Med’s Mark Griswold and Executive Director of CWRU’s Interactive Commons, Erin Henninger, highlight ways holographic technology has changed learning for medical students

How VR is helping prevent the need for cadavers
LifewireMark Griswold, professor of radiology and director of MRI research, and Erin Henninger, executive director of the university’s Interactive Commons, highlighted the ways Microsoft Hololens and Case Western Reserve’s own HoloAnatomy has changed learning for medical students. “Unlike the cadaver lab, where the preserved body’s colors and textures can make it difficult to discern, say, a nerve from a blood vessel—or to see a lymph node—HoloAnatomy gives students a crystal clear 3D map of these anatomical structures and their relationships to each other,” Griswold said.
