Reimagine the metaverse: what does it mean for medical education?

Gaming, bitcoin, and social media interactions are often associated with metaverse. But did you know that the untapped potential of a metaverse lies in education?

Let’s imagine a metaverse – a world where you can discover the science behind your human body. And it’s not just about naming your anatomical parts or locating where your cerebellum is; it takes you on a journey to unmask everything about why your body is alive.

3D Visualization of Living Anatomy

The term living anatomy doesn’t sound familiar to the broad audience, does it? It refers to the anatomy visible in living humans – which can’t be done on a cadaver. For a long time, cadavers have been used as the primary teaching tool to visualize, dissect and examine human specimens. But with their limitations in displaying physiology and expensive maintenance fees, cadavers are getting replaced with 3D technology tools.

The role of 3D anatomy visualization isn’t only critical to providing a spatial view of anatomical relations but also to ensuring the accuracy of anatomical structures. And in the metaverse, its value is amplified.

Virtual reality headsets can help users to experience real-time visualization of living anatomy. For example, they can see what structures are composed of a living heart, what those structures look like in shape, color, and size, and the spatial relations between them.

Get Sucked inside a Human Body

Inside our bodies lies a world of both the known and unknown. To discover this world, we need to travel into it. And the metaverse allows this to happen. 

Recently, the Anatomage VR is released to take users on a trip inside a human body.

When you wear a headset with Anatomage VR application, you’re pulled into a world inside a human body where you can travel through and interact with different body parts, from anatomical structures to veins to arteries, bones, and muscles. The world inside us is then revealed before your eyes.
