SAN JOSE, Calif., March 28 , 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Anatomage Inc., makers of the world’s first and only life-sized digital dissection table, announced today that the Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD) in California is the first school district in the nation to purchase Anatomage Table 5 systems for its high school health-medical pathways. Recently launched at the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) meeting in Orlando, FL, Table 5 features the highest-quality imaging software to examine real human anatomy. Anatomage Table 5 includes 3 full body cadavers that are completely annotated and fully dissectible. The expanded image library contains 1,400 entries and offers a new category for microscopic histology scans for a variety of cell types. High-resolution regional anatomy allows for the viewing of small structures such as nerves or blood vessels that are difficult to see by any other means. New ultra-high quality (UHQ) visualization is available for all clinical cases and loaded scans while the touchscreen display provides instant access to photorealistic human anatomy.
“The virtual dissection table shows great promise as an educational tool,” said LBUSD Superintendent Christopher J. Steinhauser. “We want our students to have every possible advantage as we prepare them for success in college and careers. By piloting this device with high school students, we’re giving them and their teachers the same, key resource used by medical schools and universities.”
The advanced technology of the Anatomage Table has proven to be highly beneficial for education as it enhances the learning experience and improves student performance. Studies have shown both qualitative and quantitative improvements in student test scores in anatomy courses.
“Anatomage Tables have been adopted by medical schools, universities and other tertiary institutions all over the world for years and we’re very happy to see our technology at home in progressive high schools such as those in LBUSD,” said Jack Choi, President and Chief Executive Officer of Anatomage. “We are confident that instructors and students will be very impressed with the quality and accuracy of real human anatomy. We believe the Anatomage Table is the must-have tool in every anatomy department.”
