Three-dimensional (3D) imaging libraries for the creation of virtual human models for use in education in the health

3D imaging is becoming an increasingly popular and important too in medical education. The anatomy is the founation for all health sciences and all groups of health professionals. Medical/dental students, pharmacists, physicians assistants, nurses, medical rehabilitation professionals, human biology and even arts students, will receive some form of anatomy training during their professional career. 3D virutal anatomy teaching facilitates the understanding of spatial structural relationships and facilitates a significantly enhanced and sustainable learning experience. This project aims at creating 3D virtual anatomy models of the human head. The potential of 3D imaging and virtual visualization in medical education is currently underutilized.
