User Stories

3D printing to learn anatomy

I used TinkerCad to create the CD model and I found that even my understanding of the anatomy was enhanced.
- Haley Nation

To date, I have printed twelve 3D cardiac models both with normal and abnormal cardiac anatomy.

Teaching with the 3x3 video wall

​I thought being able to integrate two types of technologies to enhance the teaching experience was great. I was able to run my power point with live musculoskeletal scanning being displayed on the other side of the screen.

Virtual reality to learn anatomy

This makes so much more sense than learning anatomy from a picture. It’s even better than a screen where you can move it in a 3D plane.
