Offers a life-size, virtual dissection experience on an interactive touch screen to study the human body
KS Biomed Services, Ahmedabad brought state-of-the-art technology of virtual dissection to India in collaboration with Anatomage, US, three years back. Since then many medical institutes in India have experienced the technology empowerment, which the skilled laboratory equipment has.
A state-of-the-art virtual dissection table can provide a great value to traditional anatomy learning. The Anatomage table uses 3-D images from digitally scanned human body to offer a life-size, virtual dissection experience on wide and interactive touch screen. It has the capacity to render limitless views of the human body in exquisite detail.
The technology allows learners to visualise skeletal tissues, muscles, organs and soft tissue and further customise the interaction by virtually slicing, layering and segmenting the anatomy. The selections can be rotated or flipped in any direction for detail view of anatomical structures.
The static images of text book or limited view capability of computerised images are widely used in India but with very limited desired outcome of in depth understanding of correlation between organs/ structures/ etc. Anatomage table has particular utility in helping students understand three-dimensional relationships in ways that static images, like those in textbooks, cannot.
The Anatomage table is being demonstrated across India and feedback from anatomy/ clinical/ surgical specialist is overwhelming. Also students’ feedback is hugely positive. Anatomage table is emerging as a valuable tool to supplement dissection. Students feel that the table should be made available for further study outside scheduled laboratory sessions in every medical institute in India.
The Anatomage table also has wide applications for teaching faculty, PG students and practising physicians as well. Clinicians and surgeons can practice ‘patient-specific’ medical visualisations and plan surgery or counsel patients.
The ability to import actual patient radiology images from CT/ MRI workstation is one of the best applications of table to enable doctors to interact with scan data.
Himanshu Bhatt, Director, KS Biomed Healthcare feels that now is the time when Indian medical institutes are ready to adopt this technology as part of Indian government’s great move of skilled learning through skilled laboratories in medical institutes.
