Save to My Collections
Three-dimensional computer graphics (3DCG) can visually provide information to the users. In medical fields, researchers work to apply the advantages of 3DCG to medical education. This study reports the educational effectiveness of the interactive 3DCG. Our team has developed the interactive 3DCG shoulder model. Participants (27 men and 73 women, average age =18.06±1.05 years, age range 16-25 years) were divided to 3DCG group and Text and Image group. The Text and Image group used the text and image materials. On the other hand, the 3DCG group was trained to use the interactive 3DCG shoulder model, in addition to the text and images. We implemented a questionnaire survey and then drew a comparison between two groups. Our results show that the interactive 3DCG is more effective than only text and images in medical education, moreover it can increase the motivation of students.
