of Anatomy for the new Humanitas University Medtec program, highlights the benefits of the device and how the table can transform education, which are:
- Unprecedented technology for medical Anatomy education
- Accurate gross anatomy, segmentation models, and the ability to input countless new scan data makes for an exceptional research tool and resource
- Collaborative visualization system to improve clinical care
