An updated anatomy table uses a digital cadaver to provide a complete and striking journey into the human body, with detailed regional content.

The Anatomage (San Jose, CA, USA) virtual dissection table allows medical and other students to replicate a true operating table experience, using realistic interactive visualization of human three-dimensional (3D) anatomies. The virtual cadaver is recumbent as students stand beside the table and interact with it, rotating it, dissecting the body, peeling off soft tissues, or removing an organ entirely using finger gestures. But unlike cadavers, the students can redo and undo the dissection over and over again.

The new Table 6 software update contains all-new anatomy content, dynamic visualization tools, and interactive testing features, with a new female cadaver joining the previous three real cadavers on the Table. Newly added regional anatomy structures include the head and neck as well as the male and female abdomen. High-resolution regional anatomy and an expansive photorealistic sectional library provide a full cadaver lab experience, with over 2,000 3D structures annotated and segmented for easy visualization and reference.

Custom annotations and flexible annotation tools allow institutions to create innovative programs, quizzes, and new methods of study. Unique visualization tools provide an active educational experience, including a new histology feature that allows students to engage with pathology at a microscopic level by tapping on any structure and instantly seeing its related histology. Simulated endoscopies and other procedures are accessible using the newly added Flythrough tool.

“We are very excited about our Table 6 update. The level of detail and accuracy has been significantly improved. Medical schools will be very happy with the new details,” said Jack Choi, CEO of Anatomage. “New flythrough and virtual arthroscopy features can deliver real clinical anatomy experiences. We think this update makes the Anatomage Table so much more useful, all of our customers should take advantage of our free upgrade offer.”

The Anatomage table is based on a liquid crystal display (LCD) high-contrast screen with a 3960 x 1080 resolution. Optical touch interactive sensors are used for image manipulation, which can be used with a finger or a stylus. Around a dozen people can easily stand around and comfortably interact with each other and the Table at the same time. If needed, it can be moved to a different room on rollers that can be locked into a position.
