What is the Anatomage Table?

Our Anatomy Table is by Anatomage. The Anatomage Table is one of the most technologically advanced anatomy visualization systems for anatomy education. It allows you to view, manipulate, and dissect a 3D cadaver in real-time. The intuitive touch screen environment is easy to use and is available as a learning tool for those interested in studying anatomy.

The Anatomage Table Features: 

  • Real human anatomy in a life-size scale
  • All-in-one, touch-interactive display system
  • Clean, safe, reusable technology
  • Classroom and lab integration
  • Accurate gross anatomy, segmentation models, and the ability to upload countless new scans
  • Quiz mode to visually test your knowledge
  • Animal case models

Ethics

Ethical Considerations

The content of the Anatomage Table is produced using real human cadavers. We expect all users to treat the content (gross anatomy models) with the same deference and respect you would use for human cadavers. With this in mind, we ask the following:

  • Do not take pictures of the Table or any associated images with personal devices including, but not limited to: cameras, cell phones, tablets, laptops, etc.

  • Any images exported from the Table are to be used for educational purposes only - do not post these to social media.

  • We ask that users refrain from nicknaming the models. Please refer to the gross anatomy models by their provided designation (i.e. Caucasian Male).
