Fort Morgan, CO. 05/30/17. Morgan Community College (MCC) announces the purchase of an Anatomage Table, making MCC one of only a few community colleges in Colorado to use this technology in the classroom. Funding for the table came from the Colorado Community College System Innovation Award Program.
The Anatomage Table is a virtual dissection table that features advanced technology in anatomical education that has been cleared by the FDA for applications in medical diagnosis and clinical use.
“The table allows for a virtual human cadaver dissection experience,” explains MCC Instructor Jeff Coon. “It allows students to see real life images of all human anatomical structures, both in their fully intact state and in various stages of dissection. It offers X-ray, CT Scan and MRI images of a variety of pathologies such as fractures, surgical implants and vascular anomalies.”
The virtual table will be used within the Physical Therapist Assistant program, Nursing program, Radiology program, Anatomy and Physiology classes, and numerous other programs offered through MCC. The Anatomage Table will help MCC instructors to better explain and visualize the anatomy, disease processes and medical intervention used in today’s medical field. MCC students will utilize this amazing learning tool to better prepare them for their careers in healthcare.
“It can be used as a radiology workstation as well as a tool to review surgical cases, patient consultations and medical research,” shares MCC Instructor Susan Meyer. “The accuracy of the human anatomy is of the highest quality allowing for an exceptional anatomy education.”
“Students are provided a hands on experience in human anatomy beyond the typical lab presentation, and will be an invaluable resource to enhance their studies in all areas of anatomy and physiology,” adds Coon.
MCC is now registering for fall courses. For more information visit a MCC location nearest you or go online to MorganCC.edu.
