The device is so unique, there are less than a dozen of them in the world.
NBC 2's Tony Grant shows how the Anatomage Table is changing the way tomorrow's medical professionals will learn.
It seems like everywhere you look someone is reading an e-mail or playing a game on their tablet.
Well imagine if similar technology could be used to teach future medical professionals.
"The table has the ability to do anatomy and physiology. We can use it as a virtual cadaver. The difference being with a cadaver...that once you do a dissection...you're dissected. With this all I have to do is hit a reset button."
The Anatomage Table at Union Hospital uses touch screen technology to allow students to see what once could only be taught in a text book.
"Imagine being in a classroom and listening to a professor tell you about a specific part of the anatomy...versus coming into here and having the professor show you on a three dimensional piece of technology."
The Rural Health Innovation Collaborative Simulation Center now provides students with a tool to see things that would have been almost impossible on a real cadaver.
And even professionals are seeing the benefits.
"They can even put in current patient's MRI...CAT scans...and get 3D modeling from it. It allows them to utilize the technology for real life patients...not just for learning."
The Anatomage Table is the only one in Indiana, and one of only ten in the whole world.
The tool is something that a student with any medical interest can learn from.
"We are constantly bringing in students from a multitude of disciplines. That work together...they learn together and they learn about each other."
