Virtual Dissection Table is the world’s first life-sized 3D interactive visualization table. This anatomage table was created by The Anatomage Inc-USA in partnership with Stanford Medicine’s Clinical Anatomy Department, California.
K S Biomed Services, an established multi-specialty organization from Ahmedabad-Gujarat, has taken the most awaited initiative to bring this amazing technology to India.
The virtual dissection table is a 7 ft. life-sized touchscreen anatomy visualization table. It allows users not only to view but also to interact with realistic 3D structures of the human body, offering detailed visualizations of every aspect of human anatomy. With this new method of doing dissections on virtual¬†cadavers, students can experience surgery and gain access to seeing more in-depth images of the human body virtually. For anatomy courses without cadavers, the table offers the most realistic virtual cadaver. This cutting-edge technology will help raise the standards of medical education to the next level with in-depth virtual human anatomy dissection studies.
The virtual dissection table has a complete new way of virtual exploration of the human body, which allows the surgeons to explore live rare medical cases through uploading CT or MRI images of patients with complete dissection facility live on virtual table for surgical planning for the first time in medical history. It is also possible to simulate pathologies on table.
Plenty of case studies have been conducted on the way that the virtual dissection table has impacted medical institutions. Most of the research shows the table has immense future potential, and has thus far been implemented at various medical institutions throughout the world.
Currently over 55 institutions worldwide uses the table. Being the first of such 3D virtual dissection device, this leaves a lot of room for adding more data and modifying the device based on user feedback. The future of studying anatomy seems to be moving toward more virtual anatomical exploration, but this device could also lead to having more usefulness than textbooks for various departments of medical institutions in India.
Of course, one possible constraint in India is the cost of the table but when medical institutes take the following aspects in consideration, it is very much worth to have it as part of virtual skill laboratory for which even medical council of India is recommending all medical institutes:
Excellent way of repeated anatomy education
CT-MRI image uploading of real live cases for surgical planning
Surgical planning of critical cases
Life saving surgical procedure planning
Patient counseling for critical surgery consent
New future upgrade in the same table once installed
Himanshu Bhatt of K S Biomed Services is very optimistic about this revolutionary table. The buzz and popularity of this product is growing at a fast pace with each CME being participated by K S Biomed in different medical institutes all over India.
