Vascular Radiological Anatomy and the development of interactive teaching platforms
Anatomy and Radiology are subjects widely present in health courses at universities. The intersection between Radiological Anatomy and recent technologies, such as interactive teaching platforms, is characterized as a tendency to be followed in the educational sphere, and the implications of this process are not much debated. The Department of Anatomy of Juiz de Fora Federal University has begun the development of an atlas of radiological vascular anatomy, which features printed and interactived versions. It presents computed tomography images taken on multislice devices from 16 to 128 channels, and the images are from the personal authors’ archives. The Radiologic Vascular Atlas provides the identification of vascular structures in study and makes easier the integration of knowledge acquired in classrooms with the visualization of routine complementary imaging exams. The indisputable presence of complementary imaging examinations in the routine of current health professionals makes valid the strategy of integration between the traditional teaching method and active learning practices, which have recently gained prominence, due to its effectiveness in setting knowledge.
