Using VR to Enhance Anatomy Education for Medical Imaging Learners
Embargo Lift Date
The Ruth Lilly Medical Library’s Nexus Collaborative Learning Lab (Nexus) and the Medical Imaging Technology (MIT) Program at IUSM have partnered to create a series of Virtual Reality (VR) modules to enhance student comprehension and retention of anatomy for Cardiac Interventional (CI), Computed Tomography (CT), Vascular Interventional (VI), and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). This presentation will introduce you to VR and its applications in medical education, and describe the VR service available through the Nexus. Learn how a VR app for anatomy education, 3D Organon VR, was used to create greater student-content interactivity and to add flexibility to instruction.
