The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) has acquired a 4K-resolution virtual dissection table that allows students to explore human anatomy in 3D with simple gestures common on the average smartphone.

Students can swipe, scroll and zoom to rotate images in 3D, explore inside the human body, swipe off sections with a virtual “knife” and touch to remove layers or organs so they can explore deeper inside the body.

Digital archives from UAMS and the wider public give students access to cases, where they might see the effects of a specific condition or treatment. They can learn to read different types of scans — like CT, MRI, X-ray and ultrasound — or practice their skills with microscopy.
