No More Human Dissection Of Cadavers

1005 words - 5 pages

The articles “The Virtual Anatomy, Ready for Dissection” written by Natasha Singer and “Anatomy Lessons, A Vanishing Rite for Young Doctors” by Abigail Zuger are both from The New York Times.

All the students can click on different types of muscles, tissue, and organs as if they were cutting through a real body. It is a way for students to have a better understanding without the smell, mess, and mistakes. It is believed that the dead doesn’t compare to a living body due to the embalming fluid and how it takes its toll on the body.
The creation is still new and being developed but has great potential to increase revenue and improve health education. The study is still too new to know if digital human models will help medical students understand anatomy more deeply than dissecting cadavers alone. It does give medical students some advantages over real cadavers. If a student removes an organ on an actual body they cannot put it back but if they used the virtual body they can go back as...
