Studies have shown that the HoloAnatomy® Software is not only effective and time-saving, but preferable over cadaveric dissection in some aspects.
In a controlled trial in the musculoskeletal system, students who learned using the HoloAnatomy® Software achieved the same scores as those that were in the cadaver lab, but the ones who learned in HoloLens did so in about half of the time. This has since been repeated and the results confirmed. Other studies have shown a dramatic improvement in students’ long-term retention of knowledge when using the HoloAnatomy® Software as compared to a cadaver lab.
The HoloAnatomy® Software has now been installed as the primary means of medical education at the CWRU SOM since the academic year 2019/2020, and was even modified to be taught virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown.
