Anatomy textbook comes to life

Medical students in the near future will be able to benefit from the CAVEman – essentially a high resolution model of a functioning human. This is made possible by integrating data from different 3D imaging sources along with textbooks, and is capable of scaling the entire body view down to micro scale structures within a virtual reality room. The CAVEman hopes to help medical researchers investigate the genetics of various diseases as well as find new approaches to targeted treatments. Sounds pretty high tech and expensive at the same time, but it will definitely be a boon to those who have poor visualization skills.
