for students and residents
THOMAS C. WEINERT , is an Associate with Touch of Life Technologies,
Inc., creators of The Visible Human Dissector software. Mr. Weinert
will demonstrate the VH Dissector, which provides access to 3D renderings
of photographic anatomy from the Visible Human Project. This virtual
cadaver includes over 2000 identified anatomic structures and the
cross-sections from which they were derived. The program can be used
as a free-form reference or navigated with user-created lesson plans.
This unique program provides the ability to approach the human body
from any combination of traditional views, including cross-sectional,
systemic, clinical, surface, regional and surgical anatomy. Hands-on
opportunity will be part of the session.
