Methodist Mansfield Medical Center Grant Offers Health Science and Agriculture Students Advanced Anatomy

MANSFIELD, TEXAS – Wednesday, Feb. 19 will mark the unveiling of the most technologically-advanced anatomy visualization system for more than 3,000 health science and agriculture students. Mansfield ISD (MISD) has received a life-sized virtual dissection table for anatomy education through a grant from Methodist Mansfield Medical Center and the MISD Education Foundation.

The digital device will help MISD students visualize anatomy in 3D, exactly as they would on a fresh cadaver, which will help the future physicians and veterinarians. Because of the hands-on experience, accuracy of the human and animal anatomy and multitude of clinical cases included with the Anatomage Table, Mansfield ISD students will have an advantage in understanding anatomy, physiology and diagnostic imaging.

“The Anatomage Table is an incredibly relevant tool for MISD students to gain knowledge about health science and agriculture. The realness provided with this tool will ensure that students pursuing those fields of study will be college and career ready upon graduation,” said MISD Superintendent Dr. Kimberley Cantu. “This opportunity for our students and staff members would not be possible without our valued partnership with Methodist Mansfield Medical Center and the MISD Education Foundation, which support our vision to be a leader in education.”

With the Anatomage Table, students can view photorealistic anatomical structures that research shows has improved student retention and test scores. The table is FDA-cleared for use in assisting medical diagnosis and can be utilized as a powerful radiology workstation, 3D tool for surgical case review or medical research.

“Methodist Mansfield is proud to be helping Mansfield ISD prepare students for health science and agriculture careers in our ever-changing economy,” says Methodist Mansfield President Juan Fresquez. “With this Anatomage Table, students can have a more interactive learning experience and can gain the skills needed to obtain certifications and enter living-wage careers that benefit this community.”

Methodist Mansfield Medical Center sponsored the Anatomage Table by giving a $75,000 grant through the MISD Education Foundation. A live demonstration of the Anatomage Table will be Wednesday, Feb. 19 from 9 to 10 a.m. at Ben Barber Innovation Academy (1120 W. Debbie Lane, Mansfield, TX 76063).
