Virtual reality to learn anatomy

Brennan Ross, a physician assistant student who describes himself as “tech obsessed,” has introduced his student colleagues to some of the library’s virtual reality applications available in the Technology Innovation Sandbox using our VIVE headset.

"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. For example, there are two ways that you’re always being shown the spine in images, but you don’t know how they relate to each other and how they translate. Virtual reality and 3D printing help you see instantly how they relate.
