Bruce B. Fogel, Sakti Srivastava
In this hands-on workshop, students will explore the latest digital technologies that medical students are using to prepare for a future in the health sciences and surgeons are using to prepare for treatment. These include the Anatomage 3D anatomy table, 3D interactive anatomy apps, digital diagnostic visualization systems, and stereo images. Students will learn how to identify anatomical structures on human cadavers and some common clinical conditions affecting the thigh, leg, ankle, and foot (lower limb). Students will also observe surgical procedures being performed on cadavers to correct these conditions. The workshop will offer students a rare introduction to the advancements in 3D and stereoscopic visualization of human anatomy and will give them an insight into imaging technology and cadaver specimens that makes learning anatomy at Stanford a unique experience.

Completion of this workshop qualifies participants for the “Advanced Discovering Anatomy” workshop on Wednesday, May 22, 2019. For more information, visit the course page. This course is the third in a series on human anatomy titled “An Introduction to Anatomy at the Stanford School of Medicine.” Each course focuses on a different area of the human anatomy—the upper limb (Fall 2018), the abdomen (Winter 2019), the lower limb (Spring 2019), and the ear (Summer 2019). While these courses build upon one another, each course can be taken independently as well.
