Nadav Aridan; Michal Bernstein-Eliav; Dana Gamzo; Maya Schmeidler; Niv Tik; Ido Tavor – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Anatomy studies are an essential part of medical training. The study of neuroanatomy in particular presents students with a unique challenge of three-dimensional spatial understanding. Virtual Reality (VR) has been suggested to address this challenge, yet the majority of previous reports have implemented computer-generated or imaging-based models…

Ching-Tien Lee; Jiz-Yuh Wang – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Among the basic medical sciences, anatomy and physiology (anatomy & physiology) is a fundamental subject for students majoring in nursing. Due to its diversity and difficulty, nursing students experience stress when studying it. Previous graduates generally presented lower achievements in anatomy & physiology than in other nursing-related…

Rocky Chun Chung Cheung; Jian Yang; Christian Fang; Man Fai Leung; Susan M. Bridges; George L. Tipoe – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Difficulty in visualizing anatomical structures has been identified as a challenge in anatomy learning and the emergence of three-dimensional printed models (3DPMs) offers a potential solution. This study evaluated the effectiveness of 3DPMs for learning the arterial supply of the head and neck region. One hundred eighty-four undergraduate medical…

The reconstruction of two-dimensional (2D) slices to three-dimensional (3D) digital anatomical models requires technical skills and software that are becoming increasingly important to the modern anatomist, but these skills are rarely taught in undergraduate science classrooms. Furthermore, learning opportunities that allow students to…

The 3D stereoscopic technique consists in providing the illusional perception of depth of a given object using two different images mimicking how the right and left eyes capture the object. Both images are slightly different and when overlapped gives a three-dimensional (3D) experience. Considering the limitations for establishing surgical…

M. Melissa Gross; Jennifer E. Gear; Wendy M. Sepponen – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Surface anatomy is an important skill for students in preparation for patient care, and peer examination is often used to teach musculoskeletal and surface anatomy. An alternative pedagogical approach is to use bodies represented in artworks. Represented bodies display fictive anatomy, providing students with the opportunity to apply their…

Nicolas Van Vlasselaer; Benyameen Keelson; Aldo Scafoglieri; Erik Cattrysse – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
In anatomical research and education, three-dimensional visualization of anatomical structures is crucial for understanding spatial relationships in diagnostics, surgical planning, and teaching. While computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) offer valuable insights, they are often expensive and require specialized resources.…

Seth M. Alexander; Kaylyn B. Pogson-Morowitz; Corey S. Johnson – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Three-dimensional (3D) modeling is a recent, innovative approach to teaching anatomy. There is little literature, however, to suggest how 3D modeling is best used to teach students and whether or not students can gain the same level of understanding as they might use more traditional, hands-on, teaching methods. This study evaluated the use of a…

Geetika Ail; Frances Freer; Chui Shan Chan; Melissa Jones; John Broad; Gian Paulo Canale; Pedro Elston; Jessica Leeney; Paula Vickerton – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Immersive virtual reality (i-VR) is a powerful tool that can be used to explore virtual models in three dimensions. It could therefore be a valuable tool to supplement anatomical teaching by providing opportunities to explore spatial anatomical relationships in a virtual environment. However, there is a lack of consensus in the literature as to…

Yassine Yachou; Olivier Samson; Olivier Lasvergnas – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
While traditional anatomy education often emphasizes passive learning and rote memorization, it seldom employs constructivist theories that focus on active, hands-on experiences for effective learning. This study tests the hypothesis that tactile experiences with modeling clay enhance geometric mental representation more effectively than verbal…

Alex Morichon; Guillaume Dannhoff; Laurent Barantin; Christophe Destrieux; Igor Lima Maldonado – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Traditional teaching methods struggle to convey three-dimensional concepts effectively. While 3D virtual models and virtual reality platforms offer a promising approach to teaching anatomy, their cost and specialized equipment pose limitations, especially in disadvantaged areas. A simpler alternative is to use virtual 3D models displayed on…

Guimarães, Daniel Menezes; Valério-Gomes, Bruna; de Araújo, Rafael Lames; de Oliveira Cudischevitch, Cecilia; Uziel, Daniela – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Anatomy is the branch discipline focused on studying organisms' physical structures and parts. Although technological advances are broadening the anatomy study, the practices of prosection and dissection of human cadavers and animals remain a primary teaching method. Despite the large body of research supporting its benefits, in some countries,…

Herblum, Jordana; Honig, Jesse; Kasoff, Madison; Koestler, Jennifer; Catano, Daniel; Petersen, Kristina H. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
An understanding of forearm and wrist anatomy is necessary for the diagnosis and treatment of various injuries. Evidence supports the use of peer-assisted learning (PAL) as an effective resource for teaching basic science courses. First-year medical students across three class years participated in an optional PAL kinesthetic workshop wherein…

Hands-on dissections using cadaveric tissues for neuroanatomical education are not easily available in many educational institutions due to financial, safety, and ethical factors. Supplementary pedagogical tools, for instance, 3D models of anatomical specimens acquired with photogrammetry are an efficient alternative to democratize the 3D…

Rocha-Martínez, Nadia; López-Ordaz, Reyes; Rendón-Franco, Emilio; Muñoz-García, Claudia I. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Wildlife veterinarians are necessary for zoonotic diseases and species loss management, and there is a rising interest to enroll at veterinary schools with the wish to work in zoo and wildlife medicine. However, teaching wildlife is challenging due to the difficulty faced by universities to work with wild animal specimens. The aim of the present…
