RVC shares anatomy images with Wellcome Trust

The eMedia Unit has been working with the Wellcome Trust to share images of anatomical specimens at the RVC. These range from historical dissections stored in formalin pots - brought alive by the latest in digital photography.

The images are free for users to access in low resolution from the Wellcome Trust Images site. The Trust also provides access to high resolution versions which can be printed out on A0 at the most amazing quality .... we have several in our office and they look great!

Virtual Patients - Cardiocases

The RVC has developed an interactive online learning platform in which the user navigates through clinical cardiology scenarios. This provides vets and veterinary students with a simulated experience in treating cardiac small animal patients. Compared with passive methods of learning, an interactive case-based approach promotes development of clinical decision-making skills and is a challenging and fun way to learn.

This Flash simulation is the first in a series of interactive cardiology virtual patients. Users can apply their knowledge and decision making skills to manage a cardiology case from presentation to treatment. This project was supported by Novartis. Requires Flash 9 or later.
