Heidelberg University students study virtual anatomy
16 October 2007
The University in Heidelberg will start a virtual
anatomy course for medical students in close collaboration with the
Radiology Department of the German Cancer Research Centre. 90 students will
be using 3viseon 3D imaging software in order to perform a virtual
dissection of different organs in 3D. This is done at 45 workstations to
medical teaching methods on the anatomy of the human body.
“The 3viseon 3D
imaging software provides realistic 3D pictures and enables us to teach
anatomy courses interactively using any CT or MRI-acquired images," said
course leaders Dr Frederik L Giesel of the German Cancer Research Centre,
Department of Radiology and Sara Doll of the University of Heidelberg,
Department of Anatomy.
Based on this initiative, a new group in Heidelberg
called the Virtual Anatomy Group, has been established by these course
leaders and Fabian Rengier, medical student at the University of Heidelberg,
in order to offer the students a better understanding of the human anatomy
with the help of 3viseon 3D imaging software.
