Virtual Anatomy – Explorative Study

We conducted our first explorative study for our BMWi funded project Virtual Anatomy together with our project partners Dornheim Medical Images GmbH and the Institute of Anatomy.

On February 16th and 18th, we invited ca. 20 medical students each day. After an assessment of their spatial ability, the students were split in two groups. Each group had to elaborate a medical scenario, one with an established approach, i.e., anatomy atlases, and the other with the application Dornheim Segmenter, respectively. After that, the students were tested on their abilities to label different structures on a body donor as well as recreate a medical region in a puzzle.

We thank all medical students for participation. This kind of a well planned and executed study with end users, was the first in our group. Now we are excited to analyze and interpret the results!
