The first-year medical curriculum at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine includes a 6-week long block of gross and Radiologic anatomy. Prior to students' dissection, each cadaver was scanned with a high resolution CT scanner. During various didactic activities and at each dissection table interactive volumetric color 3D renderings and multi-planar reconstructions of these cadavers as well as de-identified reference datasets from normal clinical studies are available. These images are streamed to laptops in the anatomy laboratory through web-based software from a central rendering server (ViTALConnect R, Vital Images, Inc.). The combined anatomy/radiology curriculum with the addition of image renderings allows for better integration of specific structures encountered during dissection with their images as they would be seen in a living patient. The exposure of medical students to modern clinical imaging techniques allows for better integration of anatomy and pathology apparent on clinical radiology studies utilized for patient care.
