On behalf of the Pinellas Park Medical District (PPMD), MS, Sridharan Manavalan, Chair of Basic Sciences, National University of Health Sciences-Florida presented, “Anatomage: State-of-the-Art Virtual Dissection,” to an audience of approximately 60 attendees at the August 14 PPMD monthly business luncheon. His presentation was followed by a tour of the anatomy lab in the Caruth Education Center of St. Petersburg College.

“It was really an exciting opportunity to speak to members of the local medical community, many of whom had never seen anything like this before,” said Professor Manavalan. “The presentation was primarily to introduce this new technology and show the participants how the Anatomage Table can be used both as a teaching and  diagnostic tool.”

The table is capable of creating 3D images in color from 2D CT or MRI Scan files aiding the medical community to arrive at accurate diagnosis or plan for complex surgeries,” he said.

The life-size, 3D interactive table is the most technologically advanced digital visualization system for anatomy education in the world today. For students, the Anatomage Table offers a hands-on, visual learning medium, building on a foundation of strong basic science and reinforcing instruction learned in the anatomy lab.

“Since there are fewer than 100 Anatomage tables in the U.S., and only 300 in the world, we are very fortunate to be able to offer this technology to the students of National University, its partner institutions in the PPMD, and the medical community at-large,” said Dr. Daniel Strauss, DC, dean of National University’s College of Professional Studies-Florida.
