The history and future of the 3D 'you and me'

How anatomy is taught in the 21st century is the topic up for discussion at the latest Café Med event this Monday February 20th.

Dr Flora Groening, Senior Lecturer in Anatomy at the University of Aberdeen, and Professor Alan Denison, Consultant Radiologist at NHS Grampian and MBChB Programme Lead at the University of Aberdeen, will share their insights into how the study of human anatomy has changed.

Dr Groening explains: “Advances in 3D Visualisation technology allow us to explore the human body in new ways.  We will talk about the history of imaging in Aberdeen, how we use 3D imaging in our Anatomy teaching, interview our 3D modeller, Laura, about how these 3D models are created and even do a demonstration with selected 3D models.

 “We’ll show datasets based on actual MRI and CT scans of real clinical cases (of course anonymised) and healthy volunteers (including myself!).

“After a short break, we will be happy to answer questions from the audience and discuss the benefits of this new technology for teaching.”

The event is part of the University of Aberdeen’s popular Cafe Med series which is hosted by the University’s Public Engagement with Research Unit. The Café Med series invites leading researchers and clinicians to discuss how current research is being translated into improved treatments and care in an informal café setting.  This event will be held at the Suttie Centre Lecture Theatre , Foresterhill from 6pm to 7.30pm on Monday 20 February and is free to attend.

Full details of the series and other events in the University’s wider programme can be found at www.engagingaberdeen.co.uk
