A new education and clinical training solution for medical students and staff is now installed and being used for the first time in a medical center in the Netherlands.

The portal will enable all medical students and staff to access and interact digitally with full-body Computed Tomography (CT) rendered virtual-representations of real-life medical cases for improved understanding and insight into the human anatomy during their studies.

The Education Portal was developed by Sectra (Linköping, Sweden) and installed at the Amsterdam Medical Center (AMC; Amsterdam, the Netherlands), Amsterdam Center for Radiological Anatomy (ACRA). The system will be used to help combine anatomy and radiology data for medical education purposes. The AMC already has approximately 500 full-body CT cases and will scan around 150 more bodies used for medical education every year.

The cloud-based Education Portal also allows remote access and enables the cases to be shared between portal users outside AMC creating an international shared educational workspace. Read access to all medical image types, including 3D renderings, will allow student and researchers to find anatomical variations in multiple cases.

Lecturer in Anatomy and Embryology at the Academic Medical Center, MD Bernadette S de Bakker, said, "To interact with the 3D renderings on the Sectra Table enables our students to learn and explore in a realistic environment. The portal itself is yet another way for enhancing medical training since students can access cases from their own workstations."
