Students in the Allied Health Science (AHS) and Biomedical Science (BMS) programs at the Laurel County Center for Innovation (CFI) are learning to identify anatomical features and physiological functions of the human body utilizing the Anatomage Table. Mr. Ed Bowling, instructor of Health Science, spoke about the utility of the Anatomage Table with regard to students being able to examine male and female specimens virtually. “It is an impressive system to use and has become an excellent tool for teaching anatomy and physiology,” said Mrs. Misty Allen, instructor of Biomedical Science. Both faculty added that wet lab dissections are still part of the training that students receive in their programs at the CFI.
“Students are able to complete virtual autopsies and medical investigations with minimal lab prep time with the Anatomage Table. Students can view gross anatomical features, specific body systems, disease states from the media images library, as well as veterinary applications learning about dogs, cats, and other small animals,” remarked Allen. “Our students are learning how to interact with advanced technology and computer applications as they prepare to become healthcare practitioners. The Anatomage Table has become the latest technology utilized in medical schools around the United States and the CFI is the only secondary-level school in the world providing this technology for student learning activities,” remarked Davis.
The Anatomage Table is the most technologically advanced anatomy visualization system on the market. It is both a virtual library of human and animal cadavers, as well as a clinical diagnostic tool by visualization of any Medical CT, CBCT or MRI scan. The operating table form factor combined with Anatomage’s renowned radiology software and clinical content separates the Anatomage Table from any other imaging system on the market.
