SENECA FALLS, N.Y. — Northeast College of Health Sciences in Seneca Falls announced it has opened a new digital anatomy lab that includes the “most technologically advanced tools” for teaching human anatomy.
Those attending the formal opening event saw hands-on demonstrations of the college’s newest Anatomage virtual dissection tables, along with the lab space. The space’s official name is the Computerized Anatomy Resource Lab, or the CARL, per the school’s website.
The CARL digital-anatomy lab includes four installed Anatomage-8 tables, which the school describes as the “most technologically advanced 3D anatomy visualization and virtual dissection tool available.” In addition, the space houses an additional portable Anatomage unit known as Table Clinical.
The stationary tables highlight 3D visuals of real human cadavers, which can be mirrored on jumbo display screens on the lab wall. Instructors can move Table Clinical into classrooms across campus to support lectures and coursework, the school said.
The Anatomage human-anatomy system has been popular with Northeast College students since it introduced its first Anatomage table in the summer of 2022, the school contends. The tables allow students to explore anatomical structures from multiple views, and review and “dive deeply” into real-life case studies via the touchscreen technology.
The CARL will be available to students, along with the college’s traditional method of learning about the body by using human cadavers, the school said.
