The Ziauddin University in Karachi has introduced a 3D virtual dissection table at its new digital anatomy lab in Clifton. It is reportedly the first of its kind in the country.
The new dissection table, called Anatomage, will be used as a learning tool for university students of all years. It can be connected to different physical locations across all three campuses.
“It will be helpful for all medical and dental students, labs, radiologists, nurses, surgeons, doctors and house officers,” said Dr Bushra Wasim Khan, a professor and head of the Anatomy Department at Ziauddin University.
Anatomage uses the latest 3D technology to allow users to visualise every structure of the body in great anatomic detail.
With the touch of a finger a tissue layer can be peeled to reveal underlying structures.
