The Price Science Commons houses an Anatomage Table, which allows life-size rendering of human anatomy structures that can be rotated, manipulated, categorized, and "dissected" digitally by students of anatomy. It includes full digital representations of several human cadavers as well as case studies of many anatomical abnormalities to allow students to see, for example, MRI images of a healthy and a diseased or deformed organ or structure. Instructors can create modules and quizzes which students can perform using these digital cadavers, allowing the quiz to be identical for each user and allowing the instructor to highlight exactly the structure being studied. The table is located in Price Science Commons room B014.
Owning the physical device (currently available to one user at a time, with reservation and orientation, due to Covid restrictions) also affords us access to cloud software with which we have been able to create virtual lab materials and videos. Here is an example of a teaching video:
For more information about the table, or to talk about what kinds of images (still, video, slide, etc) can be created, check with Annie Zeidman-Karpinski, who is the Singer Science Librarian and the subject liaison for Human Physiology. You can also reserve time with the software (also only one person at a time!); if you'd like to find out more about it first or want some training documentation, drop us a line.
