Software (Virtual Reality Technology) Allows Doctors To Practice On Virtual Patients

Got this little summary in my ACPE Daily Digest Today:

The Washington Post (11/8, Wan) reports on "new software that uses the virtual reality technology employed by video game developers to view human anatomy. Called iMedic, the program creates a 3-D X-ray that allows doctors to examine the body from every angle." The "software exemplifies how the video gaming industry has penetrated academia, offering researchers and students a new way to understand techniques that aren't always easy to teach." And "as the technology becomes more refined, it is gradually earning the trust of medical professionals."
