When they receive a cadaver, they scan it four times in specific orientations:
- Head and neck only
- Full body
- Full body with arterial contrast
- Full body with arterial and venous contrast
A radiologist and his team from Heidelberg University also recently published an article in European Radiology focusing on the Anatomage Table and learning success. They compared test scores between students who used the Table and students who took conventional anatomy classes.1
They found that:
- Students provided with CT scans of cadavers had 27% higher anatomy scores.1
- Students liked having CT scans available to learn gross anatomy.1
