As the need for healthcare professionals climbs year after year, the enrollment rates in the accompanying higher educational programs follow suit. While this appears to be a step in the right direction, significantly increasing enrollment rates leave many institutions struggling to provide students with the necessary resources in order to succeed in their subsequent years. One particular area in the health-related academic field that struggles to provide the required resources is within the study of human anatomy. As enrollment in these fields increases, access to the human anatomy/cadaver labs becomes more competitive, leaving many institutions looking for alternative methods. A large number of programs have adopted virtual anatomy resources to provide the increasing number of student’s access to anatomical resources.
Many have augmented their curriculums with virtual platforms that utilize modeled anatomical volumes. While these platforms expand access to anatomy resources, they leave a gap in the comprehension and learning components required to fulfill the needs of tomorrows healthcare professionals. BodyViz 3D anatomy software bridges that gap between the necessary components in anatomical education and the knowledge required to succeed in their academic and post-academic careers. BodyViz’s virtual 3D anatomy software solutions provide unlimited access to real human anatomy that students utilize to expand their knowledge of normal (average), developmental stage, variation, and pathology examples in anatomy. Exemplified below, BodyViz anatomy software visualizes developmental stages from fetuses to 90+ year old patients in 3 dimensions. These aspects are a critical component within health-related curriculums and many are often over looked by modeled anatomy platforms.
We have a saying here at BodyViz, “Anatomy is real, not modeled.” We firmly believe that in order to fully comprehend anatomical concepts and reach the curriculum goals, students needs to be taught using real anatomy. Our 3D visualizations are rendered from real patient data that enable students to perform repeatable virtual dissections and exploration of real human anatomy. Our solutions scale to any teaching environment and flex to any pedagogical approach, providing real human anatomy to students in any stage of their academic careers. BodyViz can be implemented directly into an institutions existing curriculum and resources, and can do so in a very cost-effective manner.
