Revealing Bodies:  Under the Skin from Museo La Specola (Webcast)
Running Time:
1:04:44
Join us for an interactive webcast that includes a visit to Museo La Specola in Florence, Italy. The museum houses a collection of exquisite life-sized wax medical models that in the late 18th century represented the cutting edge of 3-dimensional imaging technology. We'll also talk with Dr. Hugh Patterson, Chief Anatomy Professor at UCSF, about how today's medical students study anatomy, and with John Murray of 3-D Systems, about the latest developments in solid object imaging.
