Bruce 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, the Oculus Rift, 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 into the advancements in 3D and stereoscopic visualization of human anatomy and will give students an insight into the combination of imaging technology and cadaver specimens that makes learning anatomy at Stanford a unique experience.

Due to its short format, this workshop may not be taken for Credit or a Letter Grade.

Completion of this course qualifies participants for the "Advanced Discovering Anatomy" workshop on May 24. This workshop is offered through Stanford Clinical Anatomy, and interested students can register here.
