Digital anatomy

The Digital anatomy is branch of anatomy which is related to the processing of the complete human body into a system accessible format. The knowledge of anatomy is very important for the medical practice. Usually in hospitals, anatomy is studied by the cadaveric dissection. Because of some problems related to the use of cadavers, the anatomical education had a greater shift towards alternative modes of education like the basic processes of embalming, plastination and advanced computer-based viewing or imaging. New multimedia and simulation technologies have made the 3D viewing of the human body possible. This digital anatomy has both the advantages and disadvantages at some points. Scientists have also proven that new technologies can only enhance anatomical information, but they are not a complete replacement for cadavers.
