This guide serves as a resource for using the Anatomage Table in the UTHSC Health Sciences Library.

Curriculum Integration

General Resources

Medical Imaging

  • Anatomage table improves student exam scores in GI courses. Anatomage. Faculty at the University of Nebraska Medical Center sought interactive teaching and learning with 3D anatomical structures in medical imaging courses, including gynecology, gastroenterology (GI), and ultrasound technology.
  • CT-based virtual dissection improves student performance in gross anatomy courses. Anatomage. Researchers from the University of Heidelberg, German Cancer Research Center, and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology investigated the impact of virtual dissection tables and cadaver CT scans on student learning of anatomy.
  • Custer, T., & Michael, K. (2015). The utilization of the Anatomage virtual dissection table in the education of imaging science studentsJournal of Tomography and Simulation, 1(1). Medical imaging students at the University of Nebraska Medical Center participated in focus groups and course evaluations to investigate the effectiveness of the Anatomage Table in anatomy courses.
  • Investigating the efficacy of the table in medical imaging courses. Anatomage. Faculty at the University of Nebraska Medical Center aimed to promote active learning with the introduction of the Anatomage Table in medical imaging courses. Their learning objectives centered on promoting collaborative problem solving and evidence-based decision-making. 
  • Paech, D., Giesel, F., Unterhinninghofen, R., Schlemmer, H., Kuner, T., & Doll, S. (2016). Cadaver specific CT scans visualized at the dissection table combined with virtual dissection tables improve learning performance in general gross anatomy. European Radiology, 25(9). PMID: 27568182. This study compared three groups of students at the Heidelberg Medical School, including groups who received training in radiological image interpretation, groups with access to cadaver CT scans, and a conventional anatomy group.
