Oak Point Purchases Anatomage Virtual Dissection Tables
In March 2019, Oak Point installed two new Anatomage Virtual Dissection Tables. The tables were purchased with a generous donation from the Foglia Family Foundation and will help to enhance the visual learning of nursing and radiography students.
“The Anatomage Table is the only fully segmented real human 3D anatomy system. Users can visualize anatomy exactly as they would on a fresh cadaver. Individual structures are reconstructed in accurate 3D, resulting in an unprecedented level of real accurate anatomy, dissectible in 3D. The Table allows for exploration and learning of human anatomy beyond what any cadaver could offer.” (anatomage.com)
The University developed an Anatomage task force composed of faculty and staff, who began piloting the use of the tables this month. Further implementation of the tables into course curriculum will begin in the Summer Semester of 2019, beginning with undergraduate and graduate nursing programs, and undergraduate radiography programs.
