Dissecting Digital Cadavers: UH is First Optometry College in U.S. To Have Its Own Anatomage Tables

“The Anatomage Table provides an innovative, world class learning opportunity for our students. In a University as diverse as ours, this will give us the opportunity to accommodate students who, because of religious, cultural reasons or past trauma could not work with human cadavers,” said UH College of Optometry dean and Greeman-Petty professor, Earl L. Smith.

Then there’s the practical side of dissection. With a human cadaver only so much cutting can be done, and much of the internal views are blocked.
