Photogrammetry of Human Specimens: An Innovation in Anatomy Education.
Journal of medical education and curricular development
2018; 5: 2382120518799356
Cadaver-based anatomical education is supplemented by a wide range of pedagogical tools-from artistic diagrams, to photographs and videos, to 3-dimensional (3D) models. However, many of these supplements either simplify the true anatomy or are limited in their use and distribution. Photogrammetry, which overlaps 2-dimensional (2D) photographs to create digital 3D models, addresses such shortcomings by creating interactive, authentic digital models of cadaveric specimens. In this exploratory pilot study, we used a photogrammetric setup and rendering software developed by an outside group to produce digital 3D models of 8 dissected specimens of regional anatomy. The photogrammetrically produced anatomical models authentically and precisely represented their original specimens. These interactive models were deemed accurate and teachable by faculty at the Stanford University Division of Clinical Anatomy. Photogrammetry is, according to these results, another possible method for rendering cadaveric materials into interactive 3D models, which can be used for anatomical education. These models are more detailed than many computer-generated versions and provide more visuospatial information than 2D images. Future researchers and educators could use such technology to create institutional libraries of digital 3D anatomy for medical education.
