The Anatomage Table is the most technologically advanced 3D interactive dissection table in the medical world today—and Gettysburg College is getting two of them.
The state-of-the-art tables will arrive on campus this summer thanks to generous gifts from Gettysburg alumni Ray Truex Jr. ’63, P’94, retired spine and brain neurosurgeon and a medical director at the Pennsylvania Medical Society, and Gail Seygal ’67, a retired occupational therapy coordinator.
Check out how Gettysburg College’s new Anatomage Tables will embolden student discovery and revolutionize our classroom experience:
- Our innovative tables allow students to virtually explore full-sized human bodies in a way once only accessible through traditional cadaver dissection.
- With a simple swipe of their finger, students can rotate a simulated patient 360 degrees and dissect in any direction—and at any depth—to reveal anatomical features in vivid detail.
- Students can visualize beating hearts and respiration, and they can even zoom-in to view structures as small as nerves and blood vessels.
- Our Anatomage Tables offer more than 20 high-resolution regional anatomy cases, and more than 1,000 pathological examples for students to explore—providing a lab experience they typically wouldn’t receive until medical school.
- Interested in becoming a veterinarian? Our tables include full-body cat and dog cadavers based on real tissue data, as well as 150 other CT scans of various animal species.
- The tables can also be used as radiology workstations, a tool for surgical case reviews and comparative analysis, patient consultation, and pioneering medical research.
- Faculty can utilize the tables for labs, lectures, class reviews, and testing.
- In fact, the Anatomage Tables are relied upon for both teaching and assessment at top medical institutions around the globe, including Stanford University, the University of Michigan, and the Mayo Clinic.
- Above all else, the cutting-edge technology enhances classroom learning and prepares students for meaningful careers out in world.
